(Wednesday, September 24, 2014)
Wednesday morning we woke up excited to spend a day sharing some time with my brother and his family as well as time for Hannah and I alone. A perfect combination!
We waited to eat breakfast in the Magic Kingdom this day and enjoyed a waffle with Nutella, strawberries and bananas. Mmm! What a beautiful location to start our day!
By this time in the trip Hannah and I were working the FP+ system well! We’d use our 3 FPs early in the day and then see what we could do to book more. This time and a couple of times later we scored extra FP+ reservations for ‘Seven Dwarfs Mine Train’! We also learned to check for a FP+ reservation for a rides on our way to them. It wasn’t unusual to score a FP for a less popular attraction on our way there only to arrive and find a 20 or 30 min line that we were able to avoid. Bonus!
One of the treats for Mommy with having other families to share time in the parks was I was able to ride some of the rides that I’m unable to when it’s just Hannah and I. Here Dave and I rode ‘Big Thunder Mountain Railroad’ as Hannah wasn’t in the mood that day. It was such fun to spend this time with my brother!
While we played Trish took the kids to visit the Fairy Godmother.
I think Kallen is in love!
Last year when we went to Disney Sharon (aka Nana) was also there with her nephew Daniel and grandchildren Tor and Joshua. We were sorry they weren’t there this year. Daniel had visiting Disney for the very first time and fallen in love and since he couldn’t be with us we took him in ‘Flat Daniel’ form!
At this time, one of the girls’ most anticipated times of our trip had arrived – their visit with Anna and Elsa!!!
Next up for Hannah and I was a delicious, fun dinner at 1900 Park Fare. More on that in our next post.
