Au revoir

With nothing left we really HAD to do Friday, we went to the Magic Kingdom. It was a lot more crowded than Monday and Thursday. We got autographs from Tiana and Prince Naveen and managed to catch Aladdin and Jasmine as well in the morning. Lily was scared of the boys and wouldn’t be in the pictures unless I was with her for some reason.

We walked back over by the castle and stood in the middle of the roundabout for the Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It parade. The cool part about this parade is that they invite you to come out and dance with them block party-style. The girls were all about getting their groove on, provided I was participating as well. It was much hotter Friday, and the girls were worn out from all the dancing. Two Disney employees approached us after the parade and gave the girls certificates and a stuffed Mickey and Minnie for being such good dancers in the parade. While they were excited to get stuffed animals, Madeleine was upset that Lily got Minnie.

From there the girls and I went to stand in line to see the Fairies while Eric picked up a Fast Pass for Buzz Lightyear again. This was the only time on our trip we used the Fast Pass service for a ride. The wait for the Fairies was close to 80 minutes, and I’m not sure why it takes that long. There are only 3 of them (just like there are 3 princesses), but for some reason it takes longer. We didn’t really visit any longer with them than we did with the princesses. Maybe some other families do.

We hopped on Buzz for another turn. This time the ride stopped often, so it was easy for Mommy to rack up 999,999 points.

We went to Casey’s for lunch on Main Street, and the girls wolfed down their hot dogs. After using up our last snack points on some ice cream, we headed back to the hotel for more swimming.

We went to Downtown Disney for dinner to use our last table service credits for dinner. We ate at Capt’n Jacks. The food was okay – same things as everywhere else, but the service was super slow. We had wanted to do some shopping at the World of Disney store thinking that many of the items we saw in the parks would be available there. Of course, they weren’t, so we ended up buying nothing there. The girls wanted to go back to the souvenir place at our hotel instead, so we ended up back there for t-shirts and such.
