So, we had just one more surprise for this kid on our Disney trip. Reservations are tough to get, but Lo and I had a super special girl-date breakfast inside Cinderella's castle with the princesses.
She couldn't believe we were going to eat inside of the big castle that you see at the beginning of all of the movies. Too. Cool.
Next up was Aurora (Sleeping Beauty.)
And Ariel (The Little Mermaid.)
And finally, Belle (Beauty and the Beast.)
The princesses were all so incredibly nice, and they all took their time to say 'hi' to us without being rushed one bit. Snow White asked Lo if she had seven dwarves living with her, Ariel said that Flounder had helped her collect shells for her necklace, and they all took time to take photos and give hugs and sign autographs. Their voices sounded exactly like the characters they portrayed. The whole experience was really sweet and a lot of fun.
And the food! There was so much of it and everything was delicious.
And I ordered the stuffed French toast with berries. It was awesome.
So yes, we absolutely loved our breakfast at Cinderella's royal table. It was such a special thing for the two of us to do together and I know I'll never forget it. I don't think Lo will, either!
** A quick note. For those of you reading (hi there!) who are planning a trip to Disney in the near future and may be first-timers like me, let me give you a heads up on the whole Cinderella dining thing! Reservations for this book up fast. You basically need to make a reservation online or on the phone 180 days out from the date you plan to be there. Not even kidding. 180 days. But it's definitely worth it if you can work it into your trip. Luckily, you can keep checking back for cancellations and there are lunches and dinners at the castle with the princesses, too. You can find lots more info here. :)
