For Jake’s and my second day at Disney World we spent it at the Magic Kingdom. This is the park we were most looking forward too knowing it was going to be a lot like Disneyland. It was similar to Disneyland, but yet super different. For one, it was HUGE, and a lot of the displays/ restaurants, etc. were different. It was fun to see the changes! I think going to Disneyland so many times over the years made me more partial to Disneyland. I still had so much fun though and would go to Disney World again in a heart beat!
Some of my favorite changes were having new places to eat! Disney World had its own app, and every night I would research all the restaurants and star the ones I wanted to eat at! It was super helpful in navigating our trip and finding places we wanted to try and eat! My favorite part was the app listed the menus and the prices so I could figure out what places we wanted to splurge and save at.
The first place we tried was the Friars Nook. We got the bacon cheeseburger mac and cheese! It was seriously the cheesiest mac and cheese I have ever had! It was loaded with cheese! It was super tasty but so rich I could only have a few bites!
So next we headed to Gaston’s Tavern to try out a LoFou’s Brew and got a chocolate croissant to go with it! I love Disney’s chocolate croissant! They are one of my favorites! As for the brew, it had a nice froth to the top of the drink and a good flavor. Its worth a try if you happen to be in the area 🙂 All through out the day we ate sugar cookies, turkey shaped rice crispy treats, popcorn, Mickey ice cream sandwiches, fudge, churros and the list goes on! We just snacked all day long 🙂 One thing I love about Jake is he is always up for sharing meals, which I love so we get to try more things to eat!
For dinner we tried the Harbour House. I really wanted to try the lobster roll, it looked so good, but I was craving fried fish, so we got the fish and chips. It was pretty good so I was happy we went with that. The Harbour House was probably one of my favorite places we ate at because there were so many places to sit! Most of the restaurants had 2 stories of seating! How rad is that?! I always choose to eat our meal on the top floor and look out the window or sit on a balcony and enjoy our meal. Nothing better than a Disney view while you eat!
In the evening we got to watch Disney’s Electrical Parade. This is something I have always dreamed about since I was a little girl and have always wanted to. I actually thought the Electrical Parade no longer existed, but was ecstatic to find out it still went on and we would get to see it! It was just as amazing as I dreamed! I loved the music, the lights, it was all fantastic! I was so sad, my favorite part of the parade we didn’t get any good pictures but they had a couple patriotic light floats and I loved it! Sometimes I forget how much American Pride I had, but I am really so grateful every time I see someone honor our country. I am so grateful for so many who have served America to make it what it is today.
After the parade Jake and I ran around and caught a few more rides before the park closed. It was a fantastic day! More Disney Pics to come end of next week…. 🙂
