Disney - day 2

Greetings from the happiest place on earth!

The Princess Marathon was this morning. We saw the stragglers as the bus went by followed quickly by the clean-up crews.

We tried to sleep in today but I can't sleep past 7 anymore. We had breakfast in the room and got ourselves ready and out to the bus by 9 to go to the Magic Kingdom. We immediately got on the train once we entered the park and did Thunder Mountain Railroad, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Haunted Mansion in 30 minutes. We also did the Hall of Presidents, which we had never done before. Off to It's a Small World and Snow White before stopping at Pinocchio's place for lunch. Then it was a walk to Space Mountain (which was redone - the queue is different with games you can play along the way and it is a lot darker; I think the cars are new too) and a ride on the TTA (my favorite). Next stop was The Laugh Floor, which I love. That interactive show is hilarious. We had a great spot for the parade. It featured some of the volunteers at the park and then I think the parade is kinda new. It had new music and some things I didn't remember. After the parade, we shopped down Main Street and and then got on the boat to the Grand Floridian for dinner.

The Grand Floridian is gorgeous! I took a lot of pictures as we walked the grounds and explored the lobby area. Very pretty place and so many kids there! We went to Narcoossaa's for dinner. OMG, it was outstanding. Adam had some fish we never hear of, which he said was good. I got a fillet with yummy mashed potatoes, spinach, and green beans. For dessert, Adam got Coconut and Key Lime creme brulle (2 separate dishes) and I got a super dark chocolate mousse cake thingy. Yum-yum. We shared deserts and then tried to get to EPCOT for the Jose Feliciano show at 7:45, but we didn't get back on the bus from the MK until around that time. Instead we came back to the room for the Academy Awards.

Tomorrow is EPCOT and the Flower and Garden Festival and dinner in the Contemporary at the California Grill. TTFN.
