Second Day at Disney

We knew we would not have any problems getting up so early plus with the hour difference in time...chickadee was right on schedule, waking up at 6:30, which was 5:30 our time...

So first thing the next morning, from the tip I got from one of the photographers at Animal Kingdom, we headed to Hollywood Studios, going straight to the big hat there to see as many characters as we could...

We're waiting for the park to officially open...
 We head straight to the big hat and there's Donald and Daisy...
 Next is Piglet
 Then we hang around...and got the scoop that Chip and Dale will be making an appearance.  Emma looking all chipper, Momma feeling like I have huge bags under my eyes from little sleep and from migraines.  A little too much excitement for me...but thankfully I have Treximet to help so I can keep going...
 So as we're hanging around the big hat, sweating buckets...we ask people to take our picture...

 And then we see Chip and Dale...Emma was so excited, she ran up to them and grabbed one by the hand...I think I may have said this in the other post...some of the photos may be the same...but decided to put everything on the one post here.
 The girl is not shy and was sooo happy to complete her autograph book of everyone that was on the front cover of the book...
 And then we got in the picture too...21 years ago, we had our picture taken with Chip...had to do it...
 Next was Tigger and Eerore...
 And we got in that one too...
 We "could" have waited to see who else would show up...but we (me and Dennis) were ready to be all done with characters...so we headed over to Disney Junior...
 in the Disney Animation part of the park...
 You sit on the floor...it's only 24 mins...and we were glad that we were right in front...
 I think all the adults knew the words to the songs just as much as the kids...it was fun...
 All the characters from the show are muppets...it starts with the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse...and Toodles  helping with Minnie Birthday surprise party...
Handy Manny comes up next in the show...
 And then Little Einsteins...
 Then Jake and the Neverland Pirates...
 Then we hurry over for our lunch reservations at Hollywood and Vine to meet the bear of the hour...Agent Oso...
 June from Little Einsteins...
 And Leo from Little Einsteins...
 But Agent Oso was Emma's highlight and the reason we went.  The buffet was very good...we loved all of the food at Disney...very pricey, but this was a good way to see characters in the A/C too...and she LOVES Oso!
 He came by twice and the second time she asked him to sit next to her...and he did...I said this in the other post too...but she's talking about how he and Dada are boys; me and her are girls.  Then I asked her what her favorite show was, thinking she would say which Oso show was her favorite...nope...she says Mickey Mouse!!!  
 Emma's personality gets a lot of attention...so one of the cast members at the diner came by to say hi and talk to her...she asked her why she was afraid of Handy Manny (for some reason all of a sudden, she didn't want him to come to her table).  And as bluntly as a 3-year old can say it, she said he's a boy, and went on to say that she doesn't watch him. 
 VERY fun experience...they sing and dance...and Emma and I got up there too until Handy Manny came by ;)  We got it on video...but pics for now...you can see Emma and Dennis in the background between the cast member and Oso...
 I found out about the place the week of our trip and cancelled one breakfast we had because I knew she would love to see Oso.  But I didn't see it on the list when making reservations online...I stumbled on a YouTube video of kids meeting Oso at the restaurant...so glad I found out about it...
 We saw all the characters...so we planned next to go to the Marketplace to do some shopping...all kinds of shops, not just Disney...very fun...it's a nightlife place to go to as well...Planet Hollywood, and other nightlife type places...

No nightlife for us for awhile though...

Emma got to ride the little train there...the girl loves trains...
 Pictures of some of the shops we went into...
Gotta love Little Miss Matched...and they had Disney ones...so Emma and I have matching miss matched socks ;)


 And another ice cream break...
 Did a lot of Disney shopping at this huge place...bigger selection of everything...it was nice...
 It's got three entrances...these are just two of them...
 We stayed there and walked down to what's called Pleasure Island and had dinner at Wolfgang's place...very good...
 We walked so much, that we took the boat back...
 So nice to see the sun setting...
Day three coming next...

Pin It!
