For our third day in Disneyland, we got to have some super special treats. Andy and I started our day off really, really early… like 7:00 AM early, in order to get to a character breakfast at Storyteller’s Cafe.
The character breakfast there was really relaxed and one of the best for adults, because the atmosphere is calmer and the decor is beautiful. I am a huge fan of the Arts and Crafts style architecture and decor, so eating here is always a treat. We captured a lot of the great touches in our film. As for the characters, we got the chance to meet Chip and Dale, Pluto, and the bear from Brother Bear. Now there weren’t a ton of characters this time around, and I was super disappointed that Meeko wasn’t there, since he is one of my favorite woodland creatures. That said, our experience with Pluto was so memorable that it made up for such few characters.
No on this day, we were meeting up with some more family, which made our party a group of eight. One thing that really helped with such a large group was to schedule certain times and events that we would meet up for. On this day, Andy and I had a bit of extra time before meeting up with family, so we rode a bunch of rides before starting A Walk in Walt’s Footsteps Tour.
If you are a Disney fan and haven’t been on this tour, then it is a “must” for your next trip. The last time we did it, we were able to actually go into Walt Disney’s family suite. This time around they weren’t showing that. Instead, we got to see the Dream Suite! It worked out well for Andy and me because we had already seen the family suite, but I felt bad for my family who was looking forward to seeing it.
Even though they were a bit disappointed to not have seen the family suite, the dream suite is sooooooooo cool. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to film there, but we were able to take a family photo in the sitting room.
The rest of the day was pretty relaxed and we just waited to see the holiday parade before going to Café Orleans for Pommes Frites and the famous Monte Cristo sandwich! Yum!
