Disney's still got it. Ben hasn't been back to Disneyland since he was 12 (he's 35) and I haven't been back since I was 20 and Disneyland still has the magic that I remember. We were so blessed because going to Disneyland is definitely not in our budget, but thankfully my cousin Jonathan works there and got us in and was our own personal Disney tour guide. It took the girls a bit of time as they are really shy (despite what pictures may show), but they warmed up to their Uncle Jonathan and we all had lots of fun together!
The girls lit up when we walked in, though I think they were going through sensory overload at the same time. They don't watch too much television and they haven't seen very many Disney movies, but they know enough to know who the main characters and princesses are. I think they were shocked seeing these creatures in real life and bigger than them!
A cute moment was when we were walking past the castle when True told me, "Mommy, my favorite is Snow White." But when we finally got in front of Snow White, True's shyness took over and she didn't want to go meet her. I figured we would just gaze from afar, then, all of a sudden, I look up and she's 3/4 of the way there to meet her by herself! True was both nervous and excited! She was absolutely delighted to meet her and take a picture with her (I think the picture shows her joy so perfectly!).
It was such a magical day and I was glad to spend it my prince and little princess', and even with our personal tour guide Jonathan.
Thank you Uncle Jonathan for their Minnie ears (we owe you!) and treating us to such a wonderfully magical place!
The weekend is upon us and it is Halloween weekend, so we will have a special treat for you sometime this weekend. Don't forget to check back. Have a good weekend friends!
p.s. The answer post will come soon, but keep your questions and suggestions coming if you have any!
