Our last day!
Once again we woke at 6am because the future douche in training next door was shrieking to his hapless parents how they were to get up immediately and proceed with making his world a better place to live in. At that point I had just about how my limit of the offspring of Satan and I walked to the adjoining wall and said in my loudest voice, "OH MY GOD I WISH SOMEONE WOULD MAKE THAT STUPID KID SHUT THE F*** UP!"
Yeah. I went there.
Now, normally I wouldn't have said the "F" word at Disney World. Mickey has big ears. I was delirious from anger and lack of sleep and it just came out.
Anyway it worked. It immediately went quiet in that room and we heard nary a peep from them again.
So, the plan was to go Animal Kingdom.
But the plan was also to get something to eat. After my all-night puke fest, I was starving. The children and the husband are starving pretty much every second of every hour of every day.
We were on the Disney Dining Plan and there was no sit-down restaurant at Animal Kingdom that we could go to. Not one.
So we headed back over to Epcot. We looked at our Epcot map and the approximately eleven thousand restaurants they have to pick from, and decided to go to Nine Dragons and get some Chinese food.
I'm really glad we went back. I always thought Epcot was kind of for nerds and then,I realized, "Oh! I am a nerd!" It all made sense as to why I like it so much.
It was early so it wasn't yet time to eat. We decided to explore a little more and ended up going to this Viking exhibit.I didn't know much about Vikings. I learned two things.
One, I don't like Vikings. They are kind of douchebags.
Two? My son? Could totally be a comedian. He is way funnier than....Steve Harvey. And that guy had his own show!
Then, we went over to China to explore and eventually eat. Oh my Bob in the late-day afternoon, it was gorgeous. Just stunning. I took about twelve thousand and ninety-nine pictures in China, so I won't bore you with all of them, but it was glorious.
Boy Child is very in touch with his own spirituality. Or whatever.
We went to eat at Nine Dragons and the food was glorious. It was really some of my favorite food since we had been there. The children even got red bean ice-cream which is really yummy and tastes a lot like strawberry. Boy Child spilled his on his shirt. He wouldn't be my son if he didn't.
Then? It was time to head over to Animal Kingdom.
When we got there we were lucky enough to be coming in at a time when a bunch of characters were coming over to pose with the children (and adults...lots of adults). We had not taken ANY pictures with characters to this point, so we physically assaulted a bunch of old people and took their places in line.
No...just making sure you were still paying attention. We just stood in line.
And? We got my favorite shot of Girl Child, possibly since her birth.
I have no idea why, but that look on her face just CRACKS ME UP.
We took a bunch of other shots too...I won't bore you with all of them. Jason and I even got into a few of the pictures. Also, they might show up on our Christmas cards and some of you reading might be people who would get a Christmas card from me and you know how I hate to spoil surprises.
At Animal Kingdom we just explored a lot. We walked around and looked at everything. I especially liked the Tree of Life.
The detail in that thing was mind-blowing.
Then, because clearly we hadn't packed enough into this day, we decided to go back to MGM Studios, have dinner and watch Fantasmic, the fireworks, laser light show. Which everyone we had met told us was awesome.
But first? A trip to Pizza Planet, of Toy Story fame.
And yes. The show was totally worth it.
So ended our magical experience in Orlando.
I wish I could go back. But I have to get some new shoes first. Also? A room not next to Damien and his stupid parents.
