Read about our previous day at Disney World here.
The final day of our Disney World vacation started with our much-anticipated breakfast at Be Our Guest. It did not disappoint! We had pre-ordered our food online, so there was not much of a wait for the food. Once it was delivered, everything that I tried was delicious. We ate in the West Wing and Turner really enjoyed seeing the magic rose. Even though it was breakfast time, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try “the grey stuff” cupcake. It really was delicious!
After breakfast, we met up with Rachel and her family to ride some roller coasters! Although Turner liked all of the non-thrill rides, his favorite thing to do definitely were the coasters, so we tried to do as many as we could. Between using our Fastpasses and just waiting in the standby line, we were able to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Big Thunder Mountain two times each that morning. We also rode the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction before deciding we would dodge the crowds and go back to our resort to hang out/rest/start packing. On our way out of the park (around lunchtime), we stumbled upon a parade, so we stopped for a few minutes to watch that. We also stopped by some shops on Main Street USA to grab some snacks/treats.
We came back to Magic Kingdom around 5 PM that evening for dinner and more fun! We had reservations at Liberty Tree Tavern, but on our way, we stopped by Gaston’s Tavern to get a Lefous’ Brew drink. I had heard mixed reviews about it, but I actually really enjoyed it! It was just a frozen/slushy apple juice with real whipped cream on top, but I thought it was really tasty and was a great appetizer before our big dinner. (We had skipped lunch!)
Dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern was good! It was a traditional family style Thanksgiving-type meal, and was far too much food for us! We left feeling stuffed, but decided to walk off the calories and squeeze in a few more attractions before the night was over. We rode Goofy’s Barnstormer, The Little Mermaid, and the tea cups. We also met Ariel in her grotto. At first I was a little puzzled by Ariel’s behavior because she seemed overly interested in our autograph book (instead of interacting with us), but then it finally dawned on me that she was in character and was “fascinated” by our book!
We finished the night by watching the fireworks at the castle at the “Happily Ever After” show. Our spots were at the back side of the castle, so we didn’t actually see the show, but the fireworks were amazing. The castle looked so beautiful when it was lit up, and it was a great way to end our Disney vacation!
