Disney Day 4

WOW...How do I even begin to describe our day. I can honestly say that it was probably in the top 10 of the best days in my life. Everything about the day was magical...including the amazing turn-around behavior of Seth

1st thing...we are up early to catch the monorail to another resort. We heard from our neighbors that we could sit in the front...we asked...it was our lucky day and Seth got to be co-pilot. It wasn't busy that time of the morning...so we even rode the entire loop.

Then...breakfast at Chef Mickey's. It was very fun...Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto & Donald were all there...came to our table, signed autographs and took pictures. Seth's smile was unbelievable...he was SO excited to get their autograph. The buffet was huge...and very very tasty. It was a fun morning for all of us.




Then...off to the Magic Kingdom. It really wasn't busy at all...and we were able to ride a majority of the rides...especially all the ones Seth loved. The lines weren't bad at all...very very tolerable.
Enjoying his daily afternoon ice cream snack!


Driving the Indy cars...his FAVORITE ride!
We ate an early dinner at Tony's Town Hall. It was the only restaurant we could get into at the Magic Kingdom...and it was EXCELLENT. It was the "Lady & Tramp" restaurant and featured incredible Italian food. Fabulous. We really lucked out on the default dining here.

Then...time to get our costumes on for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. They shut down the park to regular guests...and only allowed those in who had tickets. It was pricey...but SO worth it for many reasons.

1. There are virtually NO LINES...we walked onto all the rides that Seth wanted to ride (and a few others too). We did the Buzz Lightyear ride 2 more times and walked onto Pirates as well as probably 10 other rides.

2. Most of the people are dressed in costumes...including the adults. There were a lot of themed families which was very cute. Made people watching even more fun.


3. There are dozens of trick or treat stations all over the park...where they literally put handfuls of candy into your trick or treat bags...and the real stuff--Hersheys, M&M, suckers, tootsie roll...you name it they had it all) I I can't even begin the fathom the amount of candy they go through in October during these parties.


4. They have a special fireworks show...with lights and amazing display of fireworks and special effects.

5. There was a special night parade...with the characters in costume...dancers...floats. VERY VERY FUN. For me...the parades are my absolute favorite thing about Disney.

anyone is planning a trip to Disney...I HIGHLY recommend coming during their Halloween party...INCREDIBLE!

So...it was a very very late night for us all...after a very busy fun-filled day. It was so cute though...on the bus ride back to the resort...every kid on the bus was totally zonked on their parent's laps...with smiles on their faces.
I'm so bummed...it was such a fun, busy day...way too busy to take many pictures. Next time we need a personal photographer to just follow us around...but then that would be way too many pictures to scrap!
