Tropical Storm Debby was sitting over the area and the day of my daughter's appointment turned out to be the worst day Debby brought as far as rain.

Still there was no lightening or even thunder with the storm, so we trudged on. We had a great morning in Adventure Land, met several characters and did a lot due to the low crowds, then went back to the resort to get dried off, change and get her stuff for her appointment.

Her makeover was amazing, she had a great time at her photo session and at dinner in the castle, but that wasn't it. During dinner, Belle became ill and didn't make her rounds while we were there. When we decided to leave, the staff arranged for us to go through the fast pass entrance for the Princess Meet and Greet at Town Square Theatre. I told them it was okay because we had Akershus the next morning, but they convinced us, plus it was on the way out so we trudged through the rain where a nice CM met us and took us to meet the princesses.

Here's the post from my trip report:

I still get emotional thinking of that night.
My is 5yrs old. She is very lucky little girl who Mickey as much as mommy.

My son is a souvenir from a trip, but not to Disney. When my husband went into shock, I told him "hey, the trip was your idea."

I call him my unexpected blessing.
Love those unexpected blessings Congrats on yours!

Mine was on this past trip. We got on BTM just after the fireworks had started.I remember as we were turning one of the corners that was outside you could see the fireworks above us and i couldn't help but smile at how lucky i was to be there seeing it.
Several!! Often when we first walk out onto main street from under the train station. I get a tingle. One year, my son took his girlfriend with us, and her eyes widened and she smiled as they held hands. that was pretty magical.

A week ago we took our children to Disneyland for the first time as we were walking to the gates my sweet 9yr old looked at me and said "mommy, I can't believe we are really here" I then walked into the park crying happy tears from her excitement. A moment I will never forget

Oh! I just thought of another, which is actually my favorite, so I don't know why I didn't post it sooner:

When my son was 3, he *loved* Peter Pan... LOVED. And we'd had trouble finding the character to meet. But then we were watching the parade and I had him on my shoulders and lo and behold, Peter Pan on a float. We started walking along the sidewalk ( behind people, we weren't shoving ) to keep up with the float while he cried out "faster daddy! Faster!" and waved furiously at him to be seen by Peter. Eventually, he turned on the float and waved in our direction, and it was a moment he still remembers when Peter waved at him.
