So just as Bambi and I headed to Space Mountain, Madison & Evan went back to Kidani Village with Grandma & Grandpa in their car to hit the pool. We FastPassed our way onto the ride, left the Magic Kingdom on Disney transportation, got to our room and found them....not there yet. Their trip out to the parking lot, driving over to AKL and parking took longer than our trip to Space and a bus ride. Granted, they parked basically on the complete opposite side of the resort from where our room is and had a 10 minute hike to include. But it just goes to show you - having a car on property does not always mean you can get around faster. But enough blither blathering - back to the action. While we were getting changed, Madison found another towel animal hiding in the bathroom. Then it was on to the pool area. Too bad I forgot my shampoo. Water Fight! After a hot afternoon in the parks, then an exhausting time swimming, what's a girl to do? Relax of course! But man cannot survive on swimming alone. Come to think of it, man can't survive at all on swimming. Swimming takes energy, and energy comes from food. And we needed some food! My biggest complaint about Kidani Village is that it does not have a quick service restaurant. Our options are Mara, over at Jambo House or something off of the resort. (They do have an onsite restaurant, Sanaa, but we weren't about to take take two hungry kids to a nice (read: expensive) sit down restaurant. And since we wanted to do some shopping anyway, off to Downtown Disney we went. The Lego Store had just reopened with all new Lego displays outside. And this time - they're Disney themed! (If you ask me, Doc's glasses didn't come out quite right. He looks like he should be jamming with ZZ Top!) Dean and I continued on to Earl of Sandwich, while the women and kids stopped at Pollo Comparo for some chicken strips. Yes, Evan ordered a cup of beans for his side. Yes, he ate them all. After I finished my Hawaiian BBQ sandwich, I turned to see some ominous looking clouds. Oh oh, I though, this is exactly what it looked like when Jafar enslaved the Genie and made him place Agrabah's Palace up on that cliff. Luckily, none of that happened to us. Probably because there are no cliffs near Downtown Disney. Despite those clouds, the weather was very nice, as you can see here With some food in their bellies, the kids seemed to get a little spring back in their step. Not only that, but Evan got a little shake back in his booty. Video Evidence Here. (With bonus daddy booty shake at the end!) And what Disney Trip Report would be complete without some Silly Hat Pictures I waited until twilight to take this picture because I though it gave it would really pop with the lit up Lego sign in the background. And when we passed it the first time I had already stopped to take a few other pictures and we were on our way to Earl of Sandwich and I was hungry. Either way you want to look at it... Evan and I played with some Legos. You can tell its Evan because the bricks spell E-V-A-N. Madison teaching Aurora how to properly curtsies. Looks like the statue is picking up a few pointers. Finally, we headed back to Kidini Village, where the lanterns where just calling out for their picture to be taken. I obliged. And so ends Day 1 of our Surprise Disney Trip. Was it awesome? Oh yeah. Was it over? Not yet: there are 3 more days of surprise to go. Up Next: Some very exciting stuff that I can't think of a good teaser for!
