On Monday, our last full day in Walt Disney World, we got up and headed to the Magic Kingdom, my favorite! We again had beautiful weather, and I was excited to see some of the new areas of the hub were finished. I love the way it turned out!
Of course, we had to properly caffeinate before we started the day.
We had a fastpass for Big Thunder Mountain and Haunted Mansion, and we also rode the people mover and Pirates of the Caribbean.
We had lunch reservations at Liberty Tree Tavern, and we hit up the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train before heading out of the park.
Oh, after lunch I also had a dole whip float. However, I was very disappointed to find out you can no longer get the vanilla soft serve with the pineapple juice, only pineapple ice cream. They said the vanilla soft serve was “not popular enough”, but based on everyone’s sad messages on my instagram photo, I do not believe this is true at all. The good news is you can apparently still get the vanilla ice cream at the Polynesian.
We got back to the resort mid afternoon so Jen could do some work, and I decided to go for an easy 3 mile run. I love running in new places, it keeps me occupied to have new surroundings to look at.
It had definitely warmed up and I got hot quickly, and considered hitting the pool but decided to just hang out in the shade outside instead.
That night we headed to EPCOT to have dinner at San Angel Inn. It was May 4th, so we were being Cinco de Mayo festive a day early.
The next morning we had one last breakfast in the food court and one last Mickey waffle before Magical Express came and picked us up to go back to the airport.
I had a great time and am so sad it’s already over, we have been talking about this trip forever! It was just the little break I needed in my favorite place.
QOTD: Have you ever been on a girls only or boys only trip?

So sad about the Dole Whips…I always get the vanilla soft serve! And yes…I LOVE going to Disney on a girls trip! So fun! And don’t you just LOVE that Starbucks is in the parks now??? Makes me so happy!!! Especially since (in my opinion) the coffee in Disney is horrible!
Sounds like a great last day! Glad y’all had fun! 🙂
How was it navigating through The World with all the construction going on? My family goes every January, but last time we went it was pretty frustrating with all the walls up – especially at Downtown Disney. We’ve decided to skip next year and wait for all the work to be completed, but I’m already having withdrawals. Did you notice this and did it have much of an impact on your trip?
hhmm.. I feel like there is constantly construction all over Disney and while not my favorite, I don’t think it’s ever really taken away fro my trip. Still so many other great things to offer! I def. wouldn’t skip a trip because of it!
