Our Honeymoon: The Final Chapter

Turns out recapping our honeymoon took a lot longer than I expected. I mean, we did a lot over 5 1/2 days and took a lot of pictures, but geez. 

I loved reliving our awesome vacation, but I'm glad to be able to blog about other stuff after this (that is, until our wedding pictures arrive...). I already have a few posts ready for later this week, so start following me now to catch all of the updates!

In case you need to catch up on any previous honeymoon posts, here's everything I've recapped so far:

With that, I give you the fourth and final chapter in what I will now refer to as The Great Honeymoon Recap.

Day Five: Part 2

After spending Friday morning at EPCOT, Drew and I decided to upgrade our tickets to park hoppers so we could hit up our favorite rides at Magic Kingdom again and have a chance to go on the rides we didn't have time for at the Halloween Party.

The first stop? The Haunted Mansion. Of course.
When we got off the ride there were a couple of Photopass ladies taking pictures by the carriage in front of the ride, so we hopped on in there for a shot. They took this "normal" picture...
And then this "scared" picture (the version they took is much better both because we look less ridiculous and they added a ghost into the shot).
We're attractive.
We spent most of the rest of the evening walking around and enjoying the rides (Jungle Cruise, Carousel of Progress... we're obviously really exciting people...).
I love this place.

Welcome Home
We even got to see our friend Sari who still works at the Magic Kingdom (she was the one who hooked us up with VIP seats for the Halloween Parade). It was so good to see a familiar face!

Day Six: The End

Saturday was our last day in Florida, but we ended up with plenty of time for fun since our bus to the airport wasn't until 4:00 pm.

Our big activity for the day was miniature golf, thanks to a coupon in our vacation package for one free adult admission.

Disney World has two mini golf courses: Fantasia Gardens and Winter Summerland. We opted for Fantasia Gardens to that we could try out Disney's toughest mini golf course, Fantasia Fairways.

The course is set up just like a regular golf course (in miniature, of course) with pars, sand traps, and insane frustration-inducing obstacles like this:
Needless to say, I had a frustrating experience.
Drew, on the other hand, rocked this course pretty well.
Our final scores were Kristy: 96 Drew: 77. Par for the course was 72. Seriously, this course was tough. Maybe next time we'll stick to something a little easier.

After mini-golfing we headed back to the French Quarter one last time to take pictures of the grounds and collect our bags for our trip home.

And that, my friends, was our honeymoon! We had so much fun and can't wait for our next trip back to Disney. Maybe for our anniversary?

I'll be back soon with some posts on our married life so far, and, as soon as we get our pictures from our photographer, a probably even more epic recap of our wedding.
