Ewww for the hairy line hugger! Thats great you said something to her. River didn't use a stroller when we went to Universal bu they closed at 8:00pm so he was fine. When we go next June he will be 8 and I will get one for out late MK and Epcot nights when he gets tired he can get in and rest and the grownups can keep having fun and everyones happy!

I loved the Splash Mountain and Pirates pics. We didn't get to do MK this past trip and I miss it

Great pics with Tiana we never got her because her line was always so long. But I did get pictures of her with other peoples kids I'm afraid when we go next time River won't want to do any of the "girls" because he'll be an 8yr old boy. I guess I'll just have to tell him I want to get my picture with them and he has to come with me

We didn't take it on the cruise portion, because I knew she could handle that well and it would be a pain. She did fine. But that day at MK, especially in the late evening her rear was glued to it.
I think your idea is good. Mom really wants to see her is a good con....

More photopass pictures.









And mine.













I’m not sure why Claire is making all these weird faces.





I don’t think Claire wanted to leave.









Claire seemed to be having a good time with them. They did a lot of talking, but I have no clue what the conversation was about.

Next stop was a quick potty break and then we checked in for our BBB appointment. I let them know that we had our own dress and would need to get changed as well. The appointment was for 5:55. We checked in a little early.
I debated on actually doing this. Claire LOVED it when we did it in 2009. But we had limited time in the parks this trip and I wasn’t sure I wanted to try and fit this in as well. Claire talked about it all the time though as the trip approached. She was convinced we would be doing it. So a few weeks before we left I made the call. I figured a later appointment would work for us. At the time, I was going with the assumption that we wouldn’t be eating till 9:30 at CRT, so I tried for the latest possible appointment. 5:55 was the latest they could get us, and it actually worked out great.
I never wrote about it in my PTR, I decided I would let it be a surprise for my TR. I also never told Claire that it was actually booked. I told her we “might” try to do it. So when she got the note in that morning about her appointment, she was very excited.
While we waited I tried to take pictures of the current dresses. I got a few and then it became more crowded and I gave up.









Claire spotted the crowns and wands. She “had” to have one of each. I let her know it would come out of her spending money and she was fine with that. We told them at the desk and they handed them to us.

A few more before getting called back.





Soon we were called back to the dressing room to change.

Oh, the pictures with Tiana and Naveen are fabulous! It's too bad that they removed him from the meet and greet

I love the gloves and handbags at BBB! It's probably a good thing that I don't have a girl, I'd go broke buying all that cute stuff.

I thought Naveen stopped making appearances a while back. Oh well, it'd be great if he still was coming out with Tiana! My best friend and I met them last year. The CMs really spent time talking to us, and since I am from New Orleans, Tiana really liked talking to me : And Naveen was doing "vogue" poses with my friend. It was hilarious!

That last pic of Claire...she looks like she has attitude in it

Is he gone now for sure? I knew they took Flynn out, and wasn't sure if Naveen was gone at the same time or if he got to hang out a bit longer.

It's hard not to just go an buy it all.

He's been thre till recently. I'm not for sure if he is gone now, but if he isn't he will be gone soon. I like the Princes...it adds a litle something different.

Love all the Tiana photos! From what I heard from a friend who works in the MK, there are only 2 men who play Naveen, so that could be why they are removing him. But again that could just be a CM rumor. I know he was there in June when my friend went to visit.....without me!

You got a great Tiana and Naveen. They both look perfect for the part, and all the pictures are really cute. I love the PP borders on those too.

Can't wait to see your BBB pics. I am debating doing this on our trip as well. My DD is 7 now and I just feel like this might be the last time she would be interested in doing it. I think I might regret it afterwards if we don't do it. The last time we did it, she was 4. Did you do the photo session afterwards? We did that last time but I don't know where it is anymore. In '08 it was in Exposition Hall. Do you know where it is now? Is it still "free" to add to your PP card?

Shame on your friend. Tell her next time to book her trip through me! LOL! That could be true about Naveen. it seems like every picture I see of him looks pretty much the same.

That was my fear too. I didn't know when we'll be back and she made NOT want to do it in the future, so I figured I better get it in again before she's "too cool".
We did do the photoshoot as well. And yes you can add it to your photopass. It is now in the spot where Tinkerbelle treasures used to be. I think it's called Castle Couture. Behind the castle got to the left and that is the place. It's in the back part of the store. It was crowded though.

It's a lot of fun for girls who want to become a princess. Claire loves make up, so it was her cup of tea for sure.

Warning…. There will be a LOT of BBB pictures……
Claire got changed and soon we heard someone ask if we were ready yet. We were almost done, and she said she would be waiting outside the curtain for us.
We put on Claire’s finishing touches and were led out to her chair. I just love Claire’s dress. We got it from another Diser and I fell in love with it when I read her TR. She was selling it as it no longer fit, and I was happy to buy it.



Claire picked the Diva style again. But this time I was relieved that she picked blonde hair instead of pink!



I believe they were picking out face jewels here.



At some point and time the Photopass photographer came over and asked for my card. I told her that I had set it on the work station of the FGIT. She acted surprised, and I asked if that was wrong to do. She said no that was exactly where it should go, but she never had anyone do that before. She wondered if I had been there before, and I said yes. And she thought it was funny. I told her (and the guy too) to take lots of pictures because I had pre-bought the CD and I think they did a fair amount.





And getting started.









random shots









If I did this to Claire at home she would be SCREAMING!



A quick Video.

















Make-up was next.

I wish they had BBB when Lacey was younger. It looks like so much fun! How sweet of you to surprise Claire with a visit. I remember how much she loved it before.
