You are in for a real treat. As to the breakfast at Storyteller's Cafe, I think this has been my all time favourite character meal. I have done breakfast at 'Ohana, breakfast and dinner at Chef Mickey's, lunch and dinner at Crystal Palace and dinner at Garden Grill at Walt Disney World and breakfast at PCH Grill, lunch at Ariel's Grotto, breakfast at Storyteller's Cafe and dinner at Goofy's Kitchen at Disneyland and the breakfast at Storyteller's Cafe was by far the best of the bunch. Actually, I have not booked any character meal for the next trip, which is unheard of for me.

Well, I may well have to own up to something in the next installment.

Nice update! I kept wondering why you went to CS and not RSR... Then I remembered! I can't get enough of WoC no matter how many times I see it!

What does Graham do while you are in Disney all day? I know there's a lot to do around there, but it makes me curious.

That is quite impressive. I'll definitely have to try it. I haven't done any research on DL yet, but I don't think they do ADRs like WDW. I already bought a book so need to start reading.

I am normally pretty good at acronyms, but this had me puzzd all day. I quickly checked my emails this morning before heading to work. This has kept me amused ever since. Can you please let me know what CS and RSR is? The only thing I could come up with for CS is California Screamin and I don't go near this as it scares me. I drew a complete blank for RSR.

Graham tends to spend a lot of time exploring. That particular day, he had gone to have a ride on the Angel's Flight funicular railway and then went to Long Beach where he did a boat tour. He also really likes Fullerton and usually ends up there at least once every trip.

They do ADRs, but only 60 days in advance and you either have to ring them or send an email.

Day 23

Mickey woke us up again at 7:30 and this time round, we had a bit further to go for breakfast. We had a reservation at Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel. The early morning walk through Downtown Disney was very pleasant. I felt a little lost though when we got to the Disneyland Hotel. When we were there last year, the refurbishment was still in full swing and a lot of it was boarded up. This project is now completed and the building fences have gone. This also means that the access to Steakhouse 55 is now somewhere completely different. Still, we found it without to much trouble. When we got to the podium, I started to get a bit worried. The area was very busy. Sure enough, we were asked to sit in the lounge area until our table was ready. We waited about 10 minutes until we were called. Once we were inside, it was not all that busy. We both had coffee and orange juice followed by New York Steak and Eggs. This consisted of a 7-ounce certified Angus steak, with two eggs, any style and also came with toast or bagel. We both had fried eggs sunny side up. Graham had toast and I went with the bagel. We also got some breakfast potatoes with this and some grapes and strawberries, which had not been mentioned on the menu. I am normally not into breakfast, but this was so delicious.

When we had finished our breakfast, we walked together to the Downtown Disney Monorail station and then I said goodbye to Graham. When I had been online the previous day, I had read that the monorails had a make over to celebrate the upcoming opening of Carsland. They were now called Mona, Mandy and Manny Monorail and had faces on the driver's cab. They also did their own commentary, which was so funny. I got to ride Mona, who is orange. Once I had arrived at Tomorrowland, I headed towards Captain EO. I am not a huge fan of the 3D attractions as most of them freak me out. However, as a lifelong Michael Jackson fan, I had to see this especially as there is no guarantee that this would still be around when we get to Walt Disney World in November. Unfortunately this was down with technical issues. I decided to come back later and headed to Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters instead. True to form, this was pretty much a walk on so I did this ride three times in a row.

http://youtu.be/XaskF_3QqxQ







Once I had enough of zapping aliens, I headed over to Main Street. I spotted Pluto near the Town Square. He had not much of a line either. As I had not really had a chance to meet Pluto on the cruise, I jumped on this chance. I had a nice hug and his escort took a photo of us. When I had said goodbye to Pluto, I went to the Main Street Train Station. I had not headed there as soon as I got to the park as I had arrived a bit after the park opened and I figured that all the tickets for the Lilly Belle had gone already if she was even out and about that day. I still wanted to try to get some photos of her though. So I waited until the train that had just pulled into the station had left and then I approached one of the cast members there. She confirmed that the Lilly Belle was in operation, but that all the tickets for the day had gone. I had not expected anything different, which is why I never asked for a ticket. I explained that I had tried to take some photos of her when she pulled out of Main Street Station earlier during the trip and that this had not worked out. I told her that this was our last day at Disneyland before returning to the UK and I really was hoping to get a couple of decent photos. She told me to sit down in the waiting area while she checked with the conductor who would be on the train. This was all a bit strange, but I figured that it may need the permission of the conductor for me to be on the platform if I was not getting on the train. I would have been perfectly happy to stand on the other side of the gate to take some photos. She came back a couple of minutes later to say to wait there and the conductor would come and see me shortly. She further explained that the conductor would let me quickly take some photos inside the Lilly Belle before escorting the people on that would have tickets. She did point out that I would only have a minute or two to take my photos. I was actually speechless for a minute or two. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I actually would get to take photos inside the Lilly Belle and that had not been my intention when I asked about photos. I just wanted to get some good photos of the outside. Once I found my words again, I thanked my Fairy Godmother.















