Everybody loves a Parade;)

Wednesday, April 20, 2011
I am sure y'all are getting sick of these Disney posts but this is the family scrapbook so I want to get it all here:)  I love the Disney parades.  I just do.  My family...well they were not as keen on them.  But after our lunch in the castle, we found a GREAT spot and parked ourselves down for the afternoon parade.   We all agreed that this was a fabulous parade.

Before the parade, park employees gave the kids hula hoops to play with

Kate and Harry love to hula hoop so this was a good distraction to pass the time and save our prime parade spots:)

I also took photos to pass the time.  Doesn't Dave look cute with the bibbidi bobbidi sash around his neck?

Kate was very excited to see Tianna.  She is not around as much as the other princesses.

Tips I learned:
~there are tons of parades at Disney. All of the parks have them.  My kids are not too interested in taking the time to see them. So, we don't force the issue.
~BUT this particular day, everyone was really worn out and moving slow.  SO, we got drinks and found a fabulous spot (in the shade) to just sit and hang out and wait for it to begin.  And guess what? We all really enjoyed it.

  5. I love the parades too! When we first walked into DW last summer, the same parade was about to begin!!

    I told the girls we were going to park ourselves and wait for the 5 minutes until the parade was to begin. I got goosebumps when it started. I loved it all. I got teary eyed remembering DW visits from the past, and the fact that I was now sharing it with my own kids.

    It was truly "magical". They had a ball!!

    Brill asks every.single.week. when are we going back. LOL

  7. I love looking at all your Disney pics Kim...I would love to take Lucy to the salon someday. She is so not into any of the princesses, and she does not watch the movies, so Disney is NOT on her radar...I think she would rather go to a Barefoot Contessa book signing than meet Cinderella...seriously!! :)
