Day 3 dawned quite early...the late night GO adventure didn't help much!
We arrived a bit early, so we stored our gear inside the stroller (thank GOODNESS for the rain shield) and played around in one of the German stores.
GO very much liked having a pink sword and doing battle with her brothers.
Epcot has done a great job of trying to make the World Showcase more "child-friendly", starting with this cool mask that CW made. As we traveled to each country, he received a stamp from that country, plus a cardboard hanging item (Germany was a teddy bear, Norway a Viking Ship, Japan an origami frog, etc).
He did a great job entertaining GO with his mask.
CW received a secret mission and had to report to Italy to meet a secret agent. When we got to Italy, there was a small covered wagon hidden behind one of the buildings and a secret agent gave him a cell phone and sent him on a mission to save Japan.
This was SO COOL! As we walked around Japan, the cell phone actually activated certain things (he had to harness the power of water, fire and wind).
At the Koi Pond, water spurted when he activated his phone.
Then he searched for the wind chimes and they rang.
Then he made fire appear in this grey urn.
Finally, he had to go into the Toy Store and stand next to some pictures - and when he activated his phone a GIANT robot baby came out of the top of one of the displays! You should have seen the other customers freak out! It was so funny!
This really was one of Disney's brighter ideas...
By that time, we had to move quickly to take GO to the Baby Care center to change her and give her a little dinner. We were having a Princess Dining Experience for her 1st Birthday, and didn't want to be late. She wore her pretty green dress to meet the Princesses.
First, Belle was waiting at the entrance.
Then Cinderella came around, in her ballgown.
Snow White made it by our table, and you'll notice GO isn't nearly as upset tonight.
Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), also visited us.
Finally, we were able to meet Ariel, who had legs and her ballgown, as opposed to flippers (fins?).
B10 and CW would make faces when I asked to take a picture of them with the Princesses, but as soon as any Princess began talking they were ALL excited to carry on a conversation - it was so funny... :D
GO found the light sticks and wanted to eat them (and have another sword battle with her brothers).
I had dumplings and mashed potatoes, it was SO good. B10 had a herb-dusted beef tip dinner, that he was really excited about. He is doing such a good job ordering off the adult menu.
Then to get a golf ball - which wouldn't work... Luca, the shopkeeper, tried to force it to work, which was hilarious in itself.
Then on to the Tea Shop, where B10 gave the shopkeeper a code word and received a packet of Indian Spiced Chai tea, which he can't wait to try.
Finally, he and CW saved Kim Possible, before he had to return his secret agent phone.
At home, everyone put on new pajamas, and tomorrow - our second Magic Kingdom day!
