Disney 2015 ~ Magic Kingdom, Day 3

(Saturday, September 19, 2015)

I have a couple more Disney posts to put up as I wanted to capture as many of our memories here as I can.  Better late than never. Smile

Saturday was another one of those days that continued to change on the fly.  This is the first trip that we’ve done as much of this and I must say it was wonderful!  Rather than being tied to a schedule we’d change as we wanted or as other moving parts led us to change. 

I will say here that the ability to change things up is one of the many, many reasons why we like MagicBands.  MagicBands (MBs) are the bracelets you see on all of us.  They are our room key, park ticket, hold our FastPass+ (FP+) reservations, credits of our dining plan and also allow me to enter the park without a purse as I have charging privileges tied to mine just by entering a 4 digit pin I set up.  Each trip we’re offered the opportunity to order new bands so Hannah and I have quite a collection of colours.  It’s fun to mix and match our bracelets with what we’re wearing for the day.  Changing our FP+ reservations was a simple as using my phone or iPad and the MyDisneyExperience (MDE) app to make the changes.  FP+ reservations are basically 3 rides/attractions each day where we get to bypass the line and go directly onto a ride.  They’re wonderful and offered to every single Disney guest free of change.

Hannah and I enjoyed a quieter start to our day on Saturday.  We started with a swim with the family.IMG_8851



Dave and Trish headed to the Magic Kingdom while Hannah and I headed over to the Art of Animation (AoA) resort to attend an animation class.  Hannah has talked about doing this for a number of months and what fun we had!  IMG_8860

My budding artist did so well!IMG_8864

Hannah with the animator.  Great job Hannah!!IMG_8871

Our final pictures.  We’ll be sure to do this again for sure!!!IMG_8873

We hadn’t had breakfast so by now we were hungry and visited the AoA food court which is one of our favourites.  We really like the design your own pasta…and it looks like the chefs enjoyed making it for us too. IMG_8876

Even Pluto was excited to munch on our lunch!IMG_8877

By this point we’d received a text from Dave and Trish that the MK was hot and packed and they were headed back to Pop.  It was an easy decision to put our bathing suits back on and head back to the pool. 

Today was Kallen’s 3rd Birthday so we celebrated with supper at Chef Mickey’s.  Unfortunately he slept through the first part of his dinnerIMG_8900

but it sure did make for some adorable pictures!  Mickey was so cute as he had us move the table so that he could pose for this picture!IMG_4445

Minnie too!IMG_8911

The girls always enjoy time with the fabulous 5!IMG_8895

The night was still young when we left the restaurant around 7:30.  (Sadly the flash on my camera had broken by this time so this will be the end of indoor pictures.  Now saving to buy a new camera since I had mine repaired a year ago and it’s broken again. I just can’t justify paying the $170 to have it repaired again. Crying face)IMG_8956

Dave, Trish and Makenna went for a ride on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train while Hannah, Kallen and I rode the Carrousel. IMG_8961

So sweet!


Happy 3rd Birthday Kallen!  It was a treat celebrating with you!!

6th Annual China Travel Group Reunion

Sunday afternoon Hannah and I, Mom and Dad had the privilege of getting together with the wonderful people we traveled to China with in 2009.  Our group gets together only once a year so it’s a special day when we do.  It’s always so neat to see how the girls have grown and to touch base with those who we share such memories with! 

L to R: Meigan, Jiana, Tessa, Hannah, Kristie and Emma.DSC_1829

And a walk through reunions past….
