That's the word on the street. I think they already closed a gift shop somewhere else in the park (Beastly Bazaar?????) that they are remaking into an indoor meet & greet area. And the rumor is floating around that Festival of the Lion King will end in January until it reopens in a new location at at future date. That part is still rumor I think.

I can't wait to see the girls in their Cindy gowns too! I'll try to post a photo of Katie's blue Cindy when things slow down a bit. I need to get it back out and on her soon anyway. I never did hem it and I could probably do that long about now.

I was hoping to find a pair of "glass" slippers for her in one of the costume shops now that Halloween season is here, but so far I haven't seen any. I saw some online but I really hate buying shoes online without trying them on.

I actually took my chances and ordered some 2 days ago. Took a complete chance on whether they will fit. But I started looking around and there really weren't that many to choose from. But they have a 2" heel and Katie will love wearing them even for a bit. I figure she can wear her flats into the park, then swap to these for BBB and breakfast at CRT before changing.

Not sure what I'll do if they're too big though. It's not like I can stuff cotton in the toes of glass slippers!

Glass Slippers! Awesome! Are they hard plastic or more jelly like?

Pictures please When you get time, which right now may be after your trip!

How about a link?

http://www.buycostumes.com/Ariel-Cle...uctDetail.aspx

I was back and forth. I really wanted to find some locally so she could try them on, but I came up empty. So my fingers are crossed that these fit. I liked that this site pays for the shipping if you have to exchange for size. But it's not like I ca stuff the toes with cotton or anything. They sort of just needs to fit. She's in a 6.5 womens so I went with the 7.

I bet you're getting so excited with your own trip just a few weeks away!

Lovely shoes! I know when Kadence had her "glass" sandals she was so happy.
Yeah, cotton wouldn't look princess like...

I am getting excited, 22 days. I feel a little panicky about some things, but it will be what it will be.

The shoes arrived yesterday. I was really surprised at what a close fit they are. No room for cotton stuffing! I even considered sending them back for a bigger size, but no half sizes, so we'd be going up a full size. But she insists they fit just fine so I'm not going to push it. It's not like she's going to have them on very long anyway. Probably just for a few photos and around the BBB.

It was really fun to see her excitement. When I told her the box had come, she was excited but wanted to make sure they didnt' have any little Cinderella medallions on them! You know, like the kiddie ones. Not to worry, those don't COME in an adult size 7! Then she couldn't wait to put them on her feet.

You could always glue some on!

Glad to see they fit. I'm positive they're going to look awesome!

I love the dresses your daughter has. Did you make all those? They are beautiful! My sis and I had one each when we were kids and my mom even had one for a book fair, but I would have died to have had a whole wardrobe. My DD3 would too so I probably won't show her the pics. She will have to stick with the one my mom is making for halloween. . My seamstress skills are still at pillowcase dresses and things labeled "easy."

Thanks for sharing the pics!

I don't think I've posted on your thread since March (maybe longer) and I have not been good about following along. I did just catch up on the last few days of your TR. I'm exhausted just reading along so I'm sure you two were pretty wiped out at the end of this trip. You do have some wonderful memories and AMAZING pictures - thanks for sharing them with us.

The girls look beautiful all dressed up in their costumes and customs. I don't think I care too much for the pop-star hair but it did look cute on the girls. Your dresses are amazing and the Merida costumes are gorgeous. Your pictures from the castle show are outstanding. Katie is looking so grown up and has so much fun with the characters - I love it!

I can't wait to see your pink Cindy costume and read all about your plans for this December. Looking forward to your visit to BOG with the girls in their Belle dresses. I'm curious how the FP return time enforcement will affect your touring schedule and to hear what you think of the new FLE. I'll be reading along on your new TR and hopefully I can do a better job of keeping up with you!
