Spring Break, Part Three
On our final two days of Spring Break at Disney World, we visited Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom. As Hollywood Studios opened, we headed straight for Toy Story Mania for some arcade-style fun.

Next, we headed to Tower of Terror, but on the way, I somehow managed to talk my kids into trying the Rock-N-Roller Coaster. My Favorite Boy said he would never try it because it goes upside down, but for some reason, he changed his mind. With shoes on, my Best Girl was just tall enough to ride it, so we left Dad behind and got in line. This roller coaster takes off very quickly, and I love my Best Girl's eyes in the ride photo.

Of course, as soon as we exited, they both declared it their favorite ride ever and wanted to do it again immediately.

We spent the morning and early afternoon enjoying our favorites at Hollywood Studios: Tower of Terror, the Muppets in 3-D, the Little Mermaid, and more Toy Story Mania and Rock-N-Roller Coaster.

Then, we headed to Downtown Disney for shopping and went back to the hotel to pack.

We only had three hours on Friday morning before we had to leave for home, so we were at Magic Kingdom before its 8 AM opening.

We planned to do Space, Big Thunder, and Splash Mountain again, and my Best Girl also wanted to see the princesses. Notice the death grip she has on them. I will be sad when we move past this stage. It is still all real to her.

As we left Splash Mountain, we got to see western Mickey and Minnie. As I mentioned earlier, we love to see characters in costumes we haven't seen before, so this was a treat.

We had never met Prince Eric before either, so this was an exciting photo opportunity for my Best Girl.

My Favorite Boy and Dad saw Mickey's Philharmagic while my Best Girl and I visited with Ariel and Eric, and then we all met up for a final ride on Pirates of the Caribbean where we ran into Pirate Goofy.

Before we could leave, we had to search for my Favorite Boy's glasses, which were left in the vehicle on Space Mountain. Unfortunately, they hadn't been found at that point, but leave it to Disney to fix problems. They found the glasses and mailed them to us. I love Disney service!

We had a magical Spring Break trip at our favorite vacation destination! Although many of the things we do are the same, each trip is new and special to us, and I am thankful for the family time and memories that these trips provide.

Sigh. You always make me want to hop on a plane and take off for Disney World.
