So after making it back to the resort, Rachel and I headed to the pool.

I thought it was funny that her bottoms completed his "chin"

Rachel and I grabbed chairs on the beach by the shoreline.

And I passed out.

After waking up, Rach and I started to swim in the Nanea pool, but then decided to seek out the quiet pool.

Which was thankfully warmer!

We had a reservation for La Hacienda.

Rachel made fun of me for photographing the chandeliers. I liked them.

We opted for the two 2-people entrees.

Rachel and Dad split La Hacienda (I apologize for the blurry pic - I was trying to be quick so no one would notice)...

Mom and I split Del Mar...

It was really, really good. We really enjoyed this restaurant, moreso than San Angel Inn. We appreciated the big glass windows that looked out over World Showcase Lagoon to the dark interior of the Mexican pavilion (which is the big draw for the restaurant). I highly recommend it.

I forgot to mention that on the monorail over, we had found three FPs to Soarin' that someone had left behind. Rach, Dad, and I went to use them, and Mother held our fireworks spot.

We came back after Soarin' and all of us were sitting down facing backwards - people came and made a "row" behind us. Well, when the show was about to start, obviously, we stood up. Then this really tall lady behind us made a really big deal about how we were standing (how were we going to see sitting down facing backwards?). Her daughter in the stroller goes, "It's fine, Mom - the fireworks are in the sky!" :laugh: Way to go, optimistic child!

It turned out to be a great spot, very close to the action.

There were PM Extra Magic Hours at Epcot, but having done all of the popular attractions there, we decided to skip out, since we'd be hitting AM EMH at DHS the next morning.

On the monorail back, we spotted Wishes -

Unfortunately, we got to TTC right after they ended. I've noted in the past that TTC would be a great place to watch the fireworks from because they blast the music.

We walked back to the Poly.

For our last day at the parks, we got up bright and early for AM Extra Magic Hours at Hollywood Studios.

I decided to take a picture of the closet doors... because they're cool.

We participated in the mad rush to Toy Story Mania.

His eyes look demonic.

Doesn't look crowded? That's because everyone is inside, now...

Rockin' Rollercoaster was down, so we hit up Tower of Terror first.

I posted this picture on Facebook. It got 6 likes.



Rockin' Rollercoaster was open for business, again -

Rachel posted a picture of this wait time on Facebook. Caption - "This is why I love Disney World"

We had been "gifted" a Fastpass to Lights, Motors, Action, so we decided to go use that. Rachel and my parents hadn't seen the show in a few trips.

Rachel got ice cream before the show. It's mandatory that she eat at least one Mickey Mouse ice cream bar every time she visits Disney.

Because I had seen the show earlier that week, I now had an advantage photographing it. That, and I remembered most all of the answers to the pre-show trivia, which I answered aloud so that everyone around me would think I'm a car movie trivia genius.

My timing was off - still missed the red car jump!


DSC_2565 by vshingl, on Flickr

Got these guys, though -


DSC_2566 by vshingl, on Flickr


DSC_2569 by vshingl, on Flickr

Something I had never seen before - the driver of the backwards hero car was a girl!


DSC_2571 by vshingl, on Flickr

See? I wish that she was driving when Max was there - he's all about [jokingly] putting girls in their place.


DSC_2573 by vshingl, on Flickr

Thanks for pointing out Lightning McQueen, guy in front of me...


DSC_2574 by vshingl, on Flickr

Spy car...

I'm still a little late on the jump...

Walked by the new Disney Channel show -


DSC_2592 by vshingl, on Flickr

It was too hot to stand around and watch.


DSC_2594 by vshingl, on Flickr


DSC_2595 by vshingl, on Flickr

We decided to leave the park and eat lunch on the Boardwalk.

Got off at the Swan because it's quicker to walk from there.

We ate at the first place we saw -


DSC_2603 by vshingl, on Flickr

The food was really good. I ate a sandwich, can't quite remember what. It was a nice place to go to get away from theme park crowds, as well as the heat.

Where we'll be staying the next time we visit! They had some sort of event set up on the beach...
