Welcome back everyone!
If you missed part one to my family Disneyland trip, check is out here.
The next day we did our big day at Disneyland itself.
We started off the morning with my niece getting "princess-ified" at the Bippity Boppity Boutique
Afterwards my niece and nephew got to meet some princesses, but Belle was the biggest hit with both of them
When we got outside my favorite princess, Merida, was there to take pictures and sign autographs and I immediately got in line. Unfortunately, she was at the end of her time there so they were switching her out for Rapunzel.
And yes, I met her too
Yes, that is a Merida bow and arrow set my parents bought me...yes I really am 24 ha!
The whole day was spent running around the park for different rides and taking family pictures
"Helping" my nephew get the sword out of the stone
The castle was stunning for the 60th anniversary
It was the first time I've ever been on the Dumbo ride, my sister and nephew are in the elephant behind us.
Since my niece got to do the Bippity Boppity Boutique we just had to get my nephew into the Padawan training. My brother wore a Wookie hat and I held a sign in front of my nephew that said "Pick me, my daddy, the Wookie, just got back from deployment"
And they picked him!
He got to fight Darth Vader
Afterward we took him to make his own lightsaber, with the help of Uncle Michael, our resident Star Wars expert
The lightsaber is bigger than him!
My sister and I were standing with our backs to the window and suddenly heard pounding
The stormtroopers were walking around and scared the crap out of us.
We watched the new parade and the new fireworks show. Both were extremely beautiful and when it started to "snow" during the fireworks we all got a little choked up watching the amazement on the kids faces.
It was an amazing trip to celebrate with my entire family.
