Departure Day – Breakfast with Lilo and Stitch

Our own hotel, the Polynesian, offers a character breakfast at ‘Ohana with Lilo and Stitch, the stars of the movie by the same name. It’s the most non-sensical story involving a little Hawaiian girl, Lilo, and her alien buddy, Stitch. The only reservation we could get was at 8:10am, which suited us fine since our flight was at 2:55pm and we promised the kids one more quick dip in the pool.

The breakfast was served family-style: a giant metal platter of standard scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and roasted potato wedges; a dish of fresh fruit and dip; all the Mickey-shaped waffles you can eat; and a refreshing orange-passionfruit-mango juice.

What we were really paying for: the chance to meet Lilo & Stitch.

Magnus will try anything. He’s a good eater and filled his plate with eggs, sausage, waffles and fruit.

The ubiquitous Mickey-shaped waffles. Nearly every Disney restaurant offers them.

Bonus surprise! Mickey was also in the house.

My kids are not joiners. So I was surprised when they grabbed maracas and joined the singing and dancing parade that Lilo led around the restaurant.

Magnus has a stuffed Stitch so meeting the real Stitch was quite a thrill.

A quick monorail ride up to the Grand Floridian’s nice gift shop for some gifts to bring home.

One more quick trip to the pool with Barrak while I packed.

These ‘autograph books’ are sold all over Disney World. At first, I thought they were cheesy. But you soon find that every other kid has them, and every character kind of expects it. They ended up being a great little keepsake for the kids to look back at. And it gives everyone something to do besides stare at each other and hug.
