Stephanie's Birthday at Disney...continued

When we came back to our room on Saturday night we found that Mickey had been to our room and left a little birthday party with a cake replica of himself. Can't imagine how Mickey found out it was Stephanie's birthday, can you Anita?

In the afternoon when it was too hot to be at the parks we enjoyed the pool and water slides at the hotel. Tanek would be happy staying there all day. The slides were a lot of fun and I enjoyed them as much as Tanek did.
What a great pool this was. Water falls, and slides and just huge.

Oh it was so nice to have our room to come back to in the afternoon to just chill out before we began the evening.

As you can see, some like to read, someone else would rather be taking pictures instead of reading. Can you guess who?

This was at Mickey Mouse Clubhouse at Hollywood Studio's. We always go there and it is one of Tanek's favorite places to go.

I am not sure how I caught this face, because he certainly wasn't sad while he was here. He doesn't look very happy here, and I have no idea what was going on because he was very excited to be here.

Waiting for Mickey and his friends to come out in the clubhouse.

Sunday night we went to the Crystal Palace for dinner with Winnie the Pooh and his gang. This was a very nice place to have dinner. We were very lucky to get a reservation on the day of, and when we got there they did not have us down for a reservation. However, Anita worked her magic and we not only got in we got in ahead of everyone else that was waiting. We really did have a reservation, they just didn't know it. God really blessed us this whole day. Besides getting in this very busy place that was booked solid for 3 weeks we got this wonderful pass thanks again to Anita that got us in the front of the lines for all the rides. I kept telling them people were wondering who we were and that we must be very special because they kept taking us up to the front of the line. I guess they knew we were special and it was Stephanie's birthday:) Tanek was thrilled to have dinner with all the Winnie the Pooh friends. He has a big smile for Piglet.
He has ice cream with sprinkles on it for dessert.

A visit from Tigger

And of course Pooh. What a great time we had. And when the fireworks started we were right there to get a front row view. We just walked out on the porch and watched the fireworks. Then came back in for dessert. Such a great time. And something we had never done before. I highly recommend the Crystal Palace. It is beautiful. But....very cold inside. Tanek got to have lunch and then dinner with all his favorite characters.

And it wouldn't be complete without Eyore. Eyore was his usual happy self. After diner we enjoyed the after hours at the Kingdom. Great place to celebrate a birthday and we do have a couple more birthdays coming up.
