Day 5: Hollywood Studios
Got to the park and went to sign the kids up for Jedi training. Went to the Indiana Jones show, rode a few rides and then it started DOWNPOURING. Luckily we were close to our lunch reservations at the Disney Junior lunch. It was fine but was our least favorite character meal. They just weren't rotating well and we had to ask the manager to have them come around because we'd been there an hour and it was time to go to Jedi training.
We rushed out of there and ran, literally, to Jedi training. The kids checked in and got in line for their robes.

Learning Jedi skills!
|Ready for Darth Vader? I know a little girl who is about to make a swift exit (blondie in the middle)|
Tyson defeats Vader!
|They all defeated Darth Vader! And none switched to the dark side.|
|Still unsure of what happened up there with that big dude in black with the mask.|
Day 6: Typhoon Lagoon
Awesome water park. Hailey pooped out around lunch time so Daddy took her back to the hotel while Mommy and Tyson stayed and got our butts whipped by the tidal wave pool. I'm not sure that should be legal... luckily I made Tyson wear a life jacket before we went in and I might have needed to also! Sheesh! Fun but after about 6 strong tidal waves we'd had enough. Also - this was the first day all week that the sun was out, so EVERYONE was at the water park. We eventually headed back. Daddy asked if we could try one more time to find lovey, so I called the front desk. No luck. They were very sympathetic, and told me she could pick a similar lovey from the gift shop, and they'd comp it. Instead of that, I figured I'd walk up to the front desk in case that would make someone look a little harder. Guess what... they were pretty sure they had FOUND IT!! They said a manager would be bringing it to our room "shortly." We were planning on leaving in about an hour to head to magic kingdom, so no problem!
It was almost time to go and Daddy made a good point - we shouldn't leave until they bring it. What if they need someone there to receive it and agree it's the right item? So about 2 minutes before we wanted to leave... KNOCK KNOCK!!! The manager was standing there and she had HAILEY'S LOVEY!!! NO WAY!!! Daddy and I were so happy and relieved. I don't think Hailey realized how lucky she was to actually get it back. Thank you Disney!
We headed to Magic Kingdom with plans of riding a few things we'd missed the other days and watching the light parade/ fireworks. We made it to the Toy Story ride again, the orbiter way up high, the carousel (Hailey had been coveting a ride on it all week), got some snacks and headed to the castle.
The next morning was our last day. We packed our things and checked our bags at the hotel, then headed to Epcot to ride Test Track. We made it through this time without it breaking!! It was a fun ride. We ate lunch at the aquarium and then rode the ride inside the big silver ball (can you tell I'm tired and trying to finish this?), then went back to the hotel and headed to the airport! I have all kinds of pictures from Disney but I won't put you all through any more for now! Thank you Disney! What a fun trip!
