OKay so when we last left off I was at GF and there was a bit of time before The My perfectly princess tea Party.Hailey doesn't do well with waiting or sitting or standing or anything in active for long periods of time so she was having a total melt down at this point,but I looked around and she wasn't alone."Breaking news live from the grand floridian lobby mini princesses everywhere are having extreme meltdowns and causing utter chaos"
Here's Hailey and her i'm not looking at you or talking to you pose
I bet if you stood outside you'd hear all the cranky cries.Finally we were introduced to Miss rose petal,and she then introduced one princess at a time to the other guests.
then she would present each princess with a crown from her,pose for a picture and they'd be led with their parent into the tea room
so some families sat with other families,there were alot of tables where it was a mother and daughter sat with 3 other mother-daughter groups but because we were 4 together we got 2 comfy chairs and a love seat,it was nice because we were pretty close to the middle of the room.
that is where each princess found her disney girl doll dressed in Aurora's gown
then we listened to this man play a near by keyboard or organ ,anyways whatever it was he was very good at it.
Hailey danced with her dolly
then miss rose petal sings to the guests and tells them her story(If you want to know her story I'll tell you ,but I won't put it here incase some want it to stay a surprise)
and as she tells her story she gives the kids instructions on what to do.So she tells the girls to reach into their tea cups and take the napkins to set in their laps to prepare for tea (apple juice) this is when they find that Aurora has left them all a special gift in their cup,a silver charm bracelet.
and they are served (the childrens plate)
and then of course the adults......
Can I just say I was glad I booked a lunch for after this,the bread was dry n hard like it had sat for a few days,there was almost no taste and I don't think it was just me being picky as i looked around the room no one seemed to be eating much except the kids,so my guess is their food was decent.I think the close to 600$ it cost me was more about the experience and the memory.
giving instructions on how to handle their new friends
then it was time to take the cake in to the kitchen to be sliced and served
then all the girls gathered in the center to hear a story
while someone makes a sneaky entrance
Aurora leads the girls in a princess parade through the tearoom
then our cake arrives,and I'm happy to say it was edible,my mother liked it more than I did but,I'm a baker so i'm more of a snob when it comes to quality of baked goods.
next Aurora comes to each table for photos and autographs
each child is given a rose and a note
then the tea party ends with a parade through the GF lobby and the girls are led upstairs for a photo pass pic ,and into the gift shop to receive a bestfriend certificate for their doll and a princess scrapbook kit.Hailey named her doll julia and riley named hers Zoey(although the lady for some reason wrote ZOY on the certificate)and I must say Zoey is a much better name than what she wanted to name her baby sister when i was pregnant with her "Pink Star Unicorn" but I decided hailey was a much better fit for her.
Now why wouldn't you name your second child Pink Star Unicorn? That's lovely! so cute!
Well it looks like the girls had a lovely time at their tea party! I've never seen much about that event before.
lol can you imagine being out in public and yelling at my kid not to climb on something "PINK STAR UNICORN YOU GET DOWN FROM THERE THIS INSTANT!!!!"
and yeah I had never heard or read much about the tea party either thats why I thought I'd go into more detail then" yeah we did the princess tea " It was expensive and the food sucked,but i'm glad I did it for them and now I can honestly say I'd much rather do some of the cheaper events,they're more fun.
I like how your daughter is looking at Aurora in this picture.
me too it's cute!!
we arrived at epcot and it was almost time for lunch at san angel inn in Mexico,but first we got a few pics.
(the dress I'm wearing in this pic has paisley mickey heads all over it,it's one of the ones I bought at Ak...the one my mom has on is the one that i bought n returned for one in the same style but a different print)
I was a starvin marvin and couldn't wait to eat !!While I wasw there I talked to one of my magic ladies-Jess,omg she is too cute!!!but it was hard to hear so we just texted a bit.I was excited because the next night we'd be meeting.
i asked to be seated by the river
i ordered the enchiladas
Hailey kept waving at the people in the passing boats some waved back some didn't.
My enchiladas were AMAZING!!!!!that's when I decided that from now on it's enchiladas para la vida!!! all I needed was besos y bebidas and it woulda been my kinda night!!
I've always wanted to eat at San Angel and just never got the chance! It's so beautiful in there, especially by the water! Lucky you guys that you got your request!
