Gigi Goes to Disneyland!

We spent a wonderful day at the "Happiest Place on Earth" on Gigi's 5th Birthday! It's a whole new place when seen through the eyes of a child, especially on her first visit to this magical land!

Papa and Gigi just before entering the park.
Mommy made Gigi a Minnie Mouse shirt to wear with her Minnie ears 
which she also wore on Halloween!

David, Hallee, Gigi, Nicole and Brody
Unc A and Micah joined us.
First ride for us was the all new Star Tours.
  Dumbo and the Carousel were both hits for all the little ones.  We all enjoyed the Tea Cups, Jungle Cruise and Autopia, too!  The grown-ups loved Pirates and Big Thunder as well!

Midday, Gigi changed into her princess Belle dress and had her face painted.

We explored ToonTown and took a tour of Mickey's house and the rest of the ToonTown.
Gigi and a reluctant Brody had their picture taken with Minnie Mouse.

In the afternoon we visited the Disney Princess Fantasy Faire.
Gigi was getting a bit tired,
But, despite the almost hour wait to Meet the Princesses, when asked what her favorite thing about Disneyland was, Gigi still replies:  "Meeting the princesses, Cinderella and Tiana!"
Gigi and Cinderella, her favorite princess, shared a chat, a hug and an autograph;
Gigi getting Tiana's autograph!
 It was truly a fantastic day!!
