It’s been well over 2 weeks since the last time I made one of these posts. I should be done soon, but who knows. I’m great at getting distracted.
First day of 2019!
We start it out by waking up early and taking the disney bus to the Magic Kingdom, then the monorail to the Polynesian resort. I think this one’s my mom’s favorite. Maybe Animal Kingdom Lodge actually.
We had reservations for breakfast at Ohana. We were seated super duper fast and the food came out quickly too. It’s served family style, I didn’t eat much because it was mostly animal products.
But nothing else matters because here you can meet LILO!
We then took the monorail back to the Magic Kingdom.
A lot of people were coming into the park again this day, so we kinda had to fight our way n (luckily the monorail has it’s own bag check so we didn’t need to go through security which had probably an hour long line.
We looked around in the stores on as we walked down the middle of Main Street U.S.A (see what I did there?). My mom was on a bit of a wild goose chase for a towel she really wanted but couldn’t find. The shop staff were so nice that they gave her the display towel which was the last one in the whole property apparently (or something like that).
We had a lot of time before needing to do anything so we leisured and took photos in front of the castle. The photographer didn’t get the whole castle for some reason though
I dubbed today my Princess Day, because we did an absurd amount of princess related activities.
Our first P.A (Princess Activity) of the day was the Tiana and Rapunzel meet and greet. This is so, so special because you get more time to actually converse with the princesses. We were behind a little girl who was fully decked out in Rapunzel merch and she was so, so excited. Her little brother was too, which surprised me because he was fully decked out in a Lightning McQueen getup. He really liked Tiana. It was really cute.
In all of my pictures with Rapunzel my eyes are closed 😦 Didn’t want to post them.
After meeting Tiana and Rapunzel, we walked over to ride The Voyage of the Little Mermaid.
After this we went on Space Ranger Spin to use one of our 3 extra fast passes. I’m terrible at shooting on this ride (and most rides in general if we’re being honest).
We were behind a lady who is apparently a pro at this and she was giving the guy she’s with pointers on how to rack up points.
We then made our way out of Tommorowland and we decided to go to the Laugh Floor because the wait was only like 10 minutes.
After that, my mom took a break.
She did that because she doesn’t do spinning and I felt a primal urge to ride The Mad Tea Party.
We then had a bit of a wait for our reservation at Cinderella’s Royal Table, so I took the opportunity to take pictures with the castle.
I put my tripod low on the ground and took these with my shutter button. People who walked by stared like “look at this lonely weirdo”.
We sat around inside the castle once our time came and then took pictures with Cinderella (another one of my favorites), there’s a few more photos until her. be patient.
OK. The big Princess Activity.
In the restaurant I had a cous cous dish, a salad, and raspberry sorbet. It was nice to have food that’s actually food that I can eat. Most people in the restaurant were having steak and stuff, so don’t think the price is astronomically high. Vegetarian and vegan stuff just tends to be cheaper than fancy meat and smelly cheese.
My mom has my photos with all the princesses here on her phone, I don’t want to rummage for them. I’ll make another post of all my pictures that didn’t get put in posts once I’m finished with Disney posts. In the restaurant you meet Snow White, Aurora, Jasmine, and Ariel. I think when I was a kid you could meet Mulan but she has her own meet and greet in EPCOT now so I guess they took her out 😦 sad because we didn’t have time for the Mulan meet and greet ad I love her. (Daily reminder that I’d pay good money to meet Li Shang. TAKE MY IDEA, DISNEY!!!!!)
After this we used another one of our fast passes and went on Space Mountain! Well, actually, I went on Space Mountain, my mom used the chicken exit.
After this we kinda just noodled around. We had a pre-planned fast pass for The Haunted Mansion though, so of course we rode it. This is one of my favorite rides, but it’s also really hard to photograph.
We noodled around some more. My mom started to feel a little sick around this point in the day.
But she’s a trooper so she went on Big Thunder Mountain with me. She also loves the ride so it’s not much of a decision.
We then made our way out of the park via fantasyland. We had one last fast pass and used it on Peter Pan’s Flight.
This was our last ride of the day.
We had reservations at Artist Pointe at Wilderness Lodge and we decided to take the boat over there.
Waiting for the boat with us was a family with 2 little kids and the kids were very into running. Their poor mom was trying her best to wrangle them but it’s like they wouldn’t listen to her, because the moment she’d tell them to stop running and touching people they’d get back up and do the same thing. I hope they were just super hyper in that moment because that would get on anyone’s nerves to deal with 24/7.
Here you meet Snow White, Dopey, and I think Grumpy(?).
This is another case where I don’t want to rifle through my mom’s phone.
Snow White remembered us! We were really excited but also felt kinda like huge dorks because we’re doing all these P.A’s so quickly that the princesses do double takes.
Toward the end of the meal, you the Evil Queen comes out and you can’t line up to meet her. She summons you.
This was probably my favorite of our days. We did a lot of stuff but it felt leisurely whereas on some days we wouldn’t do much but it was very fast paced.
This day was relaxing.
Well, thank you for reading! I hope you liked this entry!
Have a magical day!!!
