Disney 2013, Day 7 (Part II): Magic Kingdom

Thursday evening we met at The Grand Floridian Resort to dine with Cinderella at 1900 Park Fare.IMG_0454
This is one of our favourite places to eat and we enjoyed another super dinner.IMG_0455

Bec, look who we found!!  BOB!!!IMG_0469
Bob was a character handler when my niece Rebecca first went to Disney and he was instrumental in helping her learn to enjoy the characters.  We saw him on 3 different trips and then hadn’t seen him in years.  It was fun to bump into him at supper this night and took a picture with him with Tor (after I dragged her over Smile).  Here he is with Bec and Tor when we were here back in 2008!Bec and Tor with Bob, Jan 2012
After supper Sharon and the kids headed back to the resort for a swim and earlier night and I thought we might do the same.  Not my party girl!  I asked her if she wanted to do that and she gave me a big, ‘Nope!  Let’s go back to the Magic Kingdom!’  So…that’s what we did!
(In the meantime we stopped in at the store in the Grand Floridian.  As we looked around I heard, ‘Catherine?  Hannah?’  It was a treat to meet a long time blog reader whom I’d never met before and her family too!  Hi Theresa!  It was wonderful to meet you!!)
Once back in the MK we made our way past the crowds waiting for the Main Street Electrical Parade and headed to Fantasyland.  We rode Small World where Hannah pretended to nap.IMG_0482
From there we were able to walk on to the Carousel, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Goofy’s Barnstormer and Dumbo, all without waiting for a moment!  After the week of busy crowds this was a treat!
I told Hannah I wanted to go on Goofy’s Barnstormer one last time because the fireworks were about to start and I thought they would be neat to see from there.  The girls running the ride remembered Hannah and welcomed her back.  We went around once and when we got back nobody was there so we went again….and again….and AGAIN!  How many times you ask??IMG_0500
Yup!  10 times!

Needless to say, once we got off the ride around 10:30 Hannah crashed within moments!  Sweet Disney dreams baby girl!IMG_0503


  1. 10 times on Goofy's coaster? I might throw up. LOL What a fun mommy you are! I love reading your recaps. I adore Disneyland and haven't been in a couple of years. It's making me miss it soooo much!

  2. Ha! Love it! On our last trip we did the exact same thing! We were the only people on Barnstormer & Dumbo & they let us ride & ride! Maybe it had something to do with being 10:30 or 11 pm? ;) Ha! Our 4 year olds could definitely hang with each other! We like to see Mickey ride in on the train in the a.m. & they have to kick us out at night! :)

  3. Just catching up on your trip! I am exhausted just reading about it.

    Time to read all the other posts now.
