Magic Kingdom

We slept in leaving the villa at 9am. It was nice to take advantage of the short walk from BLT to Magic Kingdom. The new fast pass system also minimised any FOMO feelings from missing rope drop. Today was a day to hit the rides for the littlies and to tick off a few essentials like Dole Whip and Big Thunder Railroad.

We had been looking forward to trying Jungle Navigation Canteen which seems to polarise people on-line. We loved it. The setting was fun and the waiter was hilarious with a playful mix of silliness and sarcasm. Most importantly, the food was very good. The whole fish was a bit dry, but all the others were great.

The drinks were nice and a hit but just a touch too sweet

Noodle salad

Disney's version of Thai Beef Salad

One of the nicest desserts at the Disney restaurants! Unexpected
A slow pace day meant more time for shopping and snacks - and even a nap!
We finished the day with our much anticipated visit to Victoria and Albert's. It was certainly high end with compulsory jackets and the obligatory harpist and a 10 course paired degustation menu to match. It was lovely and certainly a treat, but if one wanted to be picky (which one certainly can be with a hefty price tag) then perhaps it lacked a bit of the creativity and playfulness that you may see in other high end joints. It is definitely worth doing for a special occasion or simply to try, but once is probably enough. The little Disney touches were really appreciated with exceptional service and complementary chocolates and roses.

Beautifully prepared and presented dishes
A surprisingly light and elegant dessert. Apple mouse shaped like an apple paired with the most delicious and unusual sour cream ice cream!
