|We found an adorable Disney store!|
We walked from the hotel to Kensington Palace through Hyde Park, which was lovely. Kensington Palace has been home to many important members of the British Royal Family from Queen Victoria to Princess Diana. Today, William and Kate and baby George live in one wing of the Palace.

We toured part of the Palace (King George II's rooms, Queen Anne's rooms, and the fashion exhibit) before heading to Afternoon Tea in the Orangery. Stefanie even found a tea that she liked: mixed berry!
Before we knew it, it was time to head off to the West End! Because the Queen's Theatre is a little ways away from the Prince Edward and the Palace Theatres where we'd been going, we got off at a different tube stop and quickly found ourselves in the middle of...Chinatown? The streets were lined with Asian restaurants of all types.
After getting our tickets from the Box Office (and seeing the Enjolras, Michael Colburne heading to the theatre!), we picked a little dumpling place. Nicole had pork bao and Stefanie had tofu and broccoli.
Stage door was super incredible as well. We were both impressed by how long Carrie stayed talking to fans! She even agreed to film a little bit of our vlog with us. We missed David Thaxton (who was one of the best Javerts ever), which was sad, but got selfies with the Valjean, Enjolras, and Marius!
