Over the weekend, we celebrated my daughter’s birthday at the Magic Kingdom, which is our annual trip to Disney World!
Yes, I was so nervous going to Disney World again during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic because of knowledge of the variants are keeping me busy at work and Little Miss’ age group hasn’t been approved for vaccination yet.
But we did our best again this year- we wore masks in crowded areas and during indoor rides, wiped down our hands & arms after every indoor ride and before/after meals, and social distanced when we could. Also, my husband and I are fully vaccinated and boosted!
I also noticed that Disney took precautions as well. I observed that the Disney Cast Members made sure everyone wore a mask in the indoor rides (they wouldn’t let the boats continue the ride if people were not wearing their masks). Also, the number of people were limited in crowded areas (i.e. the stretching room at the Haunted Mansion). We were still able to ride all our favorite Disney rides!
This year, we enjoyed a delicious Italian lunch at Tony’s Town Square. We were seated outside and we were able to enjoy the passing parades while we ate, and waved back at the Disney characters at the nearby balcony.
The chef came out to take my daughter’s allergy-friendly order: spaghetti and turkey meatballs with a side of broccolini.
The chef also brought us some allergy-friendly bread (see above left plate) with our not-allergy-friendly bread (on right).
My husband and I enjoyed an appetizer of fried mozzarella (and beer), a tasty Tour of Italy trio platter, and a yummy sausage pizza.
And the chef offered Little Miss a bowl of yummy chocolate Tofutti ice cream for dessert.
Overall, dining at this Disney restaurant was magical! The food was delicious and we had perfect outdoor seats.
Afterwards, we went next door to visit Mickey at his Meet & Greet in Town Square.
We had another magical time celebrating Little Miss’s birthday at Disney World this year!
