Countdown to Walt Disney World 2015…by taking a look at 2012…WDW Day #4

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

We started this day with an appointment for the DS at The Pirate’s League in the Magic Kingdom.  They didn’t have any openings on the day we’d planned to be at the MK so we went that morning just for the appointment.  It was the first time for DH and the kids to walk down Main Street with the Cinderella Castle at the end.  I cannot tell a lie…I got a little teary excited when we turned that corner and saw it for the first time.

We ended up eating lunch at Casey’s Corner before heading to Downtown Disney for the rest of the day.

This is probably my favorite picture of the trip!

Downtown Disney…we really enjoyed it.  We bought most of our souvenirs while there.  I knew I wanted to get ear hats for the boys, so we did that first.  We had them embroidered with the boys’ names.  DD and I both got the sparkly ears.

We ended the day with supper at Chef Mickey’s in the Contemporary Resort.  When I went to WDW in 1986 with my family, I was 15.  We stayed at the Contemporary.  It is my dream to go back someday and stay there again.  So, when we first entered the resort on the monorail, I loved it.  It brought back so many memories from that trip.

So, we had supper at Chef Mickey’s.  It’s a buffet.  We didn’t actually really enjoy the food at all.  But the character interaction was AWESOME!  That’s actually what redeemed the restaurant.
