Florida & Disney World - Day 7

Warning: Theme park travelogue ahead. Proceed with caution!

We finally made it to the last of the Disney Parks here at Disneyworld.  Our first order of business was to head to the new Toy Story Mania ride.  The girls remembered this ride from California Adventureland and wanted to get on it again.

After that ride, we hit a few of the shows including Disney Jr. Live on Stage, Indiana Jones (pretty cool, which is my most vivid memory from my first visit to this park more than 20 years ago. I also remember we attended a taping of the game show Let's Make A Deal), the stunt driving show (awesome!), the Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.

The rides/attractions that we really enjoyed included Aerosmith's Rockin' Roller Coaster, The Tower of Terror (and I was glad that Ada decided to come on with me as she hasn't been on it for a few years.  She was scarred her first time) and Star Tours with both Ada and Kate.

We wrapped up our day with the backlot tram tour which Alison and I found to be pretty cool, but the girls were just begging to head back to the Honey I Shrunk the Kids play area.

Arguably, the highlight of the night was some real Chicago-famous deep dish pizza from Giordano's.  Giordano's has dozens of locations in Chicago and a couple in the Orlando area, one of which was nearly across the street from the hotel.  That is some good stuff.

Next up: One last visit to the Magic Kingdom and our flight home.
