Disney - 1 week in...

We've been busy hitting all the parks we haven't done since I last blogged. On Wednesday we went to Magic Kingdom. We got there as the park opened and followed the touring plan. The kids rode Space Mountain twice, then we hot-footed it over to the other side of the park (via the Snow White ride, which broke down while we were on it) and jumped on Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain with no waiting. Later we went back and did those again too. I'm sure it won't be the same next week so I'm glad we're making the most of it now.
This is us in Hollywood Studios. It seemed a bit busier here. Still, we got there as the park opened and I rushed straight over to Fastpass the Toy Story ride. The queue for the Fastpass was huge! We got an early return time though so it was worth it. And so was the ride. We definately want to go back and do that one again. It's a 3D shooting game ride. Excellent fun!

In Epcot we had dinner with Mickey Mouse. Pluto and Chip 'n' Dale were there too. The restaurant was The Garden Grill, which revolved, showing us scenes from the Living with the Land ride. It was an all you can eat three course meal. We were stuffed by the end. Mickey and his friends came round to our table three times. It was great.

We've also been to the other Disney water park Typhoon Lagoon. Me, Ellie and Carl went snorkelling in the Shark Reef. I didn't see any sharks but Carl and Ellie did. Caitlin whimped out so Adrienne went off to keep her company.

The girls had fun in the Big Wave pool. We also went on one of the best wet rides I've ever done - Crush 'n' Gusher. Its a water-coaster. There were three different tubes which shot you up and down and round corners really fast in an inflatable. Carl has video of me screaming all the way through one.
