Disneyland Day 3

Disneyland Day 3

Good morning!

Are you sick of Disney posts?  This is the last one.  I promise 🙂

We started our third day at Disneyland bright and early for Character Breakfast at Storytellers Cafe.  We purchased our trip through Costco (which I highly recommend) so it came with the character dining and a $40 gift card to Disney.  We also saved a few hundred Dollars by booking through them.  Anyway, we made our way down to the restaurant which was in The Grand California and were greeted by a large friendly bear.

What I Ate in Disneyland!

What I Ate in Disneyland!

The last time we went to Disneyland I was eating pretty strict Paleo.  I didn’t really splurge on much other than the pineapple whip which was extremely disappointing.  This time I knew that I still wanted to keep things healthy but wasn’t going to freak out if I splurged on a few treats here and there.  Especially after seeing so many amazing posts on all the great food there was to eat.  Pregnancy excuse?  Maybe a little 😉

I still packed tons of healthy snacks and things to keep us from number one, not spending too much money, and number two, still eating some healthy foods.

Monday when we arrived, we went straight to Downtown Disney for lunch.

Hi there!

So when I left you last we had just ended our first day in Disneyland.  We all went to bed early so we were nice and rested for our first day in the park.

Disneyland Day 1

Disneyland Day 1

Have I ever told you guys that I didn’t go to Disneyland until I was an adult?

I went to Disney World when I was in college but it wasn’t until just a few years ago that I went to Disneyland for the first time.   I have to admit that when we were there in May I kept wondering what all the fuss was about.  It was so overcrowded and we spent more time standing in line than we did doing anything else.  The magic was there but it just wasn’t like I had expected, even with The Love Nugget with us.  We decided to go again this year because we knew with the baby coming we probably wouldn’t return for a few more years.  Plus we wanted to do a fun trip with The Love Nugget before his world gets flipped upside down.  So we planned a few days in February when things are supposed to be much less crowded.  THIS, was a huge winning factor to our trip.  There were so many fewer people there that it truly made for a much more enjoyable trip.  That plus the fact that The Love Nugget was so much more into it this time than last being that he was a few years older.  His excitement just leading up to the trip was enough to make us anticipate the day more than we thought we would.

Like I said we planned our trip for early February and also chose mid-week which we knew would make for fewer people.  We left bright and early on a Monday morning to make the 6 1/2 hour drive to LA.  I know some people are probably thinking we’re crazy for driving but it’s really not all that bad when you leave early enough to miss traffic.   Along with The Love Nugget, we had my mom and mother in law with us which made for a more entertaining drive.  We arrived at Disney Grand California just after 12:00 and dropped off our bags to go explore Downtown Disney.
