Today I am recapping Day 5 of our Disney World Vacation! This was our final day in the parks, and it was a Magic Kingdom Day!
We woke up and headed to the Magic Kingdom for breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table! For those who don't know, this is inside the castle!
INSIDE THE CASTLE!!!
It doesn't get much more exciting than that for little girls with big dreams of being princesses!
As soon as we got to Cinderella's Royal Table, we went inside and were greeted by Cinderella of course!
Cinderella chatting with Paisley about how she lost her slippers!
After the meet and greet with Cinderella, you get to walk up the castle staircase into the dining room! Lacie ran up those stairs and was so excited when she got to the top!
Princess Lacie has arrived!
I loved this breakfast! The food was delicious and the kids allergy menu was great! Each girl got a wand and a wishing star at the table. During various parts of the meal, everyone would be asked to wave their wands, make wishes on their stars, and say "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!" They really enjoyed this part of breakfast!
While we were eating, other princesses would come to our table for pictures! We got to meet Aurora, Snow White, Ariel, and Jasmine! The girls were really excited that Princess Jasmine was at breakfast because we hadn't met her yet! Paisley loved meeting Snow White!
After breakfast, it was time for a lot of RIDES! We got right onto the carousel because it's outside as soon as you leave the back of the castle! Paisley was napping in the stroller at this point, so she didn't get to do this ride.
Next up, we had fast passes for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train! This is a fairly new roller coaster that I was really excited about. When we got up there, Blakely was too short to ride. She was really good about not being able to do it. Lacie went on with Uncle Matt, Grandmom, and Grandpop!
After Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, we had a fast pass for Peter Pan's Flight! Then we hopped on It's A Small World! I love those two rides. Paisley slept on top of me during It's a Small World. I think she would have loved it if she had been awake!
After those rides, John's parents and brother headed back to the hotel to rest. We stayed in the park for more rides!
But first we got a Starbucks! How cute are the Mickey Ears on the "I" in my name?!? And the spelled Lindsay correctly...this almost never happens!
Our next ride was the Teacups! You have to ride the Teacups in Disney!
After the Teacups, we had fast passes for the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh! This was a really cute ride!
After that we all needed a snack to hold us over until dinner! The girls got Mickey Mouse shaped pretzels that were bigger than their heads! John and I got churros! I think this was the only time we used snack credits on something other than Starbucks or Dole Whips!
After snack, we headed to Dumbo which in my mind is another classic Disney ride. We couldn't leave without the girls riding Dumbo!
Right by Dumbo is a ride called the Barnstormer. It's a Goofy roller coaster that you had to be 35 inches to ride! Blakely met that height requirement so she got to ride her first ever roller coaster! She was really excited about that! She went with John and I hung with Lacie and a sleeping Paisley!
After Blakely went on the Barnstormer, John went back on with Lacie! Then we headed to Enchanted Tales with Belle! This was a long wait, but it was worth it in the end. They tell the story of how Belle and the Beast fell in love, and all of the kids get a part in the story!
At this point it was almost 5pm and we had dinner reservations at The Plaza on Main Street at 5:15. This is where things went downhill a bit. It had rained while we were inside Enchanted Tales with Belle, so the strollers were soaked. I carried Paisley and held Lacie's hand while John held Blakely's hand and we each pushed a wet stroller with our free hand. Matt was meeting us at the Plaza. Somehow we got there at 5:10. Now it became clear to me when I gave the hostess my name that they were running behind on reservations.
By 5:30 the kids were getting impatient.
By 5:45 I was annoyed and asked to speak to the manager.
When we finally got seated after 6pm I was beyond aggravated. I don't get mad easily but when I do watch out. John calls it the "Lindsay 'tude." I made these reservations 6 months ago...this is something the restaurants in Disney deal with everyday...there is no reason for this kind of wait...especially when people have hungry kids.
Needless to say they offered to comp our meal which would have made no difference because we already paid for it with the dining plan. So I got two fast passes.
Sigh. The food wasn't even that good. It was definitely my least favorite Disney Meal.
Also it was not the most allergy friendly meal which added to my frustration. Instead of sending a chef to talk to me, they sent a waitress who was trained to handle allergies. She said they sent her because the chef was on a break. But they came out with Lacie's food pretty quickly after that so I wonder who made it if their allergy chef was on a break.
They did make Lacie a cute sundae for dessert.
Every night around this time, Paisley was so overtired that she became super silly. We played a lot of Peek-A-Boo with her which was so funny!
After dinner, we decided to use one of our free fast passes for Space Mountain! John and Matt went on first while I stayed with the kids, and then Matt and I went on!
Right outside of Space Mountain was a DJ and a dance party. I swear this was Lacie's favorite part! She got out of the stroller and danced for an hour! B and Paisley were sleeping!
Finally, we walked over to Pirates of the Caribbean, and John and Matt took Lacie on that while I stayed with the two sleeping beauties! Lacie loved it and told me how scary it was!
After that, we headed to the Monorail to go back to the Polynesian! We got to see some of the Main Street Electrical Parade on the way out!
