. In the mean time we see some other shows that don't have queues and enjoy some lunch. Once our 70 minutes is up, we avoid the queues and jump onto the splash mountain ride and Arion is looking a little concerned as our boat shaped into a log makes it's way up the mountain. Arion confirms he is concerned because he doesn't want to get wet, but he does it anyway and we all have fun while getting wet on another 30 degree day. We head for fantasy land next which has as rides more suited for Lisiana such as Dumbo, Merry Go Rounds, Winne the Pooh and more, but we do them together as a family and have a ball. Next is Tomorrow land where we do more rides that are future themed like Buzz Lightyear, Monsters Inc, but Arion is focused on riding Space Mountain Roller coaster which Lisiana is not allowed to ride due to height restrictions. I decide to take him but am a bit afraid on whether he will be frightened as I can't remember what this ride is like. After waiting in line for about 30 mins, we jump on the roller coaster and the seats are in a single row, which means I can't sit next to Arion, when I tell him I can't sit next to him he is okay about it, which surprises me. We ride Space Mountain and it's mostly pitch black with the roller coaster zipping all over the place and Arion loved it. My little boy is growing up too fast. We find the girls, have some dinner and make our way back to the entrance of the park to catch our bus and there is a light parade happening down Main St which we view while walking. We catch our bus back to our resort as Lisiana sleeps the entire way.
As we eagerly rush to our resort bus stop this morning, a whole 5 minutes goes by before the Magic Kingdom bus arrives, which feels like 50 minutes for the kids as they're so excited. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the park and when we enter the gates the kids go crazy. I want a MIckey Lollipop, I want a Mini Cap, I want, I want and we're only at Main St entrance of the park. We buy the kids a Mickey and Mini cap with their names sown on the back, as it was something my parents did for me which I have fond memories of as a kid. It's crowded but bearable as we explore the Magic Kingdom, Arion is desperately requesting we go on a train roller coaster ride in the Frontier Land part of the park which has a western theme. He has seen this ride on the Disney DVD's we ordered months ago and can not wait anymore. We get in line and wait for about 30mins and it's finally our turn to jump on the train and both kids are giggling as the roller coaster zips around the mountain. It's close to lunch time and splash mountain is our next choice but it's a 70 minute wait so we decide to get a Fast Pass ticket, it allows us to come back in 70 minutes and skip the long waiting queue
