Tues 25th November
Aaron came through to us during night and we were up at 3am. Kids and mum then got up at 5am.
This morning we had an ADR at Crystal Palace! I had heard such good things about this through ******* that I was quite excited – maybe a bit more than the kids were!
Once everyone was up we all got showered and dressed and managed to be out the door for 7.20am!
We set the Tom Tom up and found Walt Disney World with relative ease arriving at around 7.45am
By the time we parked and found our way to Monorail it was already 8am and our ADR was for 8.15am! We went through bag check but that seemed to take a while as we had a back pack, my handbag and mum had a bag! We were officially late!
Us on the Monorail!
First Glimpse of the Castle
Finally checked in at podium at 8.15 and we were seated within 10mins! The interior is just beautiful with lots of Winnie the Pooh themed Topiray:
Our server was Stephen and he was just so lovely and genuinely seemed interested in us? I know its his job and he has to be smiley etc but he was just lovely and I had that magic feeling! He gave us lots of hints and tips and told us to go to City Hall to get Aaron’s Birthday badge when its his birthday ( which we knew but didn’t tell him that!LOL).
No longer had we sat down but the Characters started coming thick and fast! This is where it started to get a little stressful and a little less “magical” for me. Aaron was still in full on Grumpy mode and just was so whingey , I know it shouldn’t have, but it put me in a bit of a mood as I didn’t have time to watch the other two enjoy it and I wasn’t prepared for the autographs so it was all a little rushed.
I think because I had put so much into the planning I was starting to worry if it was all going to be a bit of a disaster!
Aaron never ate either which was fine as we didn’t have to pay for him but I was getting concerned he was genuinely not well. The food was lovely not that I got to eat much!LOL But lots to choose from. My kids are the most picky of eaters so even though it was a lot of money the buffet was perfect as they could try something and if they didn’t like it go get something else!
