First Day of Our Disney Vacation

First I wanted to show you a few pictures of Coronado Springs where we stayed. I had mentioned before that we did not spend much time there, and although the resort is nice, I think I would want to stay somewhere closer to the Magic Kingdom the next time we go. The only bad part was waiting on the bus every morning and evening. It was a minimum of 30 minutes to go anywhere on the bus and most nights it would take us at least 45 minutes to get back to the room. We would definitely consider staying somewhere with access to the monorail because it is just much easier with young children, especially when you have a double stroller. We actually met friends at Disney (there were a total of 13 of us) and they stayed at Bay Lake Tower (which is awesome) and it is within walking distance to the Magic Kingdom so we spent a few afternoons there, it was much easier than going all the way back to our room.

This is the little area where we would eat breakfast every morning!





On our first morning, we had reservations at the Polynesian for a character breakfast with Lilo and Stitch, Pluto, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. We had an awesome time at breakfast, all of the characters came to our table and spent a lot of time with the kids. They took pictures and signed autograph books. The food was amazing and it was overall a great experience! At one point all of the characters formed a conga line and danced around the dining room. They passed out maraca's to the kids and had the kids dancing, it was a lot of fun! Brennan was not afraid at all. He just jabbered in his own little language to all of them. Pluto was so funny, he got down on his knees and chased Brennan around. It was so cute, Brennan was just laughing! If you are going to Disney and want to do a character breakfast, I would highly recommend this one. Our friends that we were with have been to Disney many, many times and this is their favorite one by far!

Oh wow! You got some great pictures!! I know what you mean about the buses though. It is nice not having to drive everywhere but waiting in the lines for the buses was NOT fun at all!! :) We were at Disney in September. I blogged about each and every day all week long about our week there when I got back, just like you are doing here. It was so much fun reliving the fun all over again in pictures! Can't wait to see the rest of your vacation here.
