Arrived at MK and went straight in to see the Princesses. It was still pretty chilly so I tried my walking in Springtime line on Princess Aurora that bombed so terribly yesterday. She lit up like a Christmas Tree! She loved it. She was very impressed.
Then we saw Belle, Liz and her talked awhile:
Then we met a very beautiful Cinderella:
The photographer loved our shirts by the way. He gave them a good long look. Then it was on to see Tink. Rosetta was with her.
We had them sign our wall hangings as vacation was nearing an end and we had Tink and Mickey and Minnie to go yet. Tink remembered us from before and noted I had not called her Stinker Bell or Tinker smell and she was glad we had made up for our differences, and she was glad to see us again.
Took in a few attractions then had lunch at Pecos Bills. Good place to eat! Then we went back to Mickey and Minnies to get them to sign and complete our wall hangings:
Mickey stole a kiss from Liz, but Minnie made up for it.
By now the fastpasses we got for the Princesses were good so we went to see them. Cinderella recognized us and told us we brightened her day by coming to see us again. I felt moved to bow:
It’s always good to brighten Cindy’s day. Bell and Liz talked for awhile again:
Aurora was beautiful as always,:
Now we went back to fantasy land with no real plan, just lingering around and if we saw something we wanted to do we did it. After of course, Liz took a little nap:
We saw Tianna:
Never met her before but she was just fantastic. Could there be a shirt in her future? Hmmmm.
Then we saw Tink's old flame, Peter pan:
And I took another picture by Cinderella’s dress she was originally going to wear for the ball. I don’t know why but I find this very very moving for me. Almost brings me to tears:
Now I have actually never owned a pair of Mickey ears, but if I were to buy some, I think I found them:
By now dusk was upon us so we headed back to Epcot for a quick walk around then back to the resort. We knew tomorrow was a big day (Valentine’s day!) so we wanted to be ready for it. Here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store for tomorrow:
Breakfast at Akershus with a familiar Aurora. Some special surprises at Epcot with the Princesses, and the most incredible night ever at 1900 Park Fare (We find out how slippers fit into the title.) And Many Many more unknown people take our picture. Stay tuned! You won’t want to miss this one!
Hoping I can get this next update out by this weekend.
We arose early and headed to Epcot. We were going to joyfully embrace a Princess overload today! Akershus for breakfast, then 1900 Park Fare for dinner and all the Princesses we can meet in between. After all it is Valentine’s day and our vacation ends tomorrow so we HAD to make this one count. (And make it count, we did!) At Akershus, Belle was in her room for the picture as usual:
Then Aurora was first:
I was sure it was the Jealous Aurora who tried to win me over to her side several trips ago. She gave me a playful hard time on my Cinderella fascination. (or did she call it an obsession?)
Then a very nice Snow White:
And a very friendly Cindy and Ariel:
As Princess Aurora was walking out I took the Princess Aurora shirt out of my Satchel (I stowed it in there for something planned for later), showed her the shirt, then put my finger to my lips, looked over at Cinderella who had her back to us and said Shhhhh! She stopped, smiled and said “When are you guys coming back again?” Could it be they look forward to our visits?
Then we headed to innoventions, and did a few things in there. Sum of all Thrills, etc, then embarked around the world and saw Marie. Liz had her sign a pink shirt of France:
Then we saw Belle:
I told her the Beast should give her a Kindle for Valentine’s day. Staying wonderfully in character she replied “I’ve heard about those, but I couldn’t figure out how to turn the page.” Wonderful:
She liked my shirt too:
By now we were ready for a snack so Liz got a Churro and I got my snack - a Dos Equis. Then we headed over to see Snow White in Germany and HER PRINCE CHARMING WAS THERE!
It was a great meeting and we had them sign our books. Then we heard Prince Philip was over in France with Aurora so we were off like a shot. Running all the way around World Showcase like a couple of kids running for the ice cream truck. It was great, we were laughing all the way and we were sure none of our friends back home would understand this at all. So glad we have our Passporter friends to share this with. One of our cell phones rang and we answered it “Hey , we can’t talk right now, we gotta run if we’re gonna catch Princess Aurora with her Prince Phillip!” Hmmm who was that we said too anyway, hon?
I had Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip sign my Aurora shirt I showed the jealous one in Akershus earlier.
