Oh yeah!
Mom and Princess already had their "Gals Weekend" for Flower & Garden Festival - they even met some fellow DIS'ers!
DS and I finally got to attend Star Wars Weekends for our "Guys Weekend" (Trip Report of that will follow this one)
And we're still planning some more Capell fun for 2012 so stay tuned...

Nice treehouse pictures but it looks like that fresh fruit needs some dusting

Seeing the princess with the cannon made me smile thinking of May and then I laughed when I saw your comment to Caitlin

Looking forward to more!
Yeah, that was one of the reasons I liked Caitlin's cannon pic.
Our princess had found those cannons on this trip so she must have been plotting that Pirate Pose for some time...

and also thanks for all the pics of Swiss FR treehouse. its one of my favorite live action disney movies, and when we go in September its going to be closed! Looks like a fun walkthru at least. My husband didnt really want to do it anyway and this way i can at least know what most of it looks like!
Unfortunately, those tons of TR's keep putting me way behind.
But, yes, I promise to write 'em if you promise to keep reading 'em!!
As for the Treehouse, it was fun to check out this time around.
I wouldn't say it's something to do every trip, but it's nice to check out every once and a while.
And the kids appreciated it more since they just saw the film.

The trip was actually at the end of January - a couple of weeks before X's birthday.
No matter, we all still considered it X's Birthday Trip.
And having a 3rd adult for 3 kids helped more than you might think.
Potty breaks, fastpass runs, and getting food were the among the things that became much easier...

We'll get to one of those particular potty breaks a bit later.

And I'm definitely looking forward to going back down to WDW on one of the alluded to upcoming trips. But let's not jump the starter's gun on that.

Equally not good? I'm not sure if I really want to ask.

Part of Our World

After our trek through the treehouse, we headed back to meet Mom.
Mom was first on line in the alcove near the Adventureland Veranda.


Sure enough, a door burst open and out came the regal Prince Eric with a walking mermaid!


Apparently, with the departure of her grotto, so went her tailfin.
Ariel was now dressed in a stunning gown with, what do you call 'em?
Oh, feet.


This next picture I just love.
I didn’t think you could actually capture a look of joy on someone’s face.
But this one certainly does.
Ariel was, by far, our little princess’ favorite and today she got to meet Prince Eric as well – something she has never done before.
Well, this shot says it all…


Tentatively, she walked towards her idols.
Don’t you just love the Disney Magic?


Then, at least, the poses.
I think my camera did a pretty good job of catching this moment when compared to Photopass if I do say so myself.
Here they are, side by side so to speak…




And, then, of course, the signature shot.
HA! Pun intended!


Then we tried to get X into the shots.
It was his birthday after all.
But he wanted nothing to do with that... that... GIRL!
In fact, he hid his eyes so he could not see her.
How cute!




But his disappointment did not last long.
Our princess was positively giddy at this point and I imagine didn't care what we did next.
So we opted to return to X's first ever ride in Walt Disney World.
After stopping off at the restrooms, we headed further into Adventureland.
It was time for

Unbelieve sights,
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky


Anyone know where we’re headed?

What better way for a Princess to start her day than meeting royalty?
The boys, however, were growing impatient by this point.
They needed some action!
