We were those people at Disney who didn’t follow the rules today! There weren’t good directions about where to park so we ended up parking where we normally do, while everybody else was heading off to a distant parking lot. I checked out the nearby parked cars to make sure there wasn’t something specifically on each of theirs, and we look to be in the clear. I guess we’ll see when we get back!
I went through the bag line and the boys went around and waited for me; seems like there’s a big crowd today. I headed straight to get a DAS for Test Track while the boys waited to meet me at Soarin. When I asked for a DAS the guy knew which people were going on the ride and I finally realized that it’s because there are only three of us in the park; they know that because we scanned our bands at the front gate. When I asked him if that was how he knew he said no, he could just read minds and he knew which people I wanted to go on the ride. He made me laugh so much! Then as I turned away and was telling him I wish I knew how to read minds I ran into a woman who’d pushed her stroller about 2″ from my leg. I wish I had read her mind!
We rode Soarin and The Land, and then at 12:30 the boys and I parted ways.
I gave Max $20 for ice cream for each of them and a Coke to split. I walked around a bit and then got a Coke Zero and asked in Germany about the mac and cheese. When they said it was on the crispy side I walked to the nearby stand and got the fondue. I was sitting there having a nice, quiet time eating and looking at the lake when Max called me for help. They hadn’t gone any farther than the ice cream shop, but their ice cream was melting all over the place and was making a huge mess! Heh. I walked less than a minute to where they were and Jack was just covered, it had dripped all down his shirt and is all over his shoes. I sent Max to a nearby restroom to clean himself up and then I used all my wetties to wipe Jack down enough that he could finish his ice cream. Max came back calmed down and ate the rest of his super melty ice cream. He’d asked for cups thinking that they’d be neater, but you know how they overfill ice cream cups, and how fast ice cream melts in the heat!
We all finished eating and then I sent them off to the Ralph playground while I walked through the Norway and Mexico lands.
When it was time we rode Test Track and then skipped our Spaceship Earth fast pass and went home. I made us a big kale salad with avocado and garbanzos and a lot of other stuff.
