It's a Small World After All!!!

After the horsies it was time to walk to It's a Small World which opens at rope drop. Some random Fantasyland pictures:
















And ofcourse I made some pictures in It's a Small World:


















And at the exit of It's a Small World, you can find a cute exhibition sponsored by France Telecom. It's about world wide cummunication. There are many small televisions featuring a child from a country, who is communicating with a child coming from another country through telephone and internet.
And if you look well you will find another tv with that second child communicating with the first child.

Day 2 part 4: Aye Pirates!

Now it was a bit after 10am and Merlijn really wanted to go into Pirates of the Caribean again. So off we went.

We walked past Adventure island. The island is really cool, with different adventurous pathways, through caverns etc. And unlike Tom Sawyers island in WDW, this island is connected to the "main land" with bridges, instead of boats. Making it easier for people to actually get on the island without having to wait for a boat.

Here are some pictures I've made of Adventure Isle with Skull Rock and Captain Hook's boat.






And here some pictures of Pirates of the Caribean. Merlijn put his arms over his head because he was affraid of getting wet. <3

Day 2 part 5: Back to Thunder Mesa

After Pirates we went to ride Big Thunder Mountain again. Merlijn first didnt want to go, untill he told me why: he was affraid to get wet, and he thought I didnt want him to put his hands over his head. After I assured him that he was allowed, he really wanted to ride. Isn't he cute :D

Departing the Thunder Mesa mine (Big Thunder Mountain ), we boarded the Mark Twain riverboat. It goes around the Big Thunder Mountain Island. I've made lots and lots of pictures.

Day 2 part 7: Jules Verne land

It was still early in the day (11 am) so I went outside Disneyland Parc and went all around the Pink Palace (Disneyland Hotel which functions as the entrance port of the Disneyland Parc) to go to Salon Mickey, which is the VIP lounge for Shareholders Club members. You can have a free non-alcoholic drink and some pastries when you are there.



Then we walked through the Discovery Arcade (behind the Mainstreet stores on the right side) towards Discoveryland.

Here are some pics of the arcade:






Discoveryland is a Jules Verne themed land, which is the DLP version of Tomorrowland. Here are some pictures of Discoveryland.

Café Hyperion:


Space Mountain (which got 3 inversions):


Star Tours:




Discoveryland gardens:


And then we went so watch Captain EO. I know this picture is really really bad. But I just had to make and post it.


Orbitron (Disneyland Paris version of Astro Orbiter)

Day 2 part 8: A Disastrous lunch

Then it was 1PM and it was time for our reservation for Walt's An American Restaurant.
That lunch was a big disaster. First Merlijn wet his pants, and I forgot to bring spare clothes with me. So I had to wrap him in a warm blanket so he wouldnt be showing his willy during dinner. And then the waitress was so slow I would nearly thought she was going backwards. I had to wait for over an hour for my main course and she came bringing me my dessert first. And when I asked for my main course she brought it to me right away, but it was clear that it had been waiting for me for a long long time. It didnt taste as good as it should. Next time when Im going to eat at Walt's I request to be helped by a different server.

But the theming of the restaurant is really good. Its like dining in Walt's and Lilly's home. It's very cosy. You dine in different rooms with all kind of props from Walts home.
Here are some pictures:

The stairs to get to the dining floor. (they have an elevator too)




Merlijn and me waiting to be served


View of the other room with the elevator:


A Table in my diningroom:


A ship thingy and Mainstreet USA in the background:


Dining plan voucher:


Merlijn colouring after 30 minutes not being served yet:


Kids menu, they didnt even wanted to offer a milk free dessert at all. And I had to pay extra for extra melon instead of the regular dessert.


Teen menu which ofcourse we didnt order:


Merlijn's plate, in the menu it said that the fish would come with vegetables. Well they didnt came at all. And the lady wanted me to pay for the vegetables.


This was my starter, I dont remember what it was, but it was good!




After a long long hour my duck finally came. It would have been delicious if it was served the moment it was ready. Now it tasted like its been out way to long


This was my dessert, it was Walt's cheese cake. Which was absolutely delicious.


To make it up to us for the long wait, the lady gave us the Tinkerbell cup and a kids coctail shaker for free. Which was kind of nice. Too bad we spend 2,5 hours in that restaurant.
