Shannon's favorite princess on this trip was Sleeping Beauty (Aurora). So many dolls... going to Disney was a dream come true!
We're on our way to the Castle to have breakfast with Cinderella before the park opens for the masses. Here's a rare shot of main street without a crowd.

We went on the flying carpet ride.
We met princess Jasmine, but we were afraid of Aladdin and Genie.
...but, when Shannon wasn't looking, they snuck into the picture anyway!
Shannon met a friend, Bella, the day before in Epcot. It turns out, they both had appointments at the same time for the Bippity, Boppity, Boutique to be made up as princesses.
Shannon was very excited. This was her favorite part of the trip.
Shannon didn't complain when the hair dresser took the knots out of her hair.
Wow, Shannon is looking like a princess already...
...blowing her nails dry...
At the end, they turn her around in her chair so she can see what she looks like. This is a picture from the mirror.
Later that day, we took a safari ride and saw lots of animals at the Animal Kingdom.

We went to MGM the next day. Out of the large crowd, they picked Shannon to be the princess of the day and gave her VIP seating and presented her with a rose in front of an audience of thousands. Unfortunately, the man in blue stood up just as Maureen took this picture.
Here's Shannon showing the rose she was given from Bell with her VIP pass.
