We began our second day as early as our first, but a little bit more rested--thanks to a full, good night's sleep. We packed some Pop Tarts, protein bars, and juice boxes and headed to the bus stop. As we walked out of our building, I had the girls stop for a picture in front of our resort.
These girls were ready to catch the bus! I let them wear their princess shirts since they were dining with the princesses that night, and they LOVED that!
When we got to Epcot we headed straight for the "The Seas with Nemo and Friends ride." This was one of our favorite pictures from the ride.
Afterward, we headed to the aquarium area to look at all the marine life while we waited for Turtle Talk with Crush.
I asked her if she wanted to get in his mouth. This was the look she gave me: yeah, right.
After meeting these characters, we headed over to use our FastPasses to ride Spaceship: Earth. On the way, we ran into Captain Hook and Mr. Smee, a random occurrence, we were told. So we stopped and had them sign our autograph. Ansley was hot and over it, so Addison handed her book to them as well.
Anyone who knows Addison knows that her first crush was on Mulan's "Captain."
Next we skipped through France and found Belle in her little town in a quiet village. She was my favorite of the 3 Belles we would see, and Addison was especially thrilled to find Belle in her blue dress carrying a book. I geeked out again a little bit to according to Patrick. ;)
Then we headed out to this beautiful spot for a couple of hours.
After our delicious meal, we avoided a brief rainstorm by riding Maelstrom. We loved the creepiness of it. ;) Afterward, we did a more leisurely tour of the countries while we waited for the Illuminate Fireworks show.
On our trip, the girls did FABULOUS, but with great fun comes great exhaustion and occasional--and thankfully brief--meltdowns. It was not rare to go from this:
After the fireworks show, we booked it to the bus stop to be well rested for Day 3--a return to the Magic Kingdom.
