DIsneyworld Day 2: Cinderella’s Castle

Our second full day at Disneyworld was bound to be an exciting one. After all, we had lunch plans with Cinderella!
We arrived at the park early to beat some of the crowds to the rides. First though, I discovered the barber shop hidden off to the left side of the main entrance to the park on Main Street.

The tradition there is that first haircuts get a sprinkling of confetti and colored hair spray, but they gave the confetti to Ellie and we skipped the hairspray. It was actually a really good haircut, which I desperately needed after the first two days being so windy.

Ellie really liked the Peter Pan ride most of all. We went on that at least 4 times. I’m not sure if it was because she had just seen the movie, or because it was a nice slow, not scary ride, but so it was. Since we were there early, there also wasn’t much of a line to see the popular characters like Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.

Finally, it was off to lunch with Cinderella and the Princesses. Ellie was really excited to meet Cinderella, she almost forgot what to do.

She also had lots of fun identifying the other Princesses and seeing them as they stopped by our table.

Belle from Beauty and The Beast.

Snow White. She looked probably the least like her namesake out of all the Princesses.

Evan got in on the act too. Unsurprisingly, he was a big fan of the Fairy Godmother. She liked him too.

Princess Aurora, aka Sleeping Beauty.

Thrilling, as you can see. We took a break shortly after lunch and went back to the hotel for a much-needed rest. This seems like a good time to show the hotel.

Nice and quaint.
Then it was back to the Magic Kingdom to check out the nighttime sights (good thing we took a nap!).

The Spectromagic parade. Those Kiss wannabes really freaked me out.

Cinderella was a busy lady today.

Minnie closed out the parade, and our long day.
