Well despite my best efforts and 40spf the boys are nursing pink shoulders quote 'now I know why you make me wear suncream Mummy I just thought you were being mean' but they stuck their caps on backwards, turned up the collar on polo shirts and got on with it. Today we went to Animal Kingdom and it was just perfect. There is loads of shade and it just suited us fine to get out of the sun for a while. Got fabulously wet in the Kali River Rapids -twice- then got rainstorm wet in the afternoon so our feet have squelched all day,, all part of the fun and no complaints. I have to say the Fastpass works really well, Everest twice too - gosh that was fantastic, we did actually get a 3rd pass for 1840 but couldn't quite manage to walk back round to Asia again so gave them to another family when we bumped into them at the exit. Really enjoyed Dinosaur and was very surprised when the boys said they thought Kilimanjaro Safari was in their top 5 along with the various other rides they've tried in our 4 days here- it really was interesting and we got to see lots of animals. Had to bring out the ponchos in the afternoon so we looked particularly silly but then so did many other people so what the heck we're on holiday. Had a budget evening at home, extremely nutritious tea of corndogs!!! Do strawberries for dessert count as being a good mother?!!
Can I just say that freezing water and taking it to the parks was a fabulous idea I picked up from someone, it has really helped and saves an overdose of fizzy-related-excitement, goodness knows we're all hyper enough. Also I think I say Brazil and her 8 teenage girls at the Forbidden Journey- I could be wrong as we've never met but there was just something....of course my shy retiring family would not allow me to approach and ask so I shall never know unless our TRs coincide.
Well, off to bed early now as it's Magic Kingdom tomorrow and I'm determined to make rope drop - it's only a '7' on the crowds level so fingers crossed.
ps Continental were fine, all to time, no frills but perfectly acceptable.
pps no idea how we have got the sleep pattern sorted, hope we're as lucky on the way home
