This was my last full day on the trip so I was spending the full day at the Magic Kingdom. I had a quick breakfast at the hotel before grabbing the bus to the park.
This morning I was doing a somewhat new experience called “Capture Your Moment.” The experience is 20 minutes with a Disney Photo Pass photographer all to yourself. Because I have Memory Maker for free as a perk for having an annual pass, I would then have digital copies of all of the photos. I had decided to bring all of my Dopey medals and use this as an opportunity to get castle pictures with my medals.
Because all the medals are heavy, I knew I didn’t want to carry them around all day. So another first for me – I rented a locker. It was $10 for the day and well worth it.
I went to the check in desk for my photo experience and had a few minutes to discuss with the photographer what I was celebrating and what photos I was looking for. I told her that my only “must do” was a photo with all 6 of my medals and then I was open to anything.
As part of the experience, you have two photo pass photographers with you. One takes all the photos and the other acts as assistant. The assistant will hold your personal items and helps move other guests out of your shot. The assistant also prevents other guests from lining up thinking it would be their turn next… which happened a few times.
I really loved the whole experience and I was so happy to see the photos. These are just a handful of them:
After I finished taking the photos, I made a stop back to the locker to stow all the medals. Then I was on a mission to get on of my favorite snacks – a cream cheese pretzel. These can be hard to find so I was happy to read that they were available in Tomorrowland. They are simply a soft pretzel with cream cheese inside but I love them
The rest of the day was walking around and rides. I did several of the attractions that I hadn’t gotten to this trip and did a little shopping.
At one point, I found a seat in front of the train station. This is a great spot to sit and catch the character greetings and cavalcades. In just 45 minutes, I saw several sets of characters, two cavalcades and a set by the Dapper Dans.
I had a dinner reservation at Tony’s Town Square. Tony’s does not get a lot of love when you read reviews online. I haven’t eaten there since our honeymoon which was almost 15 years ago. So I decided to give it a try.
I had a great table where I could people watch on Main Street. The meal started with some bread and olive oil. Then I chose the sampler option. It was a small portion of spaghetti with one meatball, a small portion of fettuccine alfredo and half of a piece of chicken parm. With the exception of the meatball being a little spicy, I enjoyed all of it. My favorite was the fettuccine. For dessert, I ordered chocolate gelato. Can’t really go wrong there.
I ended my day after dinner. It was time to go back to the room and pack up for check out the next day.
