He really likes getting to ride the coasters twice. Luke requested The Edison for this trip after he saw they have a burger of the month.

We've haven't booked yet, so I'm hoping we don't run into problems.

Wandering does seem to be our usual touring method at DHS. I keep wondering what the opening of Galaxy's Edge is going to do to how we tour here.

Thank you for that info! Luke has thought when he looked at the DVC website that we shouldn't have any problems.

We talked about Hawaii for a number of years, even before Aulani. But having DVC here makes it even better for us.

DAY SEVEN – Sunday, October 14

We will return today to Magic Kingdom. Today is a Mickey’s Not So Scary Party Night so park hours are 9 AM to 6 PM. We are not attending a party this year, but it does affect how long we have to tour today. Our FastPasses today begin mid-morning so we’ll have plenty of time for breakfast at Main Street Bakery/Starbucks. FastPass #1 is Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at 10:30 followed by #2 on Jungle Cruise at 11:45. Then we have a break for some lunch before #3 for Space Mountain at 1:45. I don’t ride Space Mountain any longer so this will be another back to back for Luke. I’m sure once he enters the FastPass queue for his second ride on the mountain, I’ll be busy seeking FP#4.

Dinner tonight is just a monorail ride away. We’ll be heading to the Polynesian for our first ever supper at ‘Ohana. We’ve talked about it and enjoyed reading others reviews of this dinner, but we always ended up at other places. Does anyone know if you can see the Hallowishes fireworks from the beach here? Or can the fireworks be seen from the restaurant itself? Can’t you tell we’ve never eaten here at night. We stayed here a few years ago, and you may remember from my trip report that we watched Wishes from our studio balcony almost every night. But we’ve not been back since all the construction is finally done. We will probably explore this resort a little before dinner which is reserved for 7:00 PM.

NEXT: DAY EIGHT

Countdown to Disney Time = 15 Days Until F&WF 7.0

OLD PHOTOS: A photo of Stefanie dressed as Tinker Bell popped up on my Facebook feed this morning. So for this update I've traveled back to October 2009 for our first October trip when Stefanie got to enjoy Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.

We met the Incredibles again.


Meeting Buzz and Woody was a must-do and highlight of each trip.


Beginning with our first trip in 1997, each year Stefanie and I would pose while Luke took our photo in Minnie's wicker chair on her back porch. And now there is sadly no ToonTown.


And here is the photo that appeared on Facebook today. At this point in our trip which was a business trip for Luke, we were staying at the Gaylord Palms where the conference was held.



We got very lucky in meeting all seven dwarfs. This party night was not crowded at all and we even arrived at the Hub about 10 minutes before Hallowishes and still got seats on the curb. I wish the crowds were small still.



About 11:50 we turned into ToonTown to meet Minnie and Mickey. We were surprised when the Mad Hatter walked right up to us. We were the last family let back to meet the famous mice.


Finally, from one Tinker Bell to another. Stefanie and I spent a little time in the parks without Luke each day as he went to sessions. This was a surprise for him.

Nice day for the MK! Don't blame you for not doing MNSSHP as it's gotten so expensive! I've been to 'Ohana once when I stayed at the Poly back in 2009. I really enjoyed it. One of my faves from the meal was actually the salad as the honey/lime vinaigrette is to die for! My whole meal was good and there is some activities with the kids during the meal but not a problem. The show kitchen is quite something.



I'm not sure if you can see the fireworks from 'Ohana but I recall watching them from the Poly beach at least once and seemed to have a good view if I recall.

We've had breakfast a number of times at 'Ohana, but never dinner, so we're excited.
