You know you’ve spent a long day at Magic Kingdom when the workers say “Good Morning!” to you as you exit the park. Okay, I wasn’t there that late, but I did leave around 12:45AM so it was a long day and I thought t was funny that they would say good morning. Yesterday was our last day at Disney and we wanted to squeeze out as much Disney goodness as possible. It was a good day, but not without it’s little frustrations and annoyances as often happens when you’re tired, hot, and your feet hurt from walking and standing in lines all day.
The day had great highs (Space Mountain amongst other fun rides, yummy food, and good company) and some “lows”. When I say “lows”, I mean it was one of those days where any little thing that could go wrong, did. For example, the bus that takes us from our hotel to the park was going so slow and didn’t have the AC on. Another time, I was hungry, hot and just wanted to pay for my food so I could sit down and the woman in front of me wanted to pay in change (I wanted to hit my head against a wall at this point). Obviously, these things are not horrendous things, but when you’re in the heat all day and your feet feel like they’re going to fall off, all you want to do is say “seriously?!”
But despite these little annoyances, the night ended with us catching the 12:15AM Electric Parade which is always really fun to watch! So follow me on my photo journey of my last day in Disney.
We ate breakfast at Be Our Guest which is inside the Beauty & the Beast Castle and was a very cool experience! I’m not going to show you the pictures just yet because I plan on posting a full review on Sunday so be on the lookout for that!
A Mickey ice cream sandwich helps when you’re being plagued by long waits and delays.
We went back to the hotel for 2 hours in the afternoon to rest up so that we could stay really late at the park last night. I got some food from the food court at the hotel and I’m thoroughly impressed by how amazing short order cooks are able to keep track, cook, and handle like 6 pans and orders at once! I got bow tie pesto with broccoli, mushrooms and olives.
Wardrobe change for the evening! This billowy sleeveless top has little silver stars on it and the quote from the famous song, “A dream is a wish your heart makes”. The trim on the neck, arms, and hem are all sheer and helps to further give the top a dreamy feel.
We ate dinner at Kona Cafe at the Polynesian Resort. The top left picture is a shot of my Pina Colada and my cousin’s Lapu Lapu served in a hollowed out pineapple. For my entree I got the Volcano Roll which also included a really tasty crab salad on the plate. For dessert I got this little Upside Down Pineapple Cake.
Then, it was back to the parks to get on as many more rides as possible and of course, snack some more!
Remember, popcorn was one of my March favorites? Yup, still on a popcorn kick.
How beautiful does the park look at night?
So onto the Electric Parade! It was a great sendoff to end this vacation. Here’s just a couple pictures from the parade. If you follow me on Instagram, you can check out the little video I posted. It’s a great treat to watch and the characters are very interactive! The music and pretty lights are so fun!
Farewell Disney – I’m sure I’ll be back again in a few years! As this post goes live, I’ll be nearly done with the road trip back to Georgia and then heading home tomorrow. I’m sad for spring break to come to an end, but my body is aching and I’m longing for my own bed. I hope you’ve all enjoyed following me on this trip! Don’t forget, I still have a few more posts from this trip to go. A recap of the road trip back and the restaurant review of Be Our Guest!
