The Disney Princess Half Marathon trip – Monday/Tuesday

Monday nearly everyone took off for home. Meredith, Kayli, Doug and I headed for the Magic Kingdom since we hadn’t spent much time there yet.

Doug and I went on Splash mountain and got stuck! Right after the big hill! We were in our log boat for like 20 minutes!

But we got a free fast pass out of it! So that was good!

We had a nice lunch after Splash Mtn at Caseys with Meredith and Kayli. Corndog nuggets!

I think we went on some slow rides (PotC and Haunted Mansion) after and before heading back to the hotel for a rest, we managed Space Mountain.

Everyone headed back to the room for a nap, which ended up being extended because it started pouring! Finally once the rain stopped, we headed to Epcot for counter service Moroccan and then over to Magic Kingdom to meet Mel and her family.

I managed to get Cinderella’s horse on the carousel! (It’s the only one with a gold ribbon on the tail!)

We all also went on Space Mountain, which was fun. I was SO tired after that, that Doug and I headed back to the room. So we didn’t last through all the extra magic hours!

Tuesday morning, we said goodbye to the beach and the room:

We had the hotel hold our bags and headed off to Epcot. We fastpassed Test Track and then headed for lunch at Les Chefs de France.

Look who showed up at lunch!

The food was SO good but it was like three courses of cream! Doug and I shared the lobster bisque (and also a French Onion soup), I had the macaroni and cheese which was awesome,

And for dessert, we split the creme brulee!

Doug and I hung out by the other Polynesian pool for a little bit, before getting on our bus:

And that was our trip!

On the whole the weather was better than last year – it was cooler overall. And I thought the parks were way less crowded that last year too! I had such a fun trip – can’t wait for September, for the Tower of Terror ten miler!
