Wordless Wednesday — Meeting Winnie the Pooh

by Janice

Meeting Winnie the Pooh - Olivia

Olivia meeting Winnie the Pooh

Olivia meets Winnie the Pooh at Walt Disney World.

Thanks to Walt Disney World for including 5 Minutes for Mom on the media trip forThe Disney Dream. Disney provided park passes and covered my expenses, (I covered my family’s,) but my opinions – and my love for Disney – is all my own!

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL)

Here is a fun thumbnail linky…

But if you prefer the old style, you can use this linky:

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Aww, what a tender moment that was for her! She almost looks bashful in the pic and I bet she felt like a princess in her beautiful dress! :)

I had the sentence, “Bashfully, Olivia meets Winnie the Pooh.” But then I took out bashfully, lol. But maybe I should have kept it in. :)

How adorable! That smile is wonderful!


4 Natalie February 9, 2011 at 12:25 am

What a great capture, a definite keeper picture for sure.


5 Emily faliLV February 9, 2011 at 12:25 am

I love this – she is so over the moon!!


6 Mrs. Marine February 9, 2011 at 12:26 am

Awww, how cute!!!


7 MamaWhimsy February 9, 2011 at 12:28 am

Wow, he looks bigger in real life ;o). Such a sweet moment.


8 Michelle February 9, 2011 at 12:28 am

I am sure that is one experience your family will never forget!


9 mindy February 9, 2011 at 12:29 am

Aww. This is sweet! Love her princess dress!


10 Larry H. February 9, 2011 at 12:30 am

What a great meeting and an exciting day for her!


11 Tammi February 9, 2011 at 12:31 am

Awe – that is sooo sweet!
I really hope we can take the kids to Disney soon, I so want to see my girls’ eyes sparkle to see such characters.
…Maybe it’s because we have been stuck in this house all winter and I’m getting so sick of taking pics of my kids indoors. It’s getting so old and boring!
I think of this because the colors are so vivid and bright – so much life!

Have a great week, Janice!



12 Janice February 9, 2011 at 12:35 am

I know! I haven’t taken any pics of my kids since we got back!! Just grey rainy days. Hence the last four weeks have been Disney pics! LOL I am wishing we were still there!


13 Tammi February 9, 2011 at 12:37 am

Great idea though – I need to dig out the summer pics. Maybe posting those instead will brighten things.
I have NOT ONE photo of my kids outdoors since October…ha!


14 Genny February 9, 2011 at 12:32 am

I have a soft spot for Winnie the Pooh in my heart… my daughter’s nursery was decorated in Pooh decor… :)


15 Janice February 9, 2011 at 12:36 am

ME too! We have Winnie and his friends playing hockey in a mural on Olivia’s wall. (It was Jackson’s room, and I just can’t bear to paint over Winnie! My friend did such a fabulous job with the mural! So even though I want princess theme or ballet theme for Liv, Winnie in his Habs jersey is still there!)


16 Mrs. Cox February 9, 2011 at 12:35 am

Lucky! Slightly envious of her :) How fun!

LOVE IT!! I’m so glad you guys got to do that trip- what a wonderful way to spend time with your family eh? :)


19 kristin February 9, 2011 at 12:52 am

It’s funny because I saw my kiddos go from loving Winnie the Pooh to now just being like whatevs. Her age is so perfect, so magical. What a wonderful day that must have been, and you captured it beautifully!


20 Anne February 9, 2011 at 12:57 am

Awww, so sweet. How I would have loved to have met Winnie the Pooh at her age, but my parents weren’t the Disney types! My girls love going to Ariel’s Grotto at Disneyland and meeting all the princesses.


21 JamericanSpice February 9, 2011 at 1:06 am

That is one for the memory books! So cool!

Love the shot.

Happy WW


22 Dagmar's momsense February 9, 2011 at 2:09 am

L isn’t really familiar with Disneyland or Mickey, I wonder how he would react to it. Would love to go with him one day.



