WDW day two

Hotter than yesterday, I actually broke down and bought one of those shpritzy fans.

We did Snow White's Scary Adventure (all), Dumbo (MM & me. Boy Howdy does that MM ever like heights!), Winnie the Pooh (MM & MS), met Tigger, played in the Pooh playground, met Ariel, played in the fountain there, Peter Pan's Flight, lunch, Haunted Mansion (mistake...nightmares), Merry-go-round, and finally Mickey's Philharmagic (excellent! really the best thing of the day aside from meeting Ariel).

Then we came home and took a short nap (interrupted by said nightmare), ate a popsicle, went to the pool, and went to dinner. MM was in bed by 8:00 but was still awake at 8:40 because of "scary eyes" he kept seeing. He was sound asleep at 8:45 after I promised to come to bed by 10:00 and turned the clock to face him. Please note, I have not kept my promise but I will go to bed after I finish typing this.

So WDW tip #4: don't assume that just because your 4-year-old loves Snow White's scary adventure and loves the scary parts of both the Snow White movie and the Curse of the WereRabbit, that he is ready for The Haunted Mansion.

Yeah, that Mansion can still give me the creeps, but I LOVE it.

Isn't Phiharmagic wonderful? We saw it a couple of times the last time we were there. The music is fantastic.

Loving these posts... I'm ready to take the kiddos back down.

Sorry about MM's nightmares! That's great that he wasn't freaked out by Snow White, though. You can tell him *I* was, so he's much braver than I am.

And isn't the Pooh playground wonderful? We had so much fun just hanging out there.

Now I'll notice you have not yet listed the Country Bear Jamboree. If you go, you'll have to tell me what MM thought. AB loved it and started to fuss when we told him 2 times was enough.

Sounds like so much fun!! (Except for the Haunted Mansion) Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.

Aw, poor MM! I'm sure it'll be a long lost memory once he sees more fun stuff!

Have fun! We miss you!

Awww, sorry it scared him, but I hope you're all having a wonderful time today!

Offspring was terrified of the Haunted Mansion when she was small. We told her many times that it was all pretend, and even showed her some of those Disney "behind the scenes" shows where they talked about how they do the "tricks" of the ghosts in HM. I know it won't help him now, but tell him that you don't ever have to go there again.
