We had to hurry after leaving Pirates in order to make it to our supper reservation on time. I had somehow managed to find a reservation for Be Our Guest, I was excited! My review can be found here.
After eating, you can stop to meet the Beast in his study on your way out. The Beast noticed my birthday pin, and tried to ask me how old I was, except he kept throwing his hands up in the air and Luke and I thought he was trying to “raise the roof”, so we joined in. He thought we were crazy…
The cast member standing by started laughing, and explained the Beast was trying to ask “how many” while pointing to me birthday pin. We all had a good laugh about that, and then ended up getting these pictures:
By the time we left the restaurant, it was already after 8. We had heard the fireworks going off while we were eating our dessert, so that threw a wrench in my plans to see the MK fireworks that night. Spoiler alert – we actually didn’t end up seeing them at any point during our vacation, so I guess that’ll need to become a priority for when we go back At some point while we were at supper, it had rained which cleared the park out a bit. The park was open until 9 that night, but there were extra magic hours until 11pm and we planned on taking advantage of that!
Over the next two hours, we managed to get so many rides in, all with minimal wait times. Of course we went to the Haunted Mansion (which we both LOVE!), Stitch’s Escape (which I thought had so much potential, but fell so flat), Big Thunder Mountain (one of my favourite Disney rides!), Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin (which I lost terribly at). Here’s our picture from that one, we were taking our mission of defeating Emperor Zurg very seriously…
I hate to do it again with comparing the parks, but the Buzz Lightyear ride is so much better at Disneyland! It’s so much easier to shoot accurately when you can lift the gun up.
We finished our night off at the Monster’s Inc Laugh Floor, which I actually enjoyed. It’s super lame humour, but I laughed like an idiot most of the way through. As we were leaving the park for the night, I stopped to snap these pictures:
There was a line of Photopass photographers extending down Main Street away from the castle, so we walked until we saw one with a short line before stopping for a bunch of these pictures:
As we were walking down Main Street, we heard music and actually got to see Tink fly over the castle to signal the park was closed for the night. When we got to our bus stop, we had to wait an agonizing 3 minutes for a bus to show up! Haha, I was so impressed by the Disney transportation service! After ~20-25 minutes, we were back at All Star Music and headed straight to bed (it was midnight by this point…). We needed to get some sleep, I had another busy day planned for us tomorrow (although the day had other plans for us…)
