It's not a boat.... It's a WATER TAXI!

On the 10th day of Christmas, Walt Disney gave to me....

10 Minute Water Taxi
9 Fightin words.....
8:00 Wishes
7 bathroom pit stops
6 Epcot "Santas"
5 million dancing lights
4 parks one world
3 season passes
2 1/2 hr drive
and a room at the Wilderness Lodge

So after my throw down the night before, we were up and ready for our last day of the Christmas season at Disney World.

On to Magic Kingdom first thing to hit Space Mtn. After all, there is NO going to Magic Kingdom and not riding ALL the mountains!

We raced downstairs, tossed our bags in the car, did a little pin trading in the lobby, then it was off to MK via the water taxi. And you thought I was gonna say boat, didn't you? Do you not know me yet? Boats are for the regular people.... WE are the McSparklesons!!!! We travel by water taxi!

It was about a 10 minute ride and then we were there for rope drop. I cried. Have I mentioned how much I love rope drop at MK? It just sets the tone for the entire day!!!

"Good morning, good moooorning!"

We raced over to grab FPs for Space Mtn, then headed to Splash to ride standby. The wait was only 10 minutes for both Splash and BTMRR so we were good to go!





Luckily it was MUCH warmer today, plus they had the jets turned off so there was just a little bit of water after the drop.

We wandered aimlessly for awhile - my favorite thing to do in any WDW park!

And look who we saw!!! Woody was mesmerized by Ally's autograph book and decided to spend some time checking out the other pages too. He was also happy that Jessie had her own page, too.







Pretty soon we found ourselves right back at SM to use our FPs. Now have any of you noticed the new standby attraction? VIDEO GAMES in the queue!!! It looks so cool.... but not as cool as blowing by all those gamers on our way to the front of the line!!!

I read a story awhile back about Space Mtn. Do not read this is you freak out easily or you'll never ride again.

Apparently the way the track is designed, it passes over and under itself several times, so if something should fall out of a car up top, there is a chance it could hit a car, or say, a passenger in a car, down below!!! In this story I read, CMs were overheard at the end of the day, while cleaning up the floor under the track, and holding up cameras, cell phones, etc, "whew! we got lucky today!"

So I'm a nervous wreck now when I ride this stupid thing. I'm waiting for it to start raining electronics or something!

We did it. We survived. We were off. We were feeling photogenic.







It was still early but we thought we'd check out The Plaza for lunch. I'm not a real big fan of using DDP credits on ANY TS in MK, but since we use the TIW card, we thought it might be nice to relax in here for awhile before heading to Epcot......

A walk in? No ADR? That's absurd!!!! Or is it?????

Oh, Kara! I did not even think to ask last weekend when we saw Ally & Jeff that she might have that book with her and I could have seen it!! Where was my brain??? I know you're all there right now, on your last Florida resident trip, and I hope you are having an AMAZING and magical time!

ps- I am STILL suffering from ITSK withdrawals...hanging with you is addicting!! Love you Sista!!

EDTA- Oops! You're still home! Have a great time tomorrow!

No Ellen, we decided not to go this weekend. First and foremost I don't want to celebrate our "last" trip for awhile. Moving sucks!!! So we decided that since last weekend we all left fairly happy, we didn't want to ruin it but going and KNOWING this was it! So we are going to relax this weekend at the pool with friends......

Jeff is out golfing with his buddies today - only two more weekends that he'll be able to do that. And then tomorrow we will all go out and play.

It's so weird to think that now its finally happening so fast!

We close on our house in SC two weeks from Monday, and then they pack and load our house here later that same week. Then spending one week here with friends so basically 4 weeks from today I'll be waking up for the first time in my NEW house!!!

Ellen, have you got our new TR started yet????

Kara -

Glad to see you did update your TR! I love your pictures in front of the castle. That is my absolute favorite MK picture spot. Good luck with settlement in a couple weeks. I know your are bummed about moving, so I really hope all goes smoothly.

You know it was! I ordered matching VB bags for me and Ally - I got the backsack for her and the hipster for me but she likes the hipster better so we switched!
