(Days 7-8)

Friday was our last full day at Disney and was a busy day for us!  We were up bright and early and at Animal Kingdom when it opened. We started off the morning on a fun note meeting Timon and Rafiki outside the entrance. The line was short and we got some fun pictures. We did everything we wanted to do at Animal Kingdom. We enjoyed the Lion King Show and I saw the Nemo Musical for the first time finally! We rode the safari first thing in the morning when we got there. The very last thing we did, and probably one of our most favorite parts of the whole week was the Flights of Wonder bird show.  We had front row seats and just loved watching the birds soar above our heads. It was a really fun show for all of us. At 3pm we left Animal Kingdom and headed over to EPCOT. I had missed an afternoon at EPCOT because of being sick and that meant I also missed our reservation at Le Cellier Steakhouse in Canada at the World Showcase. This was probably the reservation I was most looking forward to.  Our resort manager made it such that our non-park hopper ticket was a park hopper for one day so that we could get back into EPCOT and with our good luck; Le Cellier had a last minute cancellation for three!  We walked around EPCOT for a while enjoying the amazing Flower and Garden Festival before heading over to Canada. We had the most delicious filet mignon for dinner. It was amazing. To anyone who is a steak lover, a reservation at Le Cellier is a must!  The dinner is a 2 credit meal but the lunch is only a 1 credit meal and the lunch menu is just as wonderful.  The cheddar cheese soup and the pretzel bread were delicious as well. And for dessert the maple Crème Brule was amazing!  We didn’t stay for Illuminations because it had already been a very long day but we did enjoy walking through all the other countries on our way out of the park and watching the sun set over the EPCOT dome was breathtaking!

Saturday was our departure day and I’m the kind of person who would be too stressed out to enjoy a park day on the day we had to pack up and leave.  So instead I planned a breakfast reservation at 1900 Park Fare for the Supercalifragilistic Breakfast.  This was probably my most favorite breakfast character meal of all my trips to Disney.  The characters were very fun. We met Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter, Mary Poppins, Tigger and Pooh. The Mad Hatter was a complete riot and the Tigger we met had to have been the funniest Tigger we’ve ever experienced. He was so silly with my daughter.  I have some of the best pictures of her giggling at all his silly moves. The food was really delicious. We enjoyed made to order omelets, bagels, breakfast meat, Mickey waffles, fresh fruit and lots of fun goodies.  We also got to ride the monorail on our way over to the Grand Floridian which was on my “to do” list for the trip. After our breakfast we took the bus over to Downtown Disney and had a great time picking out just the right souvenirs to bring home. And the final fun thing we did was to take the boat from Downtown Disney back over to Port Orleans French Quarter.


Even though we lost a couple days with both my husband and I being sick, we really crammed in every last little thing we wanted to do. We had a fun but exhausting week at Disney and really, isn’t that the true sign of a great trip!
