It was now around 5:00 and our blood sugar was
plummeting having had lunch around noon and been out playing in the park all
day. We stepped outside and noticed that there was no wait for Mickey’s Philharmagic!
That show is amazing so without hesitation in we went. I think my favorite part
this time was Aladdin. I love that one so much and even though we have been
there over and over I feel like I still always get startled when the bottles
pop at the end of “Be Our Guest”. We lingered in the shop for a few minutes and
then just decided to wait it out over at Cinderella’s Royal Table where we
would be having dinner. We snapped
a few pics at the fountain and headed in.
first entered, Cinderella was out at tea and would be back for our pictures in
a few minutes so we took some pictures and chilled out in the air conditioning.
When she did return we were after only one family and got our official CRT
pictures taken. Afterwards, we were given the a-ok to head up the stairs to the
restaurant. We were greeted with a “Good evening Sir! Good evening Milady!” and
Rob was given a Prince sword, and myself a Princess wand. We were seated by the
window and had a fantastic view of Fantasyland. Our waitress was great, the
food was phenomenal and I can’t even begin to describe the magic of our meal.
Well, little did we know that who should come out with the Fairy Godmother but
Suzy and Perla! I had no idea we would get to meet characters besides Cindy! It
made a perfect dinner even BETTER! So amazing!
dinner we ended our first day in Magic Kingdom. We were in the vacation spirit,
had a perfect experience and decided to check out our room. We were in
Martinique, since we had paid for preferred. Our room was 2629 and it was
awesome. I had requested a corner room since I read they were slightly bigger
and had two windows. We got just that. But it was an inner corner room so we
had a nice courtyard view. We also were so close to the main building, called
Old Port Royale and the main pool that we used their bus stop daily instead of
the Martinique village bus stop. It was a perfect location. Once we entered the
room the first thing I noticed was TOWEL ANIMALS! Our mouskeeper had left us an
Octopus and a Hippo. Plus, our luggage was waiting for us from Magical Express
AND the basket I had ordered to surprise Rob had been delivered. Everything
looked perfect. We checked everything out, opened our luggage and unpacked a
getting even more fabulous. Since I had had refill mugs put in our basket we
headed over to fill ‘em up. After a nice stroll to Old Port Royale and back we
decided to throw on our bathing suits and go for a night swim (it was around 11:00pm
by now). There were very few people at the main pool and the Banana Cabana pool
bar seemed to be hoppin. We relaxed in the pool for a while before heading back
to the room to call it a night. What started out as a hectic, crazy, stressed
out New York early morning—had turned into a fun, fantastic and magical Orlando
