Our last day at Disney was spent all day at Magic Kingdom (except for when we took a nap break). We had some fast passes that morning, but based on Ava's indifference to the rides, we decided not to worry about them unless she was persistent on going on them. We did venture our way to Dumbo and a few other rides, but we also had them dressed in their bathing suits and decided it would be a great day to let them run and play in the little splash park across from Dumbo. They had a blast and got super soaked! It was such a joy to just sit and watch them run around, giggles and all, and just have such a low-key fun time.
We ate lunch at the hotel and that was pure torture. Ava was horrible and I took her to the room to eat to preserve everyone elses sanity (except mine, of course).
We then took a nap and then headed back to Magic Kingdom. We shopped, ate dinner at Tony's and watched the Electrical Parade (twice!) and the fireworks and Ava kept shouting "More!!!!" We rode the carousel a few times that day and just enjoyed our last moments at the most magical place on earth.
I think if I learned anything at Disney on this particular trip is that with kids, it is best to just go with the flow and relax. Let them take the lead and try not to have to be in so much control. This was the first time I have gone to Disney and not made it my mission to ride everything at least twice, and honestly, it was a blast. I cannot wait to take them back there. Ava is already asking...
