Day 13: Visitors!

This day we started slowly with some breakfast in the apartment after which we drove to Disney Springs, Disney’s shopping area.

After we visited the Lilly Pulitzer store and Tommy Bahama we got the message the Alex and Julia had arrived at Disney Springs Marketplace. We met them in front of the World of Disney and Emily was beyond exited that they are here.

Sander and Alex brought the luggage to our car at the Lime parking garage while Julia, Emily and I walked towards the Starbucks to get some coffee. A little later Alex and Sander joined us.

When we finished our drinks we decided to go to the Boardwalk to find a nice place to have lunch. We took the bus Hollywood Studios and the Skyliner towards Epcot only to find out that the last leg of the route towards Epcot was down at the moment so we took the Skyliner back to Hollywood Studios to try to take one of the Friendship boats to the Boardwalk but those lines we so long we and there were no busses back to Disney Springs we booked a Minnie Van back to Disney Springs.

Here we had lunch at the Edison. The food was good en we enjoyed the Happy-Hour cocktails. Because they forgot to bring my food at the same time as the other food we got some dessert for free.

After lunch we visited the World of Disney Store and walked back to the car to go the apartment.

For the rest of the day we were relaxing and did a little shopping at the Target.

Day 12: Magic Kingdom and rain!

Today the weather was going to be better (to be honest it could not get any worse then the last 2 days). We woke up early because we were going to visit the Magic Kingdom.

After a quick breakfast in our apartment we stepped in the car and drove towards the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC) and parked our car at the Simba parking lot (row 114). We took the tram to the security/bag check and boarded the golden Monorail towards the Magic Kingdom.

A Photopass photographer took our photo in front of the Main Street train station and left today to enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.

First we visited our little fairy friend in Pixie Hollow. Tinkerbell was very chatty and put a lot of pixie dust in Emily’s autograph book. Unfortunately no Photopass Photographer here, just the infamous photo-box.

We followed our way through Main Street USA into Fantasyland. We visited Rapunzel, Tiana, Cinderella and Elena at the Princess Fairytale Hall. Emily loves meeting all her favorite princesses but sometimes she was a little star struck.

Next it was time for some action. We walked on Under the Sea – Journey of the little Mermaid followed by Barnstormer Starting the Great Goofini. Emily and I had front row seats. She screamed with excitement and before we knew it the ride was over. Quickly we stepped in line for Dumbo the Flying Elephant followed by Mad Tea Party tea cups.

Now it was time for our 2nd Fastpass of the day, meeting Ariel in her Grotto.

To stay in the character meeting mood We waiting in line the meet with the Fairy Godmother but right before it was our turn she had to take a break and instead we met with Cinderella’s stepsisters, Drizella and Anastasia.

We saw that the wait for Mickey’s Philarmagic was only 10 minutes so we went for it. Emily really enjoyed the 3D effects.

Our last Fastpass was for Enchanted Tales with Belle. After we visited Maurice’s workshop Emily and some other kids practiced a little surprise play for Belle. Emily got to play Mrs. Potts. After the little rehearsal the got the meet Belle and perform their play. She was so proud. She even got a little gift at the end and off course lots of pictures.

We wanted to do some more ride because the wait times were not that bad but after we had lunch at Cosmic Rays Starlight Café at started to rain and it wasn’t going to stop for the next couple of hours so we made our was back to the exit of the park to the Monorail. But the express monorail broke down, but luckily we could still take the resort monorail to the TTC. A little soaked we arrived back at the car.

Before we went home we visited a close by Walmart. At the apartment we cleaned up a bit and did some laundry.

We ended the day at Yeoman’s Cask & Lion Bar with some shareables and drinks.
