Adventureland was the first stop on our circle around Magic Kingdom that day. We decided to FastPass the Jungle Cruise; so while we were waiting, we rode Pirates of the Caribbean and Magic Carpets of Aladdin. Emerson wasn't very fond of Pirates of the Caribbean, especially when we got stuck for about 3 minutes on the ride. Magic Carpets of Aladdin and Jungle Cruise were much more her speed.

Frontierland was right next to Adventureland so we headed that way but we didn't stay long. Frontierland didn't have much to offer for us. Danny and Dale did take advantage of a FastPass for Thunder Mountain, especially since they didn't get to ride Space Mountain the day before. We also got to do some shopping in Frontierland, each family bought momento Christmas ornaments for their tree. I did take a picture of the Haunted Mansion for Birdie, his favorite ride. While Danny and Dale rode Thunder Mountain, Amy and I took the girls back to Fantasyland to ride Cinderella's Carrousel and enjoy Mickey's PhilharMagic one more time. The guys met us back at Fantasyland for a much needed lunch break.

After the Tomorrowland Speedway, we decided to make our way back to the front of the Castle for the Dream Along with Mickey show. We decided that no trip to Disney World would be complete without ice cream. The girls got to enjoy their ice cream and then the show with full bellies.

After the show, we decided that Disney had gotten the best of us and we just didn't think we could make it for the intended 7pm SpectroMagic parade. We decided to call it a day (and a trip, at that) and head back to the condo. We coaxed the girls with one last stop at the souvenir store, and the promise of pizza and princess dress-up when we got back to the condo.
Our Favorites from the Day
Emerson was so tired the next morning that she fell asleep on our way to the airport. She was one tired girl!!

We were all very sad to leave Disney World. We had a great trip. The girls throughly enjoyed themselves and so did the adults. We were blessed to have great company the entire time with our travel companions. Ivie and Emerson got along great (for the most part) and will hopefully talk about this for a long time. We are so fortunate to have been able to go to Disney World and we hope we can go back one day. We had a magical time and I am sure we will be dusting off pixie dust for a long time!!!
