The awe and pure joy in this little girls face was worth every minute of our 48 hour trip to the happiest place in the world! From opening to closing our little cricket just smiled, ooooohhhhed and awwwwwed the entire time...well except for the two hour nap in the middle of the happiest place on earth.
If you asked her what her favorite ride was she'd tell you Dumbo or maybe the train ride.
But meeting Tigger and Pooh put her completely over the top of joy! We were quite hesitant about how she'd react to these giant real life characters that she LOVES....she wasn't bothered in the least and pushed people out of her way to get to them and give them the biggest hug and kiss on the nose. The SWEETEST thing EVER!!
And then the most coveted of all meetings....Oh the awe! There were tears but only on my part as I watched my daughter give a hug and have a little chat with a mouse about his show that is her favorite to watch. The picture is horrible but I actually kinda like it....the room has horrible lighting and Big J had the camera because I was a bubbling mess of tears and I really wanted to just watch her meet the mouse. I do have to say that lugging my big camera around for 12+ hours was hard, I didn't get enough pictures and I even wacked a poor kid in the head with it once. Oops! I want to go back with a point and shoot and do it all over again. :)
This trip was more than I had ever imagined! I was worried about the overstimulating atmosphere but our girl did great! I fretted about the rides being to dangerous for our sprout, but she was totally safe in her daddy's arms and all she wanted to do was ride them over and over and over, especially the roller coaster in T Town! I was concerned about spending the money but then someone in line came up to us and gave us an extra ticket and then I knew it was meant to be and to just go and enjoy the day....and we did just that! And now we hear alllll day long, "when can we go to Disneyland again mommy daddy??"
