After the appetizer part and the main entree comes Madison falls asleep eating her pasta, she is in her sleeping beauty costume. So she is asleep in the high chair with her head on the table. everyone said oh look at sleeping beauty.. thank fully she saw all the princesses come to the table before we ate. she was in heaven.

We had to leave to go eat and then head to Magic Kingdom for the after hours Pirate and Princess Party. We ate at Red Lobster. We got there just as the Parade was coming around the front entrance we had a great spot for the parade. It was the best parade I have ever seen at Disney, Madison was scared with the pirates and villains came around. But oh so happy when the princesses and peter pan came around. We rode several rides like Dumbo, small world, peter pan. They loved them all! We got to the hotel very late that night.
