Aww, this is the day I left. I slept in a little that morning but yeah, I do think they went back to their regular hours because we could hear the welcome show going on from our room.

Man, I want to go back! Gotta love the opening show...it never gets old.

I am determined to see the MK opening show this June. Glad you got to see it even though I'm sure your family did not feeling like waiting for the park to open. Kudos to you for getting out the door and all packed so early on your departure day.

I know. It is so happy. And I have to admit, even though I am not a super emotional person, I teared up a little.

They just didn't want to wait to get into the park. I turned out to be fine.

It really just depends upon your family's touring strategy. We hit rope drop whenever we could and fast passed everything we could. I thought it was crowded, but we managed very well and had a great time !!!

You have never seen it ?? It is really cute. We didn't see it for the fist time until last year. We had to get packed up so we could get the most of our park time since that was our last day.

You know giraffes are boring, right

Great that you are spending your last day at MK, where else? Love the pictures of (an almost empty) Frontierland

Day 8 Part Two

Fast passes for BTMRR in hand, I headed back towards Storybook Circus to meet DH and DD.









On the way, I got some more photos of the Tangled bathrooms.













DD loves the Barnstormer and we took advantage of the low crowds to ride several times. DH rode with her twice and I rode with her twice.







After that, DD rode the Tea Cups.







DS met up with us there and then DH and DS headed over to get FPs for Peter Pan while DD and I rode Little Mermaid.







DH obviously had the camera while DD and I enjoyed our ride.



There wasnt a wait for the Mermaid ride at this point, so we quickly met back up with them. We headed over to ride BTMRR with our FPs.

Rapunzel's tower is just so gosh darn cute. So are the pics of your DD on the teacups! She looks like she's having a blast!

I know, I love it !! To tell the truth, I wish they had done more with Rapunzel's tower besides making it a bathroom area. It is very nice and it really helps to have that place opened up through there. It was a terrible bottleneck before.

DD loves the teacups. But she is the only one in our family that does. She got DH sick last trip and now he refuses to go on with her again.

I love when the parks look empty. I rode Barnstormer once in 2001. I was there with my aunt and it was one of the few rides she and her partner would go on. It was a magical trip - I learned how great it was to stay on site and travel alone.

I don't do Tea Cups. My DH likes them but I turn a lovely shade of green and then the migraine hits. Not fun for anyone. I tell him to go on alone because I then practice my movement photography but he won't do it. He will sit and people watch while I try and get the pics I want though.

I like the Rapunzel Tower theming just wish it wasn't just a rest room.

I love staying on site. It makes the trip so much more magical. Barnstormer is a short, but fun coaster.

Same her on the tea cups. Makes me

It just seems like they could have done so much more with such a popular princess.

Great upate; I love the empty looking park. I can't believe there was no line for Mermaid...you did good.

Your daughter looks like she is having a blast spinning herself on the teacups.
