I think it came out in March sometime, If I rememver right. The hair lights up at night too.
I guess I never really paid attention to the origional story. I should probably read it.

Disney has a way with changing stories. The story of Pocahontas is not accurate. And the story of Tangled is quite different from the original German tale.

I really need to go when all those beautiful topiaries are out! Claire looks like she's having fun with the posing, I know Kadence thinks it's the funniest thing ever to pose.

Please don't tell me that the Rapunzel Tower is gone!

Thats funny the girls had to rest thier faces from smiling Thats good Claire got a bigger pearl than you. River is like that too. He always has to have bigger and better then me. She looks very happy with her necklace on.

Thats cute how Claire was posing like the toparies. River did the same thing on our trip last Oct. He posed like the toparies and the statues and pictures and the funny thing is I didn't realize he was doing it until half way through the trip when he told. I thought he was just trying to make funny poses

You know, someone just recently told me that gopher is not in the Winnie the Pooh books. I did not know that. I acutually had the books when I was little, but never read any of them. (Or was it one? I know it had a red cover and pooh was on it. LOL)

It is a really pretty time of year to go. In the past few trips we usually went right before it started and not everything was out, but still most of it was and very pretty. I am pretty sure the tower is gone.

I have to admit, I didn't realize it at first. She pointed it out to me once we got to China.....then I looked back and sure enough, I did notice she was trying to fit in.

It is kind of weird. I found another picture of it lit up on Dis and the while thing is lit and the hair is wrapped around the tower. That picture is for mearly on during the flower and gardne festival. Mayb it malfunctioned or somethign and they unwrapped it? Thats kind of weird.

We continued on through Germany. I thought about stopping at the Karmel store, but I was still full and Claire wanted to keep on moving.





And Claire is posing like Snow White.









Claire was really getting into it!



On to China!





Claire’s hand is out like that because she is pretending she is holding bamboo.



And then Norway!





And some more flowers.









And then on to Mexico. We had fast passes burning a hole in our pockets for Test Track, so the plan was to walk through Mexico quickly and head towards TT, then come back and ride the Mexico ride….well you know how plans go….



And this is a bird face. LOL!







On to Test Track!







Of course about 2 seconds after we got in line, Claire had to go potty. I told her we should go, and she said she would be ok as long as the ride didn’t go fast…well duh…we left the line and went to the bathroom!

The rest of the World Showcase pictures are great, Jen. And I continue to love Claire's poses.

The downside of being better than everyone else is that people tend to assume you're pretentious.

Germany - check
China - check
Norway - check
Mexico - check

So, um, how many of these countries did you stop and get your passport stamped in?

Love the pick a pearl! I did this at SW in San Diego when I was about 8, I stil have the pearl. I would really like to do it again here. We'll see what we can do about that!

So many countries, so little passport stamps. It's okay though, you'll be back again and can get the rest of them.

I love the many poses of Claire! Especially the Simba/Rafiki one! So cute!

It's a good thing you got out of line. I wouldn't want to know what may have happened!

AHHHH! The dreaded "I have to go potty"! Kadence did that on the Backlot tour. I rushed her to the bathroom and ran on to te tram area. I wish I would have wait so we could have seen all the movie props there.

Love Claires posing I'm glad we got the goofy kids that do that. I've seen some who won't even look at the camera at all. But then again, some stubborness makes for a great photo (ex..Claire at Epcot with the Tinker Bell border!)
