Disney World 2015 Day 5: Hollywood Studios and Late Night at Magic Kingdom

Our last day, we started out at Hollywood Studios. We rode the Toy Story Midway Mania ride and walked through One Man's Dream. We watched the Muppets 3D show, and by that time, we were just DONE. It had been a late night the night before, it was HOT, and there just wasn't a whole lot that the kids were interested in there. 

We ate lunch at our hotel and then went out to the pool for a while. We knew it was going to be another late night at Magic Kingdom so (some of us) napped before heading out. Cannon hadn't ridden the Barnstormer the night before so we all rode it several times in a row again. Then we rode the Winnie the Pooh ride and the People Mover. By the end of the night we had convinced Campbell to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and we all LOVED it!

The only ride we weren't able to ride that we wish we had was the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. We never had a FastPass and the wait was always about an hour long or more! We'll catch that one next time! We loved Disney World!!!

Disney World 2015 Day 4: Downtown Disney and Magic Kingdom

Today was supposed to be our pool day at the hotel, but it started off rainy and cool.  Once the rain stopped we headed to Downtown Disney to look around at eat lunch.

That evening, while waiting in line for the bus to Magic Kingdom, Kevin got stung by this guy!

We started off on the Jungle Cruise.

Then we all rode the tea cups and watched the Carousel of Progress in Tomorrowland. 

Then we split up since there were some rides that Cannon wanted to ride again, and Campbell did not.  Cam and I rode the flying carpets first and then we rode the Barnstormer 4 times in a row.

Kevin and Cannon rode Splash Mountain for the second time and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

We were all able to catch the parade and fireworks also. Cannon fell asleep on me once we caught the bus back to the hotel.

Disney World 2015 Day 3: Animal Kingdom and Epcot

The morning started off sunny and dry with a photo in front of the Tree of Life!! :)

Seeing Mickey and Minnie was actually the last thing we did at Animal Kingdom before leaving, but they were just the cutest!! I don't know how they express so much emotion without talking, but they were so sweet. Both kids loved getting their little autograph books signed by each character too.

The Dinosaur ride was super fun!

Triceratop Spin

The Kilimanjaro Safari was the very first thing we did when we arrived.  

Kali River Rapids was the second ride we rode that day. Thank goodness we had our ponchos with us because we would have been absolutely soaked!! We also saw the Lion King show, rode another little roller coaster in Dino Land, and saw the 3D show, It's Tough to be a Bug.  Once again, it started pouring around noon, so we were ready to head home after that.

That evening we rode the ferry from our hotel back to Epcot. The Christopoulos's were also vacationing in Orlando so we met up with them to walk around the World Showcase.

Campbell loved the old telephone booths in the UK.
