Another early day…at least for Abby, Grace, Beth and me. We took the girls by bus to Magic Kingdom for what we thought was a 7:50 Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointment. We got there about 7:30 and it was already super hot. Abby was tired and cranky and I wasn’t doing much better. We stood in line and waited. It was 7:50 and they still hadn’t let us in. Beth asked and they still didn’t let us in. By the time it was time to go in, Abby was crying and said she wasn’t going to have her appointment. I didn’t push it and we made it to the castle where the Boutique was at. It wasn’t even open. It opened just after 8, so apparently we weren’t late. Anyway, Abby looked at some pictures in a brochure and then decided that she would do hair and make-up, but not nails. That was fine with me since she had cute Mickey Mouse and polka dot nails from Downstairs on 1st before we left. She ended up with the wild pink hair Pop Star look. It was great. Abby and Grace really had a great time.
After the Boutique, we met everyone at Tony’s Town Square for a Grand Gathering Character Breakfast. Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Donald were there. Cade was starting to warm up to the idea of characters and actually got close enough for a few pictures (while clinging to me for dear life!). Breakfast was good, as usual, and afterward we explored the Magic Kingdom! We spent most of the time in Fantasyland. We stayed together as a group of 11, which was fun. We left early afternoon and went back to the hotel to swim and rest. After dinner, we went back to Magic Kingdom with Mom and stayed for the Electric Parade and the fireworks.
