Disney World - Day 7

Friday, February 26, 2010

It feels like forever ago that our trip to Disney took place...hard to believe it was earlier this month...
finally...day 7!
So by day 7 we had been enjoying plenty of Disney - far more Disney than I ever imagined we would...but what else is there to do when it's raining? Disney offers LOTS to do when it's raining, so...we did it!

Saturday, the last full day of our trip...it was cool and we fully expected rains again...but alas...the SUN came out! Actually, I think it might have started out raining all morning but I can't even remember...

What I DO remember...is the reason we went back to Magic Kingdom in the first place...The little miss, who was finally digging the characters, really REALLY wanted to meet the princesses. Well, by now we were darn near park experts so we knew exactly where to go and what do to...
So...to magic kingdom we went...for the 3rd time that week!
We found the princesses right away, who incidentally, were cleverly hidden inside this giant 'big top' store that we (on purpose) avoided the first two days we were there! Filled with all things Disney for sale at totally inflated prices...how were we to know that tucked far back away down a big old hallway was the path to our little girl's dreams!
So...While the boys wandered around magic kingdom and rode roller coasters - we waited in a FIFTEEN MINUTE LINE...
for this...


And this...

And this...

D had NO DESIRE to see these princesses...THAT day...but we have heard about him missing out on this over and over and over and over again since we've been home...sometimes with tears in his eyes...
We'll head back little buddy - we'll head back...soon!

The boys did some pretty cool stuff that us gals didn't...

He did however, get in on meeting Ariel in all of her seashell glory! I think that's what made the fact that he didn't see the princesses earlier a bit disappointing - he was rather smitten with her & the fact that she thought his pirate sword was all that...
I think he wanted a chance to impress ALL the ladies - (though THAT day he could have cared less...)

We took in a couple/few more shows outside the castle...



And the difference between a rainy mid week day vs. a sunny Saturday afternoon?
Check out this crowd! YUCK!
Both the hubs and I agreed that we would not have been gung ho for going back if this had been our first day of vacation!
Going in the value season is soo much better than this every day! This was the only day we encountered the massive crowds...rides had 90 minute waits and it was impossible to walk around...Sunny Saturday in February...yikes!
I honestly don't know how people go to and enjoy Disney when the crowds are large like this! Especially keeping track of kids/strollers, etc...
We literally had our run of all four parks...until our last full day!

I was more than ready to go back to the hotel around dinner time - after all, we got to meet the princesses and Ariel which was mainly what we came back to the Magic Kingdom to do for our last day...

But that hubs of mine - he's pretty smart - he had the let's keep on keepin' on attitude - we're already here - let's just do this...
We stayed for more fireworks and then...
(I have a gazillion pics that I took of it but well, you know, some of my posts are pretty pic heavy and they aren't that great of pictures...)
I'm soo glad he talked me into sticking around - it was totally worth it and we all had a GREAT time!
He was so right - let's just do it all, we're already here - I'm sure a part of him is thinking let's do it all now cuz we aren't coming back here for 10 years...
I'm going to start scrounging up the pennies for the next trip...which hopefully, will be value season about 2 years from now!
This one is already packed!

These are so cute. I wonder if Ariel is getting carpal tunnel from having to hold her hands like that all day :)
