That is so sad! We live in the country and have a back yard fire pit, so we roast hotdogs and "smarshmallows" (as DS 5 calls them ) quite a bit in the fall and spring. Did she like them?

Yep she loved them! We went back for seconds and went back to the marshmellow roast a few times in the week.

Epcot Fireworks and Day 2 BBB

I liked how we could see the fireworks at night from the Center Court at CBR. You really couldn't see the ground stuff but could see the sky fireworks above the trees.


We were so tired from a day of travel, the moment our heads hit our pillows we were all out. I set the Mickey wake up call for the morning. That morning we had QS breakfast at the food court. My oldest had the classic Mickey waffles and I split my breakfast with my DD. My DH had the deluxe breakfast like me.


It was off to DTD and the BBB. This was a first for my DD. She was 3 last time we were at WDW and now she was turning 6! I like that the bus ride from CBR to DTD is really short. The bus does stop at Typhoon Lagoon during the day but it really wasn't a bother. I found the internal busses to be pretty efficient although we did walk from Trindad North to almost everything in the resort. I figured we needed to burn some calories.


We did get to the BBB early and it was packed! We ended up walking around for a bit. The weather was sooo hot this trip! The temps were in the 90's and we were all feeling the heat. It was a perfect time to stop at Goofy's and get the slushes for our snack credit.

Claire was called and her seat was right near the door. Not a problem unless you are taking pictures like me. I had to keep stopping and starting video so people could pass. We brought our own dress and selected the coach package. I think it was about $53.00 We could have had her nails painted for $5.00 more but I knew the polish would probably chip off within the day.

there are tons more videos on my youtube from start to finish

OMG! This is one of my favorite pictures:




It was back to the resort for some PB and J's in our room and I tried to get my DD to lay down for a nap. On a towell of course! I asked for our attendant to go light on the Pixie dust. My DH and DD left us and went to look around the resort.
Our Fariy God Mother in Training was from Venezuela and awesome!
We were very excited to get an invitation to test out a new Disney product too. I made an appointment to do that on our HS day.
Next stop MNSSHP.

The MNSSHP Our First Dinner at CRT

We all went back to the resort after DTD and I tried to get Clarie to lay down for a nap. She managed to doze off on a pillow covered with towels so she wouldn't get her pixie dust all over the bedding.

Around 3 we headed out the door and caught our bus to MK.


I had purchased our MNSSHP tickets in advance so all I had to do is go to the Will Call window and pick up my tickets. The problem is I left both my KTTWC and my ID back at the resort. It was no problem though. They were able to look up our tickets by our home address. That was great because lines were forming to get in for the party and we had dinner ressies at 5:20PM I didn't want to be late for.

We walked through the gates, got our wrist bands and candy bags, and headed onto Main Street. I was a bit sad because we had planned for so long to wear our costumes and only my oldest and youngest had costumes. Darn Postal Service!





We made our way down Main Street to Cinderella's Castle. We had about 30 minutes before our dinner ressie.

CRT continued

We got to the castle about a half hour before our ressie. They wouldn't check us in until 10 minutes before. I had read here on the Dis that there is a place inside of the BBB inside the castle you can take pictures. And sure enough there was! There was also a Photopass lady there and she took some pics too!



Finally it was time! This was our first dinner at CRT. We have been to the actual MK 7 times itself but this was the first time I have ever been able to secure ressies at CRT. First my DD took her picture with Cinderella and Cindy gave my DD a big kiss on the forehead.


They then called our name and we headed up the staircase to the top of the castle.

Dinner at CRT

We made our way up to the restaurant and were seated fairly close to the windows.

Our bread was brought out with our drinks.

We started out with our appetizers. Both the DH and I had the shrimp cocktail.

DD had the salad with pumpkin seeds and crasins. I didn't snap a picture of that.
They had the introduction of the Princesses and we were pleased to find out we were the first table stop. Because we were so close to the windows I was having a lighting issue in my photos. Snow White barely shows up. I cannot find the one of Sleeping Beauty.




Entrees began coming out. I ordererd the stuffed chicken breast:

DD had the beef:

and DD had the seafood pasta:


Next up the "Wishing Ceremony" and dessert.

The one to the ship made it. That had our FE gifts in it. The one delivered to the resort had our sun lotion and Halloween costumes. It was lost in PA.

I got some help from the Conceirge and they were able to deliver the box to the Hyatt post cruise for us.

CRT Continued

We were waiting for our desserts to come out and they had a ceremony with the wands and swords they gave each child along with a wishing star each child was given.
Here is the video: just click the picture.



Claire was brought out a cupcake that she could design for her birthday.


along with a build your own sundae:


I had the dessert trio:

My DH had the sugar free sorbet:

Cassie had a cheesecake which she didn't even touch!


My husband thinks this was the best food of the WDW portion of our trip. I thought so too but I also loved Cape May. Next stop is the Haunted Mansion.

We came out of Cinderella's Castle to stop by our favorite fountain and plot what rides we wanted to ride. My DD is still very small for her age and we had to decide what she could do and what she couldn't. I didn't realize the teacups were still open because there is this big wooden structure up there. We also didn't ride Dumbo


We headed off to the Haunted Mansion. Both of my kids have been on this ride several times but it's been two years. Claire was optimistic but didn't remember how the ride went. And they also added the new gravestones and other fun things in the line to wait. There wasn't a bad line but we walked the way that took us to see all the new stuff.

I rode with Cassie and my DH rode with Claire so I didn't know what her reaction was.

She was absolutely balling when I met her after the ride. She had cried off all her Princess make up but was fine. Turns out she had her eyes closed most of the ride!

We walked over to the Saloon near Big Thunder Mountain and ran into a few friends.




There was a dance party and our first candy stop. We ran and rode Peter Pan and Small World, stopped for a Dole Whip, and then were off to POTC.

Next more MNSSHP.
