We've never done Fantasmic and seeing your photos has made me really want to go and see it this trip. I can't believe your trip report I coming to an end already I've loved reading it and seeing the photos, Elsie has looked as if she's had the most magical time xx

I know right. Dave said it is because its covered traps the humidity or something! I dont know! I always expect it to be cooler with all the shade.

No costumes yet. Hard to know what size he will be as he is pretty tall. Will look out nearer the time
Megan's got her Cinderella one already and wants a tinker bell one top.

Aw thats cute! I love Elsie's Cinderella dress.

I have just started making Prince Adam (The beast human form) costume. Boys costumes are a lot harder.

Boo to the last day of your trip. I will be interested to see our your Adam costume turns out. There is far less choice for boys.

Love Fantasmic, I think it's my favourite too.

February 13th - Magic Kingdom Chef Mickey

Our last full day

We were still at park opening even though it felt like we had a lie in.

Today we were on a mission to see the last of the characters and everything they had to offer on Limited Magic True Love week.

Our first stop was the Prince and Princesses. This later in the week was reported to have a 2 and half hour wait we waited 15 minutes. Though it felt like forever. Elsie was pretty grumpy from her late night the night before.

We saw Rapunzel and Flynn



Elsie was still pretty grumpy but cheered up after a little chat with Rapunzel.
We also saw that Flynn still Rapunzels crown in his satchel. He really should give that back.

Then it was Aurora and Philip. Philip was really nice and offered to have Elsie for the day we were very tempted at the time as 10 minutes ago she was whining on the floor kicking her legs.







Love this picture it looks like Elsie has stolen Philip whilst Aurora just watches.

Philip offered to escort Elsie over to Cinderella and Prince charming who were waiting for Elsie. She had all four them to her self for a little bit and she loved it.



Cinderella looked just like she did when we saw her in Akershus she looked different the other days Oh how I look forward to Elsie asking me that when she grows up.



Again shoes were compared and when they found out I had the matching pair they were very impressed.


We headed over to see Snow White and her Prince but they were just leaving so decided we would come back on our way out. We went to find the Fairy Godmother. Well she had been moved twice she used to be by the Cinderella Fountain then where the new Fantasyland entrance is. Well the carriage was there and no one was waiting so Elsie had her photo there



we asked where the Fairy Godmother was and we finally found her.

There was quiet a wait Dave stayed in the line whilst Elsie and I walked around. We saw Mary Poppins and Bert but have no evidence as the photo pass person had left and I didn't have my camera. Elsie did get a valentines day card though. They were giving out signed cards from each couple.

We went back to Dave and took some photos of Elsie waiting these are some of my favourite pictures of her.


Cheeky


Yes I am a princess and this is my good side!

Fairy G was great and wanted to pick Elsie up and kiss her lol! Elsie didn't mind she just likes the attention lol!



What next? Of course more characters it is more like who next? LOL

The white rabbit well the person in front of us is about to have their go but Alice came out as well so that was an added bonus even though we had already seen her.





Elsie loved how soft the rabbit was you can see her leaning on his hand!

After all that talk about tea we went and got a drink to join our next line.

Tiana and ....



Well Naveen was there but Elsie had another one of her glorious paddys as it was our turn and wouldnt go near Naveen! We have never had this before out of 5 trips to Disney apart from Gaston this is the only character Elsie hasn't liked.



He is trying to sneak in. Can you see how stiff Elsie has gone?

Naveen asked us to bring Jaffa Cakes next time! Odd but OK I will.



I told you we would be back Tinks



And Periwinkle was back this time another character ticked off. I actually think she was our last character :D

After visiting Pixie Hollow we made our way out Madam wasn't happy. We did stop and get a card from Jasmine and Aladdin but not actually for a photo.

On our way out Snow White was on an hour break and had only just left so we won't be seeing her and her prince. Oh well she is only my favourite. SOB SOB!

We got the boat over to Wilderness Lodge this is one of my dream resorts I love it.

We had lunch and then got the bus back to Magic Kingdom and then the bus back to SSR for a rest

February 13th - Magic Kingdom Chef Mickey PART 2

Back at the villa I did some packing and managed to more loads of washing we come home with only two days of dirty laundry LOVE IT!

I also tried to change our ADR as we hadnt seen wishes yet and I had booked our dinner at 7 and Wishes was on at 8 thinking we would have already done wishes. Oh well it wasn't meant to be this trip! A reason to come back

We waited and waited and waited for a MK bus and nothing the 3rd Epcot bus was coming so we got on that thinking we will get off get the monorail to TTC and then monorail to Contemporary for our Chef Mickey ADR we had plenty of time. It poured down when we got on the bus and it got worse and worse. First night we didn't grab our coats as well as it had been so hot all day!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok we are under cover once we are on the monorail its OK. At Grand Floridian the conductor announces that the monorail will stop at MK and that will be it due to a technical fault! What? It was pouring still! Oh no!

We ran to the Contemporary! They were handing out towels as you got in because it was so wet.

We had our photo whilst waiting for our table looking a bit washed out and waited to be called.

Elsie would have rather have stayed playing with the children then come to dinner.

Dinner wasn't great the atmosphere was so flat and we were really disappointed we had really been looking forward to it and it being our last night.

Minnie was rubbish she didn't bend down for Elsie or interact at all.





Elsie spinning her napkin.



Im not even going to post Donalds photo they aren't great. He was rude. The table next to us had 2 little boys one of the boys was having his drink Donald took it out his hand posed and walked off! It wasn't busy in here they weren't being rushed round.



Luckily Mickey made up for every one else he was great acting as if Elsie really was Minnie Mouse.



After the characters I struggled to keep Elsie at the table she wasn't interested so whilst Dave finalised the bill Elsie and I went back in the waiting area and she played.

It wasn't raining now and Wishes was finishing so we decided to go in to MK one last time the park was open till 10 with the Electric parade on at 9. With the early fireworks and the rain the park was so quiet.

We went to see Minnie and Mickey and get a card from them as well! Luckily Minnie had cheered up since dinner. Again will enjoy explaining to Elsie how Minnie and Mickey got here before us and changed when she is older.





We managed to do Enchanted Tales with Belle with almost walking on.



We got to see Belle's new dress as well. I like it but I don't like the hair. I don't think she looks like Belle at all though.



We had a look round the circus area it was empty no one around at all. We thought about going in and seeing the characters but we were all pretty tired and had a long day to follow so we made our way out.



Good Bye castle
