We were first in line at Ariel’s Grotto. Clare made it known that she was not into visiting princesses, but Mary warmed up to them all pretty quick.
Next we went to Enchanted Tales with Belle where we had just a tiny wait. They picked performers out of our group and put on a play for Belle. Mary didn’t want to perform, but Grandma did tell her if she went up for a photo she’d give her gummies.
We had Fastpasses to visit Rapunzel and Snow White, so no wait at all.
Snow White asked Mary if she’d been walking in the diamond mines, because her shoes were so sparkly. 🙂
We went to the character dinner buffet at 1900 Park Fare (at the Grand Floridian resort). I’m so glad we didn’t book one with Mickey or other “fur characters”, because Mary didn’t want to see any of them close up AT ALL. We had debated doing Cinderella’s Royal Table in the castle, but I think this was a great choice. The food was delicious and we were entertained. Prince Charming was everyone’s favorite. His smile is perfect!
Cinderella was kinda disappointing after all the other sweet princesses we met in the park.
Mary didn’t really care for Lady Tremaine, so she pretty much ignored the girls and I took a photo with her.
Anastasia, the first stepsister to visit our table, was soooo good with Mary! I know she was apprehensive about meeting the stepsisters and stepmother, but this girl was incredibly nice. Mary even hugged her at the end. However, she requested not to meet the other, so Mary and I visited the dessert buffet when Drizella made her appearance.
Clare wasn’t too impressed with any of the characters. 🙂
I was a little bummed that Mary (and Clare) got freaked out by the fur characters. There were such short lines (less than 5 minutes for Mickey himself!) and ample opportunities (several characters in our resort lobby one afternoon), but maybe in a few years. 😀
Once when I had the girls by myself (everyone else was on Pirates of the Caribbean), we walked by Jasmine and Aladdin. I thought Mary would go meet her because by then we’d seen several princesses, and it was such a small line that I could just leave Clare in the stroller, but Mary said she was afraid of Aladdin. I guess that’s not a bad thing, right?
