This was our 2nd full day at Magic Kingdom (though it was our 4th time to Magic Kingdom for the trip). It rained all day again which was unfortunate. The kids didn't love it when we had to put the rain cover over the strollers. They couldn't see as well and they weren't fans of it. I don't blame them at all! But we tried to make the most of it! I also didn't take many pictures this day because of the rain, so I will combine this day at Magic Kingdom with our final day which was spent at Hollywood Studios.
The day started for the girls significantly earlier than it did for the boys. The girls used this day to go to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and get made over like princesses. They were so beautiful that me, Gordon and Debbie were all crying!
Our crew separated from the girls the majority of this day because they had lots of princess stuff lined up. Since my boys couldn't care less about princesses, we went off on our own to meet other characters and ride some more rides!
This was the day that we were able to convince Carter to ride Splash Mountain. He LOVES stuffed animals and we found a Mickey at a store that he really really wanted so we (being the bad parents we are) told him that we would buy him the Mickey if he rode Splash Mountain. So he willingly got on the ride. He really liked the part at the beginning where you go through the inside of the mountain. But when it came time for that hill...his face above says it all!!! He was fine until we hit the bottom. Then he cried and when I asked why he was crying he said it was because he got wet. We were in the back row folks and I am willing to bet money that he got MAYBE a few drops on him. It wasn't a bad cry either, it was a sad cry which broke my heart and made me feel awful for making him do it in the first place. But sure enough, we went and got him that Mickey!
And he slept soundly that night with all those dang animals. We brought Henry to Disney World. That's it. And somehow, during our time in Disney, he went from one animal to five. Justin was the one that slept in the bed with Carter every night except for one. We had two queen beds in our room so one night Carter slept with me, but the rest of the nights he wanted to be with his daddy. Which suited me just fine :) So Justin had to fit on the bed between Carter and 5 animals!
The next day we went to Hollywood Studios which was better than Epcot, as far as kid stuff to do goes, but still small so it didn't take us all day.
If you ask Carter what his favorite show at Disney was, he would say thing one. The Frozen Sing-a-Long. We basically watched the main parts of the movie and it was a sing-a-long. And at the end, Elsa and Anna came out and everyone sang Let It Go one more time and snow started falling from the ceiling. All the kids loved it! And because of it, Carter has all of a sudden developed an interest in all things Frozen!
After the stunt show, we all went to check out a new attraction called Club Disney. This had just opened on December 5th. We didn't know much about it but went anyway. Oh my y'all. This is the coolest place ever!!! They played club music (edited and kid friendly of course) and had strobe lights and a DJ and all the main Mickey characters were on the dance floor dancing with the kids. It was seriously the coolest thing y'all!!! Even the adults had fun!
Luckily there were tables and couches around the dance floor for us old folks that couldn't keep up with the four year olds! And the two babies used the table to roll a coke bottle back and forth. They were totally entertained by that!
There were screens on the walls and they changed a lot. Sometimes it was just dance related stuff like in the picture above. But other times they would play club versions of Disney songs. For example, they played a club version of "Under the Sea" (Little Mermaid) and the screen flashed scenes from the movie and the ceiling released bubbles during the entire song. It was so stinking cool!!!!
We went to Magic Kingdom again (shocker I know). Carter really wanted to ride the People Mover again. He rode it with his daddy while I walked Garrett around for a nap, but he wanted me to see it and ride it with me. So we went back and I rode it with him. He cracked me and Justin up. He was so proud that he knew about the ride and I didn't so he made sure to tell me everything that was going to happen and all the things I'd see. This ride goes through Space Mountain so it's pitch black and Carter grabbed my hand and said "Don't be afraid mom, I've got you. Don't worry, there's no bugs." Ha!!! Don't know why he thought I was worried about bugs but I loved the sweet gesture!
The next day we left! We flew from Orlando to Atlanta and then on to Birmingham again. Garrett did this right here during the longer of the two flights from Orlando to Atlanta:
This was a video from the Club Disney. Not great quality, but it gives you an idea of it!
