Ohhhh cool! I'm eating breakfast at Kona for the first time this year and I don't think I've ever seen the inside! Looks so pretty, I can't wait to see it in person!!
A bride on the bus? Hahaha I wonder what that was all about!

I love how you guys always include pool/DTD days in your vacation too, it's one of the reasons I always like taking the longer trips so we always have time for these.

We loved Kona for dinner, but seeing your pics has me really wanting to try it for breakfast sometime as well, and I love Shanleigh's earrings....it's so awesome how shopping in World Showcase is always so different from the rest of the WDW stores.

A bride on the bus? That is a very interesting situation....I would have thought they would have arranged their own private transportation.

I can't wait to see what you girls picked up at DTD...one of the greatest shopping destinations there is

You realize of course, that so far this is the opposite of a 'down' day?

I seriously don't know how you managed to stay on the monorail. I see that, I'm out the door.

That's kinda odd. It's not unheard of, but... considering the money that's already pouring in, you'd think an OJ refill wouldn't break the bank.

Absolutely beautiful scenery. And that stuff that's behind Shanleigh is okay too.

I've heard that.

Of course I heard it from Imelda Marcos... but still...

Hmmm... I'm thinking She forgot her shoes and is going to DTD to buy a pair of 'Bride' flip flops?

Just an update.....indeed wifi is on at Magic Kingdom and it's free throughout the park. We were able to use the Mobile Magic app on our IPhones and it was awesome! No data usage and we can use iMessage to communicate between iPhones and our daughters 4th gen iPod touch. Sounds like the other parks will have wifi soon. If I discover any other parks this trip I will pass that info on!

Now I love Disney transportation and enjoy the bus as part of the whole experience but I think in a wedding dress I would have to take a taxi. I would be afraid that the bottom of the dress would get so dirty. Oh well, I hope she had a great wedding.

I love how you are pointing out all of the jewelry that Shanleigh got. I love getting little things from the countries.

Sounds like your relaxing day is off to a great start with breakfast at Kona. It's probably our favorite place to eat.

A bride on the bus? I find that just a little strange........

Sounds like a great start to your day! I really wanted one of those bead bracelets while we were down there but totally forgot where to get them until you just mentioned it! Now i'll have to wait until next time, and I can have an excuse to get back there sooner haha. I look forward to reading about how DTD went!

Ahh...love the beginning of another relaxing day at the World!

Yeah, there's totally an interesting story behind the bride on the bus. Has to be.

I've been wanting to try the Lilikoi juice, but I won't be eating a Poly breakfast (that I know of); do you know if they serve it at 'Ohana at night or at Captain Cook's?

Kona breakfast looks so yummy! I need to try those pancakes!!!

I love love love the juice at Boma! I wonder if it is the same?
I agree with the previous poster...Disney should have given Shanleigh free refills.

Kona is a gorgeous restaurant! We never miss a diner there.

I'm excited about the free Wifi in MK. I can't wait to try the Magic Mobile app!

I bet your Sister & family are having a wonderful time in WDW! I wish them a great trip!

Bride on a bus ??? ..... only at Disney!
She should have taken the carriage.

Hello Queen!!

Well, first off I need to share my joy, I FINALLY got to plan a trip! My daughter, son and I are going back in January and I cannot wait!

I love it that you and your DD go to Kona for breakfast as well and (of course!) enjoy the press pot coffee, because we always make a point to go as well!

Loved Shanleigh's earrings too, another thing we have in common, I always buy jewelry on every trip as well.

I'm looking forward to hearing what you did for the rest of your 'off' day!!

Talk to you again soon,
