Finally ... resuming my TR. If you need to catch up or remember who we are: Pre-Trip Report: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2236835 Day 1: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2236845 Day 2: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2238316 Day 3: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2244459 Day 4 Wednesday, June 3, 2009 Three Parks, One Pool, One Day We were up in time to get ready and head to the MK in time to meet Kev, Tam, Susan, and Dot at 9:00. We find them at the corner of the hub and head towards Fantasyland for a tour of the dark rides. On the way, we see the evil stepmother and stepsisters. One of whom, takes a liking to Evan and shouts that she is readily available and that he should call her. Evan thinks this is a riot and bursts in laughter. The evil stepmother never breaks character. In fast succession, we ride Pooh, Snow White, Peter Pan (still my favorite after all these years), and Mickeys Philharmagic. Next up is Small World, where Tam makes a mad dash for the Carousel, refusing to step foot anywhere near this attraction. Evan and I had not ridden this in several years in fact, Im sure we havent ridden it since the refurb (how long ago was that?) Afterwards, we all make our way to Haunted Mansion for another great ride. And once again, we were stuck for a while unfortunately, we have nothing to look at as we are stuck while entering the last room with the hitchhiking ghosts. Its after Haunted Mansion, that Evan and I declare we must have breakfast. The ladies suggest that Mrs. Potts Cupboard has excellent brownie fudge sundaes. Sounds like a great breakfast to me! Evan opts for the chocolate sundae, while I take on a rootbeer float and chocolate chip cookie (we are sure this satisfies our dairy intake and most certainly our daily sugar intake as well). As we are due to meet India and Georgia at 11:00, we make our way towards Caseys, passing by the castle and stopping at the Wishing Well, which Evan has never seen. We would be remiss if we didnt toss in a couple of coins for good luck. As we arrive at the hub, we cant help but notice that Mickeys Celebration parade/dance thingy is in full swing. We have lost Kevin and Tam, as they have made a bee-line for Caseys. And Dot, Susan, Ev, and I proceed to lose each other as each of us get stuck at various places around the hub, partly by the crowd, but partly because we are enjoying watching the dancers. Personally, I think the parade (and music) are quite infectious. In typical Disney fashion, this is a brightly-colored ensemble that is absolutely full of energy! Evan and I have managed to secure an ADR at Le Cellier for later this afternoon. The thought of eating here has TAM frothing at the mouth and we all agree wed like to try and have dinner here together before we leave. Alas, its not meant to be (perhaps we were a little too delusional in thinking wed be lucky) and we decide on having dinner at Bistro de Paris Friday night instead. The Jungle Cruise is up next with a skipper who definitely does not qualify for the Celebration parade she has little energy and an unenthusiastic delivery and while I understand the need for the skippers to have a dead-pan delivery, I also would like for them to be breathing when they do.
