I was surprised how narrow the castle is. I did get a few shots of the beautiful mosaics depicting the story of Cinderella that grace the inside walls. The following are details of larger pieces.
The photo above is my submission for "Art Happens In the Moment" challenge for December. The challenge word is "Triumphant". Who do you think felt most like rejoicing? Cinderella or the Prince? The reason I feel this photo qualifies for "in-the-moment" is I was lucky to get any photos at all of these mosaics... The crowds at Disney can be like "waves" and we were pushed along and swept through this castle "tunnel". I had to raise my arms high and snap away. That is why a few are blurry.
We spent our day keeping a close eye on the kids and enjoying their excitement. We met many characters along our way.

The Magic of the Kingdom lasted until Midnight. We thought that was fitting and my husband and I collapsed that night knowing we would never have to do it again. We were blessed with wonderful weather and kids that held up the entire day without getting cranky. I can't say the same for myself, but there really is no need to elaborate on that.
