Spring Break New York City Trip | Day Two

Day two in New York was just as much of a dream as day one! Strolling through Central Park in search of the ice skating rink was first on our agenda! If I lived in New York I think I would want ice skating to be my daily exercise! I was not nearly as bad as I thought I would be and I was even able to do some cool spins on the ice! I guess all those roller skating parties I went to as a kid payed off!

Can you say beautiful? We had the absolute best weather while we were there!

After some of us ice skated and the other half acted as our paparazzi we walked through Central Park towards the plaza!

The plaza hotel, the perfect combination of my love of Home Alone and Eloise! 

Obviously, a Home Alone picture is necessary upon arrival at the Plaza!

So glad Eloise and I got to share some quality time! The Eloise gift store is the absolute cutest! I picked up two mugs (one for me and one for my big) that have Eloise dancing around them, so fun!

After our morning adventures we went to a delicious restaurant called Rosie O'Graddy's to eat before our Matilda Matinee! Matilda was incredible and I think I liked it even more than I liked Cinderella!

Post Matilda we explored times square and had a light dinner at Ellen's Stardust Diner which is famous for their singing wait staff! It was a fun experience but I am not sure if I would do it every time!

Day Two Itinerary!

·      Head to Central Park around 9:15 or 9:30
·      Ice Skating in Central Park, try to get in line as close to 10:00
·      Head over to the Plaza and hit up the Eloise Gift Shop (Rawther Exciting)
·      Lunch at Rosie O'Graddy's / 12:30 Reservation
·      Matilda @ 3:00 - arrive @2:15 to pick up tickets for "Will Call"
·      Eat dinner at Ellen's Stardust Diner after show 

It may not look like we did a lot but boy were we tired each night when we got back to the room! Personally, I think day three was the most fun so stay tuned!

Also, be on the lookout for an awesome giveaway that will be posted a little bit later today!


  1. I love Ellen's Stardust Diner, so much fun!

  2. I'm dying to see Matilda...I'm hoping to do the TKT booths for some fun shows at affordable prices while I'm in NYC for the summer!

  3. I was just in New York and while I was there I stayed at the Plaza! I am so glad that I did it... We got a great deal- Buy 2 nights get the 3rd night free! I highly reccommend it if you go back! xoxo

  4. I am also obsessed with Eloise! You have one lucky big :) Can't wait to see what Day 3 will hold!
