Day two was Mother’s Day, but don’t picture any spa treatments or leisurely brunches. Nope, we hit the ground running early. We started out with breakfast at the Crystal Palace inside the Magic Kingdom. Our reservations were for before the park opened so we had to get permission to enter early.
Breakfast was with Pooh and friends. I was still stuffed from the day before but I managed to eat a couple of the special french toast which happened to taste like funnel cake. And if you know me you know I LOVE funnel cake.
In addition to Pooh, Regan was happy to meet Eeyore, Piglet, and Tigger.
After breakfast we rode more rides. I have to tell you that it was a magnificent day at the park. We hardly waited in line for anything. I guess most moms aren’t really trying to go to an amusement park on their special day.
Regan loved the band walking through the park and was more than happy to join in on the fun.
We headed over to see her first Disney love, Tinkerbell. I was happy she could finally meet a Disney character that would actually talk to her. I don’t know how these kids don’t make the connection that Mickey doesn’t utter a word!
After meeting the fairies it was, once again, naptime. When Regan fussed about taking a nap I reminded her that she got to meet Mickey after nap the day before and if she took a nap now she’d get to meet Tiana. Needless to say she went immediately to sleep. My mom and I took the opportunity to sit a spell while she napped. That 90 minutes did our feet some good!
Tiana was lovely! I was just as thrilled as Regan to meet her. I wasn’t initially jazzed about meeting her Prince, but I have to say he was quite charming in his heavy velvet suit.
We headed back to the hotel to change for dinner, but not before picking up a souvenir.
Dinner that night was at Ohana, which was at our resort. It’s Polynesian food served family style. We had a great time and the food was pretty good. (BT-dubs, I plan on reviewing all the restaurants on Yelp if you want the deets. Look for me there under my government name.)
After dinner we headed to our beach to watch the electrical water parade. It was kinda lame, but the kids liked it.
By the time the fireworks started we were tucked tightly in bed.
