Princesses For A Day…
...smiles and memories to last a lifetime.
You can’t walk into Disney World without hearing the word “Magical“! They are trying to incorporate the word Magical into their brand at Disney. And I tell you they truly succeed at this. From the moments BEFORE you enter the Disney World park, they builds suspense and anticipation…while you are just killing time waiting for the gates to open. Take a look:
That takes place everyday about 10 minutes before the park opens
Well would be more magical than for our two little Princesses to meet the real-live Disney Princesses? Yes, there is a ride for that!
So while we were not on time enough to get the Disney Fast Pass for this attraction we were able to race to the other side of the park the Magic Castle, where it all takes place.
Once there, we arranged for our little Princesses to get a room so one by one their adoring Disney Princesses could come by and greet their biggest fans.
Who do you think arrived first?
The shock or adrenaline of meeting the one and only Elsa and Anna was actually too much for little Skylar at first. She had a meltdown at meeting her favorite celebrity.
Dare I say Froze on the spot!
Dylan was able to compose herself for the task though as Elsa made her appearance:
The joy was evident when they both got to share hugs with their very favorite Princess Anna.
You could tell Princess Anna was equally thrilled!
Next came Rapunzel to meet our very own royalty. She bent down to humble herself before our girls:
Seizing the moment, I broke into my Smolder for Rapunzel:
You could tell she was curiously having fun with the idea but I could tell she had her mind on this guy…
Next, arriving at our Disney Princess Meet and Greet was none other than Cinderella!
Our girls were all smiles at meeting the one and only Cinderella.
Treated like royalty, they were presented with the Disney Glass Slipper Award for living their lives (and wardrobes) in “all things Disney”.
It was really a big deal! They were very excited!
Our girls never did get a chance to meet their first love in Princesses, Princess Ariel. I hear she was some where out to sea.
The Magic didn’t end with this Meet and Greet though!
When word got around the Magical Kingdom that our girls, were visiting for the first time, the cast from the Briar Patch tracked them down at a Magical Restaurant, the Crystal Palace.
(Folks, if you visit Disney World, Get the Meal Plan, I’ll explain later)
One by one the list of characters dropped by to say hello to our girls during dinner, including you know Pooh…..
And that was just dinner one night!
All in all, Disney World takes the art of ‘making dreams and magical wishes come true‘ an everyday evident. As you can see, our girls were nothing but smiles, thanks to Disney generosity and ingenuity.
Maybe the best example of Disney Magical genius came to life on our last day.
I guess everyone knows about the Frozen phenomenon that has entranced almost every female girl, ages 2 -22 on the planet. It has become a gold mine for its creators. Adding to that is the Frozen songs and soundtrack that most every girl in grade school and Junior High know by heart.
Does every child know these songs?
So what could be more Magical to a young girl than singing her favorite Frozen songs along with the Frozen Princesses? …at the top of her lungs
Would that not be Shangri La for any girl 2-10?
Well Disney took these ‘two great tastes that taste great together’ and made a show out of them in one of their less popular parks, Disney Hollywood Studios.
Do think it is hard to get a ticket for this one? Even the Fast Pass line took 20 minutes to get in.
But could anything be more memorable, more Magical then singing along with Elsa and Anna during their famous movie?
Look for the unbridled smiles on our girls and everyone else at the end of this one:
And our girls got to sing, and smile (did you see those smiles?) and feel like Princesses every day we were there!
You are Magical!
Great Disney tips. Thanks!! We’re going for the first time next week.
That is another great idea Aurora! A Princess pool party! What princess are you going to be? So you haven’t gotten tired of the Disney posts yet? I have one maybe two left in my noggin that I might get too. I hope you are doing good Princess Aurora! Thanks for dropping by!
Good Smolder there.
You did invited the Princesses to the new pool, right?
Nice to see the Disney vacation.
I think you’re right. The ease of reviewing the pictures will help them hold on to the memories. Or, as my husband likes to point out, even if they don’t remember specifics, they will have an over-all impression of having had a great childhood. That works too!
It was a wonderful time! looking forward to going back again! ..and submit you to more family photographs! 🙂 I hope you are doing great Lora! Thanks for dropping by!
Thanks Betsy. I was thinking about that as well as my own childhood memories. Do you think kids today will be able to hold on to more memories due to the greater exposure to pics, easy videos and social media, to an extent, than we did as kids? The pictures are much more accessible from cameras and social media and not stashed away in an old photo book. Not that any of that would have helped me and my memory! Hope you are doing well! thanks for dropping by!
How cute! Looks like you had a wonderful time!
So great. What wonderful memories you are building for your girls.
Good Point Natalie! Especially if you knew the very last thing we did was that Frozen Sing-a-long. But we had to leave to get back to Dylan’s last day of school (shhhh..that’s right we took her out of school to go there) but we promised them we would return. Come on and join us!
How did you manage to say to your girls it’s time to go home? I bet they wanted to stay there forever!
