Pirates and Pals

On Saturday evening, we met tons of Disney characters at two "meet and greet" events. First, we went to dinner at Chef Mickey's where....

Chef Minnie Mouse,Chef Donald Duck,Chef Pluto,Chef Goofy, andChef Mickey
...stopped by our table to say hello and wish Grace a happy birthday. It was crazy, high energy, chaotic fun for all of us!

Then, we donned our pirate bandannas and eye patches to meet Captain Hook and Mr. Smead before getting on a boat and heading into the Seven Seas Lagoon.
Peeking to see if the pirates were ready to come out.
From the boat we watched the electric water parade and the fireworks show over Cinderella's castle at Magic Kingdom. I loved how the castle changed color based on the story and music. Grace said she didn't like it when the witch came and tried to spoil everyone's wishes.The pirate, Patch, who was our host for the evening was hysterical! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. And, then, when we got off the boat at 10:30 Peter Pan was waiting for us on the dock! What a surprise!

Finally, some Disney photos, lol. Aunt Phyl was waiting for them. Looking at them made me feel that I was there, too. It looks like you had a grand old time, and got to meet everyone....how wonderful.
