We left off after Thursday, our first day in Disney. Friday we were headed to the Magic Kingdom for the day since we had an early dinner at Chef Mickey’s that night with Jen and her family. It was a nice sunny day but it was freezing cold!
We arrived mid morning, and headed to Big Thunder Mountain which was out first fastpass. Aaanndd…it was down for mechanical issues. Great. So we rode haunted mansion instead. Then we rode the peoplemover before heading back over to big thunder. The ride was back up but the fastpass line was SO LONG, so we said forget it and decided to go back later.
We had a fastpass for the new seven dwarves mine train ride, and we went over to do it..and it was down too! We were not having good luck. We ate lunch at Cosmic Ray’s, and finally got to ride both rides that had been down earlier. I loved mine train, but it was way too short.
Something else we got to do that I had been looking forward to was finally seeing the Festival of Fantasy parade.
It was so cute, I really enjoyed it! We got to ride the mine train again, and Bobby got a funnel cake for a snack.
It was close to dinner time, so we took the monorail over to the Contemporary to meet up with Jen and her family. I finally got to meet her little Hadley!
We had a fun time catching up and eating. They had to head out before we were done since it was bedtime for the kids, so we stayed and got some character pictures.
As we were leaving, a got a text form Karen asking if we were still there. They had reservations and were just walking up. So we met up with them and kept them company while they waited for their table. We eventually left, but we would be spending all day with them Saturday so we had more time to catch up!
We headed back to the resort and crashed, as another fun day in Disney World was complete.
QOTD: Do you go to character meals at Disney? Have you ever gotten stuck on a broken down ride?
