The breakfast at Dream Castle wasn’t great. I enjoyed the one at Hauteville Opera more. Over here, even the croissants weren’t nice. The scrambled eggs were much too watery and hubby said they looked like puke. Scrambled eggs on the first day were much too salty. Second day was fine. Not much consistency there. Also on the 3rd day, the orange juice was watered down a lot.
We made an early start to the Park, catching the shuttle bus from our hotel at 9.20am and got there in 10mins. We were surprised that the Park was actually open and people were already entering it. There were no regrets at all purchasing our tickets beforehand at the hotel’s reception as it definitely saved us time queuing up to buy them. We joined the first queue we saw which was for the railway that took us round the Park. This ride started at 10am and we got off at Fantasyland to catch the princesses at the Meet and Greet sessions. We picked up an autograph book on the way, together with a pen for the characters we met to sign in it. We spied Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) & Prince Philip having a performance behind Belle’s castle. It wasn’t very well-organised, no proper queue for the kids to get into, to get to meet and take photos with the characters. Everyone was just pushing their way through. Pity those kids who are not used to rushing and pushing, just like mine. And also a couple others. The problem was that all the other parents were also in there, so hubby had to make his way in or she’d not have had an autograph.
We went round the front of the castle and found Snow White on a stage with a long queue below. We joined that one while Granny joined the one for Pooh. We wasted over an hour on those queues, but at least managed to get some nice photos taken.
The rides we managed to go on, and I do recommend, were Peter Pan’s Flight; The twirling teacups (not sure of the name); Dumbo, flying elephant; It’s a small world.
We proceeded to lunch afterwards at a pizzeria. We had Mickey-shaped pizza, pasta, etc. Fastfood is costly here in Europe and at Disney, it’s worse. Not worth what we paid for.
After lunch, hubby, fil, and princess went to ride on the Pirates of the Caribbean. We also did Buzz Lightyear, which was my most favourite ride. I’ve done the Big Thunder Mountain twice, once in Eurodisney and the 2nd time in Disneyland , LA, so I skipped this time. Hubby, fil, and princess went on it, with me assuring them it was fine. When they came out, it was all complains; fil feeling sick and princess saying it was really scary. I remembered it to be thrilling and my dad had no problems with that ride, so didn’t expect fil to feel sick in the tummy. Hahaha! Gotcha y’all!
End of Disneyland day 1.
