OOOOH- Food & Wine would be a GREAT opportunity for a date night!

On our last trip, we put the kids in the Sandcastle Club- which is the kid's room at the Beach Club Resort- and they LOVED it! They have "old fashioned" freestanding video games like the original Ms. Pacman from the 80's.

That would be the perfect place for the kids to hang out while you do Food & Wine because it's so close to Epcot if you use the back entrance and take the boat.

I like the way you are thinking! We just may have to do that sometime soon...

Day Seven

We awoke early to start Day Seven and got to the buses by 6:45 or so.
We boarded one towards the Magic Kingdom and the driver was nice enough to drop us off at our destination (we were the only ones on the bus after all).
Yup!
We were headed BACK to the Polynesian!!!


This time we had our matching Polynesian outfits and even had Jared in tow.
He was finally feeling better and ready to get back into the World again.
It was an early start as we had a 7:30 date with Lilo and Stitch for breakfast.
Yup, it was back-to-back ‘Ohana for us – except this time everyone was invited!
After a great picture with the ‘Ohana backdrop that we just had to buy, we wandered the 2nd floor a bit…








The princess and I then went on a Hidden Mickey Hunt…




But then I decided to check out a little detail of the Poly.
On the second floor, along one of the sides is a hut.
Upon further inspection, you can plainly see that it is the Customs Office.
However, the official is nowhere to be found.
Apparently they are “Out to Lunch” and will be “Back in August.”
The details in the office are perfect though.
Take a look!
















Back in civilization, little X was hiding.
Was this really the best he could do?
Little bugger...


Luckily, he didn't have to hide long as they called us in about then...

‘Ohana Revisited

As soon as we got to our table, Lilo was making her way over.
So we started with some pictures of course!


Our seats were right next to the window with an awesome view of the Castle.


After Lilo, we started with breakfast which is always a blast here.
Eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, and biscuits all family style along with Aloha Juice, Mickey waffles, and fruit!
They even made some “cheesy eggs” for the kids after a special request.






Then Mickey made his rounds.
Ummm, Mickey – I think there’s something growing out of your head.
You might want to get that looked at…


Pluto was next.
Silly doggie!




Next up was the parade!
The kids always grab some maraccas, find a character, and have a blast!








After the parade, Lilo strolled by but was playing hide ‘n’ seek.
She finally came over to see what X was doing…






And then she posed with the rest of the gang one more time.






Last but not least was Experiment 626 himself.
Bring on Stitch!






But before we headed out, Mickey came around again.
So we figured we could get an actual picture with Mickey this time.
That is, a nice picture without anything growing out of his head.

Tiki Touble

And then it was back to the tikis.
This is always where we hang out while the kids take turns changing in the restrooms.
And it’s always fun since those tikis are so mischievous.
Then again, is it the tikis that are mischievous or my kids?














Once everyone changed, we headed towards the monorail.
The boys were so excited they were wrestling.


While J decided it was a good place to sit down.


Finally, everyone settled down.
And relaxed.
How cute is this?


So, can anyone guess where we were headed today?

I'm so glad the kids did not miss out on Ohana afterall! I have always wanted to try breakfast there and it really does look yummy.

I love everyone's matchy-matchy shirts. Cute!

I'm not sure what X is thinking about Lilo. He looks a little...skeptical...shall we say?

X was very anti-girl characters this trip, that's for sure.

And if you've never tried 'Ohana for breakfast, you should give it a try!
It's definitely one of our favorites.
It's fun, good food, monorail access to the parks afterwards, and you even get to see Mickey!

All I need to do to prove you wrong on that one is to try it again but *not* during a trip down for the Goofy Challenge, and make sure not to overeat afterwards.

Glad to have you back!
Our princess was really very excited to meet Rapunzel.
She loved Tangled and I think Rapunzel and Tiana are now among her favorite princesses.

Views from the Sky

Hopping off at the Ticket and Transportation Center, we transferred to the Epcot Monorail!
I took a cool Spaceship Earth closeup of the panels.
But apparently Mom and Unca decided to a have a field day and took ever angle and vantage point as we arrived in Epcot.
So here we go…

Living with the Land

Finally we pulled into the station and they took a break (for now).
The park just opened so we headed straight for the Land pavilion to snag Soarin’ fastpasses.
Then we decided to hop on Living with the Land all together.


We sat right behind this person who seems like they’d be more at home at the Animal Kingdom.
The kids thought the style was cool.


But then Mom and Unca were at it again.
So we have more pictures of this ride than you can imagine.
Here’s our trip in detail…

The Greenhouse

Ok, so that wasn’t so bad.
But they really got carried away in the greenhouse.
I’ve never seen so many pictures of plants.
Have fun…

Nine Pound Lemon

Dude…
Nine Pound Lemon?
Imagine the size of that lemonade!!!

























Now back to the good stuff.
Did you know there are tons of Hidden Mickeys on this ride?
I think we find a new one everytime we ride!








We always like this ride.
It’s relaxing, informative, and just plain cool.
It definitely made us want to take the Behind the Seeds tour (which Mom and Ray did on a later trip but that’s a different story).

So, now that we were back on land, what should we do while waiting for our Soarin’ fastpass window?
Any ideas?
