We tried to follow the advice we’ve heard for years (but just couldn’t bring ourselves to follow when we went to Disney as newlyweds) and hit the parks early so we could take a break at the resort in the heat of the afternoon.
Just before leaving Magic Kingdom on our first day there, we stopped for snacks at Auntie Gravity’s Ice Cream Parlor in Tomorrowland to use Snack Credits from our Disney Counter/Quick Service Dining Plan.
Both boys got hot fudge sundaes.
My daughter ordered a soft-serve waffle cone (only slightly less-messy than her snack the night before).
I got a fantabulous-could-have-downed-three-of-them-in-that-heat strawberry-banana smoothie.
Notice how (except for the sundae) the pictures are getting slightly better.
Only the whipped cream has already been licked off of the sundae.
Hubby, not-yet-convinced that our snack credits were going to last the entire trip, didn’t get anything.
Read to the end, and you’ll see how his mind changed about that.
He did, however, help out by licking the drips off of our 5yo’s cone.
He’s sweet like that.
