Disney recap -- Thursday, Day 6:

Today we went back to Magic Kingdom after breakfast. I had promised J that we'd ride the train, and since we didn't get to that the first day this was 1st on our agenda. We got on the "WDW Railroad" and rode around to Mickey's Toontown Fair where we walked through all the houses (Mickey's, Minnie's, and Donald's boat) and then we rode Goofy's Barnstormer roller coaster. M chickened out and didn't ride, but J loved, loved, loved the roller coaster. She was beaming when we got off. The excitement on her face was the highlight of the trip for me. (look at this face below, seriously, this is the best)

We rode a bunch more rides -- Tomorrowland Indy Speedway (M is a horrible driver), Tomorrowland Transit Authority, Monster's Inc Laugh Floor, Jungle Cruise, The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Swiss Family Treehouse, Pirates of the Caribbean, Tom Sawyer Island, The Haunted Mansion, The Liberty Square Riverboat... basically we rode everything we hadn't ridden the day before plus we rod "It's a Small World" and watched the parade a second time. Then we camped out and watched the "Spectro Magic" parade -- where all the floats have lights which was very cool. We stayed around the part until it was time for the fireworks. We camped out in front of Cinderella's castle, so we got to watch Tinkerbell fly through the air (she slides down a wire from the castle with her wings all lit up to start the fireworks and J loved this), and the fireworks over the castle which were a big treat for the girls. This is the only night that we stayed at the park late enough to watch the fireworks so the were extra special to us all.

Today we ate all junk food -- corndogs, ice-cream, popcorn, pretzels, burgers, chicken nuggets... it was not healthy, but it was a treat. M reported a loose tooth, which I thought we'd loose on vacation, but it's still hanging in there.

Favorites from today:
M -- the fireworks and "Spectro Magic" parade
J -- Goofy's Barnstormer roller coaster
G -- he didn't say, but I'd guess the fireworks or parade also
B -- the fireworks
