We loved the Wilderness Lodge especially because of the quick and easy boat transportation straight to the Magic Kingdom. We only had to ride the bus once to get to Animal Kingdom!
Another Main Street USA picture
We had a fast pass to meet Ariel and rode her rode and did lots of rides around Fantasy Land that afternoon after lunch.
We made a stop at the Main Street Confectionery at one point during the day to check out all of the yummy treats. Decisions, decisions.
We spotted Lady Tremaine and the Step Sisters while walking around. We didn't wait to meet them but I did snap a quick picture.
We only had one small mishap our entire trip and that was when we discovered Ellie had laid down her autograph book and pen somewhere along the way. We frantically ran back and re-traced our steps as best we could, but there was no way we were going to find it. Luckily, a super sweet lady working in the HUGE Emporium store gave us a new book and pen. We couldn't believe it! It didn't replace our autographs, but we kept pushing on and were grateful for her sweetness. Also grateful we still have all of our pictures! As we were walking out of the Town Hall building to check the Lost and Found, we just happened upon a tiny line to meet Princess Aurora. It was like it was meant to be! She was by far my favorite too. So sweet, so attentive, so in character! She took her time with us and carried on the best conversation with Ellie. It was perfect!!
We also decided on this day to add the Park Hopper Pass option so we could head over to Epcot. Another great decision! We loved Epcot and spent a good amount of time there. We rode SOARIN'. Space Ship Earth, ate a Dole Whip and a Mickey Pretzel, met Snow White and Chip and Dale, much more and had a blast!
We tried and tried to get an appointment at the Bippidi Boppidi Boutique but that proved impossible so we let Ellie have her face painted and she chose the Tinkerbell design. Once again, ONLY AT DISNEY! Ha!
We stopped to play some drums and stroll around the World Showcase for a bit.
Yes, the Dole Whip (or pineapple soft serve in Epcot) definitely lives up to the hype! Delicious!
Ellie participated in the coconut races which were fun and she even got a lei. It was a great meal!
It was another wonderful day!
