We were all up and awake by 7.30 and down for breakfast by 8am. I would like to say we were bright eyed and bushy tailed, but that might be a slight exaggeration!! On the upside, once we told the children it was Disney day, they soon perked up and were ready to go. On the downside, it was drizzling!
So the shuttle bus took us into Disneyland and we headed for Thundermountain. Sadly, it was closed so we went straight on to Indian Jones. On the upside, most of us were tall enough to go on the ride. On the downside, it was raining now!
After Indiana Jones, we went over to the Pirates of the Carribbean ride and were delighted that everyone could get on this ride. On the downside, it was pouring!! We stopped for lunch and had pizza while enjoying some singing and drumming and then went on a Pinocchio tide and the Carousel, followed by the big one... Space Mountain! Apparently it was 'awesome'! On the downside, we were soaked. (But we didn't mind as it was so much fun!) After a quick trip to a Buzz Lightyear ride and It's a Small World, we went back to the hotel to have dinner and get changed.
After dinner we had a rest in our rooms to warm up and dry out before heading back down to Disney village for a bit of shopping. The children were brilliant at working out how much money they had to spend and what they could get for the amount of money they had - an excellent maths challenge!! They also showed their kindness and thoughtfulness for their families as they bought pressies for family back home. On the downside, we were all exhausted and had sore legs and feet as we walked round the shops. Some children were complaining as much as the teachers were but we didn't let that stop us from shopping! So it is now 12.30 and everyone is tucked up in bed. We can't wait until tomorrow!!! Two children are also wondering if the tooth fairy will come tonight! We will have to wait and see!!
