We had a 4:40 supper reservation at the Grand Floridian to dine with Cinderella and Prince Charming at Cinderella's Gala Feast, 1900 Park Fare. This has been a favourite for Rebecca and me each time we have gone to Disney. My oh my how she has grown and changed!! This pic is on the 'All Ears Net' website which is the best site I've found to answer any and all questions Disney related. I use it often as you can tell from the many links I have in these posts. Anyway, this is a picture of my sweetie that they have on their site that was taken in May of 2004 when we went to Disney together for the very first time. Isn't she a sweetie???
While we dined, we were once again visited by Royalty at our table!
Prince Charming (Victoria is on the left and my niece Rebecca is on the right)
and the always beautiful, Cinderella!
At one point in the dinner they even waltzed together and then invited the children to join them. It was wonderful!!
The restaurant where the dinner is held was updated last fall and what also changed were the characters at the dinner. The Fairy Godmother, Suzy and Perla (Cinderella's very helpful mice friends) have taken a break and in their place are the Evil Stepmother and the 2 stepsisters. Oh my....this change is wonderful, fun and hilarious as you can see by the pics below!!
As the girls were eating their supper the Evil Stepmother
approached our table and told the girls to, 'Sit up straight and eat their supper!' She commended Victoria about the veggies on her plate. Guess we're glad she arrived before we tackled the make-your-own sundae bar! :o)
Rebecca told her that she thought her dress was pretty and she said that obviously Rebecca had very good taste!
Next in line were the stepsisters and yes, they were as funny and ditzy in person as they are in their pictures! I can't remember their names so will just post pictures for you to enjoy.
After supper we hopped aboard the monorail and headed back to the Magic Kingdom.
The night was still young and even though it had started to rain it didn't dampen our spirits in the least and we still had much fun ahead of us.
We boarded the train and headed back to Toontown where we said good-bye to Mickey, not sure if we'd see him the next day or not.
We enjoyed some of the rides in Tomorrowland including Buzz Lightyear and the Speedway (which the girls loved as they were able to 'drive' although I think they enjoyed giving Grandma and me whiplash more so than driving! :o) One of our last rides of the night was the Mad Tea Party. What trip to Disney is complete without a ride on the spinning teacups?
We were able to see part of the fireworks which is another not-to-be-missed opportunity! They do an amazing show all set to music and story.
After a long, fun, amazing, exciting day at MK we headed back to our room. Sadly Grandma and I needed to pack our suitcases before heading to bed as tomorrow was going to be our last day and we'd also be flying home. It was hard to think of leaving already but we were so thankful for this trip that we didn't dare get sad that it was coming to an end.
One more day to share with you soon...
