We managed Astro Blasters, Nemo and the railroad before heading for the Haunted House – but that was closed due to a temporary technical hitch. I queued for Space Mountain using the fast pass system, whilst Paula waited patiently. Although it was a real thrill back in 1983 and scared Paula half to death in 1987, its appeal has faded. As a reward, for her, we went on her favourite – “Its a Small World”...
We nodded for a while and opted to not do anything else specific for the day.
There was a time that my favourite place to eat locally was “Tony Roma’s Ribs”. At around $26 for my main, we deleted that from our list of possible and ended up at – Denny’s! Not very exotic maybe, but at least the prices are very reasonable, especially compared to the other options and the food was fine.
We ambled back and watched the nightly Disney fireworks display from the kids pool area then bed at a respectable 11pm.
I didn’t bother with my favourite ride – Indiana Jones this time, but we did do the rather pathetic “Winnie the Pooh” kiddie ride (no wonder there was no queue...).
After a mediocre Disney breakfast (well, we needed something to eat), we did one or two more kiddie rides, the recently refurbished monorail and the much loved "Jungle Cruise" (complete with corny commentary of course), then we headed back to HoJo’s to relax before we got too tired, as we had plans for the evening.
No rush to get out of the hotel tomorrow, as check out is 12 noon - and even then, we’ll be able to safely store our luggage whilst we waste the day relaxing.
