Day 3 – Last day and check-out. We checked out of the hotel and they stored our bags because we weren’t leaving until 3:45 for our flight. This was the day to finish everything up and ride some things that we wanted to ride again. Disneyland was really crowded on Monday. We wanted to use the early entry into Mickey’s Toon Town, but we didn’t get there early enough. It didn’t matter anyway because we were there at 10am for the opening. On the way back to Toon Town, we got our FP for Space Mountain and Autopia. Matterhorn was already crowded. In Toon Town we road Roger Rabbit, took pictures and went through Mickey’s house. I tried to leave in his car, but it wouldn’t go. After Toon Town we went to Frontierland. I wanted to ride the cruise ship, but they had the pirate ship operating at this time. We took the raft to Tom Sawyer Island and played around there. This was definitely for the kids, but we had fun! We headed back to Space Mountain only to find out it was shut down. We used our FP for Autopia instead. Once we got off Autopia, we noticed that Space Mountain was running again and it had an hour wait! Good thing we had our FP. We rode SM for the last time and then took the train from Tomorrowland to the front of DL. We saw the first 50 years show with Steve Martin and then headed to DCA to try to see the elusive Crush show. Once again, we didn’t make it. We also didn’t want to see the Muppet 3-D show since it was probably the same as Florida’s version. On our way back to the hotel, we rode Soarin’ one final time and then decided to wait at the hotel for our ride to the airport.
I am so glad we didn’t rent a car or have to drive anywhere because the ride to the airport was very long and the traffic sucked. We both fell asleep on the way.
Thanks for reading!
Lets take the fire engine back this morning.
Main Street, not looking too bad, but can you see the castle??

I thought I could get away in his car, but it wouldn't go anywhere...
I'm glad we rode Roger Rabbit on the way in because on our way out it was broke down.

Nice American Flag on the back
I know it looks like she is going to get wet, but she isn't even that close to it. This turned out to be a pretty cool picture when we got a chance to look at it.
A very. sturdy bridge on Tom Sawyer Island
Yep, I am walking backwards on this.
If you're not a kid, this island might make you into one.
If I was actually climbing the tree, I think I would break the branch.
Lunchtime at El Rancho's fountain

LOL, the sword story was funny! I really enjoyed your photo TR´s, Rick! It really looks like you had a great weekend there at DLR. Be sure to say hi at the German Pavilion, the next time you are at WDW! Or better let me know when you are visiting WDW, I really need to meet you! Please keep your nice Photo TR´s coming!
^^I am looking forward to meeting you too some day Soren. Maybe out here in Northern California. PGA and SFMW are my local parks.
^Thanks for the comments. It is a lot of fun putting these Trip Reports together and it's even better when I see a comment like that! I am glad that the report was good enough to make you feel that way.
When I read through it again, it is like re-living our vacation all over.
