final epcot day + princesses

My sister and I had a plan with this day. Early breakfast in Epcot before the park opens in the hopes that after we eat we can ride Frozen and Test Track, since we didn't get Fastpasses for them. It's back to that whole you can only pick one of these three and well, Soarin was the one we picked. Anyways that was the logic behind a breakfast buffet meal. With princesses! Lots of them! We ate at Akershus (gesundheit) Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion. I was a tad nervous about the food because well, Norway. But I was pleasantly surprised. Lots of options for us all! We met Belle right at the door in her pretty  yellow dress, as well as Snow White, Cinderella and Ariel! They also had a princess parade type thing and the kids all got up and joined in on that. It was such a magical breakfast for the kids! Well worth it! Today was also the day the kiddos wore their matching shirts that my parents got for them all! Love matching!

magic kingdom again + fireworks

Wild horses can't keep us away. We had dinner reservations at The Crystal Palace, which is a character dining experience plus also a buffet. My kids never really watched Winnie the Pooh which is a travesty in and of itself but they have however seen Christopher Robin. Which is just such a cute movie! So they were more excited this time around. Even if Letty was like ahem mom, the gray guy who is sad all the time should be on all fours and the pig is much much smaller than that. This is why I know they are humans in costumes. Yet she still lit up with each and every meet and greet so fine if she knows the truth.

magic kingdom + epcot

We got to Magic Kingdom a little bit earlier than we did earlier in the week in hopes to get some of the little kid rides taken care of before the crowds arrived. Tinkerbell claimed to have a 15 minute wait that may or may not have been longer... but we wanted to meet her so we waited just the same. She asked Dom about his Slug Slime that he uses for his hair, as she does the same. So now we call his hair gel Slug Slime. They also told her that their daddy has a Tinker Talent. But first are the sunrise run photos getting old? No, right?

epcot + mickey and friends


My sister was just on a mission this day. My kind of Beth! She saw the lines weren't so bad over at Epcot and well since we can just mosey on over there we should just go do that. This was Rob and Ashley's wedding anniversary so they wanted to do their own thing after dinner and my parents helped by watching the girls for them. So it was just the Sauders and Olsens. On. A. Mission!

hollywood studios + some pool time

Hollywood Studios has some of my favorite thrill rides! Tower of Terror and the Rock n' Rollercoaster are just where it's at! With the opening of Toy Story Land we were really hoping to get Fastpasses for one of those new rides but alas, it was not in the cards for us. Even if I gave up one of those aforementioned thrill rides, they were just that booked out. So. My sister was like, let's do this! Let's take the kids at rope drop and make a mad dash and do our best to get those triplets on the one ride they really just wanted, Slinky Dog Dash. And news flash: we made it. The line was completely out of the regular like line area and wrapped around the outside... it did not look good. But I think we only waited like 40 minutes maybe? Maybe even a half hour. The line behind us got up to over two hours so so fast so... We figured we were so lucky. Such a fun ride too! Definitely worth that wait I'd say. The line area is themed so fun and the kids just ate it all up!
