So yes, Disney Day 3 needs to be a two parter. We had a BIG day, went to the Bippidi Boppidi Boutique AND lunch with all the princesses! Mommy's camera got a workout that day, so I thought I'd split it up to avoid picture overload.
Plus, Bippidi Bobbidi deserves it's own post. It was amazing.
Here are the girls in the morning, with it's-85-degrees-already-at-7am-lens-fog going on. But I don't care, I needed a shot of these beauties with their matching Tink shirts and crown headbands. I just love dressing up these little princesses! :)
Next, we headed over to the Castle Couture gift shop so Reilly could pick out a prize. (More on that prize later). She got sprinkled with Pixie Dust (aka glitter aka her new favorite substance in life), by the sweet man working there. Then we headed over to the Bippidi Boppidy Boutique which was actually inside Cinderella's Castle!
While we waited to get done, Reilly had to go to the bathroom. I asked the woman at the front where the closest bathroom was, and she directed us around the Carousel. As I headed out the door, the sweet sweet older "Fairy God Mother" as they call themselves, stopped us and said, "Wait! Follow me! Tell Barbara I'll be right back!" So Hubby took Reilly and followed her mysteriously, and I said, "Um..Barbara? She'll be right back." A few minutes later, Reilly came skipping back into the waiting area. The Fairy Godmother said, "Tell Mommy who you saw!". To which Reilly replied, "WE SAW THE REAL CINDERELLA!!!" That sweet woman took Reilly to the "real castle bathroom" (inside the Cinderella's Royal Table restaurant), and brought her past Cinderella, who waved and blew a kiss RIGHT to Reilly. Reilly thought it was just about the most magical thing ever that she saw Cinderella in her actual castle, and that she really blew a kiss to her. I was so grateful to that sweet woman, and wondered how many other little girls to does this for every day - absolutely making their day. Such a sweet woman.
We were so happy to be able to do this for our girl. And I can't wait till Reagan is old enough, and to see what they do with her curls. ;) (Even though, she's be totally content watching again, I think!) Reilly brings us so much joy every day, and is such a good girl most every day. We were so happy to bring her the biggest smiles we knew how at he tender little age. And some people will say (about the whole trip), that they won't remember it. And she might not. But that doesn't actually matter to me at all. She will have these pictures. She will have my words. And Hubby and I will have the memory of watching her sweet face in such utter joy and wonder. Which is a gift in itself.
