One of things that I enjoyed about this trip was being up and ready to go before the parks open….stinking jet lag. But this allowed us to get a head start on the crowds and get a lot of things done before they arrived. Day 3 was no different. Once we got our daughter up and moving, we headed into Disneyland Park for the roller coasters that we missed on our initial visit.
There was a lot of speculation has to where my family and I ate lunch during the afternoon. My daughter and I finished our ride on Space Mountain and met my wife at……….
Our family had one of the best, if not the best, counter service meals at either Walt Disney World or Disneyland. My daughter had a giant plate of pasta (no sauce or butter) for her meal. My wife got the pot roast which again was a big portion of pot roast. For me, the menu came down to one item….the fried chicken.
The chicken was juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. There were three pieces (a breast, a thigh, and a leg). The mashed potatoes were great as well and there was just enough gravy to cover the potatoes but not spill out on the rest of the plate. We were too full from our entrees so we passed on dessert.
For those who have found the trip report, you can catch up with Day 1 Part 1 so you can get up to speed with the upcoming post. It was a busy morning and afternoon. It was also becoming a long day since we were at 4:30 am Eastern time and it was now rapidly approaching 6 pm Pacific time. Could we stay awake until our 6:50 pm dinner reservation at Blue Bayou Restaurant.
