Lon did not like the panko chicken nuggets, so he ate cake and Aunt Karen got him a peanut butter sandwich.
Well, the kids and Aunt Karen went through the Swiss Family Robinson Tree House while I stayed down on the ground.
Then off to Pirates of the Caribbean ! Still love that ride.
We introduced Ing to the wonderful world of smashed pennies. Lon loves those things still. He has almost filled a book here. We will get him another one soon
Then on to Splash Mountain! Aunt Karen got us Fast Passes for that. Super fun, love the no line
Since we had a fast pass for Splash Mountain, we could get a fast pass for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. So we did. Lon loved the roller coaster.
Love him, got a smooch from him since we were wearing the same shirt.
Country Bear Jamboree ! We thought about Grandpa.
now we all have the song in our heads.
Lon had a good time
We did not have to wait too long.
Be Our Guest is a super popular place!
These goblets are very tall and top heavy, so yes, I ended up wearing the sprite that was in the cup. No harm done, they brought him new sprite in a separate, smaller, cup.
After dinner, we got to see Beast! We did get a photo pass picture of us with him. It was very nice. We decided that since I was walking slow, and they were tired, we would let them go on ahead and we would walk back at a much slower pace. Well, since we passed the teacups and there was no waiting at 9:30 pm on a Sunday night, we went for it! Lon was thinking this might be fun, but how fast could I REALLY get it going?
Then we walked back toward main street
Then we thought it was over and started to move on. But other folks were not moving.
we only made it a little ways down the path
close to the finale. They were wonderful fireworks. There was a story that Jiminey Cricket told about dreams and wishes.
We could not leave where we were during the show as they blocked the exit from our path. Just as well, we did not want to leave anyway. It took a while once the fireworks were over to get back to the busses to get back to the hotel, but it was worth it. There were people lining up for the Electric Light Parade, but we decided to get back and get some rest before we started this up again in the morning!! Lon and I are having so much fun. I am so glad I was able to do this.
