The Last Full Day at The World

I am once again choosing to skip a day.  I can tell you we went to Disney Hollywood Studios but since we split up and most of the pictures are of me looking silly on the rides......

According to my nifty Touring Plans App, Nov 9 was a good day to go to the Magic Kingdom.  As this was also our last full park day, it was a pretty good choice.  Disney had been doing previews for the New Fantasyland additions for about 3-4 weeks.  However, during our Rally they had somewhat limited who could and couldn't go in and what times you could.  However, we had bought Annual Passes due to the long time of our stay and the possiblity of returning.  The official website had an AP preview for this area but there had been problems.  We walked up to the Cast Members and asked about this.  They asked to see our passes and we where in.  Now I happen to know that many of the Rally attendees got in without APs, I don't think it was too hard to get in.

Beast's Castle










Gaston's Tavern in the village






They are not done in this area.  They are still working on the Dwarf's Mine Train Coaster.  It is not due to open for some time.



Now we are in the new Ariel area -















After riding Under the Sea, we headed over to Belle's Enchanted Tale -


This is an interactive experience.  Here is Shawn being a guard.  The kids were also chosen.



All those who participate get a bookmark and special photos with Belle.


We rode all the usual rides.  Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Buzz Lightyear, etc...

Then it was time.  Time to say goodbye to the Magic Kingdom.

The last boat ride back to the Fort.








We decided to eat our last dinner at the Trail End Restaurant at the Fort -





We then headed out to meet any rally attendees that showed up for the Campfire Singalong.  Parker was my bud, at least until the Autograph book debacle..... luckily Jason saved me just before I thought the tears would fall.....

And that folks ends our two weeks at the World and the TAC Rally.  I know it's a little light of rally photos but we learned something important here and during the planning of the rally.  With the cost of Disney, the size of Fort Wilderness, the abundance of things to do, the number of people bringing kids and grandkids to WDW.... a rally here has to be loosely planned and largely spontaneous.  I sincerely hope all had as much fun as we did.
