Disney Days 6-7

Breakfast with Mickey!

On Friday, we woke up and took the monorail to the Polynesian Resort for breakfast with Lilo and Stitch. Upon entering, we were greeted and given leis to wear, and we got to see Mickey, Lilo, Stitch, and Pluto! (Breakfast was delicious here!)

After breakfast we went back to the Magic Kingdom to catch the things we had missed. We did It's A Small World (girls had done it early in the week, but boys had not), Peter Pan's Flight, Dumbo, Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Swiss Family's Tree House, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Aladdin's flying carpets.

Wow! Compared to the first day, we were now Disney World experts at working the fast pass system and getting around the park! All of that efficiency was tiring, though, so we went back to the hotel for an afternoon rest.

About 5:00, we headed back to Epcot. There were several things we had missed, and we also wanted to spend more time in the World Showcase.

The boys rode Mission Space (we girls were too chicken!) while the girls hung out in Mexico! Of course, guess where I spent my souvenir money?? I got a great house dress in Mexico and a little sombrero for my kitchen!

We had dinner in Morocco, and I think this was my favorite meal of the week... Oh, yum... It was a flatbread with fresh lamb, vegetables, and a cucumber dressing. I'm hungry just thinking about it!

After dinner, Hannah saw Jasmine while I waited for Scott and the boys to finish dinner. After dinner, the Duleys went to Soarin', and mom and dad spent more time walking around the world. Someone had given us 4 fast passes that they were not going to use. As we approached the line, we were asking the ladies about where the kids would exit and giving them "the talk" about strangers and manners in line. The ladies offered us fast passes so that we could go too, and we all got to ride! It was an amazing experience... we were on hang gliders flying over California. It was so real at some points that I picked up my feet so they didn't get wet in the stream below! We all met back at the hotel to crash for the evening!

On our last day, we went to Blizzard Beach, the other Disney water park. We had another great day... the kids enjoyed the "tween" area where they did the zip line into the pool and walked across icebergs holding onto a net! We had to get out of the water for a while because of weather, but the storm passed and we were able to keep swimming.

We spent our last night packing and had dinner at Shutters, the restaurant at our hotel. What a fabulous trip!

Looks like you all had a blast! Glad you all got to go. I guess with a baby on the way, we will have to start saving up for that trip one day!
