After resting up we headed back to Magic Kingdom for an action packed evening. To start the 2nd half of “The Princess Day That Wasn’t” we had reservations at a brand new restaurant that I was over the moon to be trying, Be Our Guest.
Now, for my “non-Disneyworld vacationing friends” reservations to Be Our Guest are impossible to get. You literally have to be on the phone the minute your 180 day booking window opens (as I was). Even then, I still couldn’t snag a prime time dinner reservation, and we ended up with a 4:50 p.m. dinner.
It did not disappoint. The restaurant is themed after Beast’s Castle and even includes a welcome by The Master himself. Everything about it was spectacular!
That evening we were also slated to do the “Wishes Dessert Party”. We couldn’t head over for seating until around 9:00 so we decided to kill some time checking out “New Fantasyland”.
We played with “Stitch” and Pop-Pop:
And finally, we went to the Wishes Dessert Party. This was one of the highlights of our trip and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone. It was actually very reasonably priced (not even just for Disney). I think we paid $25 per adult for reserved premium view seating for Wishes Fireworks Nighttime Spectacular and an all you can eat dessert and beverage buffet which was delicious and never-ending!
I’m sure this will surprise you, but after watching Wishes withe E, I swelled up with tears a bit. The last time we had watched Wishes was on our Honeymoon where I could only dream of being back at Walt Disney World with our child(ren) to share the experience, and here we were, watching it with our beautiful, brilliant, strong willed, amazing daughter. It was a very real reminder of how blessed we truly are.
After Wishes ended we headed back to our hotel. I had cancelled our breakfast reservation for the next morning and was looking forward to an alarm free slumber bliss.
