That's so cool. I can't imagine ever getting my DH to do such a thing, but who knows, maybe someday!
You never know when the kid will come out in my DH, but I always try to enjoy it when it does

Like I mentioned above the boys came up with the concept for that on their own. They just started singing the song and marching. Defintely Disney educated

Royalty Among Us Once Again

After our Photopass photoshoot I decided we needed a Mrs. Darling Photoshoot. While DH was lifting the kids up on the ledge I snapped this picture of one of the Jack O Lanterns. So adorable.



Then I took a few pictures of the Darling Children with Peter.





After the mini shoot we headed to my favorite street in the world, Main Street USA. To make it even better it was all decorated up for Halloween. Just have to love it. (Inexplicably I didn’t take any pictures here so these are from on the main WDW info site.)







At this point the kids were clamoring a bit for food, plus Michael was feeling a bit warm (his costume was a bit too cozy.) So we headed over to Columbia Harbor House to grab some dinner. We arrived around 5:00 and I have never seen this place so empty. We walked right up to the cashier and ordered. Unfortunately the upstairs was closed so we couldn’t eat in my favorite spot. Here is the one and only picture I took in the restaurant and it’s not a flattering one.



I had the tuna sandwich which is so yummy. Everyone else had either mac ‘n cheese or chicken nuggets. I definitely had the best meal. (Maybe that is why Wendy looks not so happy.)

After our dinner I informed everyone now would be a great time for rides. I wanted to get some under our belt before the party began so we could spend party time doing other stuff. What did everyone want to ride first? Peter Pan, of course. So we took the brief walk over to Fantasyland, but the Peter Pan line was 45 minutes which was definitely more than we wanted to wait. So we decided to try Winnie the Pooh and headed in that direction. On our way we were sidetracked. Brief flashback here. During our June trip the boys had tried to pull the sword out of the stone for the first time. Did they do it? Well one of them did. Here is a picture.



The other kids tried and tried, but couldn’t get the thing to budge. So everyone was up to trying it again. John was hoping he would be the king this trip. (He’d been a tad jealousof Michael’s success the previous trip.) Anyway ladies first so here is Wendy.



No luck. Next John gave it a try.



As you can see he gave it his all, but it didn’t budge. Finally it was Michael’s turn. Drumroll please.



As you can see it was really no problem. Michael wasn’t the least bit surprised. After all he is the True King. He can even pull out the sword dressed in his PJ’s.

Up next: Would we ever actually get on a ride?

Michael. How funny anc ! I'd be worried about how he will react the next time, that is if he isn't able to pull it.

Love the CHH pic.

I can't imagine a long wait for Pooh, but wonder if something else will catch your eye on the way.

It was pretty funny. And he was so nonchalant about it like he'd never had a doubt that it would come right up. Then he actually had trouble putting it back down. That was pretty funny too.

John was none too pleased with Michael's success. I don't think it stung quite a much as last time though. I think now he just figures it's one of those things only Michael does

Michael has no doubt that he has the power to pull up that sword. Might be a little shocking when the trip comes that he can't do it.

Michael's reaction in the future could be pretty funny if he can't pull it out. I guess we'll see in January. (Now if he pulls it out then that will be pretty amazing. I'll give you a hint about our first ride. Pooh is closed so it isn't there.

Notice in the picture of John how hard he is pulling on that sword. His face is all red

It is a bit crazy that he's now pulled it out twice. It must be a pretty regular occurence these days to have it come out.

Loving your TR!! The pics of the kids pulling on the sword are soooo cute - back in the day when my DS (now 21) was about 7 or 8 he pulled out the sword during the little show they used to stage with Merlin. He was awarded a Medal on a purple neck ribbon that read something like 'ruler of the kingdom' and all day long the CMs and characters who saw it bowed to him - boy oh boy was HE full of himself by the end of the day!!
BTW - what date did you do the MNSSHP party?

OMG, so the sword actually does still go up? I thought they only did it for that show they used to do. Very cool!

And as everyone else has said, your costumes were adorable.
