Our plans started with one of Honey’s favorite lunches at Be Our Guest.
Afterwards we got a dessert Honey has been eyeing for some time now – the cupcake cups at the Cheshire Café. He was SO pleased to finally get one because they were sold out the last time he tried.
After wandering around Fantasyland for a bit, we did another thing Honey has wanted to do – take the Huck Finn over to Tom Sawyer Island. It seems like it’s rarely open when we are in the park… maybe because we go at off times of the year and off times of the day??
Nevertheless, it was a GOREOUS day and we had a lovely time.
What’s the first thing my kids and husband do when something says Keep Out? Try to get in, of course!
Now, we had the great fortune of spending more than an hour rocking on the dock overlooking Thunder Mountain. Honey even fell asleep! It felt like such a luxury!!!!
After hitting Splash Mountain and Thunder Mountain, we were off for MY dessert.
THE DOLE WHIP!!
We parked ourselves in one of the new parks around the castle hub and soaked up the sun. Again, it felt TOO luxurious!
Back at Animal Kingdom Lodge, we read books by the pool for the rest of the afternoon.
And, after “dinner” and cocktails at the Kilimanjaro Club, we were off to the airport.
Our flight got us into Atlanta around midnight. It was the most amazing and memorable trip. Truly.
Again, so many hugs, kisses and thanks go out to Mother and Daddy-O for keeping the littles so that we could get away. It was our first time leaving them for more than one night in seven years.
Happy 40 yEARS, Honey!!!!!!
