We had a great time and we went in all of these attractions. “Space Mountains” & “Tomorrowland Transit Authority” were temporarily closed. We had a short break for lunch (Subway) and ice cream/sundae at “Auntie Gracity’s Galactic Goodies”. The ice cream is magnifique! The strawberry barr is also delicious. Thank God that we had everything with us as lunch, bottles of water/juice and chips so that we could enjoy the whole day in the park.

Last but not least we saw the “SpectroMagic Night Parade”. Beautiful!

On the way to the hotel everybody is hungry! Fishburger (Elique’s favorite) of Burger King is ok (2 for $3). Hahahahaah!

Thank you God!
