They have been riding and re-riding tea cups this whole time. I hope it is time to move on. Nope, the friend wants to ride Splash Mountain, on other side of MK. Commando plans thwarted.



Then, we ran into one of the players on my soccer team. 1000 miles away and we've met up with 5 families.

Splash Mountain.



Time for MNSSHP to start. No more pics til tomorrow.

Awesome trip highlights!- Today I'm going through SERIOUS WDW withdrawal, it's been 5 days since my last hit!
I'm so glad to hear that someone else besides me, truly loves that early morning walk through an empty world showcase to the princess breakfast....*sigh*, this is the most wonderful ingrained memories of my dd's first few times to the magic

Your girls are beautiful...and I love the costumes last night.

I like the Epcot picture with Minnie for the christmas card...btw

Wow! Looks like you guys are having a blast! When you get back I need to pick your brain for Epcot tips (Dec trip will be our first ever trip to Epcot! Shocker. I know) I was super excited to see Merida at MK! We need more redheaded leads!

It was good stuff. I'm not sure the pre-packaged is as good, but I'll risk it next time to take on the road.

Be happy to offer any that I can. MK is our favorite park and Epcot is my second. I was happy to get that picture, especially with the timing of the whole thing.

These are the last of the pictures from the MNSSHP last night.

Left Splash Mountain and found this quartet. Again, something new for us. I always like seeing something new at WDW.



The MNSSHP officially started, so it's time to go to Haunted Mansion again first as usual.



Then, we knock out some familiars. Peter Pan



IASW



Then, it's a walk past the first parade and dinner at Lunching Pad - hot dogs and pretzels. We were all really tired. I think one of my future recommendations/ plans will be not to do three parks till midnight.

We do Buzz Light Year. In have one of these from each year. My oldest said she almost couldn't squeeze her head inside the bars.



We find the ball/ cauldron toss game over in front of Mickey Star Traders. We were just really tired, so at this point, we just slowed down and missed some rides and trick or treating I would normally have pushed everyone to do.





Each one so they received a button with their name on it.

Then, it was Hallow wishes time - the best fireworks show in WDW I have ever seen. All our seats were taken at the Tomorrowland bridge, so apparently EVERYONE read my trip report for my strategy. we had to stand and watch the fireworks, but it was still the best show.

Then, we head over to Frontierland for our parade seats, and manage to get the bench seats outside LTT. A great catch. DW and youngest dd went to get a picture with Tiana while we held the seats.



The Headless Horseman returned. Apparently, the horse threw the rider on Monday. While I have no official details, my guess was the ground was too wet. But, it was good to see the rider back in the saddle again.

We went and did some shopping at Emporium and got our 2012 Halloween pin. I'll post pics of the pin collection when I get home. On the way out, oldest was into Agent P, got her Perry Platypus pillow pet, and was able to snag this picture before we exited the park.



What a great way to end our vacation. We'll pack up and drive back home in a few hours. I may add some more lunch pictures and pins pictures tomorrow along with some final thoughts and conclusions. Thanks for following us along on our Disneytopia vacation.

Don't know if you've hit the road yet, but if you have time, I hear there's a soft opening at Fantasyland right now. Touringplans is tweeting info about it.

The pre-packaged IS as good...

I have brought it home in the past.

Yeah, I knew about it. I thought about adding another day on (or just paying cash), but we have birthday plans tonight with FIL. I'll get to see it next year - always worth waiting for something Disney magical.

Day 7 - Our last day at WDW (October 12) is always the worst. And, to top it off, it is DW's birthday and we have a 13 hour car ride. So, we enjoy the last few breaths of Disney magic, eat lunch, and then it is on the road.

Departing Mickey Waffles for dds.



Departing rice krispie treat for me. I like it better without chocolate.



Had to get one more picture of the dds before leaving.



And, we stopped somewhere late in Florida. Probably the last palm tree I will see until Spring Break, unless one of you is giving me a Disney vacation sooner or I win the lottery.



Another great vacation. I'll post my pin pictures and epilogue later. Time to wash some more clothes.

Yesterday was DW's birthday. While it is great to be able to give her a Disney vacation every year (coincidence that it occurs during school Fall Break ), it meant spending 13 hours in the car driving home yesterday. We have driven there before on her birthday, which works ok, but not as much driving home.

I had planned to go to the store and get her roses and breakfast for her birthday, but I picked up a few extras as well - pink roses, Krispy Kreme donuts, a new pillow, and coke classic in those glass bottles. They just taste better that way.
