Barreling in to Day #7 we woke again at the crack of dawn to hit the Magic Kingdom, Sidda’s choice for last park, one more time. We were pretty wiped out before we began and I was worried it might be a wash.
Things quickly took a turn up though when we headed to Sidda’s favorite ride this trip, Big Thunder Mountain and rode it seven times in a row.
So there you go. Trip worth it.
We did Dumbo
and Peter Pan early, repeated Haunted Mansion (several times through the day. It was Sidda’s 2nd favorite ride), Small World and other things and called it about 10:30AM because the park was filling, we’d done more than most people do in three days and we had reservations. We grabbed some fast passes for Big Thunder, for that night, on the way out.
Then we took the Monorail over to Chef Mickeys!
Sidda *finally* got to meet Minnie (snafus were had last trip.)
It was loud and there were characters.
There were also Mickey Waffles, but they cannot be photographed, because they are eaten too quickly.
Then we went back to the resort for some chill time, swim break and “wait for all the crazy people to get out of the park” break.
Sidda is herein demonstrating unsafe ways to jump in a pool.
Eventually we headed back to the park, rode the Magic Carpets, which had been vexing us with broken-downness all week, Haunted Mansion (again!?), Big Thunder at sunset and night (fun!), watched part of the Main Street Electrical Parade again, and one thing happened I did not expect…
Sidda decided she wanted to ride Space Mountain one last time.
Oops. no fastpasses. I thought she hated it! But she was set.
The line ap was saying 50 minutes, and cynical Disney sign of course claimed 80 or some nonsense, but it didn’t look that bad to me so we sneaked in smoothies (you just have to know me) and braved the line. It was cute, little games and all, though *packed* with crazy teenagers in a competition to ride it the most times in a day. Most of them must have been pushing 20 times, or somehow were drunk. Not sure. It was loud and wild, but we got through in 30 minutes. It was officially the longest line we waited in all week on one of the most crowded weeks of the year! No complaints.
Sidda wanted Lee to ride behind her and keep his hands on her shoulders again, but shortly into the ride she peeled her hands off and rode solo like the little maniac she is! We came out to see the last few fireworks go off.
We were tired, but she wanted to hop on The Tomorrowland Speedway one last time since it had no line and she and Lee or someone did and I think I stared at a bench. We were all stumbling at that point.
One last attempt to smile for a camera was made
On the way out, we passed another round of the Parade getting started and right as we hit the gates, Mickey went by and waved right to us.
