Our final day at Disney is always bitter sweet. We get one last chance to see and feel the Magic but we don’t want to say good-bye…..
In the past we’ve had such a hard time saying so long that we don’t leave until 6, 7, 8, and even once 9pm and that makes for a really hard and sometimes scary 6 hour car ride home. Pulling off the highway running around the car trying to wake ourselves up is NOT a good thing to do.
We’ve matured in our decision making and now we try not to leave any later than 3pm. 😀 Since we have limited time we hit the last few attractions we can, purchase souvenirs, load up the luggage and head home.
The 1st on our list on our last day was a family favorite The Tiki Room! Where the birds sing words and the flowers croon! 🙂
I love the classics. Especially because the music use to be well…music. In the Tiki Room I love the water fountains that transport me back to another era, and I feel Walt’s imaginative hands in the entire experience. It’s a good time! 🙂
We had been trying over the past week to see Jasmine and Aladdin but every time we came they either weren’t there or were about to leave. The stars aligned on the last day and we finally got to meet them!
Walker really impressed us this trip. He really showed us what a mature young man he’s becoming. Jared and I kept telling him throughout the trip how proud of him we are. It’s been a few years since we’ve gone on vacation with just our family. We like to invite other family/friends when we go, but it was great to just have it be our little family this time. It really gave us a chance to connect with our kids and experience them in a different way. I know we probably wouldn’t have been quite as aware of the changes we saw in Walker if we had been traveling with another group. I’m so glad we didn’t miss out! 😀
That was pretty much all we had time for so we left the Park. Walker had purchased a lanyard and 2 pins earlier in the trip so he could start the exciting journey of pin trading. I already mentioned Alayna bought a Jasmine doll, and Eli got an adorable puppy at Build-a-Bear. He dressed him up as a Jedi and named him Pupi-Wan. So cute!
