Friday was our last full day, and we packed it full of activities. We began with a Character visit from Scooby-Doo. Before leaving the Village, Autumn had her nails done (along with a little makeup) at the La-Ti-Da Royal Spa, and Silas got an airbrush tattoo.
Somehow, we visited three different parks in one day! We began at Hollywood Studios where the kids got to meet Handy Manny, Little Einsteins, a green army man from Toy Story, Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Lightning McQueen, and Mater.
We also saw some great shows: Disney Jr. and the Lights! Motors! Action! Stunt Show.
From Hollywood Studios, we had a short visit at Epcot to see if we could find any more characters. We ended up riding several rides – including Soarin’ – before catching a ride to Magic Kingdom.
Since we had not found the Princesses and Fairies on our other visits to Magic Kingdom, we had to go back one more time so Autumn could meet them before we left. What made it difficult was that it was late in the day by that point, and everyone was heading into the park for the parade and fireworks. Autumn was thrilled to find Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Belle, and Cinderella.
By that point, Silas realized they were about to have the parade again, so he begged to watch it a second time. Why not? The nice thing was that we had a much better spot this time and could see everything better than we did the first time.
After the parade, we fought our way through the crowd to the place where the Fairies were located. Tinker Bell and Rosetta were so very sweet, talking and playing games with the kids.
As we made our way to the van, attempting to beat everyone leaving the fireworks show, we caught glimpses of the fireworks overhead and listened to the music from “Wishes.”
