Spring Break Recap ~ Princesses & Friends ~

Ah. I am finally getting around to posting our Spring Break Recap! Easter came so quick, we have been busy, blah blah blah. Those are my excuses. haha.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, its off to Disney we go.

For weeks Katelyn had been looking forward to seeing her princesses in person and seeing Cinderella's Castle. We got to the park 15 minutes after they opened and headed straight to get in the line to see some princesses.

I've seen the wait for the princesses be as long as 2 hours if you go later in the day to meet them. 2 hours + Katelyn = Go first thing in the morning.
Our wait was a tiny 15 minutes. The whole time we were in line Katelyn talked non stop about who she would be meeting. Would it be Snow White? Cinderella? Ariel? I was crossing my fingers that Belle would be behind the magic doors. Belle is Katelyn's favorite princess and she was proudly wearing her Belle T-shirt.

When it was finally our turn to enter the princess room, Katelyn went Ka- ray - zee!! She started screaming "I see Seeping Booty, I see Cinderella, I SEE BELLE!"

Only 3 princesses are in the room at a time, a fact that did not slip by Katelyn. After she sized up who was IN the room, she quickly pointed out who was NOT in the room.

Where is Snow White?Where is Ariel? Mommy, where are they?"

I told her they were still eating breakfast and maybe we would see them later.

Sleeping Beauty was first in line for us to meet. Katelyn ran right up and gave her a hug.

And while she was waiting for Sleeping Beauty to sign her autograph book, Katelyn told her that she was wearing her Belle shirt.

Next up was Cinderella. Again Katelyn pointed out that she was wearing her Belle shirt. I hope she didn't hurt Cinderella's feelings!

And last but certainly not least was Belle. We started off with Katelyn showing Belle that she was wearing her Tshirt.

Belle was so sweet and took time to listen to what Katelyn was saying about her being her favorite princess. So adorable. And of course we got her signature in the autograph book.

Gavin refused to go anywhere near the princesses. I guess thats normal. haha

Throughout the day we also ran into many other Disney friends.

Like the Fairy Godmother:

Why is Katelyn chewing on her shirt? Who knows. She had actually just got done telling the Fairy Godmother - can u guess - that Belle was on her shirt.

We also saw Captain Hook and Mr Smee:

Katelyn refused to go see them.

Buzz Lightyear:

Once again, Katelyn refused to go get her picture taken.

We also saw Mickey and Minnie of course. We have no pictures of this experience though. Why? I believe we were attacked by Mickey and Minnie. They were more excited to see us than we were to see them. Seriously. As soon as it was our turn in line Minnie grabbed me and Katelyn and pulled us both in for a hug. Then a kiss - which was kinda surprising. Meanwhile Ken and Danyelle were being attacked in the same manner by Mickey. I don't even know where Gavin was during all of the hugging and kissing. We were all being passed back and forth by those mice. Then they pulled all of us together to get our picture taken by the Disney photographer. And then it was over. It was a whirlwind I tell you. haha.

That's it for Spring Break recap Part 1. More to come!!

That sounds like SOOOO much fun! I love all the photos of Katelyn with the princesses. :) What a cutie!

TOTALLY cracking up about Mickey and Minnie!! LOL!! Love the Princess shots. I am not sure if Lani would have her photo with them or not. Maybe because they look real, but definitely not with anyone in all costume. Katelyn is just so sweet:)

So precious!! One of the great things about living in Florida is being so close to the big mouse house! I'm glad you all had so much fun. I am sure you made some precious memories.
