    Back in the main park we went to see what the Pooh bear meet was like. Always really busy why?

    It started raining so we took shelter in the Princess Pavilion. 40 minutes later we were asked who had we already seen and who would we like to see I said we had seen Cinderella and we don't mind who else we see.

    We saw Ariel

    She was so good with Elsie. She read all of Elsie's book and talked to her about her time at Disney. Elsie was really taken with her and talked back not that any of us know what she was saying :rotfl:

    Back outside about 3pm and we were making our way to the exit :(

    We bought two photos of what the photographers took

    and took some pictures of the tree

    You can just see me and Elsie in the bauble.

    Now time to shop :cheer2:

    We spent some time in the World of Disney I was really surprised that the Christmas section was the same size as when we come in September I was expecting more. We bought Elsie a Cinderella bag for Christmas to go with her dress shoes etc package we have for her.

    The old Disney Store didn't open till 4 so we went in all the other shops whilst we were waiting. I wasn't very impressed the shops really didnt seem very Christmassy.

    4 oclock and we were buying our last few bits in the disney store and then we made our way back to the hotel.

    In the hotel we had a cocktail and Elsie had a glow tinkerbell juice cup she was more interested in the straw of all things lol!

    Just to prove Dave was there ha ha!

    I love the lights on the window.

    5.30 and we went to get our bags and EZYshuttle were already waiting for us. Dave and Elsie fell asleep in the car and soon we were at the airport.

    Im not going to write about our time at the airport dont want to leave a nice trip on a bad note so lets just say after a couple of hours in the airport an hour in the air and 40 minute drive home we were home and already missing Disney well I was any way lol!

    Again thank you to every one who read and commented on my report I love re reading them myself. I hope to have them all printed for Elsie when she is older so she can read about them and see what adventures she got up to.

    Merry Christmas to every one. I hope you all have amazing fun filled times with the people you love.

    Thanks again

    Leanne

    What a lovely trip you had :)

    I LOVE Elsie's Mickey outfit :lovestruc she's beautiful

    About the Belle meet - I just don't understand why people need to be so rude at the meets - wait you're turn! We came across some in the summer, it was horrible.

    It's nice that Elsie got to meet so many characters.

    I want to do the same thing with our trip reports, I think it's a lovely Disney diary for them!

    It would be great in the summer with a couple of chairs. Way too cold when we were there. Each time before we went out though I nipped out there to see how cold it was lol!

    She loves him so much she must remember him from September.

    Thank you.

    She loves them and I am so glad she isn't scared of them.

    Thank you x

    Aw thanks I hope she still fits in it when we go to WDW.

    I couldn't believe any one would act like that any where let a lone a family theme park :sad1:

    Thanks for sharing :goodvibes

    Agree, and regret now not walking over to the Sequoia Lodge for a drink this Christmas (family weren't so keen :sad2:).

    Looks really cozy and Christmassy!

    Hiya Leanne, apologies for being so late! Wow what a fab TR, ye got to meet loads of characters and Miss Elsie is just the cutest. Love her Mickey outfit.
    That was crazy with the Belle meet. Its horrible and awkward to be a bystander when people behave like that.

    Is it Jessies kind of freakish face that weirds you out?!

    Thanks for sharing, loved reading it xx

    Aw thank you it feels like such a long time ago now :)

    The huge hideous 20's lol?

    Thank you. I have to agree ;)

    I love reading trip reports when we are going away. Or re reading my own to remind me how amazing it is at disney :)

    It was so nice at the hotel. Very Christmassy. Something for you to return to do :)

    Hello that's ok I didn't think any one else would read this now :) Elsie is character crazy at the moment luckily as WDW is so close now.

    Jessie's eyes I think it is and she doesn't have a neck buzz is a bit frightening too.

    I know she will be 2 in March can't believe it already x

    Oh gosh Leanne that was quick coming. Cannot wait to read that TR! Its amazing how quickly they stop being your little baby. Sometimes my DD surprises me with how grown up shes getting.

    The clothes / packing has to be the worst bit! I've all the clothes packed now but we were just saying we'll be like ladies or bag ladies until Tuesday because all our normal stuff is packed. Im getting a kick out of wearing dresses and being ladylike this week. Makes a change from the jeans that I live in!

    Is Elsies Jessie dress packed? Love that dress!!

    Yeah can't come quick enough though. Oh I know i can't believe how quick the las two years have gone.

    I love packing but having only ever been to WDW in the heat not knowing what their winter is like is hard. I don't want to over pack but I worry about Elsie. Lol.

    Yes the Jessie dress is packed she has a buzz dress, lilo, Alice, Cinderella, belle, Duffy and Minnie Mouse. :)
