Trip Report Tuesday - WDW Day 5 {Part One}

Hello, friends!  Welcome to the first Trip Report Tuesday post of 2016!  I've decided to break day five into two parts, keeping it simple and sweet for you all.  Ready for a Disney fix?  Let's get right to the magic then!

Day 5 - Tuesday, October 20, 2015  //  Part One

This was one of my favorite mornings!  The girls slept in a bit and my parents enjoyed a laid back morning in our villa.  Meanwhile, Jason and I went on a breakfast date at Boma!  It was so nice to simply head downstairs to one of our favorite restaurants and enjoy some sweet one on one time over such treats as Simba waffles and french toast bread pudding!  YUM!

After breakfast we decided to take a stroll over to Animal Kingdom Lodge's Kidani Village to explore it a bit.

We took in the beauty of the lobby, browsed through the gift shop, then enjoyed a nice walk and talk on the way back to the Jambo House.  I relished every magnificent moment of this morning out with my man!

Animal Kingdom Lodge's Jambo House lobby is awe-inspiring!  We loved crossing this gorgeous bridge every time we made our way to and from our room!

Tooth Fairy Surprise with a Pinch of Pixie Dust

Little One woke up just before we returned and was more than ready to see what the Tooth Fairy had left her!  (If you missed the last trip report, you can read about her leaving Epcot one tooth lighter here.)  The night before she speculated that perhaps Tinkerbell would come instead of the Tooth Fairy since we were at Disney World.  Judging from the fun surprise she received I think she may have been right! ;)

Resort  R & R

I'm so glad that we kept the morning and early afternoon free on this particular day to enjoy time together at our home resort, Animal Kingdom Lodge.  It was a refreshing and memorable part of the vacation.  

We lounged on our private balcony and took in the "wild" view...

Then we soaked up that glorious golden Florida sunshine at the pool!  Sunning, swimming, and water sliding works up in appetite which led to our in-room pizza party.

(Yes, our villa was fully stocked with real plates.  That didn't stop me from packing my own Halloween ones though!  They helped set the mood for what was to come that evening...)

After lunch we pulled out some cute costumes and headed to our favorite Disney World hard ticket event, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

 Hope you'll be back next Tuesday to see the festive fun we enjoyed that evening at Magic Kingdom!

Don't forget that you can also watch fun footage of our Disney days on my family's YouTube channel, Eat, Sleep, Dis, Repeat!  My husband Jason publishes a new video each Sunday, so be sure to click that "subscribe" button while there to catch future vids!

I appreciate each comment, & "like"! They let me know that you enjoyed what you read, which makes it worth sharing! ;)   


  1. The view from your room is amazing!! You are making me sooo excited to be at Disney World in just over a month!!! I love your breakfast date idea - so fun :)

  2. Yes, yes, YES! Okay, first of all--I have a thing for bridges! I LOVE admiring them....usually from afar! ;) Some bridges scare me, but I really do love the architecture of bridges! THAT bridge is incredible! <3 One of my favorite things about your trips is that you are able to make time with one another--you and your hubby or one on one time with the kiddos. A breakfast date looks like a great time! And what a TREAT to lose a tooth at Disney World! ;) And pizza....of COURSE! The fact that you took your own Halloween plates does not surprise me and just makes me adore your thoughtfulness to detail even more! Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. I LOVE Disney!! I can't wait until I get to go back! Always so much to see and such a happy place :)

  4. Even though we live locally, we always talk about going to one of the Animal Kingdom resorts. So beautiful!

  5. What a fun trip! I love all the fun pictures- it looks like it was a great family bonding time.

  6. I just LOVE Disney posts! We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, too and I loved the view of the animals from our balcony. I wish we had walked around on the grounds more like you did! We ate dinner at their buffet restaurant, I can't think of the name off the top of my head- but, it was SO good!


  7. those pizzas look so yummy!! what an awesome time you had!

  8. Animal Kingdom Lodge wouldn't have been on my list of places to stay or even check out...but you've changed my mind! What a fun place to stay! That view. Wow! Your food looks amazing, and it makes me miss Disney so much. Every time we've eaten out since our Disney trip, I'm underwhelmed at the menu options. Nobody makes food taste as good as Disney! Ha! :)

  9. Boma looked so delicious! And your resort - amazing! Greatest tooth fairy treat ever - love it!
