the enchanted rose [red rose taverne - Disneyland]

As I mentioned before, we were lucky enough to see the unveiling of the Red Rose Taverne at Disneyland last week.  The second day we visited, I caught a glimpse of the new souvenir cup selling for a limited time in celebration of the new live action Beauty and the Beast movie.  However, they were literally unboxing the cups as I had already ordered, so I figured, no big deal, I don't really need another cup.  About an hour after leaving the park, we started getting text messages asking us to pick up one of the enchanted rose cups, and then we realized - these cups were a thing, like a crazy disney fanatic thing.
Due to some scheduling conflicts, Everly and I found ourselves with nothing to do on the last day of vacation, so what better thing to do that to go to Disneyland for another day, and try to snag one of the infamous cups.  And so we did.  It was not easy, let me tell you.  First off, people, please hear me out, if you have never been to Disneyland, DO NOT GO on a Saturday.  It was craziness - like out of control busy, and I've been to the parks when they were at max capacity!  I decided that we would pick up a fastpass for star tours and then line up at the Red Rose Taverne before it opened.  Turns out, everyone else had the same idea.  Thankfully, somehow my daughter was just in a magical space, and even though we had literally done nothing in the park but get a fastpass for a later time, she had no problem just hanging out in a line of crazy disneyland fans, for over an hour and a half!  We never wait in line for a ride that long - let alone a restaurant to buy a cup - but we did.  It was a fun fan experience to talk with other disney fanatics - and the sun was shining, and we were lined up with plenty of seating options, so we were good.

So, here are a few photos of my little date with my daughter in Disneyland this past Saturday as we got ourselves a few of these gorgeous little souvenir cups! I'm pretty sure this is one of those moments I will hold on to for some time.
