Julia:

Thanks for the story, great photos and video on behalf of all of us who could not be there in person.

Joan:

Thank you for these fantastic photos! I felt like I was there.

I'd give my high teeth for a photo with all the princesses. My 10 year-old love horses and was so excited to see Merida on her horse! What a fun celebration!

Lilu:

Oh Disney, of course you need more princesses. Fairies too. Add like 30 more fairies.

Yurgh.

Hi,
Just in case you don't watch the Ellen DeGenerous Show the two little girls pictured with the lovely Princess's are Sofia Grace and Rosie from the UK. Ellen has them on the show often and she has sent them to DL and last week she told them they were going to WDW.
They are so sweet.
