We finally got up early this day in order to make it off the ship. Brooklyn had a sleepover with her new friend Chloe the night before. They did not get much sleep so it was a little hard to get them moving! =)
After a breakfast at Topsiders we left with our friends. After haggling with a few taxi drivers we decided to just walk into town. Half way through our walk we bought tickets for the hop on and off bus. The kids liked sitting on the top of the bus. After two stops we got off and went to the cable car up to the top of the mountain. Once to the top we rode the famous Madeira toboggans back down the mountain. Once down we had to catch a bus to get us back to the city center. Once the bus dropped us off we got back on to the hop on and off bus. We took about a 30 minute drive around Funchal. Our visit was during the flower festival. It was nice to see all of the flower displays while driving by on the bus.
Once the bus ride was over we walked back to the ship. There was a fort right before we boarded the ship that the kids walked to go explore. There was a very steep staircase leading to the top. When we were finished Madison took a tumble down these stairs backwards. It was so scary but luckily she only had a few bumps and bruises. I thought for sure we were headed to the emergency room!
After returning to the ship the girls went swimming and then came back to the room for a nap before Pirate Night.

The entertainment for the night was the new Alice movie in 3D in the Walt Disney Theatre. I did not like the movie at all. I actually left half way through because I felt like I was just wasting my time being in there. The girls watched the rest with grandma and then came back to the room to get ready for pirate night.

Pirate night is always amazing on the Disney Magic. The deck party is just a blast! This is the first time that Madison made it through the night and was able to see the fireworks. She was so happy. She said that she is going to nap a nap on pirate night every time! =)
