Ethan's First Trip to Walt Disney World: Back to the Magic Kingdom

The cast members at the Polynesian made us feel right at home
On our fifth day, we planned to go to the Magic Kingdom.  As I mentioned, none of us wanted to brave the awful Disney Magic Kingdom Transportation system again, so dad drove us to the Polynesian for a delicious breakfast of Tonga Toast and then we caught the monorail to the Magic Kingdom (much nicer than a bus!).

First ride on the monorail

We headed back for Fantasyland and watched Mickey's Philharmagic while Ethan slept and then rode the carousel, Small World, Peter Pan's Flight, and the Enchanted Tiki Room.

Mouse ears!

Mesmerized by "It's a Small World"
There's even a New Zealand part on Small World...with a Kiwi!

By the time we were finished, we were hungry and took the monorail over to the Contemporary Cafe for a delicious and relaxing late lunch.  From there, we went back to the Polynesian and our hotel to get ready for our early dinner at Cape May Cafe.

The Clam Bake Buffet at Cape May Cafe was wonderful.  Very good food with great variety.  We took longer to eat than we expected and by the time we finished, we only had about an hour before the Main Street Electrical Parade started.  I had to feed Ethan and get him to sleep before we left and even if we drove, I'm not sure we would have made it in time to watch the parade so we decided to save it until our next trip, when hopefully Ethan can stay up to watch it too.

Mom and dad went to walk around the Boardwalk and when they got back, Cayne and I went for a nice evening swim in Stormalong Bay.
