We started Sunday with a healthy breakfast (ha!) at McDonald's and headed over to Disney's Wilderness Lodge to check in. This is one of my favorite places to stay! Themed on a combination of National Parks Lodges architectural styles, the Wilderness Lodge is truly an escape form everyday life. The many fireplaces scattered throughout the 7 floors of the lobby, the creek which begins in the lobby and flows out over a waterfall to the outside pool, the lakeside setting, the geyser by the pool - what a great place! Holden played in the lobby for a bit, then we took a boat to the Magic Kingdom.
We only chose a few rides this time: Alladin's Flying Carpets, Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse and Pirates of the Caribbean. But we had a wonderful lunch at the Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and his friends, and , most importantly, Holden got to meet and hug Mickey Mouse!
We spent a little time traveling via monorail to look at the Magic Kingdom resorts (Contemporary, Polynesian and Grand Floridian). At the grand Floridian, we stopped for a much-needed cookie & tea break and Holden got in a little TV time in the lobby! (see pics).
We then headed back to the Wilderness Lodge, where we explored the different floors, ate some dinner and read by the small fireplace just down the hall from our room before bed.
