So funny that Elsie didn't like Gaston

She is wonderfully confident with the characters, I mean they are just HUGE next to her and yet she seems to enjoy meeting them so much

I know its strange the only ones she's not as keen with are face characters.
She got over it after a few days though.

February 7th - The days of Kingdoms and Be Our Guest PART 1

We were at Animal Kingdom for about 9.30. We made our way over to Camp Minnie Mickey but it doesn't open till 10 so we wait and wait.

Finally at 10 we are on our way to see some characters. Slowly going insane listening to some people's conversations. The things we over hear in WDW are very strange.

E.G In Ohana the family behind us the dad told the children "they wouldn't go to heaven if they didn't eat their breakfast because you dont see any happy skinny people in heaven"

waiting for Tinkerbell a couple behind us it was the ladies birthday (actual day off) and they were looking at photos of the day and she said "I always close my eyes in photos" her boyfriend/husband replied "No it is because you have a fat face"

But this morning it was the couple behind us they had been on the trian to Rafikis planet and were complaining they hadnt seen the Yeti lol.

Any way back on track. We were on our way to where else but to find some characters.

First up Baloo and King Louie








We had so much fun here. Every one else seemed to be more interested in seeing Minnie, Mickey and the others so we had them all to ourselves for ages! Elsie did her monkey dance for King Louie. Added bonus Baloo signed our autograph book for King Louie as well so we actually had King Louies page filled in Elsie's autograph book.

When we left they were announcing Pocahontas was on her way and no one was waiting so we decided to wait for her.



She talked to Elsie about where she lived and told her about John Smith. She was very good in character Elsie was still eyeing up King Louie though.

The Festival of the Lion King was just about to start so we parked up the push chair and made our way in! We were Elephants again Dave and I seem to sit in the same place every time.





Every one must must see this show it is soooo AMAZING!

Elsie loves animals nearly as much as she loves characters so we had a stroll through Maharajah Trek (yes I googled it I couldn't remember how to spell it)





We then made our way over to Nemo the musical. Stopping for some swingers though.



I love Nemo the musical the music is amazing but Dave isn't that fussed by it! We had a bench for two right at the front of the second set of seats. So all the actors run past. Just before Dori come on she stood with Elsie for ages. Elsie got to stroke Dori and got a kiss from her. Great seats.



After the show we decided to grab something to eat we tried Flame tree BBQ. It gets great reviews on the web but we really really weren't impressed it was soooooo salty not nice!

As we were so close to Russel and Dug it would be rude to not stop and say Hi.





It was about 1 and I wanted to be at Magic Kingdom for the parade so we made our way out and on the bus to Grand Floridian then got the boat over.

February 7th - The days of Kingdoms and Be Our Guest PART 2

At Magic Kingdom and a quick bathroom break for every one and costume change for Elsie. We then got a few drinks and found a spot for the parade.



After a busy busy day at Animal Kingdom even though I charged my camera the night before (and remembered to put everything back in the camera) I had run out of battery. That is my only photo of the parade.

Dave videoed it all though and Elsie loves watching it!

She was really lucky during the parade Pluto, Goofy, Jessie, Abu, Gideon all stopped for a cuddle with Elsie and most characters waved and blew kisses to her so she was very pleased.

We had dinner at 4 at Be Our Guest! I was sooooooo excited about this. As you all know Elsie loves Beauty and the Beast and she finally going to meet the Beast.

(apologies for the photos they are from Daves phone)















This place is so amazing really really amazing! The detail is exactly like the film. Elsie now says when she watches the film I been there! Bless her.

Here he is


They had a little dance together and Elsie loved it.



I really hope we get to return here even if it is just to see the Beast.

After dinner we were all pretty tired we had been out since 9 it was now 6 and we never do a full day and Elsie hadnt had a nap.

Nice early night for us! Ready for a lot of shopping tomorrow!

Awwwwwwww my heart just melted looking at Elsie with the Beast SOOOOO adoreable!!!

And as for the "over heard in WDW" part I just have to laugh, so funny! What goes through some peoples minds!! And when is it ever ok to tell your partner they have a fat face - even if it is true its still not ok lol!!

Great update!! Really really enjoying your report, everytime I read something about Elsie I wonder "Would Will like that?"

Where are you eating? We mainly ate buffet or family style (all you can eat but brought to the table). We found having a good breakfast we didnt need much for lunch. We often ate back in the room made a sandwich or something. Then saved a QS for dinner. QS was harder as she doesn't like chips chicken nuggets etc. if we found some where that had mac and cheese one of us would order it and share with her. Or if there was ever a side order that we thought she would like we ordered that. She isn't a big eater though she eats small meals but snacks quiet often. Probably (why she always has so much energy) hence the mention of Mickey cheesy biscuits most days lol.

If you ever have any questions feel free to ask. We were really surprised how easy we found it with her. Only had one terrible melt down unfortunately it was the day it was just me and Elsie.

Thanks - just catching up as I've not been about for a few days! We have lots of buffet/family styles planned, especially as we want to do as many character meals as possible! Which was your favourite?

I hadn't thought about having out TS credit at lunchtime, but now you mention it it's probably for the best. We have thought about having late breakfasts and then running through until the evening.We're lucky as we have a set of grandparents with us so we are hoping to fit in a couple of date nights too!

We are also staying at SS in a 2 bed - I've been loads of times to WDW but never in DVC property and never on the dining plan so I'm excited besides it being DS's first trip!

Did you get on OK with fireworks viewings later on at night?

Your DD looks gorgeous in all her outfits and it looks like you had a great time with her, I love how confident she is with the characters, I hope my DS is the same! At the moment the closest he gets is to my 3ft soft toy Mickey - which I got from my first trip as a child in 1988(!) - he crawls into our spare room says hello and gives him a smile every morning, my DH says Disney in in his genes! ;-) x
