I love being an annual passholder ~30 minutes from Disney for a million reasons, but my favorite is how often we go in for quick 2-3 hour visits. In the mood for a parade? We can take a jaunt to Magic Kingdom after lunch and be home before dinner. Nothing to eat in the pantry? Let’s go grab lunch in Morrocco and check out the new railings while we’re at it. Twitter is blowing up because a *quick service* window, Aunt Polly’s on Tom Sawyer Island, is open TODAY for the first time since I can remember? Don’t mind if I do!
When I was a kid I remember having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich from Aunt Polly’s and it was a m a z i n g . I went about a decade without visiting Tom Sawyer’s Island, but now that our nephews Hallpants and Henry visit so often and need room to explore, we’ve been quite a few times this year. Everytime we go, I see the empty seating outside a closed Aunt Polly’s and think of how we should bring a picnic lunch and eat on the water. It has such a great view of Cinderella Castle, the Mark Twain Riverboat, and Haunted Mansion that it really is such a shame these tables are empty 95% of the year!
Annnnnnyway, when I caught wind Aunt Polly’s was open for the day, we had to go check it out- And drag our pals Tim and John along with us! :)
Yes, it’s pretty much just overpriced Uncrustables and bags of chips, but I loved my lemonade! :)
We just made it in time for closing!
What to do after a snack at Aunt Polly’s? Ride on the Mark Twain Riverboat, of course! I love short park days that involve doing attractions that we normally walk past. :)
Aunt Polly’s from the boat:
I love the view the Mark Twain gives you of Frontierland.
The end- Another Disney adventure in the books! :)
