Disney World – 5

Today was our final day at the parks. Bryan and Dave woke early for a tee time at the Oak Trail golf course; a free round is included with the Water Park and More tickets. Sue, Zoe and I bussed over to Magic Kingdom where the park seemed super crowded, but lines were surprisingly short. We rode Aladdin’s carpets, the Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and were at the Country Bears Jamboree when Bryan and Dave showed up. It was a great morning! We also waited in a short line so Zoe could see Princess Jasmine and Aladdin. She was excited to get their signatures in her book since Jasmine was the only princess on the cover that she hadn’t seen at our Princess Dinner in Epcot. After a quick lunch we booked over to the Meet and Greet area. Again, the line to see the fairy’s was an hour long!! well, since Zoe wore her fairy costume to see them we weren’t going to miss out. It’s the few characters we were willing to wait for, but it was a rough wait. Sue and Dave spent the time on their own out in the park since it was so crowded. We got to see Rosetta, Tinkerbell, and Silvermist. The wait was worth it!!! Zoe was so excited to see them and they each spent so much time with her chatting and taking pictures. Rosetta even fixed Zoe’s wings since they were on upside down. Tink thought her ‘painted’ wings were gorgeous and wanted to try painting Rosetta’s. Silvermist loved Zoe’s flower petal skirt and compared it to her own. What a time! Not much longer wading through the increasing crowds forced us out of the park and onto the monorail and bus to Hollywood Studios. Bryan and I rode the Aerosmith coaster while Zoe slept in the stroller with Nana and Pappy; it is a super fun coaster inside the dark. We also hit up the car stunt show and then some dinner at the Sci-Fi Drive In. It’s a cute restaurant where you eat in these cars facing the big screen with cheesy old-school horror movies in black and white. Really funny; Zoe seemed enthralled. She also like a visit to the Honey I Shrunk the Playground and we all like the new Toy Story ride / 3D shooting game. At the end of the day we saw the second showing of Fantasmic – the evening show – and it was great! A giant dragon and lots of characters, couldn’t quite follow the plot but it was still impressive. We got rained on for about 15 minutes of the show, but it let up for our walk out of the park and onto our bus. Again, Miss Zoe fell asleep on the way back to the hotel.
