Disney World Part 2

Sunday, January 18, 2015

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I made a couple changed around our house that had big impact.  Sometimes those are my favorite changes.

Back to Disney!  Day 2 we spent at Hollywood Studios with Grandma and Grandpa.  Grandpa rented a scooter for the day. I highly recommend this for folks that have difficulties with lots of walking. And as an added perk you get great seating for shows.

We started the day watching the Star Wars show.  I had thought the boys would be too scared for Jedi training...and I was right!  Then we rode Star Tours.  Lucas also thought it was scary.  Geesh!

 Of course, you exit the ride through the Star Wars gift shop.  M&L picked out really cool light sabers that "Activate" (they extend and retract into the handle).  They played with them all day!  As added benefits they have a belt clip (I am not schlepping them around) and they pack easily.

Their favorite part of the day was riding the Speeder Bike!  I need to blow up and print these pictures for their room.

We also watched the Indiana Jones show, Beauty and the Beast and Fantasmic.  Again, Lucas was scared at Fantasmic.  He is only 4.  And Mason thought it was scary too and he's 5.  Might not be the best thing to plan to do for this age group.  The show is centered around Disney bad guys.

We finished the night by walking around The Boardwalk.  We wound up ordering pizza, wings, beer and bottled water from Anthony's Pizza Delivery.  This is the best late night meal at Disney when you just want to unwind after a long day.  We munched on pizza while watching the Epcot fireworks from our balcony.  Does it get any better?!?

The Swan & Dolphin also offer The Pantry delivery service.  It's a really affordable delivery service with anything from a 6 pack of beer for $8 to  the CARTOON BREAKFAST: A quart of milk along with your choice of four cereals for a perfect morning watching cartoons for $6.50.  Obviously these items could be obtained for less if you bring them yourself, but good luck getting breakfast this cheap anywhere else at Disney!

Our balcony overlooking this view might have been my favorite part of our trip.  We ordered room service each morning and would sit on the balcony and watch the water taxis go by.  Plus I find it faster to eat in the room since we have to take turns getting ready with only one bathroom.

Order room service for breakfast at your Disney Resort and beer and bottled water from The Pantry are two of my personal favorite Disney World tips.  

What are your favorite tips for Disney World? I would love to hear them.
