The last full day of our vacation is today and as always I needed a surprise for Danielle but what and how could I organize it?
Yesterday I insisted that we had breakfast in our hotel and I went to the reception to thank them for the good advice on he trip to downtown LA. Danielle believed this so I thought nothing can go wrong from here. I asked the lady at the reception to call the Disneyland Dining reservations and asked for a character breakfast at Goofy’s Kitchen in the Disneyland hotel. But it took so long to get through the waiting line that before she had an operator on the phone Danielle already came to see what took so long. So the surprise was a little bit away but she was still happy with it.
Off course this meant getting out of bed early today, at 7:00 sharp our alarm clock wakes Danielle and she woke me 30 minutes later. At 7:50 we are in the car on our way to the happiest place on earth.
We parked at the Disneyland Hotel parking and at 8:15 we were in line for a photo with Goofy, the first photo of today. We get the photo package and the digital copy for free with our PhotoPass+. The breakfast buffet is really good and it’s also not so crowded. The food is also themed to a goofy style with for example a peanut butter jelly pizza, upside down cakes and more. And besides food there were also characters we made photos together with Chip, Dale, Pluto, Aladdin and the Fairy Godmother.
The first photos we made were at Pixie Hollow with Tink in her winter clothing and from there we went for some Disney princesses at the royal walk in Fantasyland.
From there we walked to Rapunzel at the Tangled photo location were we waited for about 45 minutes for a photo. From there we walked through Frontierland where we found the fabulous five in the Halloween outfit. Too bad that there was no photopass photographers on this spot.
From there we walked over central plaza to take some additional photos with with the enormous castle in the background. And than it was time for our Space Mountain Fastpass, the onride photo is also included in our photopass+ and that was the last photo in Disneyland.
It was about 15:00 when we hopped to Disney’s California Adventure. First thing to do was getting photos made on our way to the Tower of Terror. We first walked in the standby entrance but after looking in the Mobile Magic app we decided to grab a fastpass instead since the return time was about the same and so we could make some other photos in the meantime. After we made some photos we grabbed a coffee at the Starbucks in the park and then it started to rain. The first rain of our vacation on the last full day.
So we walked through the rain to see the Aladdin Musical, the genie was this time even better he had some great one-liners and jokes. After the show our fastpass time slot for the Tower of Terror was passed but we could still get into the fastpass line. We loaded the photo on our photopass and we walked through the park to have a last look on Cars Land and checkout the wait time at the California Screamin’, the wait was only 15 minutes so we decided to ride this coaster once again. The last ride of this vacation.
We left the park after a couple more photos for our photopass+ and went to the Irvine Spectrum mall about 20 minutes south on the I5. It’s a nice looking mall but there was not much going on, probably because it was a thursday evening. We got our diner at Dave & Busters and afterwards we drove back to our hotel for the last night on the west coast.
