Day 2 was all about time; veranda time, pool time, nap time, play time, campfire time, and bed time. We had no luck with the Character Breakfast at Cap May Cafe since we did not have reservations. I was able to reserve for Wednesday, so we will get to eat breakfast with Goofy and Minnie during our trip. We headed back to the Boardwalk for breakfast in the room and then we quickly changed into our suits and headed down to the scary clown pool. The water was just a bit chilly, and the little guy was shivering in no time, so the rest of the morning was spent at the playground where he was bullied by a 7 year old girl, who was as sweet as pie when I was around but she quickly changed her demeanor when I was not looking. Where do kids learn this kind of stuff so early? He got back at her by being mean to her little sister, and I only know that because the 7 year old tattled on him. Anyway, it was time for some lunch and a nap. The baby napped and I relaxed on the verandah with my frozen margarita.
With some time to kill before a delicious Home Run Inn pizza dinner in our room, we wandered over to the Community Hall. I have been a DVC member since 1999 and this was the first time I had been there. Pretty cool place, actually. If the kids are between toddler and age 12, it’s a great place to hang out. The little guy found some toys to play with; Legos, tinker toys, and a plethora of parts for Mr. Potato Head, and this weary Grandma got to sit down and watch the Disney movies that are played on their huge big screen TV. I also found out that there is a campfire every night near the pool with marshmallows. We’re in for that!
After dinner we headed to the campfire and got all sticky with marshmallow glue, but it was a lot of fun. Seashore Sweets was calling our name for ice cream cones so after a stop to watch the magicians perform tricks on the Boardwalk we indulged in big ice cream cones. The baby played “Frogger” running back and forth from our bench to the water’s edge to throw acorns to the ducks, and before you know it, bedtime was upon us. Another day over in Walt Disney World and tomorrow the fun begins with Magic Kingdom!
