Instead of throwing a birthday party for Sweet Pea, we decided for her to have a special experience instead. I had recently found out that you can eat with Disney characters at the new Aulani Disney resort. It is not just for hotel guests, it is for anyone who wants to go. You just have to make reservations in advance. And it not cheap. For three of us to eat (they didn’t charge for Bubby), it was 110 bucks with tip. I will say the breakfast is AWESOME. They had everything imaginable, even grits! The only thing I would change, is putting some salt into those grits. 😉
Luckily, they had openings 2 days after Sweet Pea’s birthday, my niece was going to be here, and Jason got off work.
It was a blast. Sweet Pea had no idea what we were doing for her birthday. All she knew is that she was going to have a special guest come (my sister’s family) and a special breakfast. She went crazy when she saw Mickey Mouse. As soon as she could, she ran up to him and gave him a big hug. She was so excited.
After taking pictures with Mickey we met up with Goofy.
Sweet Pea was too excited to eat, and wouldn’t eat until Minnie came up to our table. Finally she did and Sweet Pea freaked out and was so happy. It was worth every penny.
They sang Happy Birthday to her and the kids all got a special treat. And they had Auntie walking around, singing songs and playing games with the kids.
It took a while for Bubby to warm up, he was hungry and stupid me didn’t give him a snack before we left. Breakfast was late (11am) and he is used to eating as soon as he gets out of bed. I believe he had a good time, eventually. He liked to flirt with Minnie Mouse.
If you are in Hawaii and have children, you should definitely try to take them. They will LOVE it.
