OMG - Hands down...my favorite memory of our Disney Vacation this year was surprising my eldest daughter, Ariel, with a full-blown Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique make-over! We made the reservations for it in March '07 and we traveled to Disney in November. I don't know how I managed to keep it a secret all that time. But on Sunday November 18th we took her to see Cinderella's Castle and then right up to the boutique's front and told her, "SURPRISE - YOU'RE GOING TO BE A PRINCESS FOR THE DAY!" The look on her face...I can't even express it.
Then the shopping part came where she got to choose her dress, wand, etc... The way they do it, well, it brought tears to my eyes after the big reveal of her princess attire behind the curtain. She was simply beaming!
The whole experience was worth every single cent! It was just awesome! She still talks about it and we have so many photos from it that it's definitely something she will never forget.
Now to wait for 2009 when we go back again so that my youngest daughter, Aurora, can do it too!
