Disney Anniversary Trip- Day 2- Magic Kingdom- Story time with Belle,LeFou’s Brew, Dole Whips, and Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom

on April 8, 2013

Good morning and happy Monday to everyone!

I hope everyone had a great weekend, I know we did.

So where were we?232323232%7Ffp54376)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;;966; 34;nu0mrj

Oh yeah, Day 2, Magic Kingdom. From the Haunted Mansion we wandered around Tomorrow land, then grabbed a quick bite to eat at Cosmic Ray’s

Angus Bacon and Cheeseburger and Fries

232323232%7Ffp54373)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;;9 9(434;nu0mrj

Was a decent burger but nothing special, if I had my choice from now on, I will do only sit downs at Disney, the food is definitely far supreme and much more exciting, but a burger will always do in a pinch. We also had a cup of carrot cake which was good but the icing was kinda soft and not the best carrot cake of the trip.

After we walked through, we met Deb 232323232%7Ffp543 4)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;;9949334;nu0mrj

Close up of Deb, she looked really impressive 232323232%7Ffp54394)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;;9949434;nu0mrjDeb is where the show starts, apparently the castle wants to surprise Belle with her own story, since she loves books so much and they enlist the audience to act as the cast. My Prince was picked for one of the Knights

For being part of the show, Kris got this awesome book mark

It was really cute to watch all the little kids acting but even funnier to watch my husband and the other guy chosen to play the knights, march for half the show, turns out only Kris can follow orders, the other guy stopped after like 10 seconds, lol!

After the show we turned the corner and found this!

Gaston’s Tavern, too cool!232323232%7Ffp7347;)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;;9499334;nu0mrj

We stepped inside and decided to use our first snack credit and share Lefou’s brew (cannot use snack credit on souvenir glasses, though)

Lefou’s brew- Frozen Apple Juice with a hint of Toasted Marshmallow and topped with all Natural Passion fruit-mango foam

The drink was really good, but I think I gave myself brain freeze a million times. The marshmallow with the apple juice was really nice, one of my favorite drinks of the trip.

The line was neat, however, the ride is identical to the one in Disneyland once you get in. You go through the story of the little mermaid very quickly, some parts are really cut out, however, on the way out you hear Scuttle say that is the story how he remembers it. So that makes it make more sense, since he wasn’t under the water and missed some stuff.

After going under the sea, we thought we would head back to Frontierland and check is Big Thunder Mountain was working, we wandered through Rapunzel’s Bathroom area on the way so we could experience it in the daylight

I am really happy we experienced the new area in the day, was so much we missed the night before and I loved the little details, especially Pascal, nice touch!

Once I was sufficiently certain there was no more little secrets in the area, we set on the quest of getting our first Dole Whip, for years I have heard about the wonders of the Dole whip and we were determined to check it out. So off to Aloha Isle we went and the line was a sign we had made it to our destination. Once we made it to the front of the line we were overwhelmed with what exactly a Dole Whip was, so we asked a cast member for her favorite and got that. It was the citrus swirl (orange and vanilla soft serve) with pineapple juice floater.

232323232%7Ffp54348)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;;9(3 934;nu0mrj

It was delicious but now I am curious about all the other varieties. The ice cream reminded me of an Orange Julius and the pineapple juice made a nice compliment to the sweetness.

When we finished our  snack, we headed to big Thunder where they let us use our fast pass since the ride was finally working! we moved on to check out the new Sorcerer’s of The Magic Kingdom game.

We found the area in Liberty Square (behind the Christmas shoppe and next to Tiana’s garden) to enlist in Merlin’s Army and become apprentice sorcerers, sorcerer Mickey hat optional (like Dumbledore’s Army but with cards instead of wands, lol!)

232323232%7Ffp54393)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;(2 55634;nu0mrj

The goal is to help the wizard Merlin fight the forces of evil in this interactive role-playing game.

Hades, god of the Underworld, is looking to make the Magic Kingdom  his new home. However in order to do so, he must reassemble the Crystal of the Magic Kingdom, whose 4 shards are  hidden throughout the park. Also, the other Disney villains are helping him retrieve the pieces, and it’s up to us to stop them!

Once we enlisted (gave the cast member our keys to the kingdom to get us into the system and ensure we only got one pack of cards) we were given a key, a really cool map and a set of cards each. Then we were taken to a portal to be shown how to cast spells and open portals throughout the park.


Once we had been trained off we went to the first place on our map which was on Main Street USA, we were fighting Cruella Deville this round

So we headed to Main Street and after searching the area found our marker, placed our key against the key hole and the portal opened

Pongo filling us in on Cruella’s plot to steal the puppies and take the crystal

From there we moved to this portal232323232%7Ffp54394)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;;9 8734;nu0mrj

They are in really clever spots, like a window display in the Emporium232323232%7Ffp543 3)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;;9(3; 34;nu0mrjWe continued going from portal to portal throughout Main Street Usa, including in a shop and the train station,  switching off from our spells and eventually we defeated Cruella. Our next mission was in Fantasyland if we chose to accept it.

We never did find the time on the trip to continue to Fantasyland and find out who our next Villain would be but we did enjoy the adventure. We also loved the cards, which we found out you could come back every day of your trip and get a new pack, which we did on most days, makes for a fun souvenir.

There are two places in the Magic Kingdom to join the fight, behind the Christmas shoppe like we did and the Fire station in Main Street USA, hope you check it out when you are at the park.

    I just wanted to add that according to a few people we talked to about the sorcerers cards, they said that there were about 78 total and you can now buy cards you are missing in one of the shops there.
