And so the saga must end

And now for the conclusion of the The Mellon Disney Chronicles. There isn't a whole lot to say about the last day, but I was feeling better so at least there are more pictures to make up for the lack of snappy dialog.

We started by having breakfast with JoJo and the Little Einstein characters. Now, if you know who these giant-headed beings posing with my kid are then you must have a kid under 5 who watches a lot of the Disney Channel. If you don't know who they are--count your blessings. I'd elaborate on how much Chase enjoyed these encounters, but I'm pretty sure that the pictures are self evident.

After chowing down, we walked around the park a little bit catching pieces of the High School Musical II show. You may remember the picture of Chase carrying his monkey from an earlier post, but it's one of my favorites and I'm sure you don't mind seeing it again.

Soon it was time to catch a soft showing of the Disney Playhouse show. Soft because it was a rehearsal as the official opening of the show wasn't until later in the week. This show is perfect for the under 5 group because it incorporates characters from all of their favorite Disney shows: Mickey and gang, Handy Manny, Little Einsteins etc. Chase was really excited at the beginning, but it wasn't long before I saw him rubbing his eyes and yawning. By the end of the show he was cranky and whiny, so we scooted out of there early and headed back to the hotel for a nap. Just too much excitement for the little guy that morning.

After naps, we went to the pool for a bit.

Then we headed to Downtown Disney for dinner at Earl of Sandwich. Probably Drew's favorite part of the trip...he had to try really hard to refrain from getting a second sandwich. We saw some lego creations, Drew lost his sunglasses, I went to the World of Memories store for some scrappy goodness, and then went to the large toy store where we were big spenders: $5.95 on a trinket toy phone. And there were no pictures taken here either. What can I say, I think we'd all had enough of our disney trip by then...which was perfect timing considering we were due to fly out the next morning.
