On our way to the Princess fantasy fair, we found Aurora. This proved to be the top princess moment for Lottie. Princess Aurora took her time visiting with Lottie and was patient as she waited for Lottie to reply. Lottie seemed overcome by her majesty's royal presence.
"I love your curls!" She told Lottie. "They're just like mine!" Lottie beamed.
Lottie asked if she had that dress in other colors.
Aurora explained the argument between Flora and Merryweather regarding the color of her dress.
Asking Lottie, "If you had a wand, what color would you make my dress?"
Surprising me, Lottie replied:
Aurora clapped her hands and said, "Merryweather will be so pleased to hear that!". We made our way to Splash Mountain. Along the way we saw Tom Burgeron. Our family loves to watch AFV and Dancing with the Stars. They were THRILLED (mostly Mom) when we saw him filming a spot for AFV. They rushed us along, but the temptation proved too much as I tip toed back a bit later for a photo.
While waiting for Andrew and the big kids to ride Splash Mountain, I took Forrest and Lottie to meet Winnie the Pooh and Tigger. I was so delighted when Forrest unexpectedly ran to greet Winnie the Pooh. It was one of the best moments of the trip for me.
"Not usually, but for you I will get one." Eliza was so touched by his generosity. When he came back, he gave her a large lemonade, in place of the child size she had previously. Now that's the Disney spirit!
Forrest's arm are outstretched toward Minnie; waiting to be acknowledged.
It was darling.
Giving up, I put him back on the ground. He had the go-ahead from me to explore. Using the jackets I had spread out to save our spot, he made himself a pillow and immediately fell asleep...standing up.
It was until I heard him snoring that I finally felt like I could pick him up and put him in his stroller. And then he napped!
The parade, in my opinion, is definitely worth seeing more than once. I made sure this time we had access to the correct angles to video record the kids faces.
After choosing our souvenirs, we made it to the corn dog cart for dinner. The kids were so happy when we finally bought them that bag of cotton candy. As for Andrew and me, we chose dole whips. They are the best.
