Happy 5th Birthday sweet Sierra!
A new Ariel dress for her special day with hopes to see Ariel at some point today. We were quite disappointed when we arrived at Disney and tried to reserve a character princess meal for her birthday and were told they have been sold out for 6 months. We talked on the phone with reservation people, we went to customer service and pleaded with them to try to make something work, but no one could do anything. All the character meals (not only princesses) are ALL booked this week.
So we got ready and headed straight to the carousel for 4 or 5 rides...afteral "princesses have more then one horse to take care of", so we always have to ride many times.
Then on a whim as we left the horses for their day at the stables and we decided to drop into Cinderella's Table and see if there was a cancellation. Can you believe it??? There was one. She said we had to go immediately and we said wonderful!
First stop is meeting Cinderella at the front entranceway to the castle for pictures, and then up to the dinning area.
As you are seated and waiting for your meal you are visited by each princess. First for us was Aroura (Sleeping Beauty)
A Royal Celebration for sure! The all you can eat Breakfast also included a photo package. (At Disneyland you pay less for the meal (we did Ariels Grotto at Christmas) and then have to buy the package separately)
Here go Sierra and me past the big almost 2 hours wait! Fast passes don't eliminate the line, they just speed it up. What is taking everyone else 105 minutes, is taking us maybe 10 minutes.
And stopped by the castle for a last birthday photo.
|maybe tomorrow we can get one with less people in the background|
Then we went to the pool for a quick swim and it was time for bed! Ahhh life is good! I am happy to say that Sierra thought this was the best birthday ever! Thank goodness as we feel really bad that she is missing a typical birthday at home with friends and family. Even though we are in the middle of a trip and spent a day at a theme park just like any other for our duration here, people wished her a happy birthday over and over again, making her day special...and well eating with princesses and riding roller coasters might have helped too...Aayla sorry you get the short end of the stick with your October birthday. We'll be home by then so you are stuck with a typical birthday :)
Happy 5th Birthday Sierra!!!
We are glad you enjoyed your special day!
We were hoping for a hockey win tonight but it's going to game 7.
GO CANUCKS GO!!!
