Doing Disney – Day 6

Posted September 12th, 2008 under Life, Travel by MicheleP.

Are ya tired yet? It’s Day 6 and we are! We’ve had 6 straight days of the parks with 2 three year olds. I’ve honestly been amazed at their stamina – we haven’t even had a really good meltdown – that in itself is amazing! Of course, it helps that every day except for one we’ve headed back to the hotel for afternoon naps. If the girls didn’t need them, their mama did!

Today we went back to Epcot and started our day eating breakfast with the princesses in Norway. This was by far my favorite character meal and I think the girls enjoyed it too. Before they took us to our table, the girls got to meet and get their picture taken with Belle.

Then we were seated in the tower and the food feast began! We will all need to spend a few days in food detox after this trip!

As we ate, several of the princesses came around to greet us.

The final “princess” to visit took us all by surprise.

“Mama – who is that?” I thought it might be Mary Poppins but wasn’t totally sure.

“Um, honey, I’m not really sure – why don’t you ask her name?”

Sure enough, it was Mary Poppins – not exactly sure how she qualifies as a “Princess” but I guess at Disney World everyone is a princess who wants to be :)

After breakfast, we rode a few rides. Evidently Scott enjoyed the Viking Voyage[photopress:The_Vikings.jpg,full,pp_empty]

The rest of the morning, we caught up with a few more characters before heading back to our room for a (much needed) nap

After nap we told the girls we were headed back to Epcot and Libby began crying. I assumed she was sad because she wanted to go to Magic Kingdom (definately their favorite of the parks) but had to laugh as she simply said, “I’m too tired to go back to the park!” I guess that is a good sign that you’ve had a good vacation – when the kids are so tired that they don’t want to visit the park anymore!

We let the girls play in the room for another hour or so and then when everyone was feeling a bit more happy, we headed back to Epcot. Did you think we would just stay in our room on our last night?! Of course not – and there was dinner at Coral Reef – we couldn’t miss that!

A big storm blew through just as we were getting to the park and so we ended up spending more time in the aquarium than originally planned.

As we passed by a table the girls squeeled with delight.

“Mama! Can we please do that?!”

“Do what, honey?”

“Color! Can we color?”

I’m so glad we paid hundreds of dollars so they could come to Epcot. And. Color.

I can just see it now…”Clara – what was your FAVORITE part of the trip?”

“The coloring.”
