Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's Off To Disney We Go - Day 13 - Chill Morning and Magic Kingdom

Day 13 ĖChill Morning and Magic Kingdom

This morning started with me waking at 8.20am, a nice lie in! Noah was up playing on his tablet. Chris made breakfast this morning which was a nice change.



A quick change and we all went in the pool for a few hours, showers, dressed and packed lunches prepped we left the villa at 12.20pm and headed to Magic Kingdom. The drive didnít take long at all and traffic was fairly quiet too thankfully. We couldnít get parked in disabled which we kind of expected given how late we were, but we were directed to the preferred parking instead




We decided to take the monorail over to Magic Kingdom as we hadnít managed to do it yet on this trip (mainly because we kept forgetting masks and they were required on transport at this point). Noah found a huge tag on his mask and proceeded to carry it round all day and stroke it. That boy loves his tags, we have such a cute video of him but Iím not sure how to pop it on here.





No queues at the turnstiles and into the Magic Kingdom, we refilled the popcorn bucket and got some photos.



We then headed down mainstreet and into Adventure Land, but not before stopping at the egg roll cart!







Snack

Back in 2018 we tried the cheeseburger spring rolls with our snack credits but I didnít rate them at all. We decided to give them a try again, this time mixing it up with 1 cheeseburger spring roll and a pastrami spring roll too! We both loved the cheeseburger spring roll, I was gutted we didnít get a portion each Chris preferred the pastrami one, but I wasnít too keen on that one. They are expensive for what they are but definitely a nice treat!







This was $9.50




Next we rode our first DAS Pass of Pirates of the Caribbean and I secured a return time for Aladdinís Magic Carpets, also booking a snack from Sunshine Seasons.



We enjoyed Pirates of The Caribbean but itís always a once done for us, we just donít get the hype for it It was very hot this afternoon so Noah had a run through the Tiki water sprayers for a while as we waited for our Aladdin return time.









Again Aladdin is the same, nice to do it but only once per trip, not worth a wait really.

Snack



Next we headed to Sunshine Seasons for our pre order. It was very busy here!



We got the I Lava You float and pot stickers, Chris enjoyed the pot stickers... Me not so much, but I am a fussy eater.





We all really enjoyed the float apart from Noah. We'd said we were getting ice cream but because it wasn't vanilla he had a meltdown, he shut up himself off in his pushchair and we just kept trying to encourage him to come out. He eventually did after 10 minutes when we were in The Haunted Mansion which was our next DAS ride.





Thankfully we had the disability tag on his pushchair as there's no way we'd have gotten him out of it to ride! Inside he came round himself and we rode the ride, which stopped 3 times, this was going to be a regular occurrence today.

Whilst waiting for The Haunted Mansion I secured a DAS pass for Big Thunder Mountain after The Haunted Mansion, so we headed there.







The queue here was huge! Noah was refusing to leave the pushchair even with the bribe of a ride. I didnít realise but the DAS entrance on this ride is actually the exit, the CM directed us. There was another family ahead of us waiting. I explained to Noah that he would have to leave the pushchair to ride the ride here as we werenít allowed to take it in as he can transfer, thankfully he got out but he wouldnít speak to us. He stood to the side of us. When waiting inside for the ride he started trying to hurt Thomas and Chris. I eventually managed to distract and calm him and we all rode. We enjoyed this but the kids said they much preferred Space Mountain to this now and it just wasnít as fast! Whilst we were in the queue for BTM I managed to secure a return time for Space Mountain for 4.40pm.











We had a slow walk out of Frontierland and caught part of the parade, we knew we would be really early for the DAS pass so went to Pinocchio Village Haus for dinner and pre ordered on mobile. The slot was around a 30 minute wait.

Dinner



I pre-orded on the app, good thing I did as when we arrived we would have had to wait and pre-order was showing as an hour later!

