It doesn't fail to impress!

This is the one we've all been waiting for!

Crowds are much bigger than Thursday's.
Main Street was themed with pumpkins and orange orange, red foliage, and yes, the castle, magnificent

First up we did the Pirates of the Carribean ride which was really awesome. Its themed all the way through, nothing scary.
Did the Haunted Mansion ride - without Kirsten. Excellent again and quite funny in parts.
Its a Small World ride - very cute 😊
Buzz Lightyear - great fun, but the Toy Story shooting one was better. Graham won the challenge for this one.
Splash Mountain is out of action for maybe half a day 😞 but we have a fast pass for tomorrow)
Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade - just gorgeous. Glad we set up early for a good spot.

During lunch we managed to see part of a show held on the stage of the castle, its just so fabulous. The atmosphere is really is magical. And the shows and music just provides a wonderful atmosphere.

Jungle cruise - this was quite weak after having done the real safari the day before.
Monster's Inc show.
River boat cruise - nice as we needed to sit and chill for a bit.

Wait time for Haunted Mansion is low, so we decided to convince Kirsten to give it a go. She's in. She didn't like it 😞 Haunting things aren't her style.

We come out and decide to prepare for the Main Street Electrical Parade, which is the very last time ever they are going to hold it. It would appear we left that too late, can't find a spot anywhere. Have to make do. Fantastic!

Oh no - 10 mins to make our Fast Pass for Peter Pan's Flight - this was listed as the second most popular ride. Awesome, as we are now seeking a bit of a thrill. Can't miss this one. Made it! Here we go......oh 😞 aahhh, very cute but no thrill. Why do they line up for 90+mins for this?

Can't do anymore. heading home. Its nearly 10pm, we're heading home. We also score the wishes spectacular. Magic, magic place!

Getting out isn't so magic!

Another night, nearly midnight.....we're idiots. Will need a rest when we get home.
