Everyone goes to Walt Disney World for different reasons – a good portion of our latest trip was spent pursuing Princesses. My 3 yr old daughter loves all the Disney Princesses and each evening dresses up as Aurora, Snow White, Cinderella, etc and sings and dances the evening away. When my wife and I told her we were going to Disney the excitment of seeing the princesses started long before we ever starting packing.
The day we leave the anticipation questions started – can we go to see the castle today; can I get my picture with Cinderella; will I be able to see Rappunzel and on and on. Not sure if these were better or worse than – Are we there yet?
We arrive at Bay Lake Tower, check in and off to the Magic Kingdom to pick up our annual passes. We enter the park, walk under the train station and out into what I call the town square and to the beginning of Main Street, USA. My 3 yr old daughter starts screaming, which caught the rest of the family especially my 11 yr old son totally off guard, because she was so excited to see Cinderella’s castle!! The next question, of course, was can we go see Cinderella?
Our next stop was to the town hall to see the Princesses, which surprisingly, only had a 20 minute wait! The excitement of my daughter was overflowing as she was finally going to see a real princess. The CM invited us in and my daughter takes off! After a short chase and explaining that we must wait for our turn; she finally gets to meet Aurora (she doesn’t call her Sleeping Beauty), Belle and Cinderella. Over the next 6 days, many hours were spent pursuing the princesses not only in the Magic Kingdom but also at EPCOT.
By the time our trip ended, she had seen, hugged, laughed and played with all the princess. So glad we are going back in January because she can’t wait to see them again.
I know many of you are asking – What did your 11 yr old son do while you pursued the princesses? Our local high school choir was at Walt Disney World that same time and he was able to run around with his cousin and other older friends.Share
