I had been promising Taylor a trip to the American Girl Place for at least four years. When we heard that they were opening up a location in nearby California, we decided to make this promise a reality. So we packed up the van and we drove to Beverly, Hills, that is, swimming pools, movie stars. Well I did walk right by Della Reece from "Touched By An Angel". The American Girl Company has an ingenious marketing team. The American Girl Place is nothing short of Disneyland for young girls. In a few short hours, we attended a musical, complete with orchestra, had a magazine cover photo session, Elizabeth, the doll had her hair done in the doll salon, added another doll to Taylor's collection, Felicity, who is Elizabeth's best friend, and dreamed of more shopping for our return visit the next day. Upon returning, we experienced the exceptionally decorated "Cafe" where every doll has her own seat and dinnerware. We were so thrilled to see Taylor so happy, yet appreciative of this trip. I also have to mention , The Orlando, the exceptional hotel that we stayed in. When we asked how far they were from the American Girl Place, they offered us a $50 a night discount and said that they do a little something for the doll. At turn down, they placed an American Girl doll bed with a note for Taylor hoping that this would make her doll more comfortable. They also kept us comfortable with plush down comforters and cushy pillows. Remember this trip Taylor!
