One of the highlights of our trip to Disneyland this spring was Adeline meeting so many princess. Magical doesn’t even describe her reactions. She was so overcome with joy and delight.
Her favorite princess was Cinderella and we met her twice! She didn’t realize that they were different women – she was simply delighted two times.
The first Cinderella we met was about 2 hours into our first day at Disney and Adeline couldn’t stop jumping when she saw her (see the 15 second video below). I will remember it my whole life.
She dresses up pretty much every day. This was a few weeks ago, at about 6:30 in the morning.
And when I went to Disney World for a conference a few weeks ago, I had to take a belly picture in front of the castle – for me and for her!
I love that Adeline loves Cinderella because she has always been one of my favorites as well. This week the trailer for the new Cinderella movie released and, like Adeline when she met Cinderella for the first time, I about came out of my skin.
The evening of the release, Adeline climbed up on the couch close to me and wanted to watch it again and again. Like me, she was overcome with the magic and beauty of the movie. It. looks. incredible.
I don’t know how Disney does it – takes a story we all know and love and somehow makes it more creative, more beautiful, more wonderful, but you can see that is going to be the case with this movie. Every time I watch it I get goosebumps. And the fact that they include Cinderella’s real mother… such a beautiful addition.
If you haven’t seen it, watch it below. I can’t wait for March when it releases. I think the baby and I will have to sneak away to a matinee to see it on release day.
Who is your favorite Disney princess? Are you excited for the new Cinderella movie?
