Disney Day 9 - Magic Kingdom & Good Bye

Saturday morning we were up early for our last day at Disney.  Always a sad day when you have to leave Disney.  Thankfully we had one last fun morning planned.  We packed up and checked out of our hotel.  We had planned to have breakfast at the Crystal Palace early before the park opened up.  It was awesome because we got to walk down Main Street with almost no one else.  It makes for some amazing pictures!

 After all the pictures we headed over for our breakfast.
 It was nice to have a relaxing breakfast to end the trip.  The food was good breakfast buffet food.
 The kids enjoyed getting to meet all of the Pooh characters.

 We finished up breakfast a little after the park opened.  We had told the kids they could pick whatever they wanted to do during the morning.  We rode Peter Pan with Fastpasses and then headed over to take one last ride on the Barnstormer and Dumbo.

 Ben wanted to play some Sorcerers.  He did a great job all week of defeating the villains and obtaining gold level.

 We got to take another couple of rides on the Mine Train with fastpasses.  The second time Ben actually put his hands up.  Proud of him for conquering his fears and actually enjoying some of the thrill rides during the week.  

 One last ride on Small World.  I have had my fill of Small World for quite a while!
 Kate and I did some more shopping.  We got some Christmas ornaments and she got some princess Mickey ears.
 We headed over to Tomorrowland to take a ride on the People Mover and play a last round on Buzz.

 We needed to use up a few more food credits so we grabbed lunch at Pinocchio Village Has.  It was fun to eat overlooking the Small World ride.  
 It was then time to head out.  You can tell by everyone's face that no one was excited about leaving.
Well, that is it!  It truly was an amazingly magical trip.  We loved every minute of it.  Yes it was hot at times and the crowds were pretty crazy and we were tired BUT it was still wonderful.  We are so thankful for the opportunity to get to go spend such a fun time with family and friends.

16 months ago when my dad was diagnosed with cancer one of my first thoughts was "he won't get to go to Disney World with my kids."  Not sure why that was so hard for me but it was.  Well, little did we know what amazing things God was going to orchestrate to allow us to have a trip of a lifetime.  I am so thankful for the time we got to spend having fun together!
