After the fairies we headed to POTC





After the ride everyone wanted to ride Splash again but Emma didnít want to ride again so we went to visit my Fiancť








Goofy was after her Lady








We went to meet everyone at Splash





Then we went to ride the Haunted Mansion








It was time for our lunch reservation at Liberty Tree. We checked in and didnít have to wait too long to be seated.


I believe I got a burger but the best part of the meal was the Ooey Gooey Toffee cake





Lunch was good here. I had only ever had dinner here so lunch was a nice change.


Leaving Liberty Square I thought it was neat that you can see the Contemporary





We decided after lunch to hit a few favourites. The carousel, Snow white (since it would be gone soon) and Space Mountain.


Leaving Tomorrowland we saw the wristband distribution so we stopped to get ours





Love the costumes





We made our way to the lockers to change into our costumes and then hightailed it over to the Jack Sparrow line. We were not going to miss him this time


In line there was a Rapunzel after her hair was cut

More picsÖÖ.
























































The character meets this night really made up for the other party night where we barely saw any.


We decided to watch the parade again but didnít take any pictures and just enjoyed it. Tracy left with her kids after the parade and me and the girls took one last look through the shops before heading back.

Is that Tracy in the fairy godmother outfit?

If so, where did she get it?
We are going to the last MNSSP party this year and I am trying to think of something easy to do for myself......that was one option I was thinking of.

What a fun MNSSHP evening, you did get to see a lot of characters

So cool you got to meet up with Kathy, Wow she makes a good Fairy Godmother

How is the Liberty Tree dinner compared to the lunch? You said you usually do the dinner, so I'm curious for the purpose of future planning

Love all the kids costumes, and so cool you got the girls with their princess/prince combos

I did like both meals at Liberty Tree but they are very different. The dinner is family style Turkey, stuffing, mashed and cranberries (typical Thanksgiving type food)

At lunch you get to order from the menu so everyone can pick their own food (which is good if your family has a lot of different food tastes)

I enjoyed both meals there so i think it's more about personal preference

The downside of being better than everyone else is that people tend to assume you're pretentious.

So is there some kind of 3-day weekend holiday thing going on in Canada? I could swear someone promised this TR would be done by the end of the weekend.

Day 11 Ė Monday October 3


Last Day


We got up and went to have breakfast at Pop. Our flight wasnít till 7:15pm so we were in no rush.



Tracy and the kids met us there and then Kathy showed up. She gave the kids the cutest Halloween bags with Halloween treats inside. Thank you so much Kathy for including my kids, especially since you had only met them the night before. You are very sweet!


After breakfast I headed back to the room to finish packing so I could check out.


The plan was to head to MK for a couple of hours but the kids told me they would rather just stay at the hotel and swim Do these kids know this is our last day?????? Ok it is a vacation so if you wanna swim, swimming it is.


I told Tracy how the kids felt and she agreed too to stay at the hotel.


We went and checked our bags (love resort airline check in) and then made our way to the pool and found a spot to camp for the day.





The kids took off to swim





As soon as Petals opened I ordered a Pina Colava (it is a vacation!!!)





We got lunch and hung out a bit











Eryka played some trivia and won a couple times








I got the kids changed and then we played a few games in the arcade. Then it was time to catch our bus








When we got to the airport we decided get some food and since we havenít had it in a while we got McDonalds





After we ate we checked the board to see what gate and it said 11:45pm. Now I know it has been a long week but I canít be off by that much. We went to the Southwest counter and the guy said yes the flight was delayed by 4 and a half hours. I couldnít believe it. If only we had known earlier we could be relaxin at Pop not stuck in the airport for 6 hours.


They did give us a $100 credit each which was ok but still 6 hours is a long time


We stopped to shop at the Disney Store and I got a behind the Magic DVD to watch on my Laptop.


We went through security and made our way to the gate.



Emma and Demetri were playing, Eryka was reading, I was on my laptop, Ariana was on Tracyís Laptop and I think Tracy was reading. I know it was quiet as it got later and we started to board the plane around 11pm.


We arrived in Buffalo just before 2am and my brother was there to pick up me and the girls.


I got back to my place just before 5am


Maybe not the best way to end a vacation but it was a great trip!

  • Circle of Life
  • Nemo
  • Turtle Talk

  • Spaceship Earth
  • Illuminations
  • Pick a Pearl

  • Playhouse Disney (I donít know how much the kids would really like this anyway)
  • ToT
  • RnR

  • Mike and Sully (Sully was on a break)
  • Streetmosphere
We did a lot in 2 days at DHS, but missd a couple things that will move to the top of my list for next year


AK


  • Safari
  • Camp Minnie Mickey
  • FOTLK
  • Discovery Island Trails
  • ITTBAB (skipped)
  • Rafikiís planet Watch (skipped)
  • Flights of Wonder (skipped)

It was 111 degrees this day and we just decided we had enough, We did the really important things on the list then left to swim.

  • Buzz
  • Cinderellaís Coach

Did not make it here


I think overall we did a really good job of completing our lists. We had to make choices to skip some items for either heat or lack of time.
All in all it was a great vacation!!!

You did do quite a bit. so be proud!!!

I can't believe you had to wait 6 hours. I better see if I can get a SW app on my phone so I don't get that problem in Nov.

This will be my first SW experience. Do you have your boarding passes printed at the resort then?

There is a SW app and I did have it on my phone on that trip, and still I didn't check (lesson learned)

If you do the SW check-in 24 hours before your flight (can be done on your phone on the app as well) then the hotel just knows you checked in (Disney magic) and your boarding passes will be hanging on your door like the Magical Express documents

The kids were all extremely well behaved at the airport for 6 hours and I am very proud of them all!

Good to know. I plan on paying the extra $10 for earlybird checkin. I don't want to forget about doing it in the midst of fun.
