We like to start the day off at either Fantasyland or Adventureland. Today it was Adventureland with a Mother's Day carnation in hand. Aria picked our to dos. First, up up up into the Treehouse. Then three spins on the Magic Carpets - I can't even tell you how many times we got water spit on this trip, a ton. A quick cheerio break followed by another trip up up up into the Treehouse. Since the Jungle Cruise was up to 40 minutes at that point I pulled the 'mother's day' card and took us over to Pirates of the Caribbean. Aria isn't a big fan, but since they are refurbishing this summer I wanted one last ride to hold me over until they open up again.
So, we took a break from hunting treasure and ended up at Pecos Bill. Aria got the kids' grilled cheese plus fries grapes and a milk. I got a lemonade. Then Chris went over to the Golden Oak Outpost for two orders of fancy fries. Chris got the BLT waffle fries and I got the BBQ pork waffle fries. My fries may have knocked my original favorite thing I've eaten at Magic Kingdom to number two, they were that good. Top two for certain - the other is the nutella and fruit waffle at Sleepy Hallow. Not to mention we all had a completely filling lunch for under 30, which is practically a feat of strength on Disney property. Bonus points that I had a chill from the glorious air conditioning by the time we finished eating.
Then I handed over the activities reigns to Aria and she voted for a ride on the choochoo train followed by the Country Bears. About that point she was ready for a nap so we started on our third treasure map and before we were finished she was out cold in the stroller. It is too bad they didn't have all the maps up and running that day because Chris and I could have entertained ourselves with that while she slept. Instead we found a table in the shade, grabbed some waters, and put our feet up for a rest (Chris even cat napped).
p.s. Aria said her favorite things from this trip were Dumbo and that she got to wear her lemon dress. We are on part 42 of the washing machine is broken saga. Chris has tried and tried and tried some more to fix it, but something is still wonky. Although after two weeks without being able to wash clothes Chris made it so we could at least soak and spin our clothes into something resembling clean. Desperate times guys. Point being that Aria didn't have her favorite princess dresses to wear for many days so when her lemon dress got semi washed she was super thrilled.
And, here are the two videos from this trip - the usual one plus the bonus pirate one!
Have a magical day!
