I highly recommend Disney this time of year. It was not all that crowded and the temperature topped out in the upper 70's most days. Below you will find some of our favorite moments... some awesome, some not so awesome and some that were just weird.
Like Epcot...the park itself is beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed the sights.
The girls were afraid of Aladdin (and they are not afraid of anything)...but can you blame them? He almost didn't look human.
Loved the Tower of Terror. We could all ride, it was thrilling for everyone, and no one got off wounded with whiplash.
Loved the Lion King performance...all but this strange guy that stared at me throughout the entire performance and kept winking. At the point that I figured it couldn't get anymore awkward and weird, I just started taking his picture.
Oh the junk food we ate.
Okay, I just have to say a few things about the world of princesses in Disney World. I know that I am treading on thin ice with such a topic, as who doesn't adore the Disney Princess. Please know that I am right there with ya, I have always loved all the princesses. Let me repeat, I love them all and can only imagine that their job probably gets a little old at times; but I must say that some of them have developed a very unflattering demeanor of "snob" since I last visited them in Florida. Maybe it's the heat and the crowds...the combination of those two things can wear on the best of us; but Cinderella actually called out my Caroline on the red carpet for picking her nose. I do indeed understand that Caroline wasn't displaying her princess manners, and that Cinderella probably just didn't want Caroline to wipe something unpleasant on her dress. But seriously, need we call such negative, embarrassing attention to the child that has been anticipating this moment for days now? Miss High and Mighty Cinderella is lucky that Miss Caroline's Momma did not encourage her to use that lovely blue gown she was wearing as a tissue...and that's all I have to say about that. Did I go to far? Hate me if you must, just trying to keep it real.
Making wishes at the castle...
Wow, seriously Jasmine. I had no words then and I have no words now.
The fireworks were lovely...
There were a few sad moments...
But then Belle appeared to fix them....she was kinder than some of her other royal friends.
And then the finale, our favorite, Ariel. Though she was 12, she was a dream...kind, sweet, and totally worth the 35 minute wait.
