Post-GSC, Part II: More Magic Kingdom!

After Minnie and I took respective pictures of each other, I was approached and asked by the rest of the group (Amy, Heidi, Shari, and Liz) about what my plans were for the rest of the day. I said that other than doing my FP+ rides, just walking around and stretching out.

I was asked to join their group. I said yes.

How exciting is that?!

Lesson: you never know what a good deed will result in.

Now that I was the sixth member of the group, we all had buddies for rides. This included the Seven Dwarves Mine Ride (which we went on twice!), and the People Mover (which I had not been on before). I broke away for a brief moment to go to Splash Mountain, but it had technical difficulties. They were still upholding FPs for the rest of the day in case it started working again, which was wonderful. I went back and waited for our group at the Mine Ride.

While we were there, I was clued in to a surprise for Heidi (dinner at Be Our Guest!). I graciously accepted the offer and was totally in on the surprise. After the Mine Ride we all started chatting about food, and since New Fantasyland was right there, how we should head over and scrounge for food (all secretly knowing Be Our Guest was on the way). So we walked…kept walking…

Then turned around and yelled, “SURPRISE!”

Heidi was in total awe. It was an amazing moment.

Since I was the little stowaway, Minnie and I dashed over to the hostess stand and hoped that they could expand their reservation from five to six people. The hostess called in…

..and it was approved. Happy dances and high fives all around.

This was a definite highlight of the trip. The decor was breathtaking, the food amazing, and the grey stuff…it was delicious 🙂

After exiting Be Our Guest, we went back to the Mine Ride and rode it again! (Note: It’s super awesome at night!)

After this, I bid my new friends farewell and went back towards Splash Mountain, and it was working! I got in line immediately and…was in the very front seat.

(2014 was the front seat for Space Mountain. This year was Splash. I swear, Disney is trying to scare my fear of heights right out of me.)

About halfway through the ride, it stopped. And then the Wishes fireworks began. What a wonderful seat! I didn’t take a lot of pictures at this point, but I can attest to the fact that it was breathtaking.

That concludes my third Princess Half Weekend and second Glass Slipper Challenge! Thanks for reading 🙂
