Great report!

That blue thing at Satu'li Canteen is fantastic. We also like the stupid burger pods. Apparently they're on the kids menu now but we had no shame as 2 grown-ass adults walking in and ordering them (though I did substitute the milk that came with it for a beer which may be a first). :lol:

Thanks!
My kids got the burger pods, and said they tasted a lot like a McDonald's burger. I agree about the deserts. We had the chocolate one as well, and it was very good.

I'll post some more pictures tomorrow night, I'm just too tired tonight to do it.

sorry about the delay and updates, but life's been pretty hectic.
Today's update comes from the Magic Kingdom. During our trip we were able to spend three and a half days at the Magic Kingdom which gave us plenty of time to experience all of the attractions. Dome of them multiple times.

During the three and a half days at the Magic Kingdom we were able to have meals at Liberty Tree Tavern, Polynesian Resort ohana, and Crystal Palace. We also had a lunch at I believe it was called Park Plaza at the end of Main Street.

The park was busy, but the lines seem to move really fast and we waited no longer than 35 minutes for one attraction. The rest of the attractions we were able to score some good fast passes for. The only attractions that we skipped over we're Hall of Presidents and Tom Sawyer Island.

All in all we had a great time at the Magic Kingdom. The only negatives that I can think of ,and I really had to think hard were that there was some effects not working on Big Thunder and Splash Mountain.
I noticed the waterfall on the lift Hill on Big Thunder was not working during any of our visits. Did they get rid of this effect or was it just down for maintenance?
Splash Mountain had quite a few effects not working and look like it was need of a refurbishment. One thing that kind of stood out to us was the rabbit that hops around the fence was not working, and greasy hand prints all over the wall behind it.
Neither of these things had any effect and how much fun we had. The spark Still Remains one of my favorite parks in the world.
We were also able to check out some of the Tron coaster construction going on. I've included a few shots of that in the photo portion. This is going to be a welcome addition to the park as it really was in need of another big ticket attraction.

Speaking of photos let's get on to them shall we...

Magic Kingdom is home to several these boat rides

It's a small world as one of them

The other one is Pirates of the Caribbean

I love this ride but I do prefer the Disneyland version slightly more.

one of my personal favorite attractions at the park is Carousel of Progress

There are several scenes throughout the attraction

Dinner at Crystal Palace is always a big hit with the kids

Speaking of food ,this park has more snack options than any other Park. This was some ice cream concoction from Tomorrowland.

This was the hey hey themed ice cream cone from the Dole Whip stand

One of my favorite desserts are the churros with a dipping sauce at Pecos Bills.

I apologize I didn't get a picture before the plate was destroyed, but the desserts at Liberty Tree Tavern were remarkable as well.

Wow, what a trip. Since I live in Florida now we rarely do more than a 2 or 3 day park trip anymore but this report really makes we wanna take a full week and and take everything in.

If you don't mind me asking which community was that first rental house in? We've done a few of those and loved them, just curious where that was.
