Set up for the World Premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean
It was fun to see the Park being fixed up for the World Premiere of the new movie. I think the premiere will be tomorrow, Saturday.
Wouldn't it be fun to be there, watching a movie outside on such a huge screen? The park employees seemed excited , and were asking people if they would be there on Saturday to see the red carpet event.
Okay, back to a few of our "favorites" in Disneyland.
We like to eat dinner at The French Market. The food is delicious, too bad I didn't think to take a picture so you could see for yourself. They offer soups, Plantation Citrus Chicken, Roast Beef , both with "smashed " potatoes (yummy with a hint of cheese), and fresh carrots, broccoli and squash. It's in the New Orleans Square area, and about $14.99 for dinner.
Two of our favorite breakfast spots in the park are Tomorrowland Terrace, and River Belle Terrace. This time we chose Tomorrowland Terrace.
The French Toast Platter
Two of our favorite lunch spots are the Pacific Wharf Cafe in Disney's California Adventure, near the wharf area, and the Carnation Cafe on Main Street in Disneyland.
You can buy soup in crunchy french bread bowls. Clam Chowder, and a corn chowder. They also have salads, and sandwiches, and treats for your sweet tooth, of course.
This is the Turkey Sandwich.
This is the chicken salad with apples, dried cranberries, and walnuts.
We like the cheesy potato soup, it reminds me of a sour cream potato dish I make, and the turkey sandwich with a salad here.
On to one of our favorite little shops.
They will cut a silhouette for you, by hand, in a minute or less, for only $9.95. The darling frame is only another $9.95. So far, I have had silhouettes of 5 of our kids made, and one son's girlfriend, also. I only need our two married kids with their spouses, and our darling Granddaughter. They can even do it from a good profile photograph, if you have one.
This is a nice spot near Big Mountain Thunder Railroad ride, near the water, where you can sit and relax, while you eat one of our favorites - either a frozen banana, or a Dole pineapple whip.
I still like going on the Jungle cruise.
Having fun with my sweetheart. Our 30th Anniversary is coming up next month, and he's still my best friend. I'll do a bigger post sometime with more family favorites at Disneyland, but thought I'd start with a few favorites from our trip.
Outside the park, we like this little pizza place for a quick meal at the end of a long day.
You can buy pizza by the slice, it has a crispy crust, without being too thick.
I just thought I'd show the newly refurbished rooms at the Disneyland Hotel.
The headboard lights up and plays, " a dream is a wish your heart makes"
This is the Downtown Disney view, with the Matterhorn in the top middle of the picture. It looks better at night.
The artwork in the rooms are photos of Walt Disney, and Disneyland.
