I know these posts are getting a bit long so I’ll try to summarize a bit more and head straight to the pics. Our forth day started with a quick breakfast at the cafe at the GF and then straight over to the Magic Kingdom via the monorail. Before hitting the pool the night before we had gone down to Downtown Disney where the girls had picked out princess attire to go with the surprise we had for this the next morning. The girls had a princess makeover appointment at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Cinderella’s castle in the Magic Kingdom. They both had their hair and makeup done and when they were finished were perfectly princessed up.
They spent the rest of the morning riding the rides near the castle and I met the girls, Anita, and Sue there just before lunch. We were dining with the other Disney Princesses at Cinderella’s Royal Table. It’s fun, they take your picture, the princesses all come around again, and lunch is actually really good. Our waiter was married to the pastry chef who came up with out desert which was a chocolate/cream cheese molten cake thing – very good despite the long description. After lunch the girls changed out of the costumes and honestly I have no idea how they made it that long in them – no more rain but lots of humidity and heat. Then it was off to Tomorrow Land.
We hit the Monster’s Inc Laugh Floor, the Carousel of Progress (that one was just Anita and I – loved how the future got stuck in 1984!), and the People Mover. On our way over to Frontier Land we ran into Princess Tiana and snagged some pics before catching a ride with Captain Jack Sparrow! Yo ho, yo ho, it’s a pirate’s life for me! Then it was time for dinner at the Liberty Tree Tavern – family style American favorites – smoked turkey, flank steak, ham, mmmmmmm. Then Syd took her first ride through the revamp Haunted Mansion. She was a little wigged out at first but once the ride started she got a kick out of it and was in no way afraid of it at all once we were done – according to her of course. Since Space Mountain’s line was miles long the first time we decided to catch it on the way out with a Fast Pass but when we go there they were having technical difficulties. So we rode the People Mover like 5 times in a row and when we went thru Space Mountain on the Mover – the lights were on! Pictures below. We waited as long as we could but once the fireworks were done and the ride was still down we called it a night. For some reason there were HUGE crowds at the Magic Kingdom that night and it took so long for us to get out that we got another behind the scenes peak when they let some us walk out back stage – behind Main Street USA. Nothing too glamorous – mostly delivery docks and cast member entrances – but still cool. Then it was back to the hotel to throw the girls around in the pool a bit.
