As soon as we got in the gates, Riley and Kaiya went off with Tiare to ride on Star Tours and get a fast pass for Space Mountain. GG, Mimi and I took the quints to Fantasyland. Our first ride was Snow White's Scary Adventure, which turned out to be a BAD idea! You would think that with a word like "scary" in the title, that I would clue in to the fact that the ride would be...SCARY, but somehow I missed that. Some of the kids had fun anyway, but Kaydence and Kassidy were terrified and did not want to go on anymore rides. I was thinking that it was going to be a looooong day if every ride was going to bring tears of fright!
Next we tried the carousel, which was not quite as scary, and then Peter Pan. By this time Riley, Kaiya and Tiare had caught up to us and we decided to try the least frightening ride we could think of.....It's a Small World! It did the trick, and even Kaydence took her hands away from her eyes by the end of the ride.
The rest of the day was spent packing in as many rides as possible. It was crowded, but most of the time we did not have to wait more than 30 minutes to get on a ride. The quints favorite ride was It's A Small World, which we rode on a couple of times. All the kids had the song memorized by the time we left and they still sing it DAILY at our house!
The longest line we waited in, was the line to see Micky Mouse. It was highly deceptive....we kept thinking that he was around the corner, only to be placed in another waiting room. Had we known how long the line really was, we probably wouldn't have done it, but by the time we figured it out, we had already invested enough time that we stuck it out!
After we got the kids to bed, we left Jayson in charge and headed out for a "girl's night" (I know that sounds terribly mean---"Hey honey, I know you didn't get to go with us to Disney, but now we want to ditch you and go get frozen yogurt without you", but he was pretty stressed about his work stuff and couldn't break away. He definitely deserves to be "Husband of the Year")
