Disney World Day 2: Magic Kingdom Trip -1

MagicKingdomThe second day of our trip was at the most magical place: Magic Kingdom. To begin with here is the pic of our resort: All Star Sports Resort.

AllStarSportsWe reached Magic Kingdom by 9:00 AM. We missed the welcome show :(. It was real crowded. Anyways, we were still excited, this is the first look of Town Square as we enter the Magic Kingdom.

TownSquareHere it goes, the first look of the most magnificent Castle. My dream of so many years of seeing the mesmerizing castle. I stood there frozen for few seconds.

CinderellaCastleWe entered through the Castle, and glancing over Bibbidi Bobbadi Boutique, Anna Elsa Wait Time more than 90 minutes, we hopped on to “Mad Tea Party”. Pari loved it.

Then we moved on to Tomorrowland, and got ready to ride on “Tomorrowland Speedway” (Wait time <5 minutes). Didn’t enjoy much.

Our next ride was “Dumbo the Flying Elephant” in Fantasyland. Pari Loved it. We did it again.

DumboWe then moved on to “The Barnstormer featuring Goofy as the Great Goofini”, a mini roller coaster. We enjoyed but Pari did not enjoy a little bit.

To cheer her up, Dad & Pari played and got soak in “Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station”.

Our next stop was “Pete’s Silly Sideshow” to meet Daisy & Minnie.

We then strolled to the castle, and just next to the castle, we saw Cinderella’s step sisters were there. It was a long queue. We got into the line, and got to know that Princess Tiana has meet & greet very nearby, and the wait time was pretty less. So, Pari’s Dad got in the queue, and me & Pari ran to get to meet Tiana. We were back in 10 minutes :).

Meeting with princess Tiana was good. She enjoyed the autograph book. Pari asked her about Prince Navin. She said, he will come by the evening.

Meeting step sisters was so funny. They were doing all the comedy & playing & making fun with the kids. Lady Tremaine loved Pari’s autograph book, and started telling her about their pet cat. Then, they showed their favorite dance moves. We both danced with them :). When I asked Drizella to please smile for the photograph. She said: “Oh, I can’t. It will spoil my makeup”. :)

CinderellaStepsistersNow, was the time for our fast pass at Enchanted tales with Belle. We reached on time. Kids were invited to volunteer in the play.

EnchantedTalesPari was picked up by the cast member to play Maurice’s horse. She did her job very nicely.

Pari as Maurice'shorseIn the end, they did a parade with Belle, hugged her and got the gift of a bookmark. That was the most enjoyable experience. withBelleWe came back to the castle again to find the very beautiful and the most spectacular show was going on- Dream Along with Mickey show. It was a 20-minute show with the very beautiful song- Everything is possible, Wishes do come true, you just have to believe in your dreams.

DreamAlongwithMickeyAfter this was over, another road show started “Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It! Street Party”. This show was too good. After the Cast Member’s dance performance, guests were invited to dance in the street with the performers. We got chance to dance with Genie, Phineas & Ferb, Baloo, Chip-n- Dale, Woody, King Louie, Goofy.

StreetDancePartyNearby, there was meet and greet for Princess Merida. It was a long queue, I got in the queue and Pari & Dad went out to check the nearby restaurant to find out if we could get anything vegetarian, other than salad, which Pari could eat. Meeting with Princess Merida was good, Pari got a chance to try on her hand with bow & arrow too.

MeridaNow, it was lunch time and we reached The Pinocchio Village Haus, there we could get Cheese Pizza. We had ordered Caprese Flatbread, Cheese Pizza with yoghurt, and grapes, and a Chicken burger.

LunchatMKAfter we were done with the lunch, and taking rest for a while, Pari insisted on going on a ride on ‘Prince Charming Regal Carrousel’. It’s really very big and so enjoying. A lovely, and hardly any wait must-to-do ride.

Our next stop was ‘It’s a small world’. Nice relaxing slow ride. Dad was really tired by this time, and enjoyed his short nap. Now, it was time to meet Tinkerbell using fastpass. We strolled over the Main Street, exploring all the photo sessions with the Castle, and reached Tinkerbell. It was really really awesome meet. Pari’s Dad’s favorite Disney character Tinkerbell. After Pari was done, he too went on to take his autograph. And, she happily gave him lot-n-lots of pixie dust.

We then hopped on to the Magic Kingdom Railroad at Main Street station, and got down at Frontier-land station-Splash Mountain.

On the way to Splash Mountain, we saw Woody & Jessie’s Meeet & Greet, it was a long queue, we didn’t wait. We got on the Splash Mountain- 15 minutes wait with fastpass. We both loved it, though it was a bit too much for Pari. After the ride, she told: “mummy, you got to give me a gift. I really did a great job in this ride :)”. So, in the evening at hotel, she got her gift “Elsa Doll”.