23 Verena February 9, 2011 at 4:09 am

Aww, that is so cute! My daughters would just love to meet (such a big) Winnie Pooh!
Thanks for sharing.


24 Lisa February 9, 2011 at 4:50 am

25 Run DMT February 9, 2011 at 5:34 am

Awwwww, Pooh is such a nice bear. I can see why she’s so happy!


27 Gina February 9, 2011 at 6:12 am

What a sweet moment!


28 Beth February 9, 2011 at 7:20 am

Love Winnie the Pooh and friends. In March we have reservations at the Crystal Palace for breakfast before the park opens. Can not wait to see how the kids like it. We celebrated my little guy’s 2nd birthday there 2 years ago and it was a but overwhelming for him.


29 Susie's Homemade February 9, 2011 at 7:31 am

So sweet!


30 Stacy Uncorked February 9, 2011 at 7:35 am

34 Amys blah, blah, blogging February 9, 2011 at 8:33 am

My 5 year old had the best time meeting the characters last year! Looks like she did too!


35 Crissy February 9, 2011 at 8:44 am

OK, my 18-month-old would go nuts for an experience like this! He loves Pooh! :)


36 @PamelaMKramer - A Renaissance Woman February 9, 2011 at 8:45 am

She’s amazing! She’s looks so happy in to meet Pooh.


37 shelly February 9, 2011 at 8:45 am

39 Dominique February 9, 2011 at 8:47 am

Aww…that must have been such a unforgettable moment for her.
Happy WW


40 Amy February 9, 2011 at 8:53 am

Seriously adorable stuff right there. There’s nothing cuter than playing dress up and meeting all your favorite, imaginary friends. :)


41 KLZ February 9, 2011 at 9:15 am

I can’t wait to take our little guy to meet some of his favorite.


42 Lolli February 9, 2011 at 9:23 am

Ahh! What a happy moment!


43 Winelady Cooks February 9, 2011 at 9:26 am

It’s so great to see how much the children love the larger than life characters.

Happy wordless wednesday and thank you for hosting.


44 PeaceLoveTerri February 9, 2011 at 9:45 am

Happy, Happy Wednesday!!


45 B February 9, 2011 at 9:57 am

There is nothing better than a child’s first trip to Disney World and meeting the characters up close and personal. I’ll never forget when my children layed eyes on the castle for the first time.


46 Andrea February 9, 2011 at 10:20 am

What an adorable picture! SO sweet! :-)


47 Jules from A Little Bite of Life February 9, 2011 at 10:42 am
48 Joanne February 9, 2011 at 10:46 am

How sweet, my little guy was Winnie the pooh for Halloween two years ago… He’s such a gentle character to love (Pooh that is :)


49 Cascia February 9, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Beautiful shot! My oldest used to love Winnie The Pooh.


50 Star Traci February 9, 2011 at 1:42 pm

So cute! Pooh meets royalty. Looks like a happy princess to me!


51 Jessica February 9, 2011 at 2:24 pm

What a great photo. I can’t wait to take our boys to Disney World!


52 Julie {Angry Julie Monday} February 9, 2011 at 2:27 pm

Oh look, my friend Janice is taunting me with Disney World pictures again…


53 Nancy February 9, 2011 at 4:27 pm

Awwww! Isn’t she ever cute and brave! Most kids are deathly afraid of those! Even if it is Pooh. Great candid shot. I love it!


54 Mikki February 9, 2011 at 5:18 pm

Awww. She is so adorable.


55 Naomi February 9, 2011 at 5:56 pm

Argh! So cute… makes me even more depressed that we got booted from Disney SM Moms this year. Sniffle, sniffle.


56 Kelli February 9, 2011 at 7:03 pm

Awww…so adorable!!! I love her Cinderella dress. Reminds me of the first time we took our kids to Disney, but my little girl would not go near Pooh. haha :)


57 Mimi February 13, 2011 at 12:12 am

Oh my goodness, it’s been so long since we’ve been there. It’s been 7yrs this year. I can hardly believe it. I loved eating with the Pooh characters. We had such a great time! She looks adorable in her outfit, too!
