Day 9 (9/20/09): Magic Kingdom and Going Home! cont…..

We rode pirates and then it was time to head to the front of the park for one last purchase prior to heading to the resort for one last lunch. I was side tracked by the Dole Pineapple Whips. I had to get one more before we left! While I was standing in line I observed Rafiki with only one family in line. I signed to my husband, “monkey” and get left the bench they were sitting on to meet Rafiki. DH might have complained about taking sign language class at first, but not only does it help us communicate with DS4, but I can also sign across the park without having to yell!













And my favorite good bye photo:



I had one more stop. I love long sleeve t-shirts with Disney characters on them. Most of mine are old and are starting to become threadbare. I looked and looked for a new one, but they did not exist. I finally found one in the fire department store on Main Street. It is grey with a fire fighter Mickey head in the center and the letters MKFD in blue centered across the front. Then the engine company number is down one arm. I love it! That was the only store that carried it!

We went back to Pop for lunch. I had the best lunch. I ordered some sort of Greek chicken pizza with feta cheese, olives and pesto sauce that was so good!

While we were eating lunch we determined that we still had 6 snack credits left! How does this happen? I went and picked up several Mickey Mouse rice crispy treats and a few packages of snack mix including dried pineapple and roasted almonds.

Then I had one last small purchase to make in the gift shop while my DH got our bags out of luggage storage.

It was time to ride the ME to the airport.







It only took 30 minutes to arrive at the airport. We had 2 ½ hours to kill. We walked around through the shops.







DH caught the end of his team’s football game. It took less than 5 minutes to get through security with three kids, eight pieces of carry-ons and one double stroller. We took the train thing to our gate. Then we waited for our flight. On that day Air Tran had every flight leaving from about 4:30 PM until ours left at 6ish delayed, except for ours. We kept waiting to hear of a delay, but we took off on time. There were a lot of people from the three earlier flights that had still not left trying to fly stand-by on our full flight. We had no problems switching planes in Atlanta and arrived back home at about 10:30 PM.

THE END!

I did receive my Photopass. Thank you so much Maroo! I will upload some pictures from it either tomorrow or the next day to this trip report. Thank you for reading along!

Woo Hoo!!


I am SOOOOO impressed that the manager actually gave you guys water, let you ride twice AND took you backstage for POTC! I wonder if that is the same place we went for the W/C line?? Probably not?


It sounds like you guys had a GREAT and Magical trip with lots of extras that many of our families experience on wish trips - and I am so glad since your family can't stay at GKTW...it makes me happy that you guys are still going to be able to say you got FOTL privleges and such.


Make sure you take that GAC with you when you go back to the parks. Since it was not stamped from GKTW - they may stamp it that way again? Never know.

And since it will be your "real" wish trip - it certainly makes sense that they may extend the FOTL pass? Who knows. It will be interesting to see.

ROSA...seems like an AWESOME Cast Member. What Disney is all about, really. She really gets it!

I assume you added her name to your letter to Disney about the issues you guys had and the good experiences, too!

Awesome TR!

Now give us some PHOTOPASS! But take your time.

No, we had taken the wheelchair line before. This time we went behind a wooden fence that was for cast members only. Then we went up a couple of stairs and in a back door. We were literally stepping on to a boat when we came through the door. It was really neat! With DS4's stroller tag we entered every ride through the wheelchair ride, which meant he could not run away. However, this did not work the night I lost him while in line to see the Dwarfs! Ooops!


It sounds like you guys had a GREAT and Magical trip with lots of extras that many of our families experience on wish trips - and I am so glad since your family can't stay at GKTW...it makes me happy that you guys are still going to be able to say you got FOTL privleges and such.


Make sure you take that GAC with you when you go back to the parks. Since it was not stamped from GKTW - they may stamp it that way again? Never know. I never even thought of bringing the old card, but I will now! Thanks for the tip. I did leave the stroller as a wheel chair tag on the stroller so we can use it to take the bus to the first park to get the new GAC card!

And since it will be your "real" wish trip - it certainly makes sense that they may extend the FOTL pass? Who knows. It will be interesting to see. The regular GAC without the green stamp will get you to the front of the line if it is also stamped with the wheelchair tag, which it will be!

ROSA...seems like an AWESOME Cast Member. What Disney is all about, really. She really gets it!

I assume you added her name to your letter to Disney about the issues you guys had and the good experiences, too! I sent a separate email to Disney about MJ, George and Rosa!

Awesome TR! Thank you!

Now give us some PHOTOPASS! But take your time.
They are all added now! Enjoy!

Thank you so much for reading along!

If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.

HI! so sorry I haven't come over sooner! I read the story about Tyler real quick on your PTR and God Bless you guys! I have a nephew with missing chromosomes, speech delays, and also many muscular issues as well! Although my sister is not proactive like you and I really could not tell you exact info But like your son, my nephew is full of life and joy! I am urging her to move by me so she can get better care for him at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia! When I get more free time I plan to read your TR!

Thank you for sharing your story!

Just finished reading your TR.

Wow what an awesome time you all had. I loved that you got to see all the characters.

What does the passport look like that you did? I am making my own autograph book too, but maybe I will make a passport also. I will have to check out the Creative Dis again.

Here is the thread for the passports:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1509917

Here is the thread for the autograph books on post #3 are the links:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2244871

I purchased a package of 24 lb. paper for both. The passports print front and back and the instructions are simple. They only take 3 pages of card stock each. Then I put 4 autograph pages on a single 8 1/2 x 11 page. Then I used a paper cutter to cut them and a hole punch to put two holes at the top of each page and hooked them together with silver circular clips that opened and closed easily. I added the pages for the parks we would be at that day and then took out the finished pages at night and put in the ones for the next day. The characters had a ball with them. I have them saved so you can just print them if you want me to email them to you. There may be some characters that you want to delete or some you want to add, but it would give you a start! Let me know if I can answer any other questions!

Hi, I know I am well past the end of your trip report but I just wanted to say that I thoroughly enjoyed your report. My gosh you got to do a lot on your trip. I loved some of the pictures of your children. They looked so happy in some of them. I was also happy to see that you switched to large sized pictured during the report.

It seems that you had both good and bad experiences with some of the CMs but I loved hearing stories of the good ones such as with the Yeti ball.

I am shocked that Johnny Depp actually appears during MNSSHP. I had never heard that before. The CMs that dress up do such a great job I am not sure I would be able to tell the difference. Your entire MNSSHP night was amazing. You got to experience so much more than we did when we went this year.

Thank you for sharing your trip
