SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2014
Most mornings I pop out of bed, since I’m a morning person, but on vacation I occasionally do it before the sun even makes an appearance. Today, the sun is out, but hasn’t had time to burn off the fog, so my first savannah pictures are not as good as I’d like them to be. But I’m not complaining, I have a balcony, a savannah, a cup of coffee, and I’m on vacation!
We get ready for the day and take a cab over to the Polynesian Resort for breakfast at the Kona Café. Just to refresh your memory, our last visit here the chef made me incredible Gluten Free Tonga Toast out of rolls. Amazing!!!
This trip we are told Disney will no longer let them modify foods like that. I’m beyond heartbroken. I settle for Allergy Mickey Waffles with some pineapple-macadamia nut butter. These aren’t even the best waffles I’ve had – the centers are a little runny.
Ethan orders the Big Kahuna and indicates he also wants the gluten free substitute, but the chef misunderstands and brings him GF pancakes instead of Mickey Waffles. These are the thinnest pancakes I’ve ever seen in my life!
By far, the most disappointing breakfast we’ve had – we swear off Kona Café for awhile.
We monorail over to the Magic Kingdom (having to wait for the monorail to begin operation – we are really running early today!) and make Rope Drop!
I don’t know what has gotten into us, but we start today doing a series of Character Meets…
Ethan is hooked on themed exit signs…
It is close to 10:40 by the time we actually get on a ride!
According to Ethan’s list, the next item was the Fantasyland Steam Train. We must have ridden a full loop then, because after that, we’re still in Fantasyland! For what, you ask? MORE CHARACTERS, OF COURSE!
Still in Fantasyland, we run into the Main Street Harmonics. I love this kind of entertainment, but I think they’re lost!
Next up was Enchanted Tales with Belle, and guess who got to be picked as a Suit of Armour again!
It’s time for an early lunch at Be Our Guest – being creatures of habit we order the same meal as November: turkey for Ethan, roast beef for me!
Still good, but not quite as good as last time…
One last character meet in Fantasyland and it’s time to change location!
