Day 13 - Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Princess Storybook Dining Time!
Breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, Norway Pavilion, EPCOT

Dining with Royalty

The platter shown in the photo on the middle left is brought to the table, served family style.  Guests are also invited to help themselves to a buffet of yumminess as well!

Disney Princess Procession 
The Disney Princesses invite their lit'l guests to join them in parading around the restaurant, waving at the adoring audience of those dining throughout Akershus.

Little One following Princess Aurora (her favorite Disney Princess) during the Princess Procession!

Would you like to read more about WDW's character dining options?  See my blog post, "Choosing the Perfect Disney Character Meal for Your Family".  You'll hear about each of the character meals offered throughout WDW, and will also find a comparison of Akershus' Princess Storybook Dining and the ever popular character meal offered at Cinderella's Royal Table (located inside Cinderella Castle).  

Enjoying Norway
We love EPCOT's Norway Pavilion!  Riding Maelstrom is a MUST for us!!

Food & Wine Festival

The Kalua Pork Slider was my favorite eat of Food & Wine 2013! SO GOOD!  Jason can't resist creme brûlée and was excited to share, giving Little One her first taste of it.  She LOVED it too!

Chase Lounge
During the Food and Wine Festival, Disney Visa Chase cardholders were offered exclusive assess to the Chase Lounge in the third floor of the America Pavilion's building.  Here we were offered free beverages and a comfortable air conditioned place to recline and recharge - ourselves and our phones/electronics!  

Matsuriza, the Taiko Drummers
Japan Pavilion, EPCOT
These talented performs are some of our favorites in World Showcase!

Hooray for Hollywood {Studios} Time!

PhotoPass Fun with Mike Wazowski!

Dinner at Pizza Planet, Hollywood Studios

The food here is nothing special, but since the restaurant is straight out of  "Toy Story" it's one of our girls' favorite places to grab a quick service meal in Hollywood Studios.

Studio Backlot Tour

One trip Jason volunteered to be in the "Harbor Attack" show at the start of the tour.  He was given the coveted role of the person who answers the phone and has tons of water dumped on them! HA! This trip, we were just observers of magic. ;)

One Man's Dream
We don't just love Disney's theme parks, we adore Disney history, so we throughly enjoy our visits to One Man's Dream!

Tatooine Traders
Jason has definitely passed on his love of Star Wars to our kiddos!  See my Disney World Souvenir Haul post to find out which of these goodies came home with us this trip! 

Girls Night in Hollywood!
Little One and I stayed at the Park for another hour or so after Jason and Princess headed back to the resort.  It was great fun to shop and enjoy some one on one time with my littlest sweetie!

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Here's a sneak peek at what's to come next Trip Report Tuesday!

  1. The breakfast at Akershus looks SO yummy! We enjoyed dinner there with the princesses and the DELICIOUS Rice Cream! :) Creme brulee is a BIG fave at our house--good choice! I absolutely love how you and Jason take one on one time with your girls! While I know it's special for you two, it's got to be SUPER special for those sweet girls! They're blessed to have awesome parents like you and Jason! :) Thanks for sharing these great photos of my favorite place! <3

  2. You know my love for Creme Brulee!! I'm so glad your little one liked it :) That princess dining looks like so much fun!!

  3. I like that Monsters University backdrop! And love all the Star Wars hats!

  4. Looking at the food, breakfast with the Princesses and at Pizza Planet is making me hungry. When we got a chace to ride it, the back lot tour ride is another favorite. Also love the collection of Star Wars hats.

  5. Love how you both take time to spend with the girls alone...they will definitely remember that
