Tuesday began much the same way as Monday. Kirsten and Katie woke up at 4:45 in the morning, despite having been out so late on Monday, and we headed to Disneyland and met Aunt Marilyn at 9 when the park opened. Today though, we headed to California Adventure.
Right when we got in, Jeremy got in line to get fast passes for the Radiator Springs Racers ride. The line is typically 3 hours long and the fast passes were all gone by 9:30 in the morning. I was so glad that we were able to get them. We headed straight to Cars Land. It looked like we were really in Radiator Springs.
The girls and me with Stanley
Welcome to Radiator Springs!
We were able to meet Mater at the Cozy Cone
We had to come back later in the day, but we finally made it on the Radiator Springs Racers.
The scenery was beautiful - right out of the movie
Katie's favorite ride was the Ariel's Under Sea Adventure. It was really fun watching her sing along and be so excited to see the scenery from the movie.
We even got to meet Duffy the Disney Bear (who I had never heard of before) but the girls loved him!
After meeting Donald, Kirsten wanted to go on the California Scream Rollercoaster. It goes upside down and I was really worried about her going on it. Well, she loved it and ended up going twice - thanks to the rider switch pass. I attempted to take Katie on the Carousel right next to, but she would have nothing to do with it. It is funny how different these girls are!
Now for the best time of the day, lunch with the Princesses! The girls got dressed up in their princess dresses. Kirsten wore Rapunzel's wedding dress, complete with the hair. Katie was Sleeping Beauty, or as she says "Sleepy Booty"
My Beautiful Princesses
In front of Ariel's Grotto Restaurant
Waiting patiently on the stairs for our turn.
We booked the earliest seating of the day and were the first people to check in. That meant that we were the first ones to head down the stairs and meet Ariel.
There was an amazing meal in the middle, but then of course this amazing desert tray.
The first Princess to come out and meet our girls was Jasmine.
Followed by Belle
And of course, Snow White
Our girls were in heaven and loved spending time one on one with their favorite princesses.
After lunch we headed into the Hollywood section of the park.
The girls loved the trolley with the Newsies singers
And of course the Phineas and Ferb Dance Party
We even managed to make it to Muppets 3D - Jeremy's favorite!
and Jake and the Neverland Pirates
After that, we decided to call it a day. We left the park about 7, and headed to Cafe Rio for dinner. Turns out it was Taco Tuesday, and they had $1.75 tacos. They were amazing. We had the kids in bed by 8 that night, knowing that Wednesday would be our longest day. Stay tuned for more Disney fun!
