While I still have a special place in my heart for Ariel, and I want to be Belle one day, I think Tiana is my favorite "real life" princess! She and Prince Naveen were fabulous at the meet and greet! They spent so much time with each person and made everyone feel so "at home" I don't even think people mined the long waits!
We met this couple in September 2011 at the Magic Kingdom behind Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square- under a gazebo. We waited for about 20 minutes before they even arrived, then waited another 30 to actually get to them. Cman was asleep in the stroller and since it was our last day we had checked off everything on our "to do" lists. Right as we approached Naveen and Tiana, Cman woke up and he was NOT a happy camper. He was actually pretty mad and wanted nothing to do with the prince and princess. In fact he didn't even want me to have anything to do with them. Both Naveen adn Tiana approached him to try to get him to stop
crying screaming, but nothing worked. As this picture was being taken and the autographs were being signed, Cman was fussing and causing a scene.
The best part... as we were leaving, Naveen pulled me aside and told me if he stopped crying later and wanted to come back to meet them we could come in the exit and wouldn't have to wait in line! :) It was the sweetest thing- especially in his N'awlins accent! If it hadn't been the last thing we did on the last day of our trip, I totally would have gone back so Cman could "meet" them!
