We started our day early. Early, as in as-soon-as-it-opened early. We were able to go on rides that my daughter wasn't able to ride on the trip we made last December. We were also able to get on rides that we had already taken her to. Unfortunately, some of the rides she liked before scared her now. So she didn't enjoy much of the rides. But she did enjoy meeting more Disney characters on this trip.
We made it a point this time to visit Critter country and see Winnie the Pooh. We were lucky enough to see Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore. After the photo-ops, we ventured to the sweets shop there and bought some goodies.
After going to a few more rides, we headed back to the hotel to give my daughter a nap and re-energize. We then headed to California Adventure for a lunch date with Ariel and the other Princesses at Ariel's grotto. It had been a while since hubby and I had lunch here.
After meeting with Ariel as we entered the dining area, we were given an appetizer tower, consisting of fruits, cured meats, cheeses, salad, and bread.
For my main course, I had the redfish
My daughter had her usual Macaroni & Cheese
And finally, we were served with an array of desserts on a platter
The main course and appetizers served were "okay." Nothing to write home about. The desserts are always delicious. But I guess you pay for the ambience and experience of meeting with the princesses.
This time, we were able to meet Jasmine and Alladin during our breakfast. I think we'll be making this a tradition every year. I hope so. Because its always fun to visit the Happiest Place on Earth and to have breakfast with some of the Disney characters.
