Florida Vacation Part 1: Cinderella’s Royal Table

Image

Hey guys, sorry that I haven’t written in awhile. I actually went to Disney World and Universal Studios last Tuesday and got back on Sunday. It was a jam packed trip. On Sunday I was more than happy to watch three hours of Hart of Dixie reruns on Netflix when I got home. What you can’t exactly see is that I ended up carrying a princess backpack the majority of my trip… my niece was only three and it seemed unfair for me to be the only person not carrying anything so… Honestly, if it was anybody but my niece I probably wouldn’t have, but it’s Disney World. You kind of can’t say no to kids there, it’s impossible.

I did a lot of research on Disney World before we went. A LOT. I knew about fast passes, what rides I wanted to try, where everything was located, the apps-you name it and I probably had an inkling about it. I’m going to try to go over the highlights, because we all know that it would be easy to write a book about this place. I will say this first, and I’ll get the haters out of the way. I liked Universal Studios better than Disney World. I know…. don’t hate me too much.

Disney has a new process of handling tickets. Instead of the same old passes or cards, you now have to use your DNA. Ok, that sounded wrong when I typed that, but what I mean is you have to scan your card and they scan your fingerprints. It’s a little creepy, and a little obsessive, but if you don’t have the same DNA as the card your holding, good luck, A problem we ran into was mixing up our cards. Constantly. It wasn’t until I started marking them with our names and details (Which were park hoppers which were one day passes) that we were finally golden.

Disney World is this amazing magical place that can take anyone by surprise. I was astounded by how captivated the princesses made me. The picture above is the sign for what we call, the princess breakfast. This is something you have to make reservations for, DO NOT decide to do this on a whim. You won’t get in. Also, make sure you carpool or are aware of your entire party’s whereabouts. We were late getting into Disney World because of a card mix up and were almost left behind. Half of your party can’t arrive at one time, then another. Everyone enters at the same time. I get it, but I think it’s a really unfortunate rule that could easily make or break your day. It’s in the castle along with various princesses who visit you throughout your meal (The castle is technically Cinderella’s, but I consider it a communal castle).

In the beginning  you are allowed to take a picture with a professional picture with a princess (We had Cinderella, but I’m not sure if that’s always the case). We were made a priority and took the elevator since one of our family members was  in her last trimester of pregnancy, but otherwise be prepared to take the forty something stairs up to the castle. Luckily, my mom did not go because stairs are her worse enemy with her legs.

We then were served pastries to bide our hunger (Above). They were delicious. My personal favorite was the apple pastry. We then were introduced to the princesses one by one. My niece was in awe as each princess came up to her and chatted. I was wearing a shirt that was nautical themed, and when Ariel (My favorite princess) said she liked it, I admit I giggled and felt adored. They are really sweet to the kids, and have great background stories and character traits. Snow White tended to hop and skip everywhere she went, Jasmine talked about her time in Agrabah, etc. My niece was very disappointed that Rapunzel wasn’t there, but we soon found out that she was in fact in a separated attraction since she was a new princess, so the crisis was averted. Our breakfast was delicious. I got the caramel apple stuffed French toast and I was left completely stuffed and happy. I would say it was the best meal I had while in Disney.

Also, below is a picture of the wand and star they give each child as they leave the breakfast. Super cute.
