Day 3, DISNEY.
The kids who had been excited about meeting Mickey Mouse since before we left actually weren’t that excited when the actual day came. They wanted to stay at the hotel and use the pool!
Until we got there.
Initially it was a bit of a photo feat as we met our hosts (Mickey and Minnie) and several Princesses to get photos. Rapunzel liked Miss 2’s shoes (they have flashy lights in them) and Miss 2 asked to see Rapunzel’s shoes in return. And then all the princesses were required (by Miss 2) to pull up their hems to show their shoes too.
Then we got into Fantasyland and it was about It’s a Small World and rides for a while. We bumped into Pooh and Tigger and they have al,ost the best queue with all these interactive things for the kids to play with in the queue. But this was outdone by the waiting area for Dumbo, an inside a/c playground, with those buzzer you get at some resturants when you order your meal to call you into your queue for the ride. The irony is that Mrs decided to sit this ride out and was outside in the heat waiting for us, lol.
We finished up meeting Tiana, from the Princess and the Frog. Miss 5 was wearing a Tiana dress all day, but we’ve never seen the movie. By this time, about 6 they had had enough and so we headed home.
But what about
Something I’ve noticed recently is that for some reason Mulan isn’t on any of the Disney Princess stuff. I noticed as my two have been watching Mulan and Mulan 2 in the non stop way kids have. And it’s hard to find stuff for them.
The simple and obvious answer is that Mulan isn’t a Princess, so doesn’t fit. She might save China and the Emperor, but her fiancé is a General’s son. Feel a bit sorry for Mulan actually.
Pocahontas is in the same boat of not being a princess.
Meanwhile Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, Ariel, Belle and now Tiana and Rapunzel get to be on everything.
And Tinkerbell…. But she’s not a princess, she’s a fairy.
