Jenn's Trip Report - Day 4 - Part 2
After woke up from our naps we decided to grab some dinner at the Food Court at ASMo before heading back over to DHS for Fantasmic. As we were sitting there I realized that Aaron would have so much more fun if we headed back to the Magic Kingdom to finish off the night instead of to DHS to sit for 2 hours waiting and then watching Fantasmic. So... in a wave of something totally not like me (I'm a planner)... we decided to hop in the car and head over to the MK instead.
This turned out to be a fantastic decision because we got to do two things Aaron hadn't done that day... one of which he'd not done before, ever.
We hopped over to Tomorrowland and did Buzz again (one of Aaron's favorites) and I finally got a score worth sharing (I usually end up with like 2300).
Then we headed over to the TTA and did one last nighttime ride on it (always love it at night).
Then it was time to hit the Tomorrowland Speedway... something Aaron had never done. I went in front of Bill and Aaron so I could grab shots as we drove along. Something MUCH easier than it sounds, especially at night, I might add.
Then we headed over to do the "Tea Cups" again... and Aaron went nuts... further proof that it's indeed his new favorite ride.
We then made our way over to ride Pooh, something we hadn't had the chance to do Monday, and one of Aaron's favorites. When we got off we realized it was just about time for Wishes to start (8:56pm). So, instead of making our way over to Main Street, since we caught the show Monday, we decided to let Aaron play a bit in Pooh's Playful Spot some more. He was the ONLY kid there. Fantasyland was practically empty which was fantastic.
While here, we learned that this spot is a great new point of view for Wishes. The larger fireworks are shot off from behind the park so standing here you had them to one side and the smaller shots from the castle to the other. Neat experience!!
Once Wishes was over, it was time to make our way out. We stopped at the little benches between the castle and Tomorrowland and I grabbed a few night shots of the castle and played a bit with shutter speeds looking toward Tomorrowland.
Then, it was sadly time to go. We took a leisurely stroll down Main Street and headed to the walkway to the Contemporary (where we had parked again because dear LORD it saves you the crowds and insanity when the park closes). This was unfortunately the end of our trip. We waved a sad good-bye as the green monorail once again passed overhead and made our way out. This was easily the best trip we've ever had. Monday and Tuesday went so well and between the Dream Fast Passes and the last minute decision to head back to the MK, Wednesday was just perfect as well.
Good-Bye Mickey!! See You Real Soon!!
