Return of the Rescuer Day 20 22.7.19 Last of the Snacks

Return of the Rescuer Day 20 22.7.19 Last of the Snacks

Index is here

Again, it was an absolute struggle to get on the go this morning. Dh was up and ready and chomping at the bit but ds and I had different ideas and didnt get up till about 9am.

By the time we got ready and finished off all the packing it was about 10:30 and we took the bags across and headed to the food court.

With qs credits left we thought a proper breakfast would be a good idea and despite not feeling overly hungry we all had our own breakfast plate.

Berry pancakes for ds and I. Delicious as always.

French toast for Dh with an extra side of sausages for a snack credit.


I also bought a quick service breakfast for the family behind as us, always a nice thing to do with qs credits left.

Once we were done we headed out for the bus to Magic Kingdom. We were not as lucky as usual here and waited just under 30 minutes for the bus to arrive. Wed been cutting it fine for our buzz lightyear fastpass anyway but this meant wed definitely miss it.

Bag check and entrance were pretty quiet at this time of the day and we headed into main street stopping at the little bench with Walt and Minnie and on main street for photopass pictures.


We also walked around to the bit at plaza gardens where they were doing the zoom in and out photo as the one wed had taken the other day never appeared. Although it did later.




Straight up to 7d. The lines were mental and even the fastpass line was queued back outside the building. This was definitely a busy day at MK. I had a quick look on touring plans and dumbo was 25minutes, small world 30 minutes...

We decided to head to Tomorrowland for a wee cool down on the carousel of progress, stopping in the way for a strawberry fruit bar and an ice cream float, got to get using up these credits!

Orange fanta ice cream float

Strawberry fruit bar



Carousel of progress was as full as Ive ever seen it and we enjoyed the wee sing along and the cool down.

Time for our next fastpass, big thunder mountain. Needed to stop for a snack first though, another reds revenge which was very refreshing as the temperature today was a bit unbearable. Real feel 104 again I think.



Big thunder mountain was crazy, the whole area was mobbed and the standby line was going up to 2hours. It was like the craziness of the splash fastpass line at Easter. We were in a zig zag line before even tapping our bands, the kids in front of me were crying with the heat.


It took us about 20 minutes to get on, I dont know how those people in the standby line managed, we saw a few people leaving the line.


By the time we left though the fastpass line was way out on the bridge.


So that was it for Magic Kingdom, time to leave. Dh nipped into the shop to get some chip and dale trail mix while ds and I went to Starbucks. Got to use up all those credits...

It was mental in Starbucks. Really quick to order but we waited well over 15minutes for our drinks. (no photos)

Our bad luck continued with a 20 minute wait for the bus.

Safely back at French quarter we used up the last of our credits with a meat lovers flat bread, beignets, a praline and another pack of chip and dale mix. With that all our credits were gone!

The magic express appeared right on time and also stopped to pick people up at Riverside. 20 minutes later and we were still there as one big family seemed to have extra people who were not booked on that bus and there was a lot of debate if everyone could fit or not.

Checked in fine with BA, wed been a bit worried about the weight of the cases especially since we had masses of ghiradellis but they were all just under.

No upgrade for us this time, in hindsight I should have asked as there was loads of space in premium economy when we got on.

The flight was delayed until 8.33, which was not a big deal for us at all as we had a while in Gatwick.

Still stuffed from Disney we had a wee snack of Auntie Annes pretzel dogs and just chilled out. Well I spent my time looking at Orlando flights for another potential trip and Dh sat shaking his head at me.


Maybe we chilled out a little too much as before we knew it there was a last call for boarding and we were among the last few people to get on the plane.

All Fooded out we just had a quick snack at the airport / some Auntie Annes pretzel dogs.


BA food.

Choice of chicken or pasta

We all had the chicken which was ok. A sort of Thai curry flavour.

The pudding was nice.


Breakfast was dire. They are still offering the soft cheese croissant which I declined - Dh didnt heed my advice, opened it and quickly decided against it. It smells weird and looks mouldy! I ate the cereal bar. I didnt even take a picture.

At Gatwick we went to Nandos and had some breakfast rolls. Sausage for me and sausage and egg for ds and Dh.


They did the job and kept us going for our internal flight which went without a hitch!

Seems like you came home at the right time. It seems to have gotten so busy.

Plane food is such a let down after all the amazing food 😂 but those nandos sandwiches look nice. I didn't even know nandos did breakfast. I assume it's just airport locations.

A brilliant report I'm hoping to start on the April one in the next few weeks when I've submitted a couple of assignments 🤞

Thank you for such a fab report. Lookin forward to the next one xx

It looks super hot in the photos. Shame you missed out on a last round of Buzz. I don't think I've seen that zoom in and out photo before! What a great idea.

A shame the report is over, but lovely that you have your trip for February already booked up so something to look forward to.

I wonder if it was just the Monday at MK, they say its not a good day as lots of Americans start their trip on a Monday at MK.

We were shocked to discover Nandos breakfasts a couple of years ago.

Thanks for reading.

I thought those lines were down to Easter but maybe not. Crazy wasn't it!

Have a great holiday, you must be really excited.

You can get one of the zoom photos next year

It's nice to know there is another trip or 2 in the making isn't it.

Thanks for reading along and commenting.

I think on your home day you are just done knowing youve got a long trip ahead of you, I never feel as patient on my last day.

Ill not be expecting anymore free upgrades for years to come 😂
