We spent three days in the Magic Kingdom during this trip, and after the third day, we made our choices!
Ride: Since our favorite ride, Splash Mountain, was closed this trip, we (adults) chose The Haunted Mansion. The ride is so much fun, and always has imaginative trompe l’oeil in every direction! And the striped costumes the maid staff wears is liTerally the best in Disney! I may need a maid’s costume fer HallOweenzzZ!
Kids Rides Pick! : The kids couldn’t decide on just one. So they each chose individually and together…Big Thunder Mountain (our 8yr old), Dumbo (our 6yr old), and The People Mover (both!).
Restaurant: Quick Service: Be Our Guest
We dined here for lunch, quick service with seating inside. Though the wait was only 30 minutes, it was in the hot sun so that sorta stunk…but it was all redeemed inside as it was a real pleasant surprise. The atmosphere was pretty. We ate in the main dining room, at the far end near the windows of the animated falling snow. The staff was fun, and their method of serving the food through our magicband was genius…and the food we got ended up being pretty darn good. I am a sucker for quinoa! The two cupcakes, 1 strawberry cheesecake and 1 chocolate, we shared were pretty amazin’ too. The whole presentation of the place, food and service was a delight, and we were totally enchanted.
Snack: TIE! Funnel cake at Sleepy Hollow Inn! Great crispy funnel cake, with a great view of the castle! AND MICKEY BARS!
Non Alcoholic Drink: Starbucks non-fat latte! Of course!
Kids Rides Pick! : Nesquik Choc Milk!
Alcoholic Drink For some reason, we didn’t drink any in the MK!
Character Meet: Merida AND Tinkerbell!
After a quick wait, we got to meet our oldest daughter’s fav character. She was funny, sweet and quick with her one liners. On our next visit, we got to meet with Tinkerbell and Rosetta, who is our youngest’s fav! So sweet.
Place to Chill Out the brick wall across from the tea cups, in front of Pooh’s greet n meet.
Unfortunately, the one and only ride I cannot ride is the tea cups, which is a major downer, but hanging out there is nice! Super sunny, shady if you need it and lots o’people watching… Cause if there is any other fun spectacle at Disney…it is the wide range of people who walk by you every second! Verrrry interesting. 😉
