We started our morning off at Tangaroa Terrace. I had read in another thread that their French toast is awesome, so I had to give it a try!
Sean had the breakfast wrap:
Both meals were SUPER yummy!!
Friday morning we had early entry to DCA, so we headed in there a little after 8am. The park was EMPTY (except Carsland, which I couldn’t ride the two rides we would be interested in anyway), so we took a couple opportunities to take photos.
My husband is a big Muppets fan, but it wasn’t running yet, so we took a photo in front since I have heard rumors it may be closing and we aren’t sure when we’ll be back.
Toy Story was a walk on, so we took a ride.
He out-scored me, and proclaimed that this ride was far more accurate than Astro Blasters. (Note – I know our scores are lame compared to some! We are definitely not regulars on these rides! Haha)
We then went to ride Little Mermaid, and I laughed when I was handed one of the red cards because we were literally the only people in line.
I took these with my point and shoot (No flash!) and I have no photography skills, so excuse the blur. I still think they’re fun despite the low quality.
After that, we rode Monsters, Inc. (Again, excuse the blur!)
Then headed over to Animation Academy to see if we could join a class. We missed the class, so we killed some time exploring the other areas. We took the character quiz:
This question always makes me laugh.
Sean got Scar:
When it was my turn, I took the most flattering picture I could (hey, I can’t ride anything with ride photos… I have to get my kicks somewhere!)
And ended up as the Evil Queen.
Sean tried his hand at a voice over
Then we took some time to look around the Off the Page store. We were in LOVE with some of the Star Wars art:
And then it was time to cross over to Disneyland to meet up with my friend and fellow Mice Chatter, Brandon!
We decided to grab lunch at Carnation Café. I wanted to try it out since I’ve only ever had breakfast there. To my delight, Oscar was making his rounds, so I asked him for a photo.
I ordered the turkey sandwich, which was honestly nothing special, but Sean ordered the day’s special, which was some kind of seafood pasta. He LOVED it!
I did have some of the “fresh lemonade”, which was tasty.
Our waitress took a group photo. Sean closed his eyes in both attempts… and the flash wasn’t even on. *sigh*
We will definitely be trying Carnation for lunch or dinner again, and next time I’ll be more adventurous on my meal decision.
After saying goodbye to Brandon, we headed back to the hotel to meet up with friends to get ready for Dapper Day!!
