Now It's Time to Say Good-Bye :(

We decided our last day to get up early and get over to the Magic Kingdom for park opening plus we couldn't leave WDW without a picture of Amanda & I in the Dumbo car. Since Amanda's first visit to the Magic Kingdom, it's a tradition that we take a photo in the Dumbo car. Last year for Father's Day, she made me a DVD (set to music) of photos of her & I from birth to that point. The DVD ended with the photos of us in the Dumbo car from her visit until the visit we took in May, prior to Father's Day. There was NO way I was leaving FL (especially this year) without a photo.

We got inside the park, headed straight to Fantasyland for a Fast Pass for Peter Pan's Flight and then onto the Dumbo ride. We chose pink this trip, given that is Amanda's favorite color. For some reason, the car was malfunctioning, so at the end of the ride the castmember came over and gave us a Fast Pass for any ride in the park. We opted for Haunted Mansion!

We rode Peter Pan's Flight and then headed to Haunted Mansion. We presented our Fast Pass to the castmember and he had us enter thru the exit area and wait by the pet cemetery. While waiting, I was finally able to get a good shot of Mr. Toad in the pet cemetery. The castmember came out and escorted us to the ride thru the Servant's Quarters which was very cool.

After Haunted Mansion, we left the park to meet Terry and the Yezzi's one last in Downtown Disney before heading to the airport and heading home :( After some last minute shopping, we said our good-bye's and headed back to OKW for lunch one last time at Olivia's.

What a truly amazing trip and was so awesome to spend my birthday with Bob & Toni, Terry and the Yezzi's. Special Thanks to Anthony & the staff at OKW and Chris O. for everything. You guys are amazing! Appreciate all the phone calls and emails on my birthday from family and friends and can't wait to next summer when we return with Bob & Toni and Jimi & Kristen and Amanda's roommate Rachel. Hopefully we'll be able to talk more of the gang in coming :)

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!!
