December '14 Walt Disney World Trip Report: Part 2

by Nick

Sunday, December 7th

After such a jam packed first day, we all slept in. We had made an ADR for breakfast at Whispering Canyon Cafe, the sit down restaurant located off of the main lobby of the Wilderness Lodge, the previous day.

Barbie and I were giving this restaurant another shot after a not so great experience on our last stay at the Lodge in 2011. Whispering Canyon has a reputation of being fun, along the lines of 50s Prime Time at Disney's Hollywood Studios, but on that first visit our service was very lackluster, with zero energy from our server.

This trip we had the good fortune of having Jeff as a server. He was a lot of fun, and spent a lot of time joking with us as well as having a real conversation.

The food was great, with everything being delicious. The bacon was not the standard flimsy bacon found at other establishments on Disney property.

We'd all chosen the "All You Care to Eat Breakfast Skillet" pictured above, and we all did eat all we cared to, and then some.
After this stuffing, we all retired to our rooms for naps!

Barbie and I got up a couple of hours later, and dressed and made our way down to the main lobby to enjoy the decorations and get photos while we waited for our friend Nicole, who stayed for 3 nights with Josh and Jill, to arrive.

After Nicole arrived, we departed for Disney's Hollwood Studios.

We had reservations for the Frozen Holiday Premium Package, which I wrote about in greater detail here.

We checked in, got our lanyard and pass for the party, and headed to Rock n' Roller Coaster.

We then headed to For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration. If you are a fan of Frozen, this is a must do.

Afterwards we visited Wandering Oaken's Trading Post, the Frozen themed gift shop located in the back of the park, off Streets of America.

Just as The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights began, we happened to be right next to the area where Santa Goofy comes out for photos with guests, and lucked out, as the line can be extremely long.

The Frozen themed dessert party took place at the end of Streets of America, with a terrific view of the Osborne Lights.

We stayed until the end of the party, at 830pm, and then meandered our way back to the front of the park, stopping for PhotoPass pics along the way.
