After lunch, we headed over to use our fastpass tickets and meet the princesses. The park was crowded, but not as bad as I thought it would be since it was the Oct 1st, 40th anniversary! Once done meeting the princesses, we decided to head to “Pirates of the Caribbean” since my oldest DD wanted that to be her first ride, then we went toward the Liberty Square Riverboat, since we had never been on it. While on our way there, my DH was checking every stand because he wanted one of the new Mickey head pretzels. Well, he found it outside Country Bear Jamboree. That made his day…LOL…he’s easy to please. We took a ride on the Riverboat, which was okay, no need for us to do it again. And then we went to the stores on Main Street, since DH wanted to look for a 40th anniversary shirt. We did some shopping there, and then I told DH that I needed to sit and rest for a little while, since my stomach was feeling a little tight. We got a table in one of the little side streets off of Main St, and sat and had some drinks for a little while. Suddenly we noticed that oldest DD fell asleep. So, we let her sleep for a little while, and when she woke up we headed over to Buzz, People Mover, Carousel of Progress…when we came out of Carousel of Progress there was a party going on, with a DJ and dancing, so DH and the girls joined in. After about 20 minutes of dancing, we headed to “Stitch’s great escape”, we have never done this ride and oldest DD said she really wanted to. I told DH that I heard from Mousebuzz that it could be scary, so I would stay off with our youngest DD. He took oldest DD on, and when she came off the ride and walked over to me she was crying…she did not like it! She told me she never wanted to go on it again. :ohmy: I calmed her down, and we decided to do Monsters Inc Laugh Factory. Once we left there, it was time to head to the castle for our 8:05pm ADR. We decided to walk around the back way (past speedway, tea cups, etc.) because there were too many people waiting for the parade and fireworks to start already.
We got to CRT, checked in, took our picture, and headed upstairs for dinner. During dinner the fireworks went off, which was nice, and oldest DD lost another tooth. Not sure if anyone remembers, but DD lost her first tooth in Disney last November, and now she lost another tooth the first night we were there this time.
Our waiter was Okay, nothing great at all…definetly not “disney like”. He did bring over a birthday cupcake for my DH, but he was just not very “Disney happy” as I think most CM’s can be at. Anyway, it was an okay dinner, and the girls were very happy to see the princesses. Oldest DD loves meeting them…youngest DD likes them when they’re far away, but once they get close, she doesn’t want anything to do with them. Once we were done with dinner, we headed out of the park, and went back to the hotel for bed.
DD’s and my big prego belly:
