This was our first full day at Disney, and man was it jam-packed! We squeezed a lot of fun into our days on this trip, while making sure the chickies still had their beauty rest. ;)
We got up early for our 7:40 reservation at Chef Mickey's! Reagan was ready to roll, in her Minnie gear.
After our first trip to the Magic Kingdom, Reilly was asking and asking when she was going to meet the princesses. So we knew it had to be our first stop on Tuesday morning! We went straight to Fast-Pass the Ariel ride (which had the longest wait in the park every day, being the newest ride - 80-90 minutes by peak time!), and went right on line to meet her at her grotto. I brought Reilly's Ariel shirt that I made her for her birthday so she could be in her full gear to meet her favorite lady. :)
We caught these ladies singing and dancing outside Belle's castle, and Reilly thought they were royalty and needed to go meet them. They were so sweet!
This brought us to about noon - and with 2 very hot, very sleepy babes. They still hadn't caught up from our travel day the day before. We knew up front that we would have to go with the flow on this trip, and not push the girls too far. So we took their cue and headed back to the hotel for naptime and some air conditioning, while Grandma and Grandpa stayed on in the park for a while.
Before we left the park, we of course had to get some ice cream from the shop on Main Street. It was so sweltering, that the ice cream started melting before we even left the shop. Like, dripping all over our hands and turning to soup in 60 seconds! I couldn't believe it. It didn't affect anyone's fun though, Reilly still loved her Mickey cone. We also got a really cute family picture in front of the castle, where Reagan gave her cheese face! You could tell how drenched and hot we all are, which is part of the memory. :)
We had a "photo shoot" and a dance party while we waited for our table at the Prime Time Cafe. Who needs an iphone - never underestimate the distracting capabilities of a camera. :)
Reagan wanted to join in on the fun!
