Disney 2015 ~ Magic Kingdom ~ Day 2

(Wed, Sep 16, 2015)

After going hard the first 3 days in the parks we started today slower.  We slept in a bit, took our time getting ready and then stopped at the store at our resort.  Hannah had brought some pins for Pin Trading and was excited for her first trade with a Cast Member!IMG_8653

Another new thing Hannah and I wanted to try this trip was Tonga Toast at Capt. Cooks at the Polynesian Resort.  It is a large slice of sour dough bread, stuffed with bananas, dipped in French Toast batter, deep friend and then dusted with cinnamon and sugar!  As with the majority of our counter service meals, we shared this and still were not able to finish it.IMG_8656 

We both decided it was good but not something we would necessarily rush back to try again. 

Before leaving the Polynesian we did a little shopping in their stores as Hannah had some spending money that she had saved up for our trip.  The second purchase she chose was this adorable Baby Pluto.  She is a stuffy lovin’ gal and I never mind her purchasing them as I know they will be cherished and receive much love.  IMG_8665

We were on our way to the Magic Kingdom for the day so we hopped onto the monorail and rode the 2 stops to get us there.  (Even at 6yo Hannah uses a stroller at Disney when she wants a break.  Since she’s older I rented a City Mini GT from Orlando Stroller Rentals and it was worth every penny!  We go hard at Disney and having a good stroller is a must for us as most nights she was asleep before we get back to our room.)IMG_8654

We rode a Disney classic…IMG_8666


plus  Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  Hannah was cute as she tried to look ‘cool’ at the beginning but the swoops, curves and hills soon had her giggles going!

Disney has begun to add a number of interactive queues that gives kids (and adults) things to do while they wait like this one at the Winnie the Pooh ride. 

As we waiting Hannah made friends with this sweet little girl from Scotland.IMG_8669

We ended our day with another new dining opportunity and I’ll say it was the one I was most looking forward to and it didn’t disappoint:  Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue!  When we arrived we were excited to be seated close to the stage.IMG_8671

The entertainment was great

and the food was delicious.IMG_8676

Strawberry Shortcake anyone?IMG_8686

Hannah belly laughed her way through the evening and about half way through the show she declared that this needs to become a new tradition!  I agree baby…I agree!IMG_8696

The next time you visit Walt Disney World, Hannah and I highly recommend you attend the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue!!


  1. We are so with you on the stroller! I'm always amazed when people choose not to do Disney with a stroller for anyone under the age of 8. If you don't, you are going to be carrying them, having a tired cranky child, renting a big bulky plastic one in park, or even worse having to waste part of your park day going back to nap! It doesn't matter that they don't use a stroller at home anymore. Disney is way harder on a kid than a stroll through the mall! OK, end rant. Ha!

    The Musical Review looks fun! I think you'd like Dollywood here in TN! It's a theme park all based around "old timey stuff" as Marin calls it. The section of Disney that contains Big Thunder Mountain is basically how the whole park is themed.

    I love the baby Pluto! I'm loving that you still have lots left to post about your trip! It's holding me over till we leave on ours! I was wondering if you were still going early to the parks by this point in your trip! 3 to 4 days is about all we can handle, period! Ha! But you managed 10! Ha! I bet pacing yourself is key! LOL!

  2. I am loving reading all your posts about Disney!! We are Disney posting kindred spirits! LOL! There are a few things you did on this trip that we haven't done before and they are definitely going on the Disney bucket list! You girls always have the best fun together!
