Disney Weekend Recap in Pictures, Of Course

Posted by CheapRunnerMike

Hey's your photo update on our Disney trip from this weekend. Saturday was a rainy day at Epcot while Sunday the weather was gorgeous and we spent our day at Hollywood Studios.

Family photo op with the Mouse

I think I ended up being the kids' favourite ride at Epcot


We found a new to us spot at Epcot, Coca Cola's Club Cool. It is a self serve soda station featuring sodas from around the world. Jackson probably downed a dozen cups and his favourite was a raspberry cream soda from Zimbabwe called Sparberry while Michelle fell in love with Bilbo, a fruit-flavoured lime juice from South Africa. Can you guess what colour Jackson's Sparberry was??

Dinner Saturday was at one of our absolute favourite restaurants at Disney, 'Ohana. It is a Hawaiian family-style restaurant that is similar to a Brazilian steakhouse where servers come to your table with huge skewers of meat. There was pork, steak, chicken and shrimp and all were excellent. The sides are great too -- pot stickers, salad, noodles and chicken wings. There are even hula lessons and coconut races for the kids.

Sunday was our day at Hollywood Studios, a park that we have grown to like more and more through the years we have been coming to Disney.

Our Toy Story freak got to meet his heroes...we asked Woody if he wanted to come swimming back at the hotel to which he started to "swim" with Jackson.

You know we had to catch Muppetvision 3D...who doesn't love the Muppets?

This is the closest we want to come to snow for a while...

And this totally happened...cupcake showdown, the Red Velvet on the left versus the Butterfingers on the right. RV took this this round at Starring Rolls Café.

We capped off the night by watching the dancing Christmas lights on the Streets of America. Millions of Christmas lights set to music. Check out the video to get just a little bit of an idea how epic this is...

We are heading back to the Magic Kingdom again today, the park is open until midnight so it is going to be a long one. The weather looks good so we should have lots of fun in store. You can follow us throughout the day on Instagram for picture updates.

Now go have yourself a magical day!
