I'm so glad we took the time to make sure we got special pictures with as many characters as possible at Disneyland. We waited to meet the princesses for over an hour and a half, but it was worth it in the end. The kids were so excited. Thumbelina had been hoping she'd get to meet Mulan, because her therapist said she looked like her. Then when we met Princess Jasmine she actually told Thumbelina that she had hair "just like Fa Mulan's"! That made her day!
We ended up getting pictures with all the main characters, except Daisy Duck. We only got a quick photo of the kids near Goofy because he wouldn't stand still. Brother almost knocked Buzz Lightyear over in his excitement. The kids didn't seem to know who Chip and Dale were. We also saw several minor characters, but didn't take pictures with them. We saw Cinderella's fairy godmother, and some evil queens. The kids also got to meet the Mad Hatter. It was really fun for them. Brother actually thinks that Winnie the Pooh was real and was frustrated that Tigger hopped away too fast to hug him. My one regret is that I didn't get a picture of Daniel with Donald Duck, since he does such a great impression of him.
