Mom was armed with a very strict schedule to avoid long lines (thanks to MAXRIDE! Their motto is "More Magic. Less Wait!" And they aren't kidding!)
And by 7:49, we were already inside the park standing in line at the end of Main Street right in front of the castle, waiting for the rope to drop after the opening announcement!
After experiencing several attractions, it was time to change into PRINCESS gear and get in line to meet Rapunzel! So glad we got in line early! We got in line about 20 minutes before she arrived, and were the 4th in line to see her. When we left, it was a 90 minute wait!!!
Then it was off to Ariel's Grotto where we had a reservation for a
PRINCESS CHARACTER LUNCH!
The girls were overwhelmed with happiness, as they had the opportunity to meet FIVE different princesses during our meal!
|Ariel greets her guests at the bottom of the staircase|
|Ashley shows Princess Aurora her Princess Aurora Doll!|
|Posing with Princess Aurora (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty)|
|Ashley gives Briar Rose a kiss...she is her absolute FAVORITE princess!|
|Snow White comes next...|
|Then the lovely Cinderella...who was so very sweet! She even danced a little dance with our princesses!|
The whole experience was...MAGICAL! And oh-so-memorable!
And then...just when you thought it couldn't get any more exciting...we bumped into Princess TIANA on Main Street. And she took Elizabeth's hand and said, "Walk with me..." So she did!...
Elizabeth and Ashley could not believe their good fortune...and were quick to point out that "we've seen EVERY princess except for Jasmine!"
We even got a glimpse of Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto, and Goofy (or...as all loyal Disney Cast Members know them: the FAB FIVE!)
And then we ended the night with a fireworks spectacular...as only DISNEY can do! (Ashley slept through the entire fireworks show...but we're sure she would agree that it was fabulous!)
Magical Memories at the Happiest Place on Earth!
