Day 2 at The Magic Kingdom was a great success!
It started off a bit stressful because the entry to Animal Kingdom was seriously backed up and we were about 15 minutes late for our breakfast reservation at Tusker House. But, they still seated us right away and the characters came one right after the other, which was great!
This was our 3rd breakfast at the Tusker House. It's a great character meal and the food is so good! A buffet of sausage, bacon, fruit, grits, plantains, and so many other things to try. And, of course, the Mickey Waffles are always delish. This meal we got to meet Mickey, Daisy, Donald and Goofy. Minnie Mouse was there, but we decided not to wait for her, because we had a fast pass for the Finding Nemo show.
We'd never seen this show before, but I want to see it every time we go from now on. It's BEAUTIFUL!!! It's so fun the way they brought the movie to life using puppets and song. It's colorful and clever and I loved every second of it.
After a quick ice cream break (hey, it's hot here!), we went on the Safari. Our 3rd time doing it, and it was probably the best. Lots of animals appeared, including a female lion. The kids were so tired by this point (the night before with the 9:30 PM doctor visit had them all up until after 11pm, but still awake by 8am) that #2 almost feel asleep in my lap during the safari, so we called it a day after that. Back to the hotel for nap time and dinner, and then off to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!!!
She was so tired, she hardly cared there was an elephant behind her.
This was a special event that required additional tickets. The park closed early that day and only those with wrist bands could stay for the festivities. Free cookies and hot chocolate, character meet and greets everywhere (Jack Skellington, The Seven Dwarves, princesses with their princes), all rides were open with virtually no wait times and a beautiful Christmas Parade that included Ana and Eksa, Olaf, Buzz and Woody, all the princesses and princes, toy soldiers, reindeer and ended with Santa. The kids LOVED it. But by the time it ended, it was 11pm. They all feel asleep before we got to the monorail to head home. Tomorrow we will take it easy and sleep in. They need it!
#1 thought I'd be funny to close his eyes. I didn't laugh.

Of course I'll include my OOTD. Nothing fancy at all - a Lularoe perfect tee, Gap skinnies and my favorite CROCS!!! Go ahead, hate on Crocs. I just don't care. These shoes are so comfortable and practical and I can't live without them!!!
My shirt is all wrinkled from the baby carrier.
Until next time (hopefully tomorrow!),
