Friday, October 10th was our last day in the Happiest Place on Earth as we flew home Friday night.
Since we were out past 1 AM the night prior and we had no breakfast reservations, we decided to sleep in a bit. We got up at 7 AM & got ready and finished packing. For breakfast we had our leftovers from Be Our Guest and from the Dessert Party. We did airline check-in and stowed our carry on luggage with bell services and headed to Magic Kingdom.
We played a bit of Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom and then we did something I never did before: I got a dole whip! People rave about Dole Whips but I have never had one so I used one of my many snack credits that was left and had an orange / vanilla twist dole whip in a cup.
We then had a fast pass for Buzz Lightyear. It was then time for me to have my last photo op with Peter Pan. I told Peter I had to leave and go act like a grown up at work again. Peter said the solution to that was I could live there instead. He even pointed out a tree I could live under by the Adventureland Veranda!
For lunch we ate at the Columbia Harbor House where I had the tuna sandwich, chips and peach cobbler. The sandwich was light which was good after a week of Disney eating. The cobbler was great but I can’t look at another dessert for at least a month.
We then had fast pass to see Tinker Bell who was extremely pleasant and she thought Peter’s idea was great and that I should live there under a tree. As we came out of Tinkerbell’s line we saw that a line was forming for Snow White. I asked the cast member if Dopey was coming out too and they said he did the last time and moments later Snow White walked out with Dopey! Talk about being at the right spot at the right time! So I got a picture with Snow White and Dopey!
Out last fast pass of the trip was to see Mickey Mouse which is always fun. I then went solo back to Storybook Circus and got photos with Goofy, Donald, Daisy and Minnie. All was great except as I approached Minnie there was no photographer and the cast member attendant was with Daisy. So I had to take a selfie. As I walked away I found the photographer standing in the hall with another cast member. I told them what happened and I got no reply. So I complained to the cast members at the entrance to the Storybook Circus and they apologized but did little else.
I then returned to Saratoga Springs as we had 4 snacks and 1 quick counter service left. We got Rice Krispie treats with the snacks as we could take them home and we split a cheese flatbread and yogurt for dinner. It was then time to head to the airport 😦
