Sorry for the meltdown, but Reid sure turns around quick with the smiles. I'm glad you enjoyed your breakfast at Ohana (never been...perhaps if they offered different options for the family style we would consider it).

I think my favorite photos this round are Reid and Pluto.

I have always wanted to try the breakfast at Ohana. I even had it scheduled once, but had to cancel for illness. Boo!

Can't see your pics now, but I will definitely stop back later today because I bet they are great.

Too bad Reid was not lving the lei, but at least he settled down for character and picture time.

Ah yes the dreaded Disney meltdown....you never know when it is going to rear it's head! Been there.....(ok not specifically at an 'Ohana Breakfast) but you get my drift!

It's their darn cuteness that saves the day....and Reid sure has that! Glad you were able to enjoy the breakfast and make it to MK for rope drop! Perfect!

Yum! Ohana sounds delish! I really want to try it! The character interaction looked great! Sorry Reid wasn't in the best mood. At least he cheered up! I can't wait to hear about MK!

Sorry about Reid's weird mood. I'm glad he enjoyed the characters! It looks like such a fun spot for breakfast!

I'm glad you had a good experience at the Ohana breakfast well except for Reid- but doesn't that happy sometimes even with the best of them... I think Ohana is one of the best character breakfasts on site...

Your date night at Citricos sounds awesome... You sold me... I'm putting them on the ADR list for next summer...

I have to get to Universal... It really sounds like a good time... but the characters not having handlers? I can't even imagine that...

Ohana is the best! One of our all time favorites as well. Stinks that it started with a meltdown but glad things turned around. I love it when we go at the beginning of the trip so we can cover the stroller in leis and find it faster in stroller parking!

The Ohana breakfast looks great. Its a shame Reid wasn't at his best behavior, but I totally understand how that works. It looks like he managed to have a good time and enjoy it anyway though.

So far behind...so very, very far behind!! First, so glad your Thanksgiving weekend turned out great! I have heard so many good things about the Great Wolf Lodges! We never tried staying there but it seems to get really good reviews. That room was adorable too!!

I adored your pictures of IoA! I have not been but we are thinking of trying it the next time we go to Orlando...whenever that may be! The Dr. Seuss area is so colorful and just looks so happy!

I am glad to hear the positive review on Citricos. I had contemplated going there in October but decided to forego a "fancy" dinner. And the price for the Neverland Club was great!

Finally...Ohana breakfast is one of our favorite character meals (Tusker House and CP are the other two). The food is usually good and I love that juice!!!! Sorry about the meltdown...yuck!!!!

Maybe I can stay caught up now that some craziness has passed!!

I'm a few updates behind-

We have very similar taste in rides, I could happily ride the Hulk all day long, but you couldn't pay me to get on that free fall ride ever again! I made the mistake of letting DH talk me into it the one time we went to IoA, and I screamed "LET ME OFF" from the moment I was strapped in, until the ride was over.

I'm so glad that date night went so well! I agree that it is a really good deal, especially considering that it includes a meal. It is cheaper than the going hourly rate of a babysitter in the DC area, and I never thought I'd see the day when anything in Disney was cheaper than real life!

I'm glad that things ended up OK with your breakfast. I agree that family style is so much easier than buffets, especially with little kids. I'll have to keep it in mind for the future. I don't love the scrambled eggs, but I'd just have a good excuse to eat more bacon.

Sorry Reid was being such a pistol. I hope that wasn't the theme of the day.
Yeah, I'm really glad I decided to try out that character meal. I think it's one of the better ones we've gone to.

Well....let's just say it was the theme of the morning with him.

Hubs always quotes a line from A Christmas story "My mother hasnít had a hot meal in 15 years"~that's me
Love that movie & love that line! It's so true! I can't even imagine for you. I only have one and hardly every get a hot meal.

It really is a nice meal! I say it's definitely worth a try.

He better be thankful he's cute! He'd stay in a lot more trouble if he weren't.

I'm glad we gave 'Ohana a try. I think it was a good fit for our family and I could actually see us returning there.

Thanks....he really had so much fun playing around with Pluto. It was hard for me to be mad at him at that point.

I say it's definitely worth trying out at least once. I loved that it wasn't a buffet!

Yeah, I was glad he swung his mood in the other direction so that the entire breakfast wasn't ruined.

It was a nice meal! I would consider going back there on future trips. And I certainly don't feel that way about all character meals.

Yes, go! We truly enjoyed our meal there. I was a little worried at first since the service started out slow. But by the time we got our appetizers, it didn't even matter. It was a lovely dinner!

It's such a nightmare without handlers for the characters! Part of me was glad Reid only wanted to meet Spiderman.

Sounds like we had a very similar experience on Dr. Doom's Fearfall! I've never been so terrified in all my life.

I know, right?!? I couldn't get over how "cheap" the club was. We'll definitely be doing that again. And it was so nice to be able to have a nice date night with Ed. We both said how much we regretted never doing that during our Disney trips before we had Reid. But, when you don't have kids you tend to take things like that for granted.

I think even if you didn't want the eggs that there would be enough for a good breakfast: fruit, bacon, bread, Mickey waffles, potatoes, sausage. I would definitely give it a try. It's reasonably priced, the food is good and it's so nice to just sit down for a character meal.

Tuesday, October 2nd - Magic Kingdom Part 1


We had made it to Magic Kingdom in time for the Rope Drop show! I really love this show and insist on seeing it at least once every trip. Even Reid was excited:







And soon it was time for the show to start:











Then, we were finally on our way into the Magic Kingdom! I wanted to stick to a decent touring strategy this day, so we didnít linger too long upon entering. We quickly started making our way down Main Street towards the Castle:



We walked through the Castle and went straight to our first order of business: grab FPís for Peter Pan. Once that was done, we noticed how short the line was so we hopped in the standby and only waited about 5 minutes before taking our first flight to Neverland!

After Peter Pan, we went across to Itís a Small World, which was a walk-on.













Once we were done with our happy little cruise, we headed to the Carousel. It was also a walk-on.



The horse Reid wanted to ride was on the inside of the Carousel and I could not get any good shots of him. So, I took some shots of New Fantasyland stuff instead.

Prince Ericís castle:



Can I tell yíall how disappointed I was that this wasnít open during our trip?

The new walls:



Theyíre really lovely!

And the step-sisters were by the walls with Lady Tremaine:



After his ride on the Carousel, Reid wanted to try something new for him:



There was even a Photopass photographer there, so that was nice.





Continuation coming right up.........
