Wed. May 25
Woke up and had breakfast with Lilo and Stitch at Ohana's.
There was fresh fruit, waffles, eggs, bacon and sausage.
At one point Bethany decided to eat just half of a waffle.....
So she cut it in half!
After breakfast we went to Magic Kingdom. First stop was Pirates. She got to see the new movie right before we left. She loved it. Here's a photo of the new face in the 'cloud'.
Can you even see it? I don't know who it is, but she thought it was 'very cool'.
Then she rode Space Mountain. I sat this one out. But she was gone for about 20 minutes. I bought a few treasures in the gift shop. When she got back, we did Buzz Lightyear. I swear I had more points than her throughout the whole ride, but in the very end, she ended up beating me by a couple thousand points.
Haunted Mansion was next. It was awesome as they have changed the way sccoters and wheelchairs enter. We went through the front just like everyone else. Handicap entrance was to use the exit and just miss the whole stretching room completely. After you leave the stretch room....then you take your chair outside and then come back in through the exit and get in the buggy. Pretty much the same ride through out.....but what a shock in the end. Used to be you got a ghost in your buggy...they just sat between you. Our ghost put his hands on our heads and switched them. My head was on Bethany and her head was on me.What a scream!!!!
Went back to the POLY for a rest and food. Then off to Epcot for a short time. We rode Figment and the 'very boring side' of Mission Space. Bethany loves the orange side but the wait was 90 minutes, the green side was only 10. Did some shoppingand back to the POLY as we had to have dinner and find the marina for our cruise.
This is our boat. Our captain was Paul. He was a hoot. He was from Ohio..like us..and he has worked for Disney for 30 years. Most of his time spentat the POLY. He has been lifeguard, head life guard, worked in concierge and now drives the boats. We got there a little early. He said, Let's go now! and we did. It was still light and he took us to a backstage area which was really neat. He took us into the dry dock area and we saw where they keep the boats at night and told us a very interesting story. He got a message to return to the dry dock area in the middle of the day. That was very odd. When he got there a very tall blonde with dark glasses and a big hat and two young boys, also in glasses and baseball hats climbed out of the back of a limo andgot in his boat. He drove them to the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa at Walt Disney World and dropped them off at the dock. Can you even guess who it was!? Does the names Diana, William and Harry ring a bell? Then we cruised around and saw the old River Country, Discovery Island and he was so good in all the old history of WDW.
We loved watching the fireworks from the boat. The photos aren't the greatest because the boat kept moving. But we loved the view. No crowds, snacks were provided and music piped on to the boat. Very nice.

What a great day!
How did you like your 'Ohana breakfast? This is a favorite for DDs and myself. That said, there have been several people who were less than impressed who have eaten there lately.

I like Ohana's more than CRT, or Chef Mickey's. They are fun no doubt about it, but I like Ohana's because they bring the food to you. But you can get more of what you like. They tried to bring us waffles 3 times! Chef's is loud and out of control....and sometimes that is just where we want to be. Bethany was always amazed at the napkin dance. The first year we saw them get on tables and chairs. Ohana's only gets wild when they do the parade and if you have a table near the window, you can still enjoy your breakfast while the rest of the room goes nuts. As long as we stay at POLY, we will probably have breakfast there.
I love the scambled eggs, Bethany hates eggs, but she loved the fried potatos. Food quality was good. We also liked the fresh fruit.

We've never eaten at CM's before - not sure why, just haven't. We've done CRT twice (once for each DD's first trip) and will stay away from there now solely for pricing purposes. We ate at Akershus a few visits ago, to see the princesses and that was just great. I like 'Ohana for all the reasons you mentioned. The fruit is great, as are the potatos. I get sick if I eat scrambled or fried eggs (although any other sort is just fine with me - I'm strange like that ), so I love it that 'Ohana has so many other 'sides' to go along with the eggs that I'm not hungry when we leave.

Another great report dizneymom . You & your daughter, Bethany, are lovely . Ohana's breakfast is my favorite .

Great report, Love the photos of the firework cruise.
We enjoy Ohana for breakfast only! We've only done CM for breakfast & I preferred Ohana just because the breakfast came to us no queues to wait in & not as hectic. I think most of the buffets are the same for breakfast: CP, H&V, Akershus, CRT & CMs these are the ones we've tried, so Ohana was a little different. Oh & I like the juice :)
Cant wait for your next installment.

Bethany loved the juice! It is always on tap in the club lounge. She filled her empty water bottle with the juice before we left. I can take a few sips, but it much too sweet. I am a diabetic and it makes my head hurt if I drink too much.
