Day 5: Evening in MK

Soundtrack: Magic Kingdom Entrance Area Loop

My last update finished with us leaving Animal Kingdom after a light supper at Yak and Yeti and whirlwind tour of major attractions because the park was so empty. Our day was far from done though, we had another reservation set up for later that night.

We hopped on a bus from AK to TTC.


Then monorailed it to our final destination.


Into the Magic Kingdom.


Jess walking down Main Street USA,









I love those balloons but I have no idea what I would do with one if I ever was to purchase one.

Apparently we where still feeling a little hungry because our first stop was to the Main St Confectionary for candy.



We got some maple fudge but I must say that I wasn't really impressed, next time I will stick to my rice krispy mickey.

We then continued towards the castle,




and took a left turn towards Liberty Square.








Into Ye Olde christmas shoppe


Where we bought our wedding ornament for our xmas tree.


We then continued on towards our favorite ride in all the parks I think.
Splash Mountain Soundtrack




We rode Splash at least once then took some pictures as we walked towards our fav 3D show.










Continued in Part 2!

Day 5: An Evening with Mickey

Soundtrack: Philharmagic

I was blown away by Philharmagic the first time I saw it. It was on one of our last Disney days and we had seen and been bored with the other 3D shows so we didn't expect much from this one but BOY was I wrong. This was a delightful use of all the dimensions. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the smell that accompanies the BOG segment. and I also ADORE Donald Duck so all in all I love this show.









After the show it was just about time for the FIREWORKS DESSERT PARTY!









Blurry Buffet picture..sorry




Great Seats, Jess booked as soon as it became available. I don't know if that's why we got good seats but it can't hurt to be quick I guess.


My plate with my favorite Rice Krispy.


Jess's plate


Our view










the show about to start.










MK had EMH that night so we went back to Splash.



Then headed back to our room because we had a busy day planned for tomorrow.



We where originally planning on having breakfast at Hollywood and Vine the next morning but we decided to sleep in a little instead.

Thanks for reading! Next update will be about our last full park day where we sleep in and visit 3 parks in one day.

Day 6: Disney Park Relay

Welcome Foolish Mortals to the last day of our Disney Honeymoon. We knew we needed to pack as much fun into this day as possible because we wouldn't be coming back for a while (or so we thought at the time).

Soundtrack: Something a bit different to set the pace

We started out our intense park hopping day by....SLEEPING IN! I know this sounds counter intuitive but we wanted to last until MK EMH so we needed the extra sleep. We made the decision to sacrifice Toy Story Midway Mania (no way we would be able to ride if we didn't make rope drop) and get a few more hours of snooze.

I let Jess sleep in a bit longer and went to grab breakfast at the POP food court. It's incredible the different a few hours make on the lines. Usually when we walk through at 7:00ish, the food court is near empty. Not at 9:00, It probably took me 30 minutes to get there and back. Not the quick food stop I was hoping for but Jess appreciated the extra sleep. No food pics though I think we had french toast sticks or something like that.

Once we where all revitalized, energized and few we went on the offensive and invated DHS.










I think DHS is very good looking when the sun is out (but looks pretty drab with covered skies).



















We enjoyed one of the streetmosphere characters interacting with a young boy, the director was so excited to meet the famous young actor. It was funny.



Then we made our way towards my favorite ride.




The line was too long for RnRc but we got a slush lemonade at the kiosk in front.




Took the time to rock out

Then went to see a DHS classic.

So that's the start of our Final Disney Hopping day. I'll be back soon with more which may include the famous Mac n Cheese hot dog, Indiana Jones starring ...ME!, a flash flood and much much more.

DH offers to buy me a balloon every trip but I always decline because I wouldn't know what to do with it after about 10 minutes!
Fireworks dessert party! Ohh I loved that! You guys had great seats for sure!
Ahhh final day. But it sounds like you're going to make it a good one!

That's the downside about the balloons. Guess I'm gonna have to have kids so I can tie it on their stroller... :P

I'mmmm Back, Hopefully I can finish off this trip report before the end of he week. This is my march break so I should have plenty of time to work on it.

Soundtrack: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bTpp8PQSog

Last time I left you guys we had just watched Belle fall in love with the Beast who transformed himself into a beautiful prince (Spoiler alert?). We where starving so this was the perfect time for another first!

We walked over to Fairfax fair on Sunset blvd.


For a great view of the Tower...and....


The Mac n cheese hot dog.


This is a hot dog, covered with mac and cheese, bacon and truffle oil.
I had read about it on a few other trip reports and blogs so I had been keeping an eye out for it. I must admit that my expectations had been pretty high unfortunately they weren't met. As I remember, the bread was a bit dry and the tastes didn't blend together as much as I'd like. I think I would still prefer Mac n Cheese with little cut hot dogs like my mom used to make.

Then made our way back down Sunset blvd towards the other end of the park.

See beautiful skies as we walk up to Indiana Jones. Last year the show had to be cut short because of a major rain storm earlier in the day. So we didn't see the final scene with the plane. I was looking forward to that this time around.


I had read in another TR that the key to getting picked to participate is to stand up and lift your hand very enthusiastically. Which is how I ended up HERE.

I'm the one with the green shirt.

We where whisked off to wardrobe (and to sign our life away) and voila!

I am a star.

Watch my ninja moves


Unfortunately, as the show went on we could see this very dark and scary cloud rolling in as the wind picked up. We got up to the truck scene and...THEY CUT THE SHOW SHORT AGAIN. so we are 2-0. Jess has NEVER seen how that show ends, EVER! Some day we might risk it again (maybe we should stop going during hurricane season)

Afterwards, we ran (with our ponchos) to TOT to ride a few more times before leaving Hollywood for the final time this trip.


Houray for Hollywood!

The storm didn't last long but it was enough to flood sunset boulevard while we where running to TOT. It also damaged a few trees near the bus stations.


There was a huge line up for the EPCOT bus so we decided to hop onto the bus to the TTC. We where in no real hurry but didn't want to stand in the rain longer then needed.



Happy in the rain.


Our RIDE!

During the short trip to EPCOT we realized that half a hot dog wasn't going to keep us full for very long and Jess also wanted to try a first for her. She is somewhat fussy when it comes to food and loves her comfort food so when she heard about how good the mac n cheese was in WDW she had been trying to get us to go to a table restaurant that has it. Unfortunately, I couldn't make that happen (although I did get us maple creme brulée, a dessert party and a view of wishes during supper from the cali! (Go me!)) The point being that she still needed her mac n cheese fix. I connected to the Touring plan app, fired off a question into the world wide web and was quickly told that we could get mac n cheese at Four Seasons in the Land pavilion. We set sail in that direction and voila!



Mac n Cheese kids meal for Jess. I must admit it was very good and very cheesy. Definitely hit the spot. I think we got grapes and a yogurt as sides. Worth the pit stop. Next time I need to try the strawberry shortcake that I keep hearing about.

We knocked off a few other must dos around EPCOT.







Not bad but wouldn't have it again.


We love these ladies.


One too many drinks? dancing in the streets


Great show in Japan.


Pit stop in France


Rock Concert in Canada


More dancing in England


Told Jess I should wear this to her games.

That's it for now. I'll be back soon with a Dining Review. The last Table Service Restaurant of that trip....I'll give you guys a hint, it is in Epcot and our waitress came from the city for which the restaurant is named.

Thanks for reading!
