Reservations for restaurants at Disneyland can be made 60 days before you arrive, and they are ESSENTIAL if you’re going to be there during the Christmas holidays.
On our first night, we went to the Grand Californian Hotel for drinks and then dinner in the Storyteller’s Café.
Kepler liked the gingerbread display.
Staying at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel meant that we were able to enter Disneyland at 7 a.m.
First ride: “Finding Nemo”: big hit!
Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters: I loved making the car spin!
Lunch in the Carnation Café: reserved, thank goodness.
We couldn't believe how crowded the park was. Bryan remarked, “Thank heavens for ‘fast passes’.”
Kepler didn’t want to get off the “Jungle Cruise” and Bryan enjoyed the “funniest, punniest guide”.
We were only disappointed to find The Haunted House was all changed.
It was such a big day that Kepler fell asleep right after dinner!
