Day two of our trip started off with lots of anticipation and excitement. My brother, sister in law and their 3 boys had arrived from Boston and were right next door us in the hotel. The kids woke up early and played, while we got ready for breakfast. We had a reservation at Chef Mickey’s located in the beautiful Polynesian Resort. It is the only breakfast that has all the characters, and the kids had a blast taking pictures with and meeting all the different friends. The food was normal breakfast buffet food, nothing great but not terrible. For the high price ($50 per adult) you really are paying for the experience versus the food and it doesn’t fail to disappoint.
After breakfast, we milled around the Polynesian, browsing through the boutiques and wandering around the beautiful resort. We headed back to the hotel after a bit and spent the afternoon relaxing by the pool.
For dinner, we had a reservation at Sanaa, located at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. It is our favorite restaurant in Disney World and we visit each time we come. Not only is the food amazing (you must order their famous Indian bread sampler), you get to watch wild safari animals roam the preserve while you enjoy your food. After dinner we roamed around the outdoor viewing area and then headed back to the hotel.
I took my exhausted boys back to the hotel room for bed while the family took a stroll through Disney Springs. When everyone returned, my husband and I headed down to the lobby. We relaxed at the lobby bar and had a cocktail, chatting with the bartenders and fellow patrons. There was a conference going on so the lobby was quite busy. We enjoyed ourselves for an hour or so before heading back to the room for the night.
