Day 2 - Magic Kingdom

Hey all!

Thanks for following along and the positive feedback so far!

Today was MK day (part 1 - we are back again next week for DHs birthday!)

Taking full advantage of the jet lag situation I had booked us an 8.15 reservation at Be Our Guest, we hopped on the bus at about 7ish (having been awake since 4.30) and headed to MK. We arrived about 7.25/30 along with all the other hoards of breakfasters, but it was a pretty smooth entry to the park & we got some fab photo pass pics in front of liberty station and Cinderellas castle without crowds of people.

I had pre-ordered our breakfasts on the mydisneyexperience website - you can do this a month in advance, this made for a pretty smooth check in at BoG and allowed us to get on fairly swiftly and get a table in the ballroom. The cast member did check that we didnt want to make any changes to our pre-order. Breakfast and lunch at BoG are QS credits. So for 4 meal credits we had

Kids pancakes, served with yoghurt, fruit and the pink stuff is some kind of berry foam.


Kids cereals (it was rice crispies - there was no choice on this) with fruit


DH and I both had feast a la gaston - bacon, sausage, potato, scrambled egg & fruit


The were also some pastries included too


Was it worth it?! - well I think if Id have paid out of pocket (would have been nearly $100) Id have been sorely disappointed... its a lot of money for not a great deal of stuff, but for the experience of eating in the Beasts castle & getting early entry to the park meaning some fab family photos without the crowds - Im pleased we went.

Having a big breakfast kind of threw off meal/eating schedules for the day!

Next on the food hit list were a massive Mickey cookie and a bag of blue raspberry candy floss from the big top shop near the dumbo elephants/barnstormer x 2 snack credits





you can see that biscuit is bigger than Jimbos face! Both of those snacks were all day family efforts.

The kids then shared a foot long hotdog from Caseys corner with fries and a bottle of water. Although they just have it plain (one will have ketchup) they both really enjoyed it and said it was the juiciest hotdog theyd ever eaten x 1 meal credit



DH and I werent hugely hungry yet so I had an Orange Cream Float - Fanta served with a vanilla soft serve & orange sorbet mix. It was pretty refreshing, Eve wasnt so keen, it is a bit tart.





When we were finally hungry DH and I decided to also have a Caseys, both of us opting for the foot long with Mac n cheese and bacon with fries and a drink - I mobile ordered this - it was ready in less than 10mins and I skipped a huge queue! These were bloomin lovely, my hot dog itch is scratched!



Later on in the day Jimbo wanted popcorn - he didnt like it. Too salty



And Eve had a cookie sundae from next door to Friars Nook... it took 3 of us to finish it!



We were staring to flag again at this point (lasted until 5pm today) so headed back to resort, the kids have had a bowl of cereal before bed and Im still full from the hotdog!

Total used today -

7 meal credits
5 snack credits
My smart watch is telling lies today and only saying Ive done 11000 steps but Jimbos kiddy garmin hit 21000 steps and DH was at 15500 so I reckon I probably fell somewhere in between!

Tomorrow weve given ourselves a down day following advice from Dibbers, we may hit Blizzard beach for the morning, Jimbo wants to play crazy golf so Eve and I may explore Disney springs, we are being quite fluid about tomorrows plans so Ive no idea where our food travels will take us!

Catch you all tomorrow!

Re: room request

We are in a preferred room (was the only ones available when I booked) so are in Barbados (its the island next to OPR) its handy being closer to the main area as thats where the big pool is, but to be fair even the 2 islands over the other side of the lake arent that far a walk away - these 2 islands (I cant think of their names) are the ones that will have the skyliner overhead.

Im really enjoying doing the report! Having the dining plan has meant that the food has been a big part of the build up for me as its new - when weve visited Disney before we generally just bought a pack lunch!

My memory these days is pretty terrible (I blame the kids) so by picture taking and documenting Ive got a journal to help me remember when Im home and dreaming of Disney again!

To be fair the kids are really getting into it too, they wont let daddy eat anything until a picture has been taken! Its also giving me something to do when the kids are asleep of an evening - id only usually be wasting time on Facebook anyway.

Another good day. I agree about breakfast at BOG - great value on the dining plan, but not so great if paying oop. Do you have lunch booked at all? That's one of our favourites.
Looking forward to seeing where you end up on your down day. Wolfgang Puck Express, Blaze, D-Luxe and Polite Pig are all great QS places at Disney Springs if you end up there

We've enjoyed BOG for lunch a few times too and have it booked again for June!

Be interested to see if OP chooses to go to Polite Pig, D Luxe and Blaze as these will be new options for us since our last trip

We love Blaze! I love the fact that you can create your own pizzas and I just throw every vegetable on offer at it for mine

I'm not a burger eater, but the rest of the family enjoyed the burgers from there.

Polite Pig opened just after we left last time, so didn't get to try it. However, our daughter is really sensitive to smoked food as it just turns her stomach. Even walking past Flame Tree BBQ in AK makes her feel ill, so if we want to try PP, we may have to pop in on our own this time.

Not long for you now!