Now, we were too much tired, came back to Main Street station, and reached Main Street to watch the Spectacular show “Frozen Holiday Wish”. We got to see Christoff, Olaf, apart from Anna & Elsa.

FrozenCastleIt was evening, a bit cold, bit hungry, we sat at a perfect place to view Night time parade and Fireworks.The park was opened till 9:00 PM, and the programs were over by 8:30. so, we left the park. Came to the resort, had dinner, and dozed off..

Kumar Vishwas: Poem Collections -2

This is continued from Kumar Vishwas Poem Collections-1.

14.

koi khamosh hai itna, bahane bhool aaya hoon
kisi ki ek tarannum mein, tarane bhool aaya hoon
meri ab raah mat takna kabhi ae asmanon wale
main ek chidiya ki ankhon mein udanein bhool aaya hoon

15.

humare sher sunkar ke bhi jo  khamosh baithe hain
khuda jaane guroor-e-husn mein madhosh kitna hai
kisi pyaale se poocha hai surahi ne sabab may ka
jo khud behosh ho woh kya bataye ki hosh kitna hai

16.

mohabbat ek ehsaason ki pawan si kahani hai
kabhi kabira deewana tha kabhi meera deewani thi
yahan sab log kahte hain meri ankhon mein pani hai
jo tu samjhe to moti hai na samjhe to pani hai

17.

panahon mein jo aaya ho to us par vaar kya karna
jo dil hara hua ho us pe phir adhikar kya karna
mohabbat ka maza to doobne ki kashm kash mein ho
jo ho maloom gahrai ..to dariya paar kya karna

18.

basti basti ghor udaasi parvat parvat khalipan
man heera bemol lut gaya ..ghis ghis reeta tan chandan
is dharti se us ambar tak do hi cheez gazab ki hai
ek to tera bholapan hai ek mera deewanapan

19.

sab apne dil ke raja hain sabki koi rani hai
bhale prakashit ho na ho par sabki koi kahani hai
bahut saral hai pata lagana kis ne kitna dard saha
jiski jitni ankh hanse hai utni peer purani hai

20.

jiski dhun par duniya nache dil aisa ektara hai
Jo humko bhi pyara hai aur jo tumko bhi pyara hai
jhoom rahi hai sari duniya jab ki humare geeton par
tab kahti ho pyar hua hai kya ehsaan tumhara hai

21.

hazaaron raat ka jaaga hoon sona chahta hoon ab
tujhe milke main ye palkein bhigona chahta hoon ab
bahut dhoonda hai khud ko tujhme itna thak gaya hoon main
ki khud ko saunp kar tujhko main khona chahta hoon ab

22.
koi manzil nahi janchti safar accha nahi lagta
agar ghar laut bhi aaon to ghar aachha nahi lagta
karoon kuch bhi main ab duniya ko sab accha hi lagta hai
mujhe kuch bhi tumhare bin magar accha nahi lagta

23.
swayam se door ho tum bhi swayam se door hain hum bhi
bahut mash hoor ho tum bhi bahut mash hoor hain hum bhi
bade magroor ho tum bhi bade magroor hain hum bhi
atah majboor ho tum bhi atah majboor hain hum bhi

24.
ye dil barbaad karke isme kyun abaad rahte ho
koi kal kah raha tha tum illahabad rahte ho
ye kaisi shohratein mujhki ata kar di mere maula
main sab kuch bhool jata hoon magar tum yaad rahte ho

25.
pukare aankh mein chadkar to khoon ko khoon samajhta hai
andhera kisko kehte hain ye bas jugnoo samajhta hai
humein to chand taaron mein bhi tera roop dikhta hai
mohabbat mein numaish ko adaayein tu samajhta hai

26.
ki ye urdu bazm hai aur main to hindi maa ka zaaya hoon
zamane mulk ki behnein hain ye paigam laya hoon
mujhe duguni mohabbat se suno urdu zabaan walon
main apni maa ka beta hoon main ghar mausi ke aaya hoon

27.
koi kab tak mahaz soche koi kab tak mahaz gaaye
ilaahi kya ye mumkin hai ke kuch aisa bhi ho jaye
mera mehtaab uski raat ke aagosh mein pighle
mai us ki neend mein jagoon woh mujh me ghul ke so jaye

28.
tumhi pe marta hai ye dil adavat kyun nahi karta
kai janmon se bandi hai bagawat kyun nahi karta
kabhi tum se thi jo wo hi shikayat hai zamane se
meri tarif karta hai mohabbat kyun nahi karta

29.
main jab bhi tez chalta hoon nazaare chooth jate hain
koi jab roop gadta hoon to sanche toot jate hain
main rota hoon to aakar log kandha thap-thapate hain
main hansta hoon to mujhse log aksar rooth jate hain

Well, these are my favorites of Kumar Vishwas poem. Among these, my all time fav is: koi deewana kahta hai, koi kal kah raha tha tum illahabad rahte ho, ek to tera bholapan hai ek mera deewanapan.., bhramar koi kumudini pe, koi pathar ki murat hai.. Infact, I love all of them :).

