NOT the Happiest Place on Earth it claims to be...just ask E!~yep, that would be him in FULL MELTDOWN MODE while we were in line for Space Mountain. Upon ride entrance, it was posted as a 30 minute wait but turned out to be closer to 45. Regardless, E hit his limit at about the 20 minute mark...and for NO reason at all except that he didn't want to be there anymore...well I take that back...he DID want to be there, right ON the floor. He was COMPLETELY calm while laying on the (nasty, gross, dirty) floor, but when I went to pick him up....the kicking, wiggling & screaming began. And it was ugly. very, very, ugly indeed.~just to clarify...DisneyWorld is
~I'm glad it was dark/dim in there because I was probably turning 47 shades of red from sheer embarrassment & humiliation. The stares from everyone in line were nearly unbearable for me. I'm one who lets what others think really bother me and while I realize I will never see any of those people again, I was still quite upset about the crazy scene that my fabulous son was making!
~Dawn (AKA "the baby whisperer") was waiting in line with us and since she didn't want to ride she was able to take E out of line once we reached the point where the line opens up and allows you to do that...which seemed about 1000 miles away at the time. I have never felt a greater sense of relief in my life once he was out of line & no longer sprawled out on the floor.
Note: I went on this trip to WDW with plans to ride only 2-3 things and instead spend the majority of time on things E would enjoy...and after this experience in line, I really didn't care if I went on another single ride all weekend.
~Thankfully that was the ONLY time he had a full meltdown over the weekend.
~did I mention we are also struggling with him hitting these days? oh TWO is such a lovely age. please note the extreme sarcasm here.
~oh and here's hoping that age 3 is better than 2 as it's official....I'm signing up for the 2011 WDW Princess 1/2!!! Woohoo! Registration begins on May 1, 2010.
