A day at Disney.

Her dad bought her the Belle dress for the day we were given at Disney.

What a neat day for this princess loving miss.

But the coolest thing of all, something I didn't even hope for was her encounter with Cinderella.

We had gone all day just missing little miss's favorite princess. If there was a line - we would be too late, the line would be closed. After one such try, and it's about 5:45pm . . . I asked if she would be coming by again. Well the page girl said "oh, I'm sorry, the princess will not be stopping to sign autographs, but will only be passing through here at about 6:30. Will she stop for pictures? I asked, "well it depends on the princess if she has time, if not she will just buzz through".

So little miss and I (princess stalker we are) watched and waited. Sure enough, around 6:30, we spotted that golden hair and blue dress making it's way towards us, surrounded by a host (read: big burly body guard!) and a couple of pages.

When she was relatively close little miss went running out to greet her. I started taking pictures realizing that Cinderella just may not stop. As she came by me, I was ready to ask if Cinderella would stop to take a picture when Big Burly Host asked if she (little miss) would like to come along!

YES! (I sure hope hubby was watching where we were going because Cinderella did not break pace a bit, but grabbed little miss's hand and we were off) Where? To the Dumbo ride! This is WAY better than a picture! So little miss got to end her day with a once in a life time experience - riding the Dumbo ride with her favorite princess, Cinderella.

I am only sorry that at this young age she probably won't remember this. Well, we have pictures, and she sure loved it today!

That is SO AWSOME! I take my girl to Disney AND dress her up. But she's still too little to stalk with me. I can't wait because BOY, CAN I STALK WITH THE BEST OF THEM.

Oh MY WORD!!! I was sooooo happy for her! Love all the pictures! And so does Thing 2, who is now properly jelous and wants to go see the princesses too. THANKS.

That is an amazing memory for all of you. My dad retired from Disney in 1991, and so I know first hand the wonderful things that a little Disney magic can do :) What a "wow" moment for both of you.

How awesome! My girls love Disney. We're very blessed to live close enough to go often (when the grandparents buy us season passes that is). Even then, the wonder of that place never wears off- even to me!

Wow...that is incredible! I'm so happy for you and your little princess! :)
We hope to take the girls to Disneyland on a big drive from Oregon but it will probably be in about 2 years (since we're doing another big vacation this year.)
Wow...I wish I was more computer savvy...that slide show is so cool!

Anyway, thanks for dropping by my blog! (I stayed up way too late writing this last post!) You asked about old movies...NO, lol, Pretty Woman doesn't constitute an old movie! Since you asked, anything like 1965 and before (think Sound of Music and then those B&W films that had Cary Grant...or those technicolor things from the 1940's.)

Anyway, so glad your family had a great time! :)
