It was our first time at Mickey’s Halloween Party with Lexi. The one and only time we had been to one was with our friends years before we had Lexi and it was an interesting expereince. This time we were excited to see how different it would be now that we are parents.
It was certainly different. :)
First of all, the 7 pm start time was suddenly a challenge, especially on those days without a nap. We did all we could to get Lexi to nap but she was just WAY to excited to be in Orlando to relax. So she stayed up full of energy until we were all dressed and got into the Disney bus. We made quite a spectacle while walking through the lobby to get to the Disney bus stop. People were stopping to look at us, children were running up. One family “chased” us all the way to the bus station and shyly asked if their toddler could say hi to me because she was convinced I was Anna.
It was actually kind of nice to “pretend” to be a princess for someone. She was absolutely smitten. It was so sweet.
