We started Day 5 in the Magic Kingdom. We arrived an hour before our breakfast reservation so we were able to ride a few rides.
First we rode the Jungle Cruise (no pictures). Reese seemed to like it. It's kinda corny, but worth going on if the line isn't too long.
Then we rode Aladdin's Magic Carpet ride. This was a "tester" of sorts to see if she'd like riding Dumbo the Flying Elephant. They are basically the same ride, just different themes, however Dumbo has much longer lines. We thought we'd get a Fast pass to Dumbo if she ended up liking Aladdin.
it turns out...
She LOVED it!
"Again!" "Again!" "Again!"
So, while Daddy went to get our Fast passes to Dumbo, Reese and I rode the Magic Carpet Ride Again, Again, Again!
Afterwards we had a celebrity sighting! Jasmine and Aladdin greeted us as we exited the ride.
Reese just calls them "A Whole New World." This is the song Reese knows from the movie although she's never seen it.
Our breakfast was a character buffet at Crystal Palace restaurant. This character breakfast is set in the hundred acre wood with Winnie the Pooh and Friends.
Reese met Piglet
And of course--Eeyore "The Man"!
Eeyore was sweet and silly.
Reese loved cuddling with him.
She also was able to snuggle with Pooh Bear (again).
When our bellies were full (such a great buffet) we headed off to Dumbo.
Reese LOVED it!
"Again!" "Again!" "Up, Up, Up!"
Then she rode a Carousel horse with Daddy.
Such a big girl now!
Then we headed back to Adventure Land for a tasty treat I had read about, but never experienced! A pineapple Dole float!
This is where you get them at
and I must say YUMMY! It's worth the trek there.
While I finished eating this treat (I did share a little--promise) Joe and Reese rode the Magic Carpet Ride again! What can I say--Reese found "her kinda ride." I'm just sorry we didn't ride these sooner!
We then headed to Pirates of the Carribean. Reese was neutral on this one. It was dark and there was a small drop, but it didn't seem to scare her. I think of this ride as "Classic Disney" at it's best. Yo ho--Yo ho--A Pirate's Life for Me!
After a ride back to the front of the park on the Walt Disney Express train we were off to swim at our resort and nap.
Reese went down the slide
With Daddy waiting at the end
too many times to count!
Popsicles were had
and thoroughly enjoyed!
After napping we headed to Epcot.
We first rode Spaceship Earth. We all enjoyed it but we're hungry so we headed to eat!
Our dinner was at The Coral Reef restaurant. It was really neat to eat right next to the huge aquariums we had seen just the other day. A large sea turtle was sleeping next to us during half of our meal. Reese called him "Crush" (from Nemo).
And there were sharks swimming all around us, too. "Bruce!" "Bruce!" Reese would shout.
Stingrays were swimming around as well. I told Reese, "It must be a school day, because there's Mr. Ray--Nemo's teacher!" She thought that was funny.
Day 5 was a full, but great Disney day.
Day 6 was our last full day at Disney!
Unfortunately, I don't have many pictures, but I will still unload the memories.
