Day 3 continued
We stopped for another PP picture after this
356361
Then we actually went on Aerosmith :hilarious:
A light for you...
356363
356364
356365
After our ride we headed over towards our next FP: Indiana Jones. We haven't seen the show in years so I figured we should see it again just in case it does get cut eventually.
I tried to get a picture of Gertie blowing smoke out of her nose - you can kind of see it
356366
356367
356368
Waiting for the show is when my Mom and I were really debating about half marathon vs. 10K after seeing everyone with their medals. As I said we still don't know what we would prefer but we did decide we think we would like to run again next year.
Apparently I did not take any photos of the show but it was good. I feel like I missed the entire end though as I was distracted by a kiddo who got sick :hungover:
At some point we ran into the Storm Troopers
356369
After this we headed over to Toy Story Land
356370
356371

I was. I thought it was a hot tub...at least that's how it was explained on a vlog I watched recently because of the timers by the post you were standing next to. Or maybe I'm confused....:banghead::banghead::banghead:
I think its both actually ! I was just saying before I edited my post I'm not sure anyone can actually afford those cabins to enjoy it :hilarious:

These 30th Anniversary banners are so cute and they are different depending on what area it is.
I got my Mom a slinky dog MB which matched the poster :joyfull:

356990
356991
We popped into the new Incredibles area briefly
356986
356987
356993
Then we wandered around the Chinese Theatre
356992
356996
356997
Still wandering

This clothesline is so cute - it's in the Muppets gift shop :)
357002
Anyway we finally made our way over to Mama Melrose's for dinner
357005
We had a super short wait before we were seated. I feel like they are usually running behind but not today!
We were seated at a nice table for 4 so we could spread out
357008
357009
Our lights obsession actually started at Mama Melrose's...
357010
I wish I could remember our waitress' name but she was fantastic! We chatted about how they took the strip steak off the menu. She said that happened because they got a new chef and they tried to tell him how many people love it but he wanted to try new steaks. She laughed and said they lasted all of 2 weeks without the strip steak :hilarious: And, she said it shall always remain on the menu.
Of course that is what I ordered, but first bread

Strip steak
357015
Spaghetti and meatballs for my Mom
357016
Then we decided to eat some dessert
My Mom had a cheesecake and I had the chocolate and cherry tort
357018
357017
As usual everything was fantastic. P.S. this is the first of 3 Italian dinners we eat in a row :joyfull:
My Mom made me take this photo on the way out but everyone was looking at us so we were laughing and it is blurry :)
357020
We had yet to see Toy Story Land in the dark (just dusk) so we headed over there to see it
357022
It is so pretty at night!
357023
357024
357025
We intended on taking more photos but noticed Slinky Dog was posted as only a 30 minute wait ....what?!?! Naturally we hopped in line!

The attention to detail is incredible - I love how you see where Andy started peeling off stickers
357027
357028
357029
We were in line with this fellow Mom and daughter duo (of a younger sort) and the daughter could not contain her excitement when we said it was our first time riding at night. She said it was her favorite time to ride it!
Our wait was only 25 minutes!
357032
357033
357038
Oh my gosh and she was right! It was somehow even better at night and we had an absolute blast. For me it was one of those moments where I could not wipe the smile off my face! Disney is so magical sometimes - I wish I could bottle it up and take it home or share it with people who don't understand why I go to Disney so often !
357034
357035
Anyway, we somehow missed the memo that we got in line for Slinky Dog right around park closing time (hence the short wait). There was still Fantasmic going on and the fireworks were starting soon, though, so we escaped before the crowds.
357037
Something in me could not tolerate a bus ride home (or the walk to it...sore legs from running) especially when a bunch of people were about to exit the park so we took a Minnie Van home!
357036
Then it was off to bed!

Next up: Epcot!

Your Mama Melrose pictures are making me hungry! That steak is my favorite Disney meal. I haven't seen Toy Story Land at night yet. Hopefully I will get to do that during a future trip. It looks so pretty.

I'm still raging that my visit to Mama Melrose fell in the two week period that they decided to remove the strip steak!!!:mad::mad:

Loving the trip report. We were there that weekend also. Too bad I didn't run into you. It was so hot for February but we still had a terrific time.

I'm all for chefs trying to inject new items to freshen up a menu, but if something is that popular, don't mess with it.
Right? That was the waitress' point for sure she said it was a mess when it was gone

Aw really ? Bummer we did not run into each other ! It was super warm!

Day 4 February 25, 2019
We got up around 7 am, got ready and headed to breakfast at Roaring Fork. We were not in the mood for anything prepared food wise so we went with a chocolate croissant and a hazelnut chocolate glaze something something donut.
357445
357446
We ate a banana each as well to balance it out :hilarious:
357447
I am actually not sure why I even picked out the donut as I typically do not like them - but it was good!
Anyway, we finished up and headed to the bus stop so we could head to Epcot after this
357448
357449
357450
We stopped for a PP picture right away
357451
357452
Then we headed to Starbucks :)
It was SO empty inside - I feel like even right around the time the park opens it's still usually packed
357453
I actually started to get a migraine right around this time so we just sat outside in the sun for a bit so I could get some caffeine in me.

Next up: more Epcot

357458
They were feeding the manatees
357459
357460
357461
357462
Surprisingly my Mom suggested we ride Living with the Land next (which is her least favorite ride) :hilarious:
357464
This banana pin holder is so cute!

Day 3 February 24, 2019
We slept in until 7 am which after two days in a row of getting up somewhere around 3 am was glorious !
We had afternoon plans this day so we decided to get some brunch at Trails End. IMO Trails End is super underrated. We were going to eat there at a later date this trip but remembered it was brunch on the weekends so moved it to this day 😋

We took the boat over to Fort Wilderness :)

When we got off the boat at the FW a man jokingly said "you got done touring MK already ?!" :joyfull:
We had some time before our reservation so we wandered around a bit

357679
357680

:hilarious: our ride photo though
357682
We did get quite a bit wet as usual it seems.
Anyway I took another excederin and finally my migraine started to improve so I was a bit hungry.
I wanted to try some Festival of the Arts food so we stopped to get my Mom some lunch first (this is how we survive festivals since she never really wants to try the food :joyfull: ).
La Cantina - kids cheese empanadas and nachos
357683
My Mom said it was delicious as usual.
Our first stop was Pop Arts
Here we got the Almond Frangipane Cake layered with Raspberry Jam and Callebaut Belgian Chocolate
357684
This is how my Mom wanted to pose for this photo :happy:
