Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to KISS groupie

I love the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Experience and every Disneyland Princess must try it at least once in a girl’s life.

Sleeping Beauties: The hotel

We stayed at the Camelot Inn and Suites for all the nights of our vacation. We were looking for a hotel that was within walking distance of the park so we could return to take naps. The importance of the naps to young people is paramount. Other places we’ve stayed see here and here. The…
