Buffet area of the Minnie and Friends breakfast, more food along the wall

Plaza Inn Disneyland Interior

Comparable to Crystal Palace at WDW MK hub, but many more characters. Pooh, Chip, Geppeto, Captain Hook, Alice in Wonderland and Mad Hatter, White Rabbit, Minnie Mouse, Max of Goof Troop… All while we were there. Overlook Castle and Tomorrowland rides. Elegant atmosphere. The characters are funny. Hook played keep away with a child’s balloon. He’s a bad guy, and child was OK with this…. We in that part of restaurant chanted to Hook “Pop it! Pop it! Pop it!” using his hook to Hook. He played along to drag out suspense, then popped it! Everyone laughed. Hook replaced the balloon, but not before another game of keep away. Omelets, eggs, bacon, oatmeal, pastries, fruit, Mickey waffles, etc. “the usual stuff”, plus you can have your birthday outside in a special area. Apparently all children get a balloon, everyone gets a souvenir pin.

Alice, Mad Hatter, Plaza Inn Minnie Breakfast

This is not our family, but you get idea of character interaction and ambience. Minnie and Friends Character Breakfast. Forgot a character, and a big one, in my prior posting: Fairy Godmother! All those characters were present! Many more than comparable character breakfasts at WDW. Honestly, I was favorably shocked.

We met up with E-friends. Large group: 17! Got Fast Passes for Space Mountain, and just before boarding the whole ride stopped. Bright lights went on. Guests inside were removed and a couple of cars returned to loading area empty. Theme park equivalent of “rebooting” going on to reset electronics. Lights dim, cars start reloading and literally everyone in lines cheer and applaud. Space Mountain at DL much faster and intense than MK at WDW, darker, seems like more stars, yet another new musical soundtrack… It sounded to me like the soundtrack could be similar to a ’60s James Bond film in style and composition and musical arrangement. Hard to describe, it would be an action sequence with orchestra and purcussion if it were in a James Bond movie. Fabulous ride, and like James Bond you come out shaken, not stirred.

Finding Nemo is Disneyland’s newest attraction, FastPasses for this go in a twinkling of an eye in the morning and long stand by lines in the day. Attraction uses submarines, beloved fixture of Disney parks, so crowds still bee-line to this. We haven’t gotten to that attraction yet.

There is a promotion going on for “two fer” tickets, a discount if you buy both DL and. California Adventure tickets. Overheard someone say lines at DCA today are as long and crowded as at Disneyland. Another reason is all of Orange County schools are on vacation this week, and it is also Spring Break at other parts around the country. Los Angeles county had off the previous week.

Hoping we can keep seeing attractions! Easter Sunday it was easy, now it’s noticably heavier crowds. Eeeep!

Still having fun, though. We found a wall outlet at Innoventions, explained to a Cast Member we were being god parents to our iPhones by feeding them lunch (a battery recharge) and she laughed.

Passed by a McDonald’s French Fry location, too, and marvelled that people would line up for that. Ironically in Fowler’s Harbor not from from the Hungry Bear Restaurant. We saw another location selling McDonald’s French Fries along Big Thunder Trail, from a wagon similar to ones used in a wagon train during the days of the Old West.

Update from Rich: It was fun and good, but we enjoyed Goofy’s Kitchen more. The characters there spent more time with us and the food was better with more of a selection of different things to choose from as well.
