Disney Day... what a day! We started out a bit slower than we wanted, mainly b/c our little two teeth girl was up most of the night so I slept in a bit later. The day couldn't have been more hot or humid but the girls held up really well.
We arrived on Main Street and right away Caileigh wanted to get Daisy Duck's autograph in her new autograph book. She gave Daisy a big hug and it was off to find more characters. We were walking around the back of Cinderella's castle and ran right into the Fairy Godmother!! Bibbidi Bobbidi Bo she said! Caileigh told her we were eating lunch with Cinderella.
Our first ride was Snow White's Scary Adventure--- not a good choice. All 4 of us went on it and 2 our of 4 started crying (hint, it wasn't John or I)! Ok so lets look for friendlier rides! Carousel, dumbo flying elephants and the best ride of all..."its a small world"! By far Caileigh's favorite (and the shortest line!), we rode it twice and she danced in the boat and sang the whole time.
We tried to get more autographs but the lines were too long and we had a date at the castle for lunch. So after a quick change, Caileigh turned into Princess Caileigh! And didn't everyone at the castle address her as such. And we were the Royal Family!! Well she was so excited to get dressed up - oh and the surprise today?? A perfect blue tiara and matching earrings! She loved them!
So we got to the Castle and went inside and THERE SHE WAS!! Cinderella all dressed in her gorgeous blue gown with blonde hair and gloves. Caileigh was so excited to see her, everyone commented how cute she was. And yes, I was crying. We got pictures and she signed her autograph book, and Caileigh showed her her bracelet and told her she saw her Fairy Godmother. It was all very exciting and then we went up the castle to the restaurant for lunch. Soon all the princesses came into the room and stopped at each table. First, Snow White, then Aurora, Belle and last Jasmine. Belle was especially cute b/c she held Keira in her lap and gave her a big kiss on her forehead! Keira just stared at her and the other Princesses the whole time. Caileigh was amazed but kept asking "when is Cinderella coming to lunch?" We had to explain she was the hostess and was greeting everyone downstairs.
So after lunch it was off to Mickey's Toontown to hopefully meet Mickey himself. Caileigh surprised everyone but going on her first rollercoaster - Goofy's Barnstormer! Then it was a quick change into her bathing suit to play in the water on Donald's boat and back over to Fantasyland for more rides. We didn't see Mickey b/c the wait was 90 minutes but that's ok b/c we rode the racing cars, Peter Pan's flight, and Poohs Adventure. By that time it was dinner and you could tell everyone was starting to peter out. Thankfully the sun went down and it was just humid but we were all pretty sticky! So after dinner we walked around a bit to see the castle changing colors. By now everyone was lining the streets for the big parade but we said goodbye to Disney and made our way home. It wasn't long before both girls were asleep. Caileigh did wake up when we got home and said she wanted to pray for Cinderella.
We got great pictures and video but I'm too tired to upload them exc. a few from my phone so will do some tomorrow!!
