Disney was amazing – perfect time of year, awesome weather, and a 2 1/2 year old that was sooo excited about pretty much everything. It was such a great time with family and Owen just loved being with his cousins. He LOVED meeting the characters and wanted to see Mickey everyday. (We went to the Town Hall Theater anytime we were in the Magic Kingdom)
Some of our favorite places to eat:
Chef Mickeys for breakfast (Although The Wave at The Contemporary also has an awesome breakfast buffet)
Via Napoli at Epcot – the BEST Italian Restaurant
Dole Whip at Aloha Isle in Adventureland is an awesome treat. Gaston’s Tavern also has LeFou’s Brew which is frozen apple juice and marshmallow! So Yummy!
We tried out the Be Our Guest restaurant since it just opened – so cool on the inside and loved the steak!
Of course – Ohana. This my brother’s all time favorite place at Disney. We definitely ate way too much.
We’ve also been to the Coral Reef restaurant which had awesome food, Cinderella’s Round Table (definitely a must!) Hoop – Dee – Doo Musical Revue (a favorite!!)and T-Rex. (like the Rainforest Cafe except Meteor Showers every 20 minutes)
I would recommend downloading the WDW Waits app and the Disney Mobile Magic apps. I think the one we used was called My Disney experience. WDW Waits let you know the current wait times for each ride. Mobile Magic is awesome because it tells you which characters are in which park/where/and what times. There is also a schedule of events/parades for each park.
Oh – their super cute chevron sweatshirts and Owen’s chevron Mickey shirt were from ALM Designs.
Owen rode his first roller coaster – LOVED IT!
We saw soooo many animals on our Safari at Animal Kingdom.
Our first day was the last day the Disney Junior Live on Stage would be open for a while. We knew Owen would love it so this was the first thing we did when we arrived at Disney. We were first in line for the show and they took us by ourselves to the door (which looks like the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse doors. They told us we were the “first family” for the day and Owen got to say the magic words (Meeska Mooska, Mickey Mouse) to open the clubhouse doors. They even brought him a little certificate – so cool!
Owen asked every character to do the hot dog dance. I think we took 500 videos of this.
Okay, I could keep rambling but it was definitely a great time. Owen still asks me if we can take the monorail instead of the car.
