We woke up and headed off to the tea party. As we walked up to the castle, we saw two village staff members at the door. They welcomed us into the empty, dark castle. We were the only ones there besides a few volunteers, one of them was ready with a camera. To be honest, it was a little strange and I was starting to wonder what was happening and why we were the only ones there.
Heres what happened when Grandfather clock woke up the castle.
...as if that weren't enough, Belle asked Cami if they could ride on the carousel together.
Cami was beyond excited.
So off they went...
This special time with Belle was so incredible for Cami. It was another dream come true made possible by this amazing place! The magic was once again flowing through the air and Cami told me after that her heart was fluttering. She lights up when she talks about this experience and how much she loves Belle. Thank you to GKTW for putting this together for our Cami. It was above and beyond anything we could have ever dreamed up. Thank you to the amazing girl who played Belle so well and didn't even blink an eye at Cami's fuzzy little head, but instead kissed it and filled our hearts with love.
After breakfast we ran into these two again.
They were just walking down the street! At Disney theses characters would be swarming with kids, but here there was hardly anyone around. It was nice not to feel rushed.
Hasbro also designed and produced the first EVER custom edition of a Candy Land game just for Give Kids The World.
If you look closely at the game board you will see some of the many places we visited. You will also see some of the Characters I talk about later in this post.
They gave us one of these special edition Candy Lands to take home.
It will always bring back wonderful memories from this trip each time we play it.
Gotta love Candy Land!
After the park it was back to our villa for some NAP TIME..(oh yeah)!
We were ALL so tired and slept for 3 hours...having so much fun can be quite exhausting!
Poor us right?
I love this picture of Cami rockin' and relaxin'
After a bath and dinner we headed to the Winter Wonderland celebration.
Where we met Santa...
Santa told the kids they could go pick out any gift they wanted.
This took Cami awhile.
There was a Christmas parade, cookie decorating, snow cones, cotton candy, and story time with Mrs. Claus and Christmas music all around.
Before heading home, we finished the night up with a carriage ride.
After we got back to our villa, the kids had a surprise visitor knock at the door.
Ms. Merry (Mayor Clayton's wife, who is featured on the Candy Land box) came in her PJ's to tuck them in.
More like to get them all hyper and WILD!
She had them jumping on their beds and giggling like crazy!
It is THAT good!
That's all for now folks.
Day 5 it's back to the theme parks!
