Hey everyone! A week from today we are headed back to the world so I thought today would be a great day for an update!

When we last left off we were heading towards the castle walk through!




First we had to take pictures though!





From where we were we could also see Snow White's wishing well



The entrance to the walk through is around the backside of the Castle and before you enter you see this beautiful drinking fountain.



This is one of my favorite pictures from the trip! I love how it turned out and I took it with my iPhone which I am now in love with!



The point of the walk through is to take you through the story of Sleeping Beauty and it has animated pictures throughout.





The fire in this picture actually moved!





In this picture the fairies were in the corner and flew down one by one to extinguish the candles in a chandelier.










The pictures were absolutely beautiful!











In this picture you watched Maleficent turn in to the dragon!






In one of the hallways they had doors with a little window in them and this is what you saw when you looked inside



In the other window you would see a guard walking by!



When we got to the end



Everyone lived happily ever after! It was such a great exhibit!

After our walk through I wanted some pictures of the carousel.

See the photopass guy? Well I wanted some pictures with the sword in the stone.



After that picture was taken he asked if I had some free time which I did so he took me on a photo shoot of Fantasyland!

Our first stop was Toad Hall






Followed by the tea cups





Mom even got in on the photo shoot!



Next stop was outside the storybook boats





After the photo shoot we thanked the photographer profusely and continued roaming around Fantasyland. So just an fyi if you ever go photopass photogs aren't as popular as they are at WDW and they will ask you if you want pictures taken other places if they are allowed to move from their spot. We were also asked this in Toontown but didn't know any more spots for pictures.





Passed by the still closed Matterhorn



You can see the ride cars in this picture





Passed by the Nemo submarines





It was time to use our Space Mountain fast passes! Space Mountain is so much better here! The Q is amazing and looks like you are actually in a terminal boarding a rocket! They have a huge rocket hanging from the ceiling and it's just so cool! The ride also seems a lot faster!



I think it looked like we had fun!

After our ride we headed back to Fantasyland so we could go see Mickey and the Magical Map!



Of course more castle pics before that!






I love the animals surrounding the castle!



We also got a close up of the Snow White area





I will leave you here for now and let mom talk about the show since it ended up being one of her favorite things at Disney!

I do have a question for our loyal readers. We have this TR which will probably end up taking us to our next family trip. Since mom and I are working on this one I was thinking of writing a solo TR for my birthday trip next week. My question is would you all be interested in reading about that trip or are you just happy with our Disneyland TR?

The chance to read another TR from you? Are you kidding?
Of course you have to write one!

Silly girl.

Plus I'm really curious to see what your reaction is to WDW after being at DL.

Thanks for the chapter, Caitlin!

She gets motion sickness so she was sitting outside the ride.

Thanks for reading!

Hello ladies! We just got back from WDW on Sunday so I am catching up.
How great that you got all those Photopass pictures - they really turned out good. The castle looks so pretty. I love the way they tell the story. The seats in Space Mountain look a lot more comfortable. Can't wait to hear more.
Also, I definitely want to hear about the upcoming trip so please keep writing.
Oh, and Caitlin, I highly recommend the frozen Caipirinha from Brazil at F&W -so good!!
