A Pirate and A Princess (Disney Day 5)
On Friday, the Lilypad Family spent the day together, just the three of us. Pop Steve went to visit his aunt for the day, Nana and Auntie La headed off to EPCOT together, and we spent the day sleeping in, swimming and napping. Around 4 in the afternoon we headed off to the Magic Kingdom for a special Pirate & Princess Party.
The Magic Kingdom closed early to the public, and was only open for party participants. It was a wonderful way to see the Magic Kingdom, most of the rides were open but there were no lines for them. We rode the Barnstormer Rollercoaster 3 times in a row without even having to get off. There were also special events set up throughout the park and we were able to meet all of the princesses and Captain Jack Sparrow. LP loved being up front and center for the shows around the park.
We missed the special parade because Lilypad Princess did not want to leave Sebastian's Undersea Dance Party, but we really enjoyed the fireworks.
