Day 5 saw a return to Epcot.  The weather was much kinder and the number of people was a lot less than on previous days - so there was the prospect of a much better day, which indeed it was and Epcot still remains Yvonne's favourite park.
We started with a walk through the different countries area where a margarita added to Yvonne's enjoyment of the day and went on the rides in the Norway and Mexico section.  By now Steven was getting the hang of going on rides and was a bit keener.  In the England section we were given football (or should I say soccer!) results by the English assistant on the till in one of the shops - both Manchester United and Chelsea had been beaten by lesser teams, which got D excited!  Liverpool were to play tomorrow.  We then went to have our photo taken with Eeyore, Tigger and Pooh and Steven was very keen to start with and was all smiley, however as we approached and Yvonne gave Eeyore a hug, Steven became reluctant and eventually started to cry.  We gave it up as a bad job, but D gave Tigger a hooohooohoohoo as he left which got a thumbs up from Tigger!
We managed to see and do all of the things we wanted to at Epcot and finished the day sat in a clam to travel the Nemo and Friends ride which had some clever special effects which made Nemo swim with the real fish in the aquarium.  D and Yvonne were impressed!
The final day was spent at the Magic Kingdom which was less crowded than our previous visit which was a great relief.  Again, because of the more reasonable length of the queues, we managed to get on most of the things we wanted to do.  The only ride we gave a missed but wanted to go on was It's a Small World, partly because there were menacing looking clouds and partly because Steven wanted to have a swim.
We went on the Snow White ride (watching out for a certain crocodile which allegedly bit a certain nephew's leg 16 years ago!) and couldn't possibly leave without Steven's daily fix of water fun, this time in Ariel's grotto!  As we left we were looking at the menacing clouds and noticed a rainbow in the sky - a fitting finale a sentimental Yvonne thought.  A more cynical D thought it was only showing us where Disney's crock of gold could be found!
An early night for an early start for the final stages of journey to Miami airport and home we thought.  Steven had other ideas, and despite trying to wear him out by swimming (he progressed to swimming about in just his armbands for a while as there was another child of his age just in armbands!), he took a long, long time to get to sleep.  Typical!
A little treat at the end of the day was picking up an e-mail Mother's Day card from Jack....aaaahh, bless him!
