Final Day @ Disney.....

We were very sad to see our trip to come to an end!! We ate breakfast at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resort at the Cape May Cafe. It was the last character meal of our trip. :( From there we let the kids decide which park they wanted to go back to and ride some of their favs just one more time. They chose Epcot since it had been a while since we had rode Soarin and Test Trac. So we hopped on the ferry and away we went. We managed to use all the different forms of transportation available at some point in our trip. After some time there we went back to our resort for lunch and hung out there while we waited for our shuttle to the airport. We were very exhausted, but very sad to have to leave. It was a VERY memorable trip and one that we would love to be able to do again in the future. I hope you have enjoyed the pics half as much as we enjoyed being able to take them!!
The theme for this meal was beach!
High five from Donald!
They thought Goofy was so funny in his life jacket!
Riding the ferry boat
Our resort was a vacation in itself. The following are a few of the amazingly huge things that we got to look at every day!

Day 7....Last Full Day

On our 7th day we were able to meet up with Joey and Christi again. We had breakfast with them at their resort, the Polynesian. The kids had a great time and Braden and Luke really hit it off great again. From there we all spent a few hours together at Hollywood Studios. We had a great visit with them, it was great catching up and giving the kids someone to play with. Since we had already been there once, we took part of the afternoon and went back over to Downtown Disney for a while. We then headed back over to Hollywood Studios for dinner and a few more rides then were able to enjoy the fabulous Fantasmic show. Braden we dying to ride the Tower of Terror so him and I ventured there and he absolutely LOVED it!! Then we finally got Dale and Kaylee on something that the height requirement was more than 42".....the Aerosmith Rockin' Roller Coaster. It was by far the best roller coaster I have ever been on and they LOVED it!

Day 6....Back to Magic Kingdom

We started day 6 with breakfast at Chef Mickey's. It was a good breakfast but I think we were all a lil too exhausted to enjoy it to the fullest!! We went from there to Magic Kingdom for another day. Oh, and they finally got to ride the Monorail!!! We enjoyed a more relaxing day there catching the things we missed the first day. There favorite ride this time was Splash Mountain!! We then went and ate dinner at the Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare. We were very sad to say good-bye to Magic Kingdom!!

Goofy @ Chef Mickeys

Braden got to see Donald one last time!!
And we always love to see Minnie!

They LOVED Pinocchio!
Mary Poppins told them to be sure and mind their manners. When we left her Braden said "who is Mary Poppins?"
Wendy and Peter Pan.....Braden was SO excited we got to see them! They kept telling Kaylee her bows were really hair ornaments and were so sad for Braden that he did not have any!

Day 5....Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom was a very good and relaxing day for us. We started the day at the Donald's Safari Breakfast. We spent the majority of our time there watching some amazing shows! We saw The Lion King and the Finding Nemo shows! We left there about 3:00 and headed to Downtown Disney for some shopping then off to our Dinner show that evening.

We finally met Daisy!!
And Safari Mickey!

The star of the b/fast was Donald

Goofy is always great to see!

The Lion King show. Pics were hard to get in here due to the lighting and smoke. It was AWESOME!!

We just happened upon a storytime w/ Pocahontas.
Brother Bears were there too!

Lilo and Stitch
Who are these kids???
Waiting for our Dinner show....showing off another one of our matching outfits!
We had dinner at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue. This was a dinner show and they served a family style dinner equipped with ribs. Which as you can see, Braden enjoyed immensely!!

While we were eating the performers mingled around the room. Braden hit it off with one of the ladies and she picked him as her guest in the show. He played the sheriff! He did GREAT!!!
And he even got a kiss from one of them!! I don't have the pic but right after this they told him to wipe it off and boy did he put some acting into it!!!
This was the final pose of the show!!
At the end they gave certificates. This is him getting his.
His new friend!!!
They also gave him a pic of "the kiss"!! He glared at it the whole way back to the resort. He was on about cloud 11 the whole rest of the night and every time we talked to anyone after that he made sure he told them all about it!!
More presents from housekeeping!
They even gave our toothbrushes a new home.
