Thanksgiving at Disney - Saturday

We were blessed with great weather our entire trip. And Saturday was extra sunny as we ventured over to Epcot. It was another late morning, so the kids took advantage of one more Animation Academy class before heading out.

Thanksgiving at Disney - Friday

I anticipated Magic Kingdom would be crazy busy, so I scheduled some down time for the morning. The DH and the kids hung by the pool - Art of Animation's main pool is the largest pool on Disney property - while I attended another Animation Academy class. Check out my Goofy!

But it was so wild, you could not take two steps forward without trampling someone in any direction. Still, we had a fun-filled day. 
Highlights include: Festival of Fantasy Parade - we had a prime viewing spot near the train stationMove It! Shake It! Dance & Play It! Street Party (which sadly ended 12/1 but will be replaced by a new dance party early 2019)Riding Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (which broke down twice while we were in line)Dinner at Be Our GuestLantern photo shoot by Rapunzel's Tower
