On Saturday, we headed back to the Magic Kingdom because, well, it's the best! And, we had a very special appointment for Anna, Bibbidi Boppity Boutique! We had some time beforehand though so we did some rides and made sure we went and drove the race cars in Tomorrowland for Kyle.
After some rides and the cars, I took Anna to meet Rapunzel before her appointment. She was VERY excited to meet her until she could see me sweating the time and then all she could ask about was being late to the Bibbidi Boppity Boutique.
For those of you that don't know what Bibbidi Boppidi Boutique is, it is relatively new at Disney World. Your child can go the salon and pick out an outfit (princesses for girls/pirates for boys) and then have their hair and makeup done as well as a thousand other options that they try to sell you! It is quite overwhelming for an adult to make choices in that place, much less a five year old with sparkling dresses and crowns and accessories hanging all over the place. However, it is done so well with their "transforming" abilities. When we first arrived, Anna was able to choose which princess she wanted to "become" and she chose Sofia, which thankfully had JUST come in to the boutique the day before. We had stopped by the "Castle Couture" shop before because I didn't think they had Sofia dresses available at the boutique. Anna had trouble understanding the whole thing and so we ended up just going to the salon and it all worked out! So, after you pick your princess and "package", you wait with your special invitation.
After a little anticipation brews, one of the "fairy godmothers" comes and gets you to get dressed. They take you to the back and after saying, "Bibbidi, Boppity, Boo!", they open the dressing room curtain and there is YOUR dress hanging there ready for you to get into it. Anna wanted one of the fairy godmothers to get her dressed and was disappointed when she was left with me!
By that afternoon, Kyle was in need of a nap...
We split up at this point so that Anna could rest too and Brice and Justin could do some big kid stuff. Then after dinner we stayed for the Electrical Parade. This is one of my favorites. They changed some of the floats from the last time we were there and they were really neat. I had to post the next picture because she reminds me of a picture in a bride magazine when they tell the models to NOT smile. I never understood this because aren't you supposed to be happy on your wedding day??!
