We started the next morning early at California Adventure. This park has an Extra Magic Hour, just for resort guests unlike Disneyland’s Magic Morning, which is for anyone with a 3-day Park-Hopper.
We got to see the newly-created Buena Vista Street without a mob of people, and it was absolutely breathtaking.
We immediately went to Carsland. Craig and my sister, Jessica, went to Radiator Springs Racers. Anthony and I had breakfast at Flo’s V-8 Cafe. After we enjoyed Carsland with minimal crowds. While Jessica and I rode Radiator Springs, Craig brought Anthony to Bugsland.
Once we finished with those lands we went over to the Monster’s Inc. ride. This was so much fun. You ride through Monstropolis in a taxi car and experience the story of Monsters Inc. My son is a huge Monsters fan so we rode this two or three times. Then we met Sully!
After our morning we went over to the Paradise Pier Hotel for Mickey’s Surf’s Up Breakfast. The buffet was far superior than the Plaza Inn. There weren’t as many characters, but we had amazing characters here too.
Daisy and Minnie loved Anthony. They came up and sat right next to him in our booth. Daisy was full of hugs and Minnie helped Anthony eat his breakfast and drink his milk. Each one spent 5-10 minutes with us. We were one of the last customers in the restaurant which I think is what resulted in so much time spent with Anthony.
After our meal, we headed back to the Disneyland Hotel and everyone took a nap! After nap time, it was time for our date night!
Craig and I had dinner at Carthay Circle restaurant–which was outstanding. The bread, appetizers and entrees didn’t disappoint. Our waiter was outstanding he was full of tips and information and was a true Disney fan, which is always a treat.
After our dinner we headed over to Disneyland and had Dole Whips for dessert.
We then rode the monorail from Tomorrowland into Downtown Disney and walked the short way back to our hotel.
