Cold Front Come early - Chapter 11

We woke up to a chilly cabin. Turned on the news and discovered the cold front they were expecting by the weekend had blown through early. It was a whopping 34 degrees outside. I was so not happy, from the news report - it seemed we had missed any chance of getting the girls into the pool this trip. Plus based on Accuweather, I had packed for lower temps - but not this low.

We had a late breakfast booked at 1900 PF, then a free morning - later we have Bierngarten booked. We had been debating canceling Bierngarten in order to still get the campfire in. But in light of the cold front, we decided to skip the campfire this year.

So, we were on that boat (brrrrrrr) across the lake to the Contemporary - the girls watched as a bird dove for it's breakfast - fascinated. . .

Then we caught the monorail to GF. Here is John trying to pose like Anastacia Photobucket

The girls remembered sliding down the stairs and asked to do it again. So we checked out making sure they would not bump anyone - and let them go. . . .

We had time to kill until our names were called for our ADRs, so we went to check out the Gingerbread House Photobucket Photobucket

We had the usual character visits - Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

We ate breakfast, the girls both got birthday cupcakes. . while we waited to see Alice. Photobucket

Tigger came around a 2nd time Photobucket

There were several tables besides ours just waiting for Alice to make it over to us. . . Finally. . . Photobucket

With breakfast out of the way - we had no real plans at the moment. The pool had been nixed, we did shopping at DTD yesterday. So I suggested DTD for Tangled or Minature Golf. John said he was tired & the girls wanted to play with the toys they already bought. So we went back to the cabin. John laid down and the girls played quietly, while I watched tv.

Later when I checked on the M&Ms they were both zonked out. . .Mickie was still sitting up with toys in her hands. They were worn out. Although I had wanted to get to Epcot early enough to see the Story Tellers or the country entertainers - I let them all sleep until it ws time to get ready for dinner.

When we got to Epcot it was already getting dark. We stopped as John wanted to buy some mouse ears for the man who sold him his truck. The girls both bought ears with the princess ribbons/veils while we were there.

Epcot was very pretty lit up at night Photobucket Photobucket

I had planned for us to take a right at the lake, to work our way counter clockwise

Burrrr...sounds like a cold start to your day!! Breakfast looked great and dinner looked fun too. So, Duffy is the new man of the moment huh? He is cute and cuddly (but I still don't see why we need him in the house of MOUSE ;).

How funny, I had to go back and look and you're right they did switch jackets.

That dinner at Biergarten sounds really fun. Is it outdoors or does it just look like that? I think my family would enjoy that. Hannah doesn't like sitting with strangers but after the first little bit, she'd be fine. I love that they told the Christmas Story.

Biergarten is indoors - it is made to look like you are outdoors in a German town.

I figured it was indoors and just looked that way but I never went inside any of the buildings in that area except the one selling Christmas ornaments. So glad it was fun.

This seems like a great day, a fun beginning and a wonderful (if chilly) evening.

In peace,
Max
