I've been a Rapunzel gal for some time and have loved Alice since I can remember. But this weekend I saw the new Cinderella, and I have to say I'm a BIG BIG fan. Not only was it cinematically beautiful, but the message and the story of love was even more so. I highly recommend it to everyone!
PS: Plus, there's collaboration merchandise everywhere! ...if you're like me and now want to become Cinderella. :D
As all good stories do, my "ALL THE VISITORS" adventure had the sweetest ending: my favorite girl, my niece Katelyn, and my lovely parents were the last of my friends/family to join my at Walt Disney World!
To say it was magical is an understatement. We had so much fun, Katelyn was such a cutie, and I am constantly talking about out adventures together. I could probably write a book about it all, but I'll spare you on the words and just show you all (some ;P) of our photos.
Day Two, we woke up bright and early for a day that was part Animal Kingdom, part Epcot. Katelyn become a Wilderness Explorer (naturally! =P), loved seeing the "spiders in the rectangles" (AKA their protective boxes), said the tarantula was her favorite animal, and was an expert at looking for animals around the park. So proud! <3
Day Three was a big one: MAGIC KINGDOM! We got up early again and was there basically the whole day. We did do the highly suggest tip and went back to the resort mid-day to recharge and take naps...which is especially helpful when you have a 5-year-old. =P
Another favorite moment from the trip was watching Festival of Fantasy! First off, the little girl in the bottom left pictures was a new friend I made that didn't speak a LICK of English...but proceeded to speak in Portuguese anyways, ha! All she knew how to say was "HELLO!", which she (and Katelyn quickly joined in) would scream at the characters. It was hysterical! I don't know if I have ever laughed so much. Plus, Katelyn's reactions to the parade were adorable, especially when she saw "her favorite" Pluto! (And Aunt Brittany liked when Flynn and his boys gave them the smolder, oww oww! =P)
Also, every day both Mickey and his pals would bring Katelyn goodies. They were just SO excited to see her, they couldn't help to spoil her with all kinds of presents. She even got her very own Princess Sofia dress, which our housekeeper beautifully displayed. Katelyn loved it all! Here is a video of her opening up some of her goodies. =)
It was a whirlwind two week, but I am so happy that all those visitors came to have Disney adventures with me. Great memories were made and I was shown just how much I am a lucky gal. Can't wait for more visits in the future, like say a week or so. ;)
Once upon a time...
My family and I traveled to a far away place called Fantasyland. Birthday girl Caiden was invited to meet the princesses, as they heard news of her very special day. After traveling through the halls of Cinderella Castle, we finally joined four princesses, who were anticipating our visit all day. They all loved talking to both little Caiden and Keeghan, but Rapunzel was the most excited to meet the kiddos. It was the most magical moment of our very magical trip, and something we will never ever forget. Thank you Cinderella, Aurora, Snow White, and especially Rapunzel for such a lovely visit to Royal Princess Hall!
I call this set of photos as Conservations with Caiden. Haha, clearly you can see how much the princesses enjoyed talking to our little birthday princess! She is just so funny and so cute!!
Keeghan wanted to join in on the conversations too!
And I am going to end with my FAVORITE picture from our little princess pow-wow....
A permanent believer that "Adventure is out there" and a DAK girl for life!
