I love all the character photos! Maddie was certainly on a mission, and she looks like she was having the time of her life! I love that all the characters were so different, but still so much fun.

You guys also got some great photopass shots, the pics of Maddie in front of the castle are very pretty!

Newbie joining in!

I am loving your TR so far. I agree with a PP who said she is living vicariously through you because none of her boys would be interested in princesses. Well I don't have any kids at all (yet) so I love seeing all the TR's here and the interactions the kids get with all of the characters. Can't wait to see more!

On the Empire Records refs! "Who knows where thoughts come from? They just appear."

I am on board for this TR, and for the record...I give you lots of props for being able to handle WDW with your MIL. I would go postal.

Great photos with the fairies and Jasmine and Aladdin.

Pinkie promise! God, I remember that from my youth. She should have made you pinkie promise to take her to Disney every year.

Looks like a great day! We had the same Jasmine & Aladdin. He was great with DD. Jasmine...not so much. She refused to bend down to get a picture. I guess when you're wearing a costume like that you have to stand up straight to keep it all in.

Yup, pinkie promise for doughnuts. She's crazy, but it did make me laugh a lot.

Rosetta has been the best fairy we've met. She's always awesome, and I feel like she's always the one who knows her character the best too. Yet, she's still not Maddie's favorite. Poor Rosetta. She rocks.

Loving your TR so far! Maddie is so cute!! I'm glad to hear that she wasn't too disappointed that the CBR isn't glittery! I love that she tried to get you to pinky promise for donuts every day!
Thanks for joining in!

My roommate in college and I literally watched Empire Records every day for our entire freshman year. It's one of my favorite movies ever. I never knew there were so many Empire lovers out there! Makes me happy.

It is too bad that CBR isn't glittery. Should have mentioned that on a comment card...

She's a nut. Doughnuts every day would be good, she's might be onto something.

ETA donuts every morning? Maddie is my kind of girl!
Thank you! DH and DD can be good sports up to a point. After a while they loose patience with me.

I'm so glad you're going to meet the princesses! Maybe DH will like it more than he thinks, they're pretty good with the boys too. We'll meet every princess on this trip, so you might get some tips! You'll have to tell him, maybe that'll make the princesses more palatable to him

Mine too! I wish doughnuts every day was appropriate!

You missed ARIEL??? How heartbreaking. (At least, it would be for me. I've still never met her!!!)

The donut pinky promise! That's hilarious!

That's the same Aladdin we met, I think! Oh man, wasn't he amazing?

Love the photopass pictures!! I'm guessing you know by now, but Rapunzel's old spot is now Merida's new spot. I think it should still be cool, just not AS cool.
Well, we didn't meet Ariel that day... Don't you worry though, my daughter has the memory of an elephant. She remembers who we still need to meet.

That Aladdin was superb. He was so amazing with her, we both fell in love with him.

We asked on day 3 about the Rapunzel area. To be honest, I'm holding a grudge against Merida about it. Don't even want to see the movie now. I loved that area for Rapunzel!!!

We skipped the fairies last year. We ran out of time with all the sickness! My girls have not let me forget it, either!

I hope you were able to get some family pictures without MIL during the trip. Mine encroached on our Chef Mickey's pic (one of the few clear ones with our whole family in it) and she can't be edited out. Grrr.
You are so sweet, she'd love that! Her pirouettes were pretty good, and she gets to do one in her recital routine-she's so excited! Her class is dancing to 'You've Got a Friend in Me' for ballet and 'Under the Sea' for tap!

Oh boy, you'd better make those fairies a priority for next trip! Rosetta has been outstanding for us, I hope that your girls get to meet her. Have Julia ask her if she likes mud.

Ugghh. MsiL! Why on earth wouldn't they think to let us have a family photo of the just the immediate family! So irritating. I assume that you'll not be asking MiL to join you for the next trip?

Yup, we're meant to be friends. Empire Records is my favorite movie EVER!!!

"What's with today.....today?"
Maddie went both ways. If she got rides in her head, she wanted to do 10 in a row, same for the characters!

I love it. I think that you're right! I never knew there were so many of us Empire lovers. It's my favorite too. My freshman roommate and I watched it every single day for the whole year. I just drove DH nuts by doing movie quotes for 30 minutes.

"Happy Rex Manning Day!"

Thanks for joining in! We'll have plenty of princess moments for you. I have to live vicariously through other's TRs for pirate stuff.

She loved that pinkie promise so much.

She was a man with a plan. She had so much fun, and we did watching her. Aladdin, Cinderella, Belle, and Rosetta were all outstanding.

Thanks! I don't feel like we got nearly as many good photos of the family as last year, but we did get lots of good ones of DD.

Welcome! Thanks for joining in! I love reading TRs with little kids. So much joy in every thing for them, its really cool to see.

HaHa!! love it! It's officially an Empire Records Appreciation Society here!

"Welcome to Music Town. May I service you?"

Thanks for joining in! If MiL had stayed for the whole week, one of us might not have survived. I learned my lesson. Though, we will be returning with her for her 60th birthday, but the whole gang's going for that one, so maybe we won't have to interact too much

Thank you so much! Aladdin was spectacular! We had lots of fun with them.

She loves the pinkie promise! I think that she is taking Disney vacations for granted these days. It would have been very smart for her to do that though. I think she knows I'm on board. I'll see if she can pinkie promise her dad

It was a lot of fun. Aladdin was amazing. Jasmine said almost nothing to DD, barely interacted at all. It was a bummer.

You're probably right! Wouldn't want any Janet Jackson moments in Adventureland! You'd think that they'd have double stick tape for that though!

Maddie reminds me of Kadence. She loves to dance around and twirl, showing the characters her "moves" My favorite was when she showed Ferb, how she danced like him, doing a little break dancing.

The Rapunzel wedding dress is being looked closely at by Kadence..... I think it maybe a good choice for next years trip

Now that we all know that the Merida from "Brave" is meeting in the old Rapunzel spot, how's the new spot for Rapunzel look?


Pinky swears? I can just imagine what kinds of ideas come to mind!

I do think donuts are a great idea!

It's so great your daughter is gung-ho about meeting characters. Eli will get into it in spurts. He met the princesses last time, but got really shy around them and talked into his chest.

I agree with a PP that I live vicariously though you for the "girly" things

Maddie really does like the characters, doesn't she?
She has really been having some excellent interactions with them.

I hope she'll let you get on some rides at some point.
