Day 3: swimming like a fish

The three hour time change has worked in our favour. Hubby's conference starts at 8 and the parks open at 7 for hotel guests. So, as soon as he heads off to the conference centre, the kid and I go to the parks.

On Tuesday we got to Disneyland around 7:20 or so. We headed through Sleeping Beauty's miniature castle and promptly rode
  • Peter Pan's Flight
  • Snow White's Scary Adventures
  • Pinocchio's Daring Journey
  • Dumbo the Flying Elephant
  • Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
  • Mad Tea Party
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Storybook Land Canal Boats
We then lined up for 30 minutes so that the kid could met the newest Princess, Merida from Brave. She even got to practice her archery skills. Yup, hit the target dead centre.

We then rode It's a Small World before visiting Mickey's Toontown. In Toontown we rode both rides: Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin and Gadget's Go Coaster. The kid decided that adults must prefer the coaster to the kids because she bumped her head. I think she is crazy.

We got french toast from the Tomorrowland Terrace and snagged Fast Passes for Space Mountain. We then went back to the hotel because the kid had a tummy ache. It was 10:30 am.

We rested until noon and then went out to the pool. The kid didn't eat any of the tuna salad sandwich she insisted on ordering. But she did play in the pool with some kids for four hours.

The kid and I then spent a few hours watching the Disney Channel. Her dad came back from the conference to get ready for the banquet. We walked him back to the conference centre for the banquet, talked to his coworkers and headed back to Disneyland.

Our fast passes worked on Space Mountain so we went on it. And then Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. Then, we decided to go get food from Downtown Disney (we may have popped in some shops along the way). The kid decided she "needed" kettle corn. So we got some of that. We also picked up chips, guacamole, salsa and nacho cheese from the quick service place next to the restaurant we had eaten at the day before. The kid thought that was the best food option. We sat on the hotel room floor, watching Disney shows and eating our dinner until the husband came back around 8:30.
