I never noticed the ceiling in Once Upon a Toy! How cute!
I was very pleased with the prompt and friendly service the scooter company provided.

I never noticed it either and just had to get a photo !!

I didnot know they had costumes for the american girl doll's

that is something to think about

Ann and family
They do have costumes for the American Girl dolls. Well, they are for the My Disney Girl doll which is WDW's version of the American Girl doll. They have Cinderella, Aurora, Jasmine, Minnie Mouse, Rapunzel and Tiana. They may have more, but those are the ones that come to mind. I have been trying to get DD to get one for her doll, because I just love them, but she wasn't interested until she saw the Rapunzel outfit.

Hi, I just started reading your trip report, and I love it so far.

I hope your surgery went well, and I hope you have a speedy recovery.

We are trying to plan our first trip to Disney World for December 2013. My mom is going with us, and she will need a scooter due to knee problems, so I'm looking forward to seeing how the trip went for you on a scooter.

Looking forward to the next update.

Thanks.

I am so glad you are reading and I hope my TR will help you plan your trip. I really enjoyed the scooter. Even though the reason why I had to rent it has been very unpleasant, the scooter really added an element of fun to our trip. It really was a life saver. Feel free to ask any questions. I would love to help.

Today has been my first day post-op and it has been a very rough day. I hope tomorrow will be better. Thanks for the well wishes !!!

Love some WPE! My standby is the turkey cobb salad, but have really enjoyed the chicken strips too. I gave up beef, so I'll just have to drool over your pictures of the meatloaf. Man, I love meatloaf. <sigh> It just isn't the same with turkey.

Your poor foot! So swollen!! I hope you're doing okay today.

We just love that meatloaf. Sooo yummy.

It swelled up huge every day. If I didn't ice it once or twice a day, then I was going to be in some pain and discomfort.

I hope you have a great trip !! Looking forward to hearing about it when you get back.

The chicken strips are very good.

Today has been a very hard day. I haven't been able to get the pain under control at all. We will see what tomorrow brings ......

Day 3 – Part 1

We got up early – about 7:30 AM and headed down to Roaring Forks for breakfast.

DH ordered a Bounty Platter

Bounty Platter - with scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, pancakes and a biscuit $8.29

And this is what he got: scrambled eggs, hash browns and a piece of bacon. I thought I had gotten a photo, but I can’t find it now.

Anyway, they were clearly confused about what a Bounty Platter was. I asked him if he wanted me to fly up there on my broomstick and handle it, but he said to not bother, that this was plenty and the kids wouldn’t eat all theirs, so he would finish their food up. If we had paid OOP for this, however, I would have gone up there and straightened that out. Just sayin’.

DS ordered Pancakes

Pancakes - served with bacon $5.19

I think he might have gotten them to switch the bacon out for hash browns because this is what he ate.



These were good pancakes and the hash browns were good, too. I like them crunchier and we added salt and pepper to them, but they were pretty good.

DD got her some Mickey waffles.





They made these while we waited, so they were very fresh and yummy. DD gobbled them right up.

I had

Bacon, Egg and Cheese Croissant Sandwich $5.99



It came with hash browns and it was very good and filling. And I had it again a couple more times throughout the week. Very good breakfast.

After that, we headed down to the dock.



We were going to catch the boat to Magic Kingdom









The sky looked ominous



Now I am not usually afraid of rain. I had packed our ponchos. But I wasn’t sure how the scooter would hold up in the rain, so I checked my phone for radar





Um yeah ….. not looking favorable. We discussed it with the kids and we all decided to head back inside and wait it out.

Oh...the Mickey Waffles look delicious!! That is one of our favorites!

Those clouds look like they they could soak you right through in about two seconds! But the WL is a great place to hang out when you have to!

BTW - love your DH's shirt! National Champs - Go Cocks!!

That stinks that your Bounty Platter was under-carbohydrated! The rest of the food looks really good though!

I didn't realize WL had a boat to the Contemporary too - I only thought they went to the MK!

They cooked the waffles while we waited, too. So they were very fresh and yummy.

It rained pretty hard for several hours, so turning back was the right plan.

Yes !! Goooo Gamecocks !! Watching that football game against Missouri right now. Looking good for another SC win !!

I would have gone up and gotten what I asked for myself, but DH didn't want to make a big deal over it and we all had plenty to eat.

We never got the chance to take the boat to the Contemporary, but that is good info for sure. You learn something new on the DIS every day, huh ??

The rain lasted a few hours, and it rained pretty hard, so we were happy with our decision to wait.

LOL at my picture. I am Scooter Mom ... fear me !!!

Day 3 – Part 2

A lady with a baby gave us her arcade card that she said she wouldn’t use, so the we headed to the arcade so the kids could play games.









Of course the points on that card didn’t last long and we purchased $5 more which was 275 points. Games were about 40 points a game.



After that, we headed back to the room.









We chilled for several hours and about 12:30 PM, it looked like the rain was clearing out, so we gathered everyone up and headed out to the bus. It was still sprinkling, so we didn’t want to wait down at the dock. Well we should have taken the boat because the MK bus took FOREVER. At least 35 minutes. Everyone was peeved by it. But finally one came and they got us loaded and we headed over to Magic Kingdom



By this time, the rain had stopped. So we were good to go.











We had planned to eat at Columbia Harbor House for lunch, but as we got close to the castle, DD said she smelled hot dogs. I asked her if that is what she wanted to eat and she said yes. Everyone else was agreeable, so we ate at Casey's for lunch. We grabbed a seat outside since the rain had cooled things off considerably and the temps were perfect.



We had an excellent view





DD, DS and I just got a plain hot dog and added some ketchup



DH loaded his up at the condiment bar.



We all got fries. These were very good hot dogs and here was DD’s assessment



Thumbs up.

The piano player was out and we enjoyed listening to him while we ate



DH and I got Cracker Jacks for dessert.



The kids got a chocolate brownie that is in one of the photos above. We were too full for dessert and I put everything in my bag for later.
