100 Things to Do in Disney #81 ~ Meet Rapunzel and Flynn Rider & a Tangled Inspired Recipe

Since we haven't met Rapunzel
yet, here's Hayley in Emily's "Ears"
Today I am sharing #81 in our series 100 Things to Do in DisneyThis is something Hayley is really looking forward to, and that is to meet Rapunzel and Flynn Rider in Walt Disney World.  It just happens to also be our inspiration for this month's Little Chef Disney Creations at Cooking with Mickey. 

Our family loves Disney's Tangled (yes, I still get teary-eyed at the lantern scene, even after several viewings!).  The characters are so endearing, how can we not love them?  Hayley has mentioned over and over how much she wants to meet Rapunzel and Flynn.  I am hoping we have that opportunity, but after reading an article by Wendy at Your Highway in the Sky, I am not so sure we will have that chance meeting with Flynn.  It seems that he may be, or has been, removed from the current meet and greet area with Rapunzel. (For more details, you can head over to Wendy's post A Loss of Character: Flynn Leaving Rapunzel Meet).  Hayley is already disappointed that she won't be able to meet Maximus, the horse, which took a lot of explaining on my part.  So my fingers are crossed we can somehow find a way for her to meet Flynn.  Have you been lucky enough to meet him somewhere in the parks? 

Disney's Tangled was the inspiration for this month's Little Chef Disney Creations, our column at Cooking with Mickey, where we share our Disney-inspired recipes to create wth kids.  Today we are sharing our recipe for

For a little more Tangled fun, do you think you can spot my little Hayley in Amanda Tinney's video Now I See the Light from Tangled Sung by Disney Fans for Disney Fans?  I'll give you a hint, be watching for pigtails and a princess sweatshirt at 2:29!

Oh no! I had no idea they too Flynn away. Last year the lines were too long to meet them so we said we would do it this year. :0(

Flynn will be meeting with Rapunzel at the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Parties and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Parties. We're going to at least the Halloween party this year and have yet to meet either Rapunzel or Flynn so we're very excited. My daughter will be dressed as Rapunzel. :)

Meeting the two of them is on my list too. Luckily we are going to MNSSHP. I hope you are able to find Flynn too!

I will have one disappointed little girl if we don't meet Flynn, though she has a long list of characters she wants to see, so hopefully, if we miss him, we'll find some others to take her mind off it! :-)

The lines were entirely too long to meet them while we were there. Hope you get the chance to get the both of them!
