Disney Adventure 2015 -- Day 5

We had a plan to go to Animal Kingdom and do a couple of things there. However we woke up to very cool, cloudy weather and we felt lazy too. After all we had been on the go for over 10 hours the day before. 

So a new plan ---
We had coffee in our room and then took a bus to the Magic Kingdom. From there we got on a small boat and went to the Polynesian Hotel. We arrived there a few minutes after 11:00 and we were pleased the Kona Restaurant was still serving breakfast for that is what we had in mind.

When we were seated, we learned the restaurant was serving Red Velvet Pancakes in honor of February having Valentine’s Day. That is what my daughter decided to have. 

 I chose the Kona French Toast stuffed with bananas. That is what I go to this restaurant for.

After this fine meal, I thought we would go to the Magic Kingdom for a bit, but my daughter wanted to ride the monorail. So we took the Resort Monorail to the Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC) and transferred there to the EPCOT monorail. We rode there and rode all the way back. Then we transferred again to the Resort Monorail and went to the Grand Floridian Hotel. We went to gift shops and found somethings to occupy ourselves a bit while we vegged out with some coffee. Then we went back on the monorail to the Contemporary Hotel. There we went to CafĂ© Contempo and filled our mugs with soda. 

About 2:30 we started towards Fort Wilderness and Hoop-Dee-Doo. First we got back on the Resort Monorail and rode it to the Magic Kingdom. Then we went to the dock for the Fort Wilderness boat. We arrived there about 3:20 and went to the Settlement Store. We got muffins and orange juice for tomorrow’s breakfast. 

Then we walked to Pioneer Hall and checked in for our adventure. At 4:00 the doors opened. We had a table in the very back of the main floor, but had extra high chairs so it was easy for us see the stage. 

We enjoyed the whole show -- the music, the jokes, all of it. And we ate and ate. We started with a nice salad and warm cornbread. On this cool day, the warm cornbread was special treat. Our main course was chicken, BBQ ribs, mashed potatoes, and corn. 

Then dessert, strawberry shortcake, arrived in a spectacular fashion. 

 At the end of the show my daughter had great fun playing the washboard with a spoon. 

After the show we walked back to the boat dock and I noticed a boat from Contemporary was arriving so we jumped on that rather than wait in the cool wind for the Fort Wilderness boat. From the Contemporary Hotel we took the monorail around to the Magic Kingdom again, and from there walked to bus stop #11 for our return to Coronado Springs. A great day.