I love to watch his each & every concert, and kavi sammelan. I don’t think any youtube video on Dr Kumar Vishwas poems, is there.. i haven’t watched. His views on Hindi and the way he promotes Hindi are really commendable.

Kumar Vishwas: Poem Collections -1

Dr Kumar Vishwas

In the current generation, Kumar Vishwas is one of the finest Hindi poet, very popular in college youth. As everybody else, I too love his poems. Here is the collection of his poems, which I have heard so far, and liked it esp. which belongs to Shringar-ras. These are the poems which are frequently recited by him in various kavi-sammelan, colleges and concerts.  All of these poems are written by Dr Kumar Vishwas. They are not in any particular order. The pic above is taken from the internet.

1.

koi deewana kahta hai koi pagal samjhta hai
magar dharti ki bechaini ko bas badal samajhta hai
main tujhse door kaisa hoon, tu mujhse door kaisa hai
ye tera dil samajhta hai ya mera dil samajhta hai

2.

koi patthar ki murat hai, kisi patthar mein murat hai
lo humne dekh li duniya jo itni khubssorat hai
zamana apni samjhe par mujhe apni khabar ye hai
tujhe meri zaroorat hai, mujhe teri zaroorat hai

3.

ye chadar sukh ki maula kyun sada chhoti banata hai
sira koi bhi thamoo dusra khud chhooth jata hai
tumhare sath tha to main zamane bhar se ruswa tha
magar ab tum nahi ho to zamana sath gata hai

4.

kisi ke dil ki khamoshi/mayoosi jahan se hoke guzri hai
humari sari chalaki wahin pe khoke guzri hai
tumhari aur meri raat mein bas fark itna hai
tumhari so ke guzri hai humari ro ke guzri hai

5.

bahut bikhra bahut toota thapere sah nahi paya
hawaon ke ishaare pe magar main bah nahi paya
adhura ansuna hi rah gaya yun pyar ka kissa
kabhi tum sun nahi ayi, kabhi main kah nahi paya

6.

ye teri berukhi ki humse aadat khaas tootegi
koi dariya na ye samjhe ki meri pyaas tootegi
tere waadon ka tu ,mera woh hi irada
ki jis din saans tootegi, usi din aas tootegi

7.

mohabbat ek ehsason ki pavan si kahani hai
kabhi kabira deewana tha kabhi meera deewani hai
yahan sab log kehte hain meri ankhon mein aansoo hai
jo tu samjhe to moti hai, jo na samjhe to pani hai

8.

samandar peer ka andar hai lekin ro nahi sakta
ye ansoo pyar ka moti hai isko kho nahi sakta
meri chahat ko dulhan tu bana lena magar sun le
jo mera ho nahi paya woh tera ho nahi sakta

9.

bhramar koi kumudini par machal baitha to hungama
humare dil mein koi khwab pal baitha to hungama
abhi tak doob kar sunte the sab kissa mohabbat ka
main kisse ko haqeeqat mein badal baitha to hungama

10.

naval hokar purana ja raha hai tumko suchit ho
punah yauvan suhana aa raha hai tumko suchit ho
kabhi sunkar jise tumne kaha tha maun ho jao
woh dhun sara zamana ga raha hai tumko suchit ho

11.

mera jo bhi/apna tajurba hai tumhe batla raha hoon main
koi lab choo gaya tha tab ki ab tak ga raha hoon main
bichud kar tumse ab kaise jiya jae bina tadpe
jo main khud hi nahi samjha wahi samjha raha hoon main.

12.

mere jeene mein marne mein tumhara naam aayega
main saansein rok loon phir bhi yahi ilzaam aayega
har ek dhadkan mein jab tum ho to phir apradh kya mera
agar radha pukaregi to phir ghanshyam aayega

13.

tumhi pe marta hai ye dil, adawat kyun nahi karta
kai janmon se bandi hai, bagawat kyun nahi karta
kabhi tumse thi jo , wo hi shiqayat hai zamane se
meri tarif karta hai, mohabbat kyun nahi karta..

Disney World Day 1: Epcot One Day Trip

The first day of our trip started with Epcot. Park opening time  was 9:00 AM. How fast I tried, but could not leave the resort before 8:45 AM.

All Star Resort Bus StopWe waiting at the Bus Stop of All Star Sports Resort.