It was great to meet the two Princes. I could tell they were intimidated by me though, so we headed back to the resort to swim and freshen up for a nice dinner at 1900 Park Fare. We arrived right on time, we were the first seating and ate our meal rather quickly hoping to be done by the time the characters came. We were greeted first by a very elegant Cindy who was thrilled to see us and seemed a little more happy than usual as she greeted me with a hug:
I know we met her at least one other time in our trip, we gave her a velvet Rose, then the Prince came to greet us:
This is when everything broke loose. We were greeted by the stepsisters carrying a manager in tow (never a good sign, or so I thought!) who chatted with us awhile the other night. The manager brought up a gift bag for us!
It had slippers in it with the two stepsisters dresses on them, to replace my Cinderella magic slippers, no doubt:
And a shirt with the two step sisters on it!
Liz got a little Cinderella play set, which in all the confusion we forgot to get a picture of, I was astonished. What a touching gesture this was. I had to get up and give the sisters a big hug:
Then we posed for pictures:
Then this happened:
They peppered me with Kisses!
At this point I realized we were attracting quite an audience. I felt like the paparazzi were on to us because lights were flashing everywhere! People we didn’t know were taking pictures of this spectacle and my lipstick marred face. I tried on the slippers and they yelled for Cinderella to come over and see they got me to take the shoes with her off and put theirs on.
Cinderella apologized profusely about what happened and was very understanding, thank goodness! I thanked them all again and they were on their way. What a memorable, magical moment they gave us! A man at the table next to us told me every man in there was jealous and wanted to be me. I heard another table ask Druzila what was going on and she sighed and said “Every year they come here and we try to steal him away, but it NEVER works. Sighhh, he must love her just like the Prince loves Cinderella or something!” What a fantastic experience.
Liz thought it was all quite funny:
Well of course when this was over we had to go to the Magic Kingdom so I could show off my lipstick kiss marks. The Princess were our first stop. Princess Aurora didn’t know what to make of my face or my shoes:
Belle did NOT look amused!
And then there was my precious Cinderella. How would she react? Hmmmm. I don’t know if she was laughing or crying.
I was shaken but she helped me compose myself then we took a picture:
Then she did this:
She handled it gracefully and told us to come back and see her if we could, so we got fastpasses to do just that, then went to see Tink and Terrence:
Terrence was impressed with my obvious prowess with the women:
This Tink was perfect. She was sooo Hyper and was just chatting Liz up a mile a minute and looking at Liz’s photo book.
A well meaning cast member in the room came up to her and told Tink, “we need to keep the line moving, we are closing soon” Tink, replied “Yeah. Uh huh, Ok sure.” Then turned back to Liz and in typical Tinkerbell, in your face, I’m gonna do it my way and it’s gonna be sassy fashion said “Can we go look at your book again, Liz?” It was great.
After wards we stopped for a picture with another cast member we befriended, known as Lord Jim:
Then we saw Mickey and Minnie, but while in Line for them we stopped for a picture with another Cast Member we befriended from the Princesses and Marie meets. This is Mindy:
Inside, Mickey and Minnie thought the shoes and lipstick marks on my face were hilarious! They just couldn’t stop reacting. It was a great time with them:
We still had fastpasses to see the Princesses and it was close to closing by now so we hurried in to meet them. We were the first group let in after they had a break, and since Cinderella was the last one they were to meet, she had some time alone until the line cycled through Aurora and Belle to her. She took that time to smile and us and pose a little for us as she saw us looking at her and smiling and no doubt remembered us from earlier. She then told us to take as many pictures as you like and she started dancing around the room. It was just beautiful, and graceful, and in a word, Magical!
I’m so glad she did that. It was like she was dancing just for us.
Then we meet Aurora again who was happy to see us again:
And Belle who seemed to be in a better mood with me now:
And our dancing Cinderella who was soooo Sincerely glad we came back to see her. We told her we came back to see he because we just didn't want this Valentine's day to end. She signed the cover of my photo book.
After this we headed back to the resort as it was close to closing and we had to pack up as tomorrow was our last day. Don’t worry though, still a little more magic to come! Breakfast at the castle and Terrence and I settle the Satchel vs Purse debate once and for all!
Hope you enjoyed our Valentine's day!

WOW!!!! What an AMAZING experience at 1900PF!! I can't believe the shoes!!! Did they have them specially made, just for YOU! You KNOW you guys make an impression on all the characters now (if you didn't already realize that!)!
Worth waiting for the story - and completely surpassed my expectations after the big build-up!
