Before they both go to bed Alex looks at the map and sees the Charming Kingdom is close by. Next, she looks at the list of ingredients and Conner points out that glass that housed a lonely soul up 'til midnight's final toll would be Cinderella's slipper. That night Alex and Conner decide Charming Castle is their next stop. Since, Cinderella was having a ball Alex and Conner were able to look inside. They looked in the museum and found the slipper in a locked case. Cinderella finds them inside and unlocks the case. She gives them the slipper and tells them to be careful with the glass. Alex and Conner know are heading for Fairy Kingdom. On their way they get lost in the forest and arrive at a brick wall. Alex looks at the map and sees that they are at the border of The Red Riding Hood Kingdom. They were looking for the entrance while looking at the list of ingredients. Alex realizes that the bark of a basket that helped in fright while running from bark with bite is a piece of bark from Little Red Riding Hood's basket. At midnight Alex and Conner sneak into the castle into the basket room with a candle. The baskets caught on fire and Conner managed to get a basket and escape with Alex. They left the Red Riding Hood Kingdom heading for Fairy Kingdom. Alex and Conner got kidnapped by a goblin and are taken to the cells of the Troll and Goblin Territory. While in their cell Alex is reading the list that she hid in her shirt. That night Queen Trollbella came to the cells and Alex sees she is wearing a stony crown. That is on the list! Trollbella is calling Conner, Butter boy and is trying to kiss him. Alex tricks her into letting them out and she stole her crown and left the Troll and Goblin Territory rapidly. They have now arrived in the Fairy Kingdom. When they walk around they see a fairy crying. Alex goes over to comfort her, but Conner knows that a teardrop of a maiden fairy feeling neither magical nor merry is a teardrop from the fairy. Conner makes the fairy cry into a bottle and after that Alex makes her feel happy with a hug and has her watching a dancing unicorn. Since, they were already going to Sleeping Kingdom they stopped to sleep for the night at Mermaid Bay. Alex brought her Little Mermaid book with her. She read the ending when the Little Mermaid was killed for loving a human. She looked at the list and an idea popped into her head. A saber from the deepest sea meant for a groom's mortality was the sword that killed the Little Mermaid. The sun hasn't gone down yet so they go to the ocean, but they realize they can't swim. A sea turtle comes and takes Alex into the ocean while she is in a bubble. They take her to the bottom of the ocean and to the Little Mermaid sea foam. The sea foam tells Alex that the saber is in a rock in the evil sea witch's layer. Alex and the sea turtle go there. They quickly try and take the saber, but the evil sea witch sends electric eels toward them. Alex jumps and grabs the sword. She swims away with the sea turtle and returns to the beach with her brother. Afterwards, Alex and Conner go to the Sleeping Kingdom. They see that everything is dry and everyone wants to go inside and sleep. As they are walking Alex notices that on the list there is a needle that pierced the lovely skin of a princess found within would be the needle from the spindle that made Sleeping Beauty fall asleep. Sleeping Beauty was having a ball that night and they snuck into the room with all the spindles. Before the guards came Alex picked up one of the needles and took it with her just in case. When Alex looked at the needle it had a stain of blood, so Alex knew it was the right needle. They were heading toward the Northern Kingdom. Alex and Conner ran into the seven dwarves on their way to the Northern Kingdom's castle. The dwarves told them that the queen was Snow White. Alex knew that glittering jewels whose value increased after preserving the false deceased was a jewel from Snow White's coffin.
