Last time we went to Disney, the girls were terrified of Mickey and such masked characters. We did the Character breakfast and it was not so well received. This time the girls were still hesitant about seeing Mickey, and when they saw the White Rabbit with Alice, they were a bit skittish.
Mom, Dad, Jason, Katy, and the boys went to the character breakfast this year, but we opted on skipping this since we had the before mentioned princess breakfast the next day (and it was at the crack of dawn!).
We got to Epcot early the day of the Princess breakfast, and got out of the breakfast right before the park opened. Matt and Dad went to ride Fast Track, while Mom and I went over to the Character meet and greet area just to see what the girls thought of Mickey. Honestly, we expected a complete disaster.
When we got to the door, the workers ushered us in, and there stood Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto. And we had them all to ourselves. Leah was in heaven, and surprised me by running up to Mickey and immediately giving him a hug. It continued down the line as I tried to snap pictures and organize both of them. It was great because they just skipped to who they wanted to see most, and reverted back to the others, returning to the same one if they wanted to.
Hannah was a little more hesitant, but warmed up once she got to Donald. Leah needed no introductions...
Once Hannah got to Donald, she started warming up. She did not warm up to goofy. Guess she is pretty big. When she finished the line up, she realized she really wanted to give Mickey a hug. But there was a line at this point and I was not going to wait after we had them all to ourselves for 10 minutes. Thankfully, the lady at the front understood my plight and Hannah's regrets and allowed Hannah to get her photo opportunity and hug from Mickey.
So That day was the best Disney day ever. We saw Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel, and Belle, plus Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, and Donald.
We never did see Jasmine while we were in Disney, and saw Daisy only once but the girls were napping and waking them up was not an option. Not too bad though!
This is my favorite action sequence- it captures so much