I wanted to try the Pinocchio Village Haus 1971 Meal which consists of All-Meat Flatbread, Garlic Knots, Fountain Beverage and a 50th Anniversary themed Cake Pop, sadly it didnít come with garlic knots, came with breadsticks instead which I was a little disappointed. I also ordered a chicken Caesar salad. It was at this point we realised Chris has left the kids lunches in the fridge, this was the first time heíd made the kids lunches, he popped them in the fridge when heíd made them in the morning but forget to add them to the lunch bag luckily we had a stack of snacks (crackers, biscuits, crisps etc in the bag to keep Noah set for a while) Caitlin and Thomas dug into the flatbread, breadsticks and chicken. We all really enjoyed it.

This was $33.01







Next we headed down to Space Mountain, the park was very busy but not as busy as last week and the times reflected this. We all enjoyed Space Mountain but Thomas and I were a little disappointed as some lights were on so we could see a lot of the track which kind of ruined it a bit. I'd got a DAS return time for The Little Mermaid as weíd checked into Space Mountain. We had a slow walk up with Thomas losing his sunglasses on the way luckily a family seen him dropped them and ran back and gave them to us.









I love The Little Mermaid and I also enjoy the ride, yes itís not thrilling but itís just so nostalgic isnít it Ö kidís would have rather not rode it Another ride that broke down, this one was 3 times





The kids had asked to go on the Tomorrowland Speedway so we got a return time for that which was only around 15 minutes. We all enjoyed this although Chris complained his and Noah's car was slow... I blame the driver Thomas and Noah also got their Tomorrowland Speedway licences









Noah had asked to ride Winnie The Pooh so I'd secured a time to return for 40 minutes time.



When we got there the ride was down so we were told we could use the DAS Pass on another ride, off we went to Mickeys Philarmagic, I absolutely love this show, in fact we all did (apart from Caitlin), such a great show and underrated! If you haven't done it, do it. Itís a must for us every trip







Next up we headed to the Tangled bathrooms as we needed a comfort break, but I also was hoping to get the Tangled photos but sadly they weren't there At the time they still hadnít restarted the picture opportunity yet, Chris tried to take some photos of me but they didnít come out great









Anyway the kids had requested to ride Space Mountain again so I secured a time and we had a leisurely walk down.







The lights were still on It was now 7pm and everything was quietening down as people were securing their seats for the fireworks (we'll see them on Monday for my birthday)



Whilst in the queue I secured a return time for Buzz Space Ranger Spin, again this ride also stopped but the plus side was I managed to get over 400k in points from just sitting and shooting!





Next we did Monsters Inc Laugh Floor where Caitlin was picked out Chris was called out for 'illegal recording' (videoing) and called a criminal then we were all shown on camera again this another one we love and its different every time! We have the video footage on our Youtube video which should be out a week 27th June 2022!







By the time we left it was 7.59pm and just as we got to the hub the fireworks started! We got to the train station on main street and watched some of the fireworks then headed out before all the crowds. We got to see some fireworks on the boat too which Noah loved











I dropped Chris and the boys off at the villa and Caitlin and I popped to Publix as we needed some more milk, bacon and juice. I was secretly looking for the Cheesecake Factory bread but I couldnít find it We cheekily called at Chick Fil A on the way back and shared a burger and fries. Noah was fast asleep when we got back around 9.30pm.

Poor Noah didn't seem like he was enjoying things to start with. By the end of the day though you all seemed to be having fun. I'm really looking forward to Monsters Inc, even though the jokes are predictable we all laugh and find it funny. You all managed quite a long day in MK in the end, lots of rides and even the fireworks at the end of the day. You must have been shattered by the time you got back to the villa, especially having done some shopping too.

Lovely photos. And sounds like you got loads of rides under your belt. I loved the cheeseburger spring rolls, wasn't so keen on the other ones.

He did really struggle bless him, it was a very hot day too so I don't think that helped. As much as it's nice having a chilled morning in the pool I think it tired him out too. It was a long day but strangely didn't feel too long xx

We certainly did and we didn't feel like we were rushing either which we enjoyed so much more. I'm so pleased we tried the the cheeseburger spring rolls again, they were so tasty! X

The way you describe it, it seems like quite a relaxed afternoon at MK, despite getting lots of rides done. Nice to relax by the pool in the morning too.
