Looking forward to more!
It was a pretty magical day. Stayed tuned for more!

So we arrived at the ticket counter and had no problem using our vouchers. They even commented on how the husbands couldn't join us (we had gotten them vouchers too just in case but will donate them instead). Samantha got her birthday pin and we all got our Volunt"ears" pins. They are super cute and based on the commercial with the Muppets but I didn't think to take a picture of it. I did save them for memories sake so maybe I will take a picture here at home. After leaving the ticket counter we took a moment to get our bearings. The line for the monorail was down the ramp. The line for the boat? None! Score! T got into her princess best (Belle dress of course) and we were on the boat in no time.
Here we are waiting for the boat to dock


Once we got on the boat we realized why the line was not to be found. Brrrr...was it cold!
I got some nice pictures from the boat.

A few more shots of the girls on the boat (did I mention how cold it was?)




Soon we reach the promise land...The Magic Kingdom!

So off the boat and through the entrance we went! We were here. Of course we first had to stop and admire the castle. Time for a picture! But here is where I made my first mistake..camera batteries died! Augh! Then a parade was coming through (local marching band) so we had to clear Main St. Off to get batteries! L made the mistake of wearing her crocs with no socks and her feet were freezing! So it was a quick stop for batteries and socks. We had the best conversations about volunteering in the store with a CM who was super friendly and helpful.
Now that I had batteries in my camera I had to take a picture of L putting on her new socks. I love that she picked out this super fluffy, striped socks. Nothing like being subtle with your sock collection!


Finally got a castle shot but forgot to take one with my children in front of it!

Birthday Girl was asked what ride she wanted to do more than any other and it was no surprise when she came up with Big Thunder Mountain. Grammy and S went off to get fast passes while I took T and L to check out where Belle does her storytime. We were a bit early and the CM assured us we had time for a ride or two so we hopped in line for the Mad Tea Party. This was huge as T had not liked spinny rides up till now. While we were waiting we realized that Alice herself was riding with a family. Lucky them!
Here are a few shots of L and T on the cups. Notice the nervous smile on T's face?


Now she is getting a bit more comfortable



And hey! This is fun!!!!



At least, I think it's fun

We finished the ride and saw Alice was signing autographs. The line wasn't long so we hopped in. And then who do we see rushing to join Alice? Why someone who is always late!


How lucky to get to meet Alice and the White Rabbit! S was calling frantically on her cell phone trying to find us. It appears that giving your location as being "right in front of the Mad Tea Party" was not clear enough for her. I was anxious that she was going to miss meeting Alice but she arrived just in time.
Alice was wonderful. She saw T approching in her Belle costume and immediatly curtsied because after all that is what you do to a princess. The precious part was when T curtsied back (which of course I missed that part in the picture taking).

Where to next? Stay tuned to see!

Haha, the narration on the teacup picture captions is so cute!

That's great that you were able to meet the White Rabbit too! He's definitely an interesting character to take a picture with.

Storytime with Belle was something we had never done at WDW before. The last time we were here T was just shy of 3 and was not into her princess obsession stage. Now she is four and she lives and breaths all thing princess (including believing she really is one). Her favorite princess is Belle so of course this was a must do.
For those who haven't gone..this is a great low key way to spend about 20 minutes or so. Belle with the help of some children (and one good natured dad) retells her story. The children are picked out of the audience so perhaps you will get lucky! T did not get picked but didn't seem to mind at all. Here are some pictures from it.


Remember that she needs a good natured dad? Well here he is..no longer a beast but a handsome prince.


I highly recommend this for the Princess obsessed crowd (and their accommodating parents) Not only is it sweet and just the right length but it is in a shady spot right near the Mad Tea Party. It is nice place to relax and take a break from all the hustle and bustle. We arrived a moment after it began (the line for Alice took a bit longer than we thought) and had no trouble finding a spot to rest.
At the end the children are told that Belle will stay for a meet and greet for a short time. A line quickly formed. We jumped in and patiently waited our turn. Belle made a big deal out of T's dress. She told her she had one just like it and was going to wear it in this afternoon's parade. She promised to look for T and wave to her. Luckily T didn't remember this since I had no intention of going to the parade! She also asked her if her sisters were her servants. T said no but I must say that it was pretty accurate. T does manage to get her sisters to do everything for her.
Here is the pictures from our meet and greet



Coming up next: Another surprise for the birthday girl!

So where were we? Ahh, yes! Another suprise for the birthday girl. Uncle D is also S's Godfather. He has never been able to spend her birthday with her. So this year he wan't going to let a three hour drive stand in his way! So when we left Belle's Storytime, S was very very happy to see Uncles G and D waiting for her. Here is a picture of the b-day girl with Uncle D


And all of the girls with Uncles D and G!

I think if there's time, I would love to see the Storytime with Belle. She's my favorite princess, and I love that she's in the blue dress instead of the yellow one.

Aww, the picture of S with Uncle D is so cute! Love her smile in that one; she just looks content.

It was a pretty great day! We are in MA and experienced the terrible rain and therefore flooded basement this last few days. I promise to post more and continue my report tomorrow!

So now we were all together. It was time for Big Thunder Mountain! My DD loves this ride! Grammy didn't want to go so Uncle D, S, L and me headed off. T stayed with Grammy and Uncle G to get something to eat. Sadly I didn't even think to take a picture. Crazy I know.
After our fun we headed back to join with the rest of the gang. We grabbed Fastpasses for Buzz as the line was outrageous (50 min). What to do now? Why jump on the People Mover of course! Paging Tom Morrow.

Here is a shot from The Transit Authority



Next the girls find what they were wishing with all their hearts to find. This was a favorite from our last trip. I was sure that we wouldn't see it but we did and it was more than last time.

Any guesses?
