The 50th, 50th & 50th Disney trip - April/May 2022, Day 8 - Disney Springs & Magic Kingdom

The dining report for today is here.

The plan for today was MK in the afternoon/evening. I had set an alarm to book 7DMT but woke just before it. I booked it for 4.10pm with the plan to try and stack rides for later in the day but the problem with Genie plus is you canít choose a time. I ended up booking Peter Pan even though we wouldnít be bothered about riding that. It would have been great if we were in the park as the times are all early.
We went over to the food court and got breakfast. Marie and I got the waffle and dad the American breakfast. Mum just wanted toast and we had bought bread a couple of days before so took a couple of slices across to toast. We didnít eat in as the food court was pretty busy. I only have a picture of one of the waffle breakfasts.


After breakfast Marie and I decided to head to Disney Springs for a browse. I bought a sweatshirt Iíd seen in the resort shop who didnít have my size. We also bought a mug for the neighbour keeping an eye on the house. For the first time there wasn't a queue outside the Lego store so we popped in.

We didn't buy anything. The change rate is so bad there's no point .

We wanted a drink so went to the Daily Poutine as it was close. We decided to split a Canadian.

This wasnít as good as either of us remembered. Maybe because it was in a tray not a bowl so the gravy had made the chips soggy.
While we were eating Dad texted to ask if we wanted them to come and meet us for lunch. We just said yes since weíd only had a few chips. They arrived after about half an hour and we headed to Chicken Guy. No one was really hungry so 3 of us split a 5 tenders meal and got extra drinks and Mum got a chocolate milkshake. The chicken here is really nice and I was disappointed we didn't get back here this trip. Sauces were chipotle ranch and honey mustard.





We browsed in a few more shops. I bought a lipstick in Sephora and a present for my niece. I got a free gift for signing up to their loyalty club. Apparently you get a birthday reward too so hopefully get that next year.
Couple of DS pictures.



We headed back to the resort and got ready to go to MK. I had moved our Liberty Tree Tavern reservation and then cancelled it because there was no way Mum would eat a big meal and to be honest none of us felt like we would have managed it. Mum was still feeling rough so decided not to come but while we were waiting at the bus stop she appeared saying she felt better. We got the bus since it was MK. One arrived after a few minutes but POFQ is the farthest away stop so we had a bit of a hike .
We walked up Main Street through the shops and as we came out the parade was just starting. We found ourselves in a shaded area back a bit from the main path and no one standing there. We weren't in the way of the shop door and couldn't believe we had managed by pure accident to get a shaded spot where we werenít in anyones way without having to wait hours . We stayed and watched it.












We had a LL for Buzz and Iíd booked Big Thunder Mountain with stacking but when I went to change the time (by cancelling and rebooking) I couldnít make another one. I just left it until weíd rode Buzz then made one for a couple of hours later. After we rode Buzz we finally managed to get on the People Mover then went to Fantasyland.






Tron is definitely coming on but at this point it seemed like the landscaping was the main thing to be done. Probably a lot further on now.

We went to Gastonís for a Le Fous brew. This also wasnít as good as I remembered. We got the Donald dome cake to split but Mum and Dad didnít want any so just me and Marie. It was lemon and blueberry and was lovely and light.




Mum waited in Gastons while we rode 7DMT. This was the only time we rode as we didn't want to pay for ILL again.



After this we headed to Big Thunder Mountain then it was time for dinner. We decided on Columbia Harbour House and mobile ordered. I got salmon and rice. Marie the trio of shrimp, chicken and fish, mum the clam chowder and dad the shrimp skewer. This was nice but the rice was a bit plain and maybe I should have got fries. I always find this a good shout for nice food and the ability to get a table!





We left after dinner and there was a bus after just a few minutes wait so it wasn't too bad.

My notes stop here and I have no idea what we did for the rest of the evening .

A relaxed stroll around DS. We've not been to Chicken Guy. Did you enjoy the chicken there more, less, the same as Homecomin? I'm assuming the prices are very different as Chicken Guy is QS.

A shame you didn't make it to LTT in the evening, I can't wait to try that put and I don't even care that it will be boiling hot and we won't really fancy the thanksgiving style meal! We've favoured Garden Grill in the past and loved it there, but I decided we had to actually try LTT.

The construction for Tron looks good, I can't wait to see what it looks like when we go this summer. Surely they are aiming for an Autumn opening?

Chicken Guy is nicer than the chicken at Homecominí in my opinion but it probably helps that itís chicken strips and not on the bone. I think the coating is nicer. The downside is thereís not much indoor seating. And yes, prices are better!

We love LTT and it was Dads favourite the last time they came with us but it just wouldnít have been worth it that day. Unfortunately we didnít have anywhere to squeeze it in. I think sometimes itís nicer when doing a later park day to just go with the flow for dinner anyway, rather than have to be somewhere at a certain time.

I read somewhere they expect Tron to be done later this year.
