One of the first things Bethany wanted to do in Disneyland on her birthday, was go and visit Halloween Donald… so dressed in her Snow White princess dress (hey – she can wear whatever she wants on her birthday right?) we lined up for Donald.
Donald tried to scare us, so I casually turned around and mentioned that Peking Duck was one of our favorite dishes to eat.. mmm… mmm… mmm… Donald was a bit scared of me after that. 😉 (Naughty mummy scaring Donald).
Next, Bethany wanted to see Policeman Chip, and Convict Dale… Mitchell really liked these 2 guys!
Lots of rides, lunch, and later into the afternoon, Bethany found her first princess of the day… Belle.
Bethany got very shy around Belle, but she was still able to ask Belle to sign her birthday Autograph book. 🙂 Belle then told Bethany that her dress was so pretty she should really go and visit Snow White… so, we did!
Snow White commented to Bethany on what a lovely choice of dress she had on… hehehe.
It was pretty cute, Despite Bethany having stickers plastered all over it. Every time a ‘cast member’ gave her a sticker, she would peel it before we could blink, and place it on her dress somewhere. By the end of the night she was covered in them.
And yes… again.. it was nigh on 9 pm when we left Disneyland. We also decided to bite the bullet and buy annual passes. We KNOW we’ll be back for Christmas, and sometime around Mitchell’s Birthday… and I can use the annual pass during school holidays for a novel day out… The annual pass wasn’t too expensive. With both my kids being Mickey nuts, and myself a fan of Disney as well.. I am sure we’ll get our value out of the passes. It’s only about 30 minutes drive in the car… and the tolls are around the same as what I would pay to get to Taronga Zoo… so it makes an interesting substitute. 😉
As we put Bethany into the car she said ‘This was a great birthday’, and then fell asleep no more than 2 minutes later. I’m not sure if we could top this birthday for her, but both kids had a lot of fun and came away exhausted but smiling.
