Man I have waited way too long to post this....
Let's see if I can remember what we did.
We woke up and headed straight for Epcot to go straight to the Character Spot to meet Mickey and Minnie.
We knew this would be the highlight of the trip for baby brother.
I know your super jealous of my heart monitor and the do I or do I not look pregnant.
So over this phase!!
Brother was Smitten with Pluto.
Since we have beagles we don't make barking noises but we howl.
Sounded kinda like an owl hooting but this was the noise he made while seeing pluto.
Not quite sure at first.
Then he was a howling away!
For those of you that don't remember our horror upon last years trip; well, big sister has a horrific fear of large characters.
Like, nightmares, tremors, it was horrible taking her and discovering this inside Magic Kingdom!!
This year she got brave!! The first day was a slow start and warm up but apparently all it took was getting Minnie to sign a doll!!
After we said our good byes to Mickey, Minnie and Pluto we hopped on the monorail and RAN over to Magic Kingdom to sneak in lunch at the new Be Our Guest restaurant.
For those of you that do not know Be Our Guest is one of the restaurants in the new Fantasyland.
Being honest, most disney food is pretty run of the mill, honestly not that great.
This meal was very flavorful and quite satisifying!!
Here is what we saw upon walking in the restaurant.
There was not a single detail un-noticed!
Here is what the menu looks like!
After a walk down the "short hall of armored men,"
you then round the corner and are given a red rose. The rose contains a GPS tracker in it for the server to bring you your food.
You place your order at the following stations and then select a room to sit in.
Since we are big scaredy cats, ie our 4 yr old, we sat in the rose garden room.
It is quite impressive that each room can accomodate hundreds of people.
If I added correctly, at any given time they can seat just under 1000 people!
The walls in this room were covered in scenes from the movie.
Our food was delivered in once of the fancy serving carts like seen in the movie.
Everything was hot, tasty, and probably the best meal I have ever eaten at disney!
We were smart this day...
We fast passed Mickey's Philanthrarmagic, and Winnie the Pooh.
In the meantime we rode the carousel!
Then we fast passed Ariel's new ride! I think it was called Under the Sea.
And walked right up and rode the Spinning Tea Cups!!
Back with iphone pics in just a bit!
