We arrived in Orlando around lunchtime, so we stopped at Tropical Smoothie Café to do a little toddler tricking. We ordered Maddux an Island Green smoothie with no sugar. He totally thought it was a special treat even though he basically ate a salad for lunch. Score. And, yes, he’s in his pajamas. We ball hard.
When we got to the hotel, Maddux took a nap and I took a break for a twenty minute workout. After sitting in the car last night and this morning, I wanted to actually move around for a minute or two.
It was harder than I thought it would be. I think I say that about every single workout, though. Whoops. Guess I don’t know my own (lack of) strength.
After everyone got cleaned up for dinner, we headed to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort for the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue. We chose this restaurant for three reasons: 1.) I love musical theater stuff 2.) Maddux loves crowds and excitement and 3.) Ryne loves all you can eat dinners. How could we not eat there?
We made reservations sometime last week, so we just had to snag our tickets at the Fort Wilderness Resort before heading in. The show and food are both western-themed, with everything taking place in the Pioneer Hall. It was actually really cute.
Salads came out right away. The show started pretty soon after that. It was seriously the most adorable little show we could have hoped for.
The actual “feast” includes fried chicken, pork ribs, salad, baked beans, cornbread, and strawberry shortcake.
I wasn’t really in to much of that stuff. I mean, except the strawberry shortcake. Gimme all of that.
Anyway, they were really accommodating and brought me pasta primavera instead. I called ahead just to make sure, but it seemed like it wasn’t a huge deal to make some swaps.
Tickets also include unlimited beer, wine, and sangria. So, I guess your frontier party could get as wild as you wanted it to? Kidding. But I appreciate the gesture Disney.
While the food was good, the show was great. Maddux loved the music, dancing, and actors. Especially his mom, ‘cause she killed it. Yeah. I got to go on stage and dance. And then I even got to say a sweet pun about bears. It was legit and Maddux will never remember it. Oh well.
For $65 a person, I thought this whole thing was extremely reasonable and worthwhile. Kids under three are free, so that helps ease the sting. But really, we would definitely come back to this show in the future. But right now, it’s time to relax in the room and rest up for tomorrow. We’re going to the Magic Kingdom and I cannot freaking wait!
