February 2014 Disney Trip Recap: Part 2

We left off part one of my recap on Saturday night after eating at Trail’s End Buffet. The next morning, I was up at 2:45 for the runDisney Princess half marathon.  I ran the race, Bobby met me at the finish, and we went back to the resort so I could shower and eat. I was feeling a little better this day, so instead of napping we all headed to Animal Kingdom.

We did a Bug’s Life, and Bobby did Everest. We happened to be walking by right before the Flights of Wonder show started. They were doing a fun pre show with some of  the birds and Bobby was a volunteer.

We watched the show after and really loved it. Those birds can do some cool things! If you have never seen it I highly recommend it.

We had lunch at my favorite, Flame Tree BBQ, and then headed back to the resort (and THEN I took a nap!) That night we had dinner at California Grill. I was so looking forward to it and was bummed that I started feeling crappy and sick. We had a great view, but I just felt bleh the whole dinner.

Mom and dad wanted to take the monorail to the Grand Floridian and walk around after dinner, but I was ready for bed so Bobby and I took a cab back to the resort. I was SO glad the next day I didn’t have to wake up early and maybe would be able to make it through the day at the Magic Kingdom!

On our last day, we went to the Magic Kingdom.

We introduced my parents to Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. I’m not sure my dad got it ha.

We may have had Dole Whips at 10:00 in the morning.

We had fastpasses for Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan, and the guys rode Big Thunder Mountain.

They crack me up.


We had fastpasses for lunch at Be Our Guest, and then we headed back to the resort for a nap, then we wandered around the Boardwalk and the boys got into trouble.

That night, we walked over to the Beach Club for dinner at Beaches ‘n Cream. My parents had never been there, so it was a fun experience. We all split burgers so we would have room for dessert.

We split burgers AND all four shared this thing. We barely finished it. I have no idea how people eat one all by themselves.

The next morning we took Magical Express back to the airport, and just like that our trip was over. There were some really fun moments, but I was also really bummed at how sick and tired I felt most of the time. It was really hard to just have fun and enjoy everything, and after all those months of planning I was bummed at the timing. Oh well, just means we have to go back again!

QOTD: Do you order dessert on vacation? Have you played Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom?

  1. Dessert on vacation is a must! That ice creams looks sooooo delicious. And dole whips are good at any time of day! :0)

  2. I will gladly have a Dole whip any time of the day. I love dessert on vacation and my mom and I split a Ghiradelli creation in November at Disneyland. We couldn’t finish it though.

  3. Dole Whips are always a good dessert choice, but I have to admit, that ice cream sundae looks amazing! Glad you enjoyed some of the vacation….being pregnant with the sickies is no fun!

  4. I want that ice cream right now! I know you’ll feel better on your next trip!

  5. So glad you felt a little better the next day and could enjoy yourself!

  6. I think we sat at that same booth at Beaches and Cream on Friday 🙂 It was our first time eating there – dessert is definitely worth the trip!

  7. I always order dessert on vacation 😀 That sundae looks amazing, Beaches & Cream is definitely in order on my next trip, I’ve never been!

  8. I absolutely love California Grill! I used to eat there all the time when I lived in Orlando.
    We stayed at the Yacht Club a few weeks back and there was a ice cream diner place off the boardwalk that had the “kitchen sink” ice cream platter. It was monstrous! We didn’t get one, but I saw a few groups attempting to put a dent in theirs. I can’t imagine the sugar rush after something that size.

    • That’s where we were eating, Beaches n cream at the beach club lol! The Kitchen sink was WAY to big and just turns into a sloppy mess, but this one was still huge, but very good!

  9. My wife and I LOVED Beaches n Cream! We did the same as you. We split a burger (the cook actually split it for us). And then split the No Way Jose for dessert. Love that place!

  10. Um, YES I order dessert on vacation. Isn’t that what it’s for? 🙂

    Love seeing the pregnancy updates, I just had a baby boy 7 weeks ago.
