Our day started with a wake up call from Mickey Mouse! Just analyze this picture for a minute. Look who is in his pajamas and still sleepy and look who is already up and dressed for the day. Do you think someone was excited because it was her birthday?
Here are a few clips from the opening.
First glimpse of Cinderella's castle
The family in front of Cinderella's castle. Classic.
When each guest arrives they receive a wishing star, a poster signed by all of the princesses, and each little girl receives a wand and each little boy gets a sword. Then they do a wishing ceremony. It is too long to describe, but here is Bennett making a wish on her star.
Then the princesses come in one by one. They introduce each of them by telling their story and then their individual theme music plays. I had to video Bennett when Ariel was introduced. I didn't get
a shot of Ariel, but Bennett's reaction was priceless.
First to our table was Jasmine.
Read this link if you get a chance. It's worth it. I will say thought that I had made 2 reservations for dinner here but cancelled them due to cost. The woman ringing us up looked at me like I was crazy and told me I could have sold them online for a profit. Who knew? Here is my family in the castle. It was so dimly lit that we couldn't get a good one, but we tried.
I had to go feed Lainey but the rest got a group shot with Merida.
And the show as pretty incredible too!
And the kids favorite ride of the whole trip. Goofy's Barnstormer. Will liked it better than Bennett but she came around and admitted that she wasn't too scared. And this was actually the one ride of the whole trip that Lainey couldn't ride. Of course we skipped most of the thrill rides, but this was the only time the whole week that either Rob or I had to wait at the bottom with Lainey.
