This cat apparently was killed by a rainbow. I wonder what he did to make the Lucky Charms leprechaun mad. Poor kitty. I did NOT buy this. It’s disturbing.

After eating leftovers in the room for dinner, we headed out to Epcot for the second time today.

We headed straight for Soarin. We knew we would have to wait for quite a while and thought we should wait on fresh feet! The wait was showing as 70 minutes, but we really wanted to ride, so we got in line.

Mom and Dad let me and Koala play with their phones while we were waiting so it went by fast. I love Fruit Ninja (Puss in Boots edition). In reality, it was probably only about 55 minutes, so that wasn't too bad. We got into the top row this time, so it was a better experience than last time.

My Dad really likes to watch the fountain outside Mouse Gear when it's "performing" and we hadn't been able to catch a show yet. So we went into the Cool Spot to grab a drink to enjoy during the fountain show. It played Yanni which is one of our favorites!

After that we headed out to Downtown Disney to pick up a couple of things including a Cheshire Cat pillow. I'm going to use it to help me fend of my evil cat Chloe when we get home.

Unfortunately today was our last day. We had a great time on our trip as usual and were glad to do some new things this time and to be able to share our adventures with you. We'll be back in November for MVMCP! We can't wait.

We'll be on the road for probably 17 hours tomorrow and I'll be checking my Facebook page if you have any questions for me!

Thanks for reading! See you in November!

Just wanted to let everyone know we made it home safely. I had to put up the invisible wall in South Carolina. Koala wouldn't stop singing along with all the Glee songs he downloaded before we left. I love that show, but can only take so much of dramatic show tunes. It's one thing when it's Lea Michele, but Koala takes it to a whole new level.

The trip only took about 17 hours, so we made good time.

Chloe was actually a little happy to see us, she purred all night...and then she tried to bite me. Back to normal.

Thanks again for reading--see you in November!

thanks, from another grateful fan of ssr monkey

thank you so much for your funny, intelligent, personable, and informative trip reports. so much fun to read! our rabbit doesn't give trip reports, but it's not her fault. rabbits don't speak. she does, however, have a toy monkey that she loves.
