[Aria's Disney Birthday Trip] Disney Trip #19, Day 3 - Magic Kingdom & Cinderella's Royal Table

On the third day of Aria's Disney Birthday Trip (you can find day one here and day two here) Aria and daddy slept in until 9. I was up at my usual time, but it was a nice little treat to get ready in the calm. Nobody asked me to wipe their butt once while I was trying to put on mascara. It was not only the final day of our trip but also Aria's actual 3rd Birthday!

When she finally slid out of bed she got to open up the day's advent book, which was Bear Stays Up For Christmas.

Then Aria and I went down to the lobby to take some pictures - in Christmas jammies and the Christmas necklace she got at MVMCP the night before.

Back up to our room we went so Aria could open up her advent activity. It said have a birthday dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table.

Chris dragged all the luggage to the car while I checked us out. And, then we were off to the Magic Kingdom for a whatever the birthday girl wants to do kind of day. That looked like a stop at Main Street Confectionery for an Olaf marshmallow, chocolate covered pineapple, and fudge, Main Street Starbucks for #coffeewithcharacter, and pink ice cream from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.

Her first destination was Dumbo's play set, which was thankfully not crowded like on day one. She played and then we flew. Then she picked the flying carpets but changed her mind when she saw the splash pad. She made a friend and ran around playing tag with him for a while.

She was hungry again so we stopped by Cosmic Ray's for her favorite food - french fries - before driving dad around on the speedway.

She looked like she was drooping at this point so we tried to get her to take a nap, but she just wasn't tired enough. So we met up with Ariel, saved the galaxy from Zurg, and took a trip on the people mover instead.

And then it was time for the main event - Aria's Birthday dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table. Chris and I were so excited that I snagged us a reservation at the last minute. We were probably more excited than Aria. Of course by the time our reservation was up she was ready for that nap she skipped. Grumpy overtired toddler party of one.

She was a bundle of worms for the meal. She didn't really want to sit or listen or stop trying to kill mom and dad plus everything on the table with her magic wand. So it was not the most relaxing meal we've ever shared, BUT she did love the Princesses. She got excited when each one was announced and went into shy mode as soon as one came to the table. That was more than worth it for us. And, we weren't expecting the food to be so delicious so that was a bonus.

By the time Jasmine made it to our table she was losing a bit of her shyness. She even spoke to her and told her that we had dogs, but couldn't remember their names...so it's still a work in progress.

And, at the end of the meal she got a birthday cupcake!

The reservation I was able to get was an early one, so it was just starting to fade into evening when we left. The lit up windows are the restaurant. I had no idea myself, the meal was a first for everybody!

We weren't going to stay much later so Aria got one last ride on the Carrousel.

 And, I got just one more #coffeewithcharacter before our trip came to an end.

The castle lit up as we were leaving, so I wanted to get just one more picture. I mostly got some variation of this top picture before I finally talked Aria into smiling. Not looking, but smiling. Close enough!

I wanted to keep her awake until I could get her in a night diaper and pjs for the car ride, so dad got to carry her the whole way to the boats. I knew she would most likely pass out if we put her in the stroller. But, we made it back to Wilderness Lodge awake and Aria begged for just one more play with the lincoln logs. When we could finally drag her away that was the end of her Birthday trip. I'd say it was a pretty good Birthday.

And, here is the video for the final day...


It may have been the official end of Aria's Birthday trip, but we were actually right back to Disney two days later for a little Holidays Around the World at Epcot so keep an eye out for that either very soon or next year!

  5. Yep. Best 3rd birthday - ever!
    We've done a few meals at Ariel's Grotto and I'm always more excited to see the princesses than most of the kids. #sorrynotsorry
    I had no idea the character meal was IN the castle! SO COOL! DL's restaurant for the princess meal is not nearly as spectacular.

  9. I feel so excited for Aria's birthday and I wasn't even there! Eating in a castle? Amazing! And those princesses were all top notch. Very real looking. I love that you guys started the day with several varieties of sugar. It's like an Elf breakfast, aka exactly how bday breakfast should be. The only scary part was napless toddler + wand. Bad combo right there, but at least there were princesses to run interference. It's gonna be hard to top this when she turns 4, which is just entirely too crazy to think about.

  10. Your card arrived today, made me smile seeing Aria in her jammies by the big tree! I can only imagine what next years Birthday plans are! So funny she "forgot" the dogs names, sounds like something Kinsey would say. Or "you tell them Mommy" lol.
