Our last minute Disney weekend

So my very sweet hubby surprised me with a Disney weekend for my birthday muchlove I thought we were going to Tampa but nope, once we were on the road he told me where we were really going yay I thought we were done with our Disney weekends until September so I am so excited!

We are at Animal Kingdom right now. So far we've done some pin trading, checked out the new Harambe Market and we've ridden EE twice! Next up is Finding Nemo. Tonight we are going to graze our way around the WS and ride Test Track.

Tomorrow is MK and I was even able to snag a BOG lunch reservation!

Here are a few pictures of the new Harambe Market

If anyone uses the DAS card they have just changed the system to Magic Bands and MDE only. No more paper card. We've used it and it is so much more convenient!

Our second stop was karamel kuche in Germany. OMG do I love this place. I got a milk chocolate caramel with sea salt and DH got a regular milk chocolate caramel. After one bite he declared that if they ever start serving warm caramels he is quitting his job, we are moving to Orlando and coming to Disney everyday for a caramel. Come on warm caramels!!!! biggrin

To the moderators, in my excitement at being at WDW I accidentally opened this topic in general trip planning instead of Trip Reports. I don't know if you can, or want to move it to TR, but feel free and sorry!

Thanks Mark! My very first live TR and I messed it up right off the bat and put it in the wrong category laugh

I hope you can pull off a surprise trip for Scrappy someday. But that amazing Grand 1 surprise you gave her is going to be pretty hard to top awesome

Lunch was delicious! It was our best meal yet at BOG. DH had the braised pork with mashed potatoes and green beans and a side of fries. I had the turkey sandwich with fries and we split a Master's cupcake for dessert. DH said the pork was melt in your mouth and he loved everything else too. I ate about half his green beans, they're so good.

My sandwich was wonderful. The baguette was so soft and fresh. There was so much turkey on the sandwich it was almost hard to eat, but don't worry I managed just fine wink

I would think after a few hours on the plane, you'd probably figure it out laugh I Figured it out about 1 1/2 hours away from Disney when we didn't take the exit we were supposed to take. I Normally hate surprises but this was an awesome surprise!