For my dessert i ordered the chocolate mousse which tasted nothing like chocolate at all that thing is all cinnamon folks
luckily riley liked it and was willing to trade for her churrirtos,they were to die for
I really don't think this place gets the credit it deserves,but i guess people like different things.I can't wait to go back,i don't even like rice but i ate that too.The girls wanted to do the boat ride next so that's where we went.
then we went to colour a duffy
Ry wanted to ride maelstrom since she loved it the last time,so grandma n Hailey hung out while me n ry went back back over the falls.......
then I went to get school bread and a horn for later( I should've taken a pic right away as they got slightly smushed)
and we had to go to China because my mom was looking for something that she never found( I think it was her mind Oops who said that?)
so cute yet so creepy
Just caught up and joining in. Our kids have same names ..although my Riley is a boy of 15..
Great report so far
I loved it it was so good although i was nervous Duffy might end up going for a swim
WELCOME!!!!!! thats awesome !!!
so we walked around Germany and China and some other areas of World showcase,it rained while we were in China and my mom was convinced that my kids would get deathly ill or something if they didn't wear ponchos,so i let her have her way just because I didn't wanna hear it.I didn't put one on because it felt nice it was a slow gentle rain not a cold downpour.
Here are some pics from our travels through World showcase
then riley made a new friend.....
We stopped to let the kids let loose on the drums,ya know it amazes me how without any music training they can bang away and make music that sounds so good.
We split up because h and I had a mission we wanted to hit up Club Cool and figment,but we actually went on Soarin first.
I always get so pumped up in this area because i know whats coming next
so we were here.....
and we decided to sit and Try to enjoy these.....
Not my fave Disney snack and i don't think I need to try it again anytime soon.
then we went on the land boat ride,it's a must for us everytime.I know some don't care for it but I like it and my girls do too.
Can I just live in epcot in this house and live off the land???
I wouldn't wanna fall in here
ya know what this pic reminds me ofhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GB9XVF80Lw
so we still had to hit up Figment and club cool
I want all the mickey clothes in here especially the scarvs
but I had a date with the cutest little dragon you ever did see
and then it happened,so lets recap this day shall we?@GF Hailey has a princess meltdown among several other princesses having meltdowns,then in epcot it rains but ya know they say bad things happen in 3's and I think i did a darn good job of not letting things upset me but but but my battery in my camera died right before the best part of Figment UGH!!!! I was legit frowning now see thats my frowny face.it's sad right? Well before I had left home Hubby said that all my batteries were good n charged ( i had so much going on that i asked him to take care of this 1 thing,well that n make sure my furry bff was healthy n happy ) and i was surprised that the first 2 lasted into day 3 kinda impressive right?WEll the 2nd set was not fully charged so moral of the story when ya want sumthin done right ya gotta do it yaself ladies!!! At this point I wanted to get on a monorail to the Poly ,see if we could get into Kona and then go in search of a dolewhip in other words I needed Disney therapy(not really but the next night i did for sure).Hailey had other plans she wanted me to call my mom n ry,if they were at the resort she wanted to go there and swim,but if they were in the park still she wanted to go to Poly.BOOOOOOO they were at the resort so we got on a freezing bus and it felt AWESOME!!!Oh and i almost forgot that before we left I had spaceship earth on the brain so we did that too,and you know why no pics.Hailey chose our destiny
which meant that i got crushed by a giant snowball ,broke my arm,got rescued by a dog and then had hot chocolate which of course made everything better.My trip report notes for the rest of the evening are so exciting that they say exactly this .....Food,shop.pool,shop fun right?
I Schoolbread...but I always purchase it at park closing and have it with coffee for breakfast the next morning.
I haven't been on the Living with the Land ride in YEARS! Just haven't thought my hubby and kids would be very interested in it.
Figment is awesome! There is a new professor where I work that has a plush Figment on the top of one of his bookshelves in his office...I knew right away that we would get along great!
Meltdowns, and rain and dead batteries, OH MY! But shopping...if there is any way to salvage a day it is shopping and eating! BTW~ I that Mickey dress you and your mom both have. Can you PM me and tell me where you got it again and how much $$$ it was. I would love to have one!
I usually go to the france bakery for pastries but this time i tried something new,the school bread was the better of the 2 we had that day though
I love living with the land!!!!
Figment is my BFF,he just doesn't know it yet that's all
yeah crazy day but,unfortunately not the saddest part of the trip I have some what of a melt down the following night too.
I loved the dress my mom bought ( I did buy it first HAHA)I bought them in a little shop at animal kingdom that is more like a hut its not a closed building,however those dresses are all over the place so thats a plus.I think after tax it came to 42.00 and change which isn't bad since you can pay that for shirts sometimes.The shop in the grand Floridian called summer lace also had some,it was odd because most places had my pink one either with the one my mom got or the one i returned mine for(which i need to take a pic for you) the only place i saw that had all 3 was at AK.then I was bummed out because i found out much later they had a scarf to match and I want that now to make a pair of sandals with( i'll send u the pic on facebook of what i mean)
