Our Vacation - Day 3
We started out our morning very early so we could have breakfast with Lilo & Stitch! The Paradise Pier Hotel had a fantastic selection of food (including Mickey Mouse Waffles & Pancakes), but my favorite was the MTO-Omelettes. Yummy. The best part of the breakfast is seeing some of your favorite Disney characters up close and personal with lots of opportunities for photos and game playing.
Minnie Mouse! She's a flirt... just ask King Isepik.
Daisy Duck! We had to wait a long time to see her. I didn't know she was so popular.
After breakfast we headed over to California Adventure, a relatively new Disney theme park which none of us had been to before. The first ride we headed for was Soarin' Over California because it had received rave reviews from our family and friends. And it was awesome. I think I could've ridden that ride all day - so fun!
We visited the following attractions:
Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (The Princess, The King & I)
Disney's Aladdin - A Musical Spectacular
Disney Animation - Turtle Talk With Crush (The Princess, The Dragon & I)
Disney Animation - Animation Academy
Disney Animation - Character Close-Up
Disney Animation - Sorcerer's Workshop
Mulholland Madness (The Princess & I)
King Triton's Carousel
S.S. Rustworthy (The Dragon & The King)
Soarin' Over California
Grizzly River Run (The King, The Queen & The Princess)
Redwood Creek Challenge Trail
Mission Tortilla Factory (Tortilla by Mission Foods - yummy!)
The Bakery Tour (Sourdough Bread by Boudin Bakery - more yummy!)
I traded cameras with a family who needed their picture taken while The Princess and King Isepik were on the Grizzly River Run. This is the picture they took of The Dragon & I.
The Purple Dragon joined a Hillbilly Band and had a great time playing some jingle bells and dancing while waiting for the river runners to return. The Princess wanted to be in the picture with The Dragon's Hillbilly friend.
The girls really loved the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail. I have to admit, it WAS fun.
The girls even got to participate in a Rubber Ducky Race! Everyone got stickers for participating.
Aladdin was totally awesome. Great show! And yep, the carpet really did fly!

A blue dolphin for the Purple Dragon because blue is close to purple, after all!
Eliot (Pete's Dragon)was in the Electrical Parade.
