(Saturday, September 19, 2015)
I have a couple more Disney posts to put up as I wanted to capture as many of our memories here as I can. Better late than never.
Saturday was another one of those days that continued to change on the fly. This is the first trip that we’ve done as much of this and I must say it was wonderful! Rather than being tied to a schedule we’d change as we wanted or as other moving parts led us to change.
I will say here that the ability to change things up is one of the many, many reasons why we like MagicBands. MagicBands (MBs) are the bracelets you see on all of us. They are our room key, park ticket, hold our FastPass+ (FP+) reservations, credits of our dining plan and also allow me to enter the park without a purse as I have charging privileges tied to mine just by entering a 4 digit pin I set up. Each trip we’re offered the opportunity to order new bands so Hannah and I have quite a collection of colours. It’s fun to mix and match our bracelets with what we’re wearing for the day. Changing our FP+ reservations was a simple as using my phone or iPad and the MyDisneyExperience (MDE) app to make the changes. FP+ reservations are basically 3 rides/attractions each day where we get to bypass the line and go directly onto a ride. They’re wonderful and offered to every single Disney guest free of change.
Dave and Trish headed to the Magic Kingdom while Hannah and I headed over to the Art of Animation (AoA) resort to attend an animation class. Hannah has talked about doing this for a number of months and what fun we had!
We hadn’t had breakfast so by now we were hungry and visited the AoA food court which is one of our favourites. We really like the design your own pasta…and it looks like the chefs enjoyed making it for us too.
By this point we’d received a text from Dave and Trish that the MK was hot and packed and they were headed back to Pop. It was an easy decision to put our bathing suits back on and head back to the pool.
Today was Kallen’s 3rd Birthday so we celebrated with supper at Chef Mickey’s. Unfortunately he slept through the first part of his dinner
The night was still young when we left the restaurant around 7:30. (Sadly the flash on my camera had broken by this time so this will be the end of indoor pictures. Now saving to buy a new camera since I had mine repaired a year ago and it’s broken again. I just can’t justify paying the $170 to have it repaired again. )
Dave, Trish and Makenna went for a ride on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train while Hannah, Kallen and I rode the Carrousel.
Happy 3rd Birthday Kallen! It was a treat celebrating with you!!
