Happy Birthday to The Princess

It was the perfect storm. School was ending on the day before The Princesses 15th birthday. Sweet 15 and never … (Dad hopes.) So sweet Princess, what do you want for your birthday? To go to Disney World and eat at L’Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante. Sometimes kids make a Dad proud.

So off Dad went. Planning a Christmastime trip to Disney World. Timing was perfect. We were going to arrive the day of the last Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and then the next day we could celebrate the birthday in EPCOT. Perfect.

Dad got into planning mode. I called Disney Dining and got a dinner reservation at L’Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante for the perfect time. All was right with the world. Everything fell into place. Flights, hotels (Caribbean Beach Resort), meals, MVMCP it was all perfect, until we arrived … (See what can happen to even the best laid plans.)

Finally time came, we presented ourselves at the podium of the restaurant. We went inside and took the table. (We had this planned in advance.) Mrs. Mom took The Princess to the restroom. I called the waiter over and told them it was the Princesses birthday. We don’t usually like to do this, but I was doing research to see what happened. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.)

In a few minutes, after the ladies returned, the musicians strolled over and started singing to The Princess. She blushed (it was so perfect). They sang about 3 songs then sang Happy Birthday. The Princess was totally embarrassed.

When the meal ended the waiter brought out a special cake just for The Princess. She didn’t share.

By the way the Alfredo at L’Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante was outstanding.

I miss that place.

  1. I am pretty sure I did share. It was chocolate cake and you know that is not my favorite! But it was still pretty cool.
