Dinner at Cinderella's Castle

In case you forgot, this is about me reliving my childhood...

The minute our tickets were booked I started looking into reservations at Cinderella's castle.  I searched and searched and found ONE opening during the entire week we were there.  I took it.  It was for 9:20 p.m.  I figured that wouldn't be so bad, since it was only 7:20 our time.  I failed to calculate that we would be getting up at 6 a.m. our time to get to the park when it opened =)  It was a long day, but it was so worth it.  I wouldn't change it for anything.  Ok, I would change the part where I threw a hissy fit and Eric threatened to take me to the car (yep, that happened), but otherwise it was great.  Princesses get me worked up, what can I say?

As you wait for your reservation, you get to meet Cinderella and get your picture taken with her...let me tell you, this homegirl has some serious patience!  I couldn't do it, I just couldn't.  I do have professional shots of this, but I can't quite get to thinking about digitizing them.

During dinner, selected princesses make an entrance, and then work the tables.  Amos and Maggie loved it.  Audrey was, quite ironically, passed out cold in her 'Sleeping Beauty' shirt.  Mags managed to wake up and pull it together.

You can't tell from the first picture, but Audrey is totally on that chair between me and Pop.

As the princesses approached the table, they went right for Maggie, but Amos wasn't having any of that.  As each one approached he would quickly sheath his sword, and then get in his face time, and usually a hug.

Our dinner ran so long, we didn't finish until an hour after the park had closed.  It was actually super creepy being in the darkened park.  We couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a picture in front of the castle with no other people in it though...

Best night ever.