Disney Transportation Bus to EpcotDisney Transportation Bus from resort to Epcot

Pari’s Dad had to drop the rental car, and he came directly to Epcot. Me & Pari were waiting for the bus. We reached the park around 9:15 AM, and it was so much crowded. Big lines, checking of baggage, I got a but nervous, as Dad was not there. But anyways, it took a bit of time, but everything was all set. As we entered the park, the first look of Epcot’s iconic giant golf shaped ball sized Spaceship Earth was spectacular.

Epcot Spectacular
Me & Pari waited for Dad at the entrance. After we met, some photo-sessions, then we moved on to explore “The Seas with Nemo & Friends”.

The Seas with Nemo

The Seas Because it was morning, no rush, we did very easily the ride.. explored other giant aquariums inside, and moved on to our very first Character interaction to meet Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse & Goofy at Epcot Character Spot. We had fast pass for this,
we used it, though it was not required. It was a great experience to get our first autograph on autograph book. Pari was really excited.

Mickey MInnie Goofy

Just outside we saw Chip-n-Dale, got in the queue. It didn’t took more than 10 minutes for our turn. Pari hugged them , got the
autographs and photographs done.

ChipnDale

We then strolled towards Norway, our Breakfast reservation at 11:00 AM. On the way, did some photo-sessions. We got in our first souvenir shop “Mouse Gear”

MouseGear
and Pari found Penny pressing machine, and she just started to penny presses.

PennyPress
At 10:45 AM, we reached Akershus Storybook Dining Hall, we were wasked to wait till our name was called.

AkershusThe way the server called “We now welcome The Royal Kumar Family” . It was so royal. I took my camera, and asked him to please repeat again, so that I could record that moment,He was so shy and everybody around was laughing. he finally said, and when we got inside, Pari met Princess Belle, she hugged her, and all of us got into the photo session.

We were then taken to our table, also asked about our dietary considerations. When we explained that we would like only vegetarian and chicken, she then called up for the Chef. Meanwhile, we went and got everything what we could eat from the Breakfast Buffet. The Buffet was lavish. For Vegetarians, I believe, breakfast is good option, with good varieties to choose from. Chef came and he offered for grilled Chicken and Mickey shaped waffles with scrambled eggs and mashed potato.

Princess Breakfast

The princess interaction was really great. Ariel, Aurora, Cinderella & Ariel calls up all the little children, they go on a parade of the entire restaurant. And they come one by one to our breakfast table, they would talk, sign the autograph book and would give us the photo opportunities.

Storybook Dining Princess

We had very nice interaction with Disney Princesses. Asked Cinderella to join us for breakfast. She replied “Oh, thank you I just had breakfast with Prince Charming”. When asked, did you change your Glass slippers. She showed her shoes saying “Fairy God mother gave me these shoes with strap”. Snowhite loved my dress, and said you look like you are going to pickup flowers. Pari told Ariel, I love Sebastian’s song. Pari also asked Sleeping Beauty something.. which I don’t remember.

After having a heavy brunch, about an hour later, we moved on to explore the countries of World Showcase Plaza. Pari had to get her Passport stamped. We then reached Canada, where we saw a Friendship boat was ready to go to Morocco ( I checked Jasmine Aladdin interaction timing. their meeting would begin in 10 minutes). Perfect, hopped on to the boat. Very nice boat ride, great view of Epcot.

FriendhipBoat

When we reached Morocco, found that the queue for meeting Jasmine was already too big, and the queue was closed. Got a bit disappointed, but didn’t forget to get our passports stamped. We started walking towards France. Got a view of Princess Belle
in blue dress.

Princess Belle
Pari also saw, and was not much interested. So, we were relieved. Some photosessions and then we reached UK. Met Alice in
Wonderland. It took us 15 minutes wait time.

AliceinWonderland

Also met Winnie the Pooh and Tigger at the back. The wait was hardly 5 minutes. And we spoke, they made fun, we danced with them hands in hands. All full of fun.

Winnie & Tigger
From UK, we moved on to other country, reached Canada. About to find the place to get the stamp, then again we spotted the friendship boat, hopped on, reached Morocco again.

Inside FriendshipBoatWe then reached the place for meeting Jasmine & Aladdin. No queue, the cast member came & asked how many people. I said “three”. She asked us to wait for 10 minutes, if she can accomodate us. Within 5 minutes, we were in, and talking to Aladdin & Jasmine.

JasmineAladdin
Pari asked Aladdin if he has more lamps for her mom. My mom really needed lamp which had Genie. Aladdin was laughing and said you could take any lamp..

Afterwards, we moved to see the other Countries showcase. America, Germany, China & so on.

Today she finally asked the question of millenium: First eggs came or chicken…She was bugging me for the entire day.

On Christmas eve, Pari wrote a letter to Santa asking for three gifts. Then she came to me & asked:
Pari: “Does Santa give 3 presents ”

Me: I don’t know, Pari. If you have been good, you might get.
