Now that is one heck of a first day!

I'm so glad you enjoyed 'Ohana! It's my favourite spot to eat (thus far) on the WDW property...I can't wait to get back there!

I'm getting my ready for Day 2!

I can understand why everyone loves 'Ohana, the food does look amazing. I have to say though, it doesn't look like the type of food for DH and me. We're so picky and I think we wouldn't like very much there! However I'm very glad you both had a good meal.

So glAd I just red your Ohana experience. I so want to go there but now I know I will have to investigate further. I have a peanut allergy so it may OT be the est choice. I actually realized last time that when I go next to Disney I really need to declare the allergy and talk to the chef. There was a lot I wanted to try but looked questionable so I just avoided it. I really need to be better

Ohana is such a great restaurant so you really should look into talking to the chef. I would be a shame to miss out on the whole experience without knowing if they have peanut free alternatives.

My wife is a VERY picky eater and this was her favorite meal. I was a bit worried that she wouldn't enjoy it but she LOVED her experience. Then again, I can see it not being everybody's cup of tea. Specially because you can't necessarily pick and choose what you will be having.

Dining Review: Akershus (Storybook Princess Breakfast) Part 1


Soundtrack: Epcot Entrance Music


Welcome back!
Last week I gave you guys a hint as to where we were heading for day 2. It came from the dedication plaque located in front of this park's icon.



Always good to start the day with a little bit of trivia!

Now onto the trip report. We started day 2 with a pre-rope drop breakfast at Akershus. Here's the story of that magical morning.

Once upon a time two princesses decided to have breakfast in a castle


One of the princesses was having a really hard time waking up that morning.


They got on a magical carriage


That brought them to a place of memories...


They made in to EPCOT center before anyone else!










Took a picture with some great friends.






And quickly made their way to the Kingdom of Norway.


Where they conquered the viking in order to gain access to the castle breakfast.


Unfortunately everyone lined up at the wrong spot so the two princesses where amongst the first to be lead into the palace (seriously, line up at the booth at the entrance of the pavillion, not at the door to Akershus)

Dining Review: Akershus (Storybook Princess Breakfast) Part 2

PART 2:
Soundtrack: Disney Princess Medley played by an Orchestra



The princesses met with her royal highness Princess Belle. Who insisted on taking a picture.


Afterwards, they where brought to their table where a handsome gentlemen offered coffee and juice.


The princesses where very hungry so they hurried over to the buffet table where they found plenty of yummy looking food.
















They filled their plates with so much food it made them very happy.


They filled their plates with muffins and croissants and pastries. They even had some fish! ( which was actually very good)


Soon another plate of hot goodies was brought to the princesses. They liked the eggs and the bacon but they LOVED the potatoes!


The sleepy princess got her magic coffee drink and the hyper princess got a good glass of orange sunshine.




Soon enough, more princesses came to visit them at their table. They had the honor of meeting Princess Aurora, Cinderella, Ariel and Snow White!









Soon the magical breakfast came to a close and the princesses left the castle Akershus in search of more adventure.



and they lived happily ever after.

Final Thoughs: Akershus was a good breakfast buffet. We where amongst the first seated so the food as nice and warm in our hot plate and fresh at the buffet. The potatoes where delicious and so was the cold fish (weird! I know). The coffee was not great according to Jess. I would say that this is a normal breakfast buffet. Nothing to write home about but it served it's purpose of filling us up with good food, meeting some princesses and getting us into the park before it opened.

Too cute, loved the story telling!
I always forget about Akershus and then read about it and facepalm myself wondering why I didn't book an early breakfast there!

Day 2: Margo & Jess are gonna do it all! Part 1

I honestly feel that Phineas and Ferb really represent the essence of EPCOT. There's so much to do at Epcot that you really can DO IT ALL! That being said we did not set foot in Future World East because I am too motion sick for Mission Space and too hyperactive for Ellen's Energy Adventure (and test track was M.I.A. during our trip) so imagine what we could of done had we of actualy visited that part of the world!

Without further ado, please click on the picture to start this episode's song.




There's only 12 hours to be spent in EPCOT
then Park closing comes along just to end it!
So the annual problem of Disney fanatics
Is Finding a good way to spend it!

Like maybe...

Meeting the Fab 5,










Feeding some fish:






Or Posing with their friends instead!



Discovering countries like Norway with Vikings (hey!)




Or drinking an avocado and queso!














Finding a Tiny Train


Wearing a mini skirt:








or looking for Dr. Heinz's lair (it's over here!)


Continued here

Hahaha looks like I interrupted you there in the middle of two posts.
Love the pictures of you guys with the Fab 5! Awesome time in Epcot, I love it there so much. I love those Canadian Mickey ears! Beaver, hockey, plaid, maple leaf, cowboy hat... I mean really, it's got it all!

Loving your TR. Fast paced TRs are my favorite! Never leave you hanging. You all remind me very much of my sister and her SO.

Thanks to your TR I now know much more about Phineas and Ferb than I did about 5 minutes ago

Awesome stuff though! Your princess breakfast looked awesome, and I have to admit, I was a bit weirded out by the appearance of cold fish in the buffet, but as long as you enjoyed it that's all that matters

I'm glad I'm all caught up now, I didn't realize how much I'd missed...darn wedding stuff, getting in the way of my precious DIS time
