Disney World (November 2019) - Day 3: Magic Kingdom

Today, I'm picking back up with our most recent Disney trip at Magic Kingdom, which began after I ran the half marathon.

Disney Travel Day: Wine and Dine Expo & Animal Kingdom
Disney Day 2: Wine and Dine 10K & Kids Races & Hollywood Studios/Epcot
Disney Day 3: Wine and Dine Half Marathon & Magic Kingdom
Disney Day 4: Boarding the Disney Dream
Disney Day 5: Castaway Cay
Disney Day 6: Nassau
Disney Day 7: At Sea Day
Disney Day 8: Disney Springs and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

My friends ventured over to Hollywood Studios while I was running so they could explore Star Wars land a bit more. After running, I snagged breakfast at the Pop Century food court (Mickey waffles, of course), then showered and made my way to the bus stop. By this time, my friends told me they were finished with Hollywood Studios and wanted to head over to Magic Kingdom which was fine with me!

Seeing the Christmas decorations was so exciting, especially so early in the season!

Our first few rides included several in Fantasyland along with our fast passes for Mine Train. Brayden loves the carousel, so that's where we started.

We also rode the Tea Cups which was hilarious because we had two separate vehicles for our group - the ones who wanted to spin and the ones who wanted to remain tame (me)! With three gown adults and one child, it was a tight squeeze but oh so much fun!

We also had fun waving at people from the TTA!

After posing for a few medal pictures with the castle, we boarded a monorail for the Polynesian and our dinner reservation at Ohana!

If you've never been, you need to go! This restaurant and all of the food offered there is DELICIOUS!

My favorite are the fried dumplings. I could eat them all day!

The assortment of meat is wonderful, too. Dinner here is served family style and all you can eat. The starters are placed at your table and the meat is delivered on skewers from the wait staff.

My mouth is seriously watering right now just thinking about it!

The best part and literally my favorite dessert on property is the bread pudding with bananas foster sauce and ice cream. It's seriously SO delicious!

Our dinner was scheduled early on purpose, so we would have a chance to return to the Magic Kingdom to watch the fireworks.

We had to stop for a purple wall photo first, though!

...and poor Everett got to hold all of our bags!

The castle lights were gorgeous as always and I was so excited to see them once again!

This was the first time for several in our group to see Happily Ever After and they all loved it!

We somehow thought the MK was open until 11 p.m. that night, but it actually closed at 9 p.m., so we joined the mass exodus to take a bus ride back to Pop Century. Brayden was handed these stickers by our sweet bus driver on the way! So cute!

An early(ish) night was in order because we had a big day coming up - the Disney Dream!! Stay tuned for more!
