Pink Saturday - Christmas Past

I am linking this post with Beverly's Pink Saturday Linkups at How Sweet the Sound.

Last Christmas we took the children to Disney World.  A bit unorthodox for us, we tend to stay home at Christmas.  Both Grandmothers live in town- but it was a lot of fun!

There were of course the challenges of taking a three year old to Disney during one of, if not THE, busiest times of year.  "Small World" was a perfect example.  Even with the fast pass we waited in line a little and she was done, done with lines, done with waiting and being very 3.  We stepped into the boat and she was literally on the floor of the boat having a hissy fit.  The boat turned the corner, she saw the first doll and heard the music-

that face is the transition from screaming because she was done to shrieking with delight.  It lasted until it was time to get out of the boat!

I love the small world - the many many many layers of movement and color are just amazing to me.

The highlight of that trip for me continues to be the lunch we had in Epcot- at Akershus.  The Princesses all walk through the dining room while you eat, they stop at each table, sign autographs and take photos. Snow White was my favorite, she said hello in perfect Snow White voice and then when my boys were being quiet asked "oh, are we all bashful today?" Ariel is a house favorite and she graciously took a photo with each of the girls individually.  I thought it was a very worth while addition to our time in the Disney Parks.

I was so pleased with the character dining at Akershus that I wrote about for Associated Content here
