What a fantastical morning for you and Arianna. The pictures of her with Cinderella and the wishing star are my favorites.

Oh, and the one of her waiting for the princesses. She looks like quite the grown up young lady.

Great update!!

Doesn't it always seem when you have everything planned out that something pops up and puts a kink in your plans? I'm glad you were able to get everything taken care of at Pop and still make it in time for your ADR at CRT!! (and with time to spare!!Wow!)

Love all the pictures in front of the castle with Ariana. Especially the one with her hands up and her "I'm here" pose! Great idea!!

I've never been to CRT and with two boys I'm not sure if I'm going to make it anytime soon. But....it looks beautiful inside and it looks like you had a wonderful breakfast--everything looks so yummy!!! What a beautiful picture of Ariana and Cinderella!!

Looking forward to more........

SIGH!!!!! TO be the mother of girls!!! You are sooo lucky!!! I am counting on my boys behaving like princes when we go to CRT! But boy I tell you, it was so fun to read your description on this morning with your daughter, and how excited and clearly joyful she is having this time at the castle with you and the princesses!!! It is clear from the inside! How great. I don't like your ominous last words, though??!! Hope nothing bad happened!! I will be waiting to see!

Ariana looks blissed out...-very special idea to do a mom-daughter breakfast at CRT...it looks wonderful...

That is a lovely photo of Ariana with Cinderella...what a lovely memory-although you know my fav princess is SW like Ariana-I guess having a Princess breakfast at the Dwarf's cottage wouldn't have the same cachet to it...

BTW your photos of Pop are amazing...I love all of them but especially of Baloo and Mowgli (sp?)-Baloo is one of DD's favorite characters...I had no idea they were there...That really looks like it would be a fun place to stay...

Bring it...

Hello...I stumbled across your TR from someone else's TR and I am loving it already. You have a beautiful family and I can't wait to read more about your trip. I loved the photo scavenger hunt you guys did, such a cool idea. I love taking pictures too. Do you make amazing scrapbooks with all your Disney pictures???

I loved the part of you and your DD going to CRT for breakfast. One of these days I will have to try and take my DD.

Okay so looking forward to more!!

Hey, sorry I am late. But I am here now and all caught up.

I love the scavenger hunt, how come I dont have brilliant ideas like that? Love the pictures of Pop, we stayed there in 2005 and I had forgotten how much I loved all the vibrant colors.

I think your breakfast with Ariana looked like a wonderful experience just for the two of you. She has good taste in Princesses cause Snow White is my favorite too.

Cant wait to read more, maybe this will get my sluggish butt in the mood to do my trip report. LOL!!

We broke into partners, boys versus girls, and the rules were simple. Each team had a list and a camera and you had to find and take pictures of each partner with as many items as you could. The team back to the room in one hour with the most items found, wins!
Just started reading your TR and am totaling enjoying it. Love the idea of the photo scavenger hunt. Where did you find how to do it?

I'm pretty sure that was her! My, but was she beautiful that day!

I just skimmed all my CRT pictures (all 200 of them)....put on my camera they were pointed mostly towards the window....I'm gonna look through my mom's and my sisters now since they were sitting on the other end, they may have shot some pictures your direction.
Yay!

That was the other picture that I was pointing out to George with a big smile I on my face. She's grown quite a bit this past year, maturity wise and height too - she's almost taller than I am now!

She was so excited for this morning and it was so nice to have time with just her and I. I wasn't having to shush a figety four year old or entertain an embarrassed fourteen year old. We could just enjoy the princesses!

It was a bit of a nail biter for a bit there but once I saw those express signs.... whew!

Love all the pictures in front of the castle with Ariana. Especially the one with her hands up and her "I'm here" pose! Great idea!!

I actually blatantly robbed that "I'm here" pose from another couple that had just done it themselves! The lady looked over at me when I told Ariana to "do that too!" and she gave me a thumbs up.

I've never been to CRT and with two boys I'm not sure if I'm going to make it anytime soon. But....it looks beautiful inside and it looks like you had a wonderful breakfast--everything looks so yummy!!! What a beautiful picture of Ariana and Cinderella!!

Mmmmm, yes it is princess heavy! The boys get swords to play with and I could totally see Demetri flirting big time with the princesses! He was actually quite disappointed when I was planning this and said it would be just Ariana and I. I've often heard the princesses say that they love having princes' visit, but it's tough when they get a little bit older.

I can picture your little stinkers in there having sword fights amongst the tables (dang plastic swords!) Yes, this definately was a fantastic way to start our day. Let's just say what happened next was a definate "I told you so" moment.

I would LOVE to have breakfast at the Dwarf's cottage! As regal as the castle is, Ariana would be bouncing off the walls to actually BE in the cottage!

BTW your photos of Pop are amazing...I love all of them but especially of Baloo and Mowgli (sp?)-Baloo is one of DD's favorite characters...I had no idea they were there...That really looks like it would be a fun place to stay...

Our first trip we stayed at Pop and I was struck this time around by how much we'd missed not touring it. We hadn't seen anything outside of the 80's/90's section and we had so much fun just looking at everything. Definately my favorite value resort!

Bring it...

Welcome! ... and thank you! I love looking at the scrapbooking sections of craft stores and I often think how adorable everything looks but I've never actually done one. Maybe.....

I definately recommend breakfast over lunch or dinner! You'll love it!

Okay so looking forward to more!!

We loved staying at the Pop again! My brilliance came via the DIS. I was looking at the thread dedicated solely to the Pop and found the scavenger hunt.

What a great way to entertain the kids!! I wouldn't have thought of doing a scavenger hunt!

The picture of Ariana with Cinderella is beautiful. The way you displayed it at home, with the invitation next to it looks great!!

Isn't it funny how easy it is to forget something crucial when you go on vacation, or to wally world?? I do that on a regular basis, so now, I always pack EARLY!!

Looking forward to more!
