No More Swimmin' Swimmin' Swimmin'

I must be getting old. By now, reserves were at an absolute low. The mind was willing but the body was struggling! However, we did make it to our early morning character breakfast at Tusker House at Animal Kingdom. It was perhaps a blessing in disguise that Typhoon Lagoon was closed today because of the cold weather. Even though missing out on our planned water park day did cause much disappointment for Malcolm as well as some complicated rearrangement of fastpasses and dining reservations, it did give us a chance to slow down and rest.

Tusker House didn't disappoint. It remained one of our favourite restaurants at Walt Disney World with tasty and varied breakfast offerings. Mickey, Donald, Daisy and Goofy in their safari outfits were always good value as well! It was so nice to see the young and the old enjoying the character interaction.

The group split up after breakfast with half powering on in the park and the other heading back to the resort for some much needed R&R. This was Malcolm's chance to ride Flight of Passage and I believe he approved of the ride. We too headed home after this for a nap. Malcolm kindly ordered pizza delivery to the family back at our villa. Despite the frigidly unseasonable cold weather, some opted to swim...much to Jonah's delight it was a personalised Disney trivia at the pool. He was the only one in the pool and thus the only one answering the questions. It was enough to make his day!

My mother had been an absolute trooper so far and so I accompanied her to do some shopping on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom as a treat. The time went by quickly when one was perusing merchandise! It was soon time to head across the lake to Fort Wilderness for the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue. What would be better than ribs, fried chicken and good old musical comedic fun? We were treated with a singing ferry boat captain on our ride back to the Contemporary. And with that, we ended yet another magical day here at Walt Disney World.