Once she was gone, I looked around the station for a bit. Shortly afterwards the conductor showed up and asked if I was the person wanting the photos of the Lilly Belle. I confirmed that I was and she told me that the Lilly Belle was due in in about 20 minutes and that she would come for me. I thanked her, too and then she disappeared out back somewhere. Shortly afterwards, she came out again and told me that she was very sorry that I would not be able to ride the Lilly Belle, but she wanted me to have at least a ticket. At this stage I was actually getting a little emotional. What had started as a perfectly innocent question was starting to turn into some serious Pixie Dust. This was absolutely not what I had expected. I thanked the conductor and told her that the ticket would get a special place in my scrapbook. She disappeared again only to come back about 5 minutes later. She asked me how many people were in my party. I told her that it was just me. She replied that all the spaces had been taken on the next train, but if I was in a position to come back in an hour, they had a spare space on the Lilly Belle that I was welcome to take. I very quickly told her that I would love to and thanked her profusely. She added my name on the list and then I decided what I would do with the next hour. I took a few photos from the station and then I left.







I was positively skipping down the stairs. I decided not to venture too far away as I did not want risk missing my train. Pluto was just coming out again so I had another hug from him. When I finished with Pluto, Gepetto was out near Great Moments with Mr Lincoln. He was a new character for me as so far I had only managed to get photos with Pinocchio and Jimminy Cricket on previous trips. So this was too good to pass up. I just missed Mickey in his traditional outfit, but Minnie was out in her polka dot dress and I was last in line for Donald in his Sailor suit. I have so many photos of the characters in special outfits, but next to no photos of the characters in their traditional outfits. So this was a welcome opportunity. While in line for Donald, I learned something else interesting. The cast member doing crowd control for Donald re-directed people who had not made the line to Pixie Hollow. I knew that Walt Disney World used to have Pixie Hollow before they started on the Fantasyland extension. I had no idea that they had Pixie Hollow at Disneyland, too. So before it was my turn to see Donald, I asked where I can find Pixie Hollow. After all the Pixie Dust that I had received that day, it was only fair that I should pay my respects to Tinkerbell and Friends.

Once I had finished with Donald, I headed back to the station and sat down in the waiting area. It was still a little bit early, but shortly afterwards a large family arrived, too. I expected that they were there for the Lilly Belle, too. Not long after that, the conductor for our train arrived and checked if we were there for the Lilly Belle. She escorted us to the exit gate of the platform where she left us until the platform was clear. Then she came back to us and escorted us to the Lilly Belle. This first glimpse of the inside took my breath away. The whole carriage has got dark wood paneling and luxurious furnishings. She laid down some ground rules. We had to be seated whenever the train was in motion, but could get up to look around and take photos whenever we were stationary. Once we were underway, she told us a bit of the history of the Lilly Belle. The Lilly Belle has only been in service since 1974 (we share the same year of "birth") after the previous VIP car was retired. The Lilly Belle actually started her life as one of the Grand Canyon Observation Cars. Our conductor told us that originally the Disneyland Railroad consisted entirely of enclosed observation cars, but after the Grand Canyon display opened, it was deemed that this could best be viewed from open carriages and the old observation cars were retired. Lillian Bounds Disney was heavily involved in the design of the interior of the Lilly Belle, which is why the car was named after her. Initially a lot of family memorabilia where placed inside the Lilly Belle, but they were later removed. Our conductor asked us to sign the guest book and also showed us a photo album with photos of famous guests that have travelled in the Lilly Belle. When we pulled into New Orleans Square Station, I got up to have a proper look around and to take some photos. A member of the family that I was sharing the ride with offered to take a photo of me and the conductor. All to soon, we got moving again and I had to sit down. Our conductor then asked us who we were, where we came from and how we got to ride on the Lilly Belle. I told her that up to two days earlier I had not realised that mere mortals like me could actually ride in the Lilly Belle and that I was absolutely thrilled to have been given the chance. I got up again to take some more photos when we got to Toon Town Station. Then I just sat back and enjoyed the rest of the ride. The family asked for the commentary to switched on when we approached the Grand Canyon display. All too soon our ride was over. I had experienced something really magical that day and I will never forget this.





























When I left Main Street train station, I headed towards Adventureland. I decided to check how long the line was at the kiosk that sells Dole Whips. I had developed a taste for Dole Whip Floats at Walt Disney World in 2009 and had been delighted when I realised that they were available at Disneyland, too. However, last year the lines at this kiosk were always crazy so I never got my Dole Whip Float. When I entered Adventureland, I took some photos and then headed to the kiosk that sells Dole Whip and Dole Whip Floats. There was still a line, but it looked manageable. So I got in line and about 10 minutes later, I had my Dole Whip Float. I headed back towards the hub and sat down to enjoy it.







Once I had finished my drink, I decided to go and find Pixie Hollow. The cast member that I had spoken to earlier had said that it was between the castle and Tomorrowland. I must have walked past there dozens of time and never knew it was there. Still I found it easy enough. There was a bit of a line, but there were a lot of little fairy scenes dotted amongst the landscaping in the area and looking at all the clever detail kept me occupied. There was a family with a girl of around 8 in front of me and she saw all the coins that people had put in the water features and wanted to leave some has well. None of the people with her had any coins. I knew that I had more than enough change in my wallet and got it out to collect the coins together. I gave the little girl all the coins that I had an her face just lit up. Her mother thanked me. It was great to be able to spread a tiny bit of Pixie Dust myself. The coins were duly deposited in the various waterways in this world of the fairies and soon after it was our turn to see the actual inhabitants of Pixie Hollow. I got to see Rosetta first and then Tinkerbell herself. A cast member in the area kindly took photos for me with my camera. The exit for Pixie Hollow is actually in Tomorrowland, so I was right where I wanted to be.

The next stop was Captain EO and this time it was up and running. I had just missed the beginning of a show, but they showed a mini documentary about the making of Captain EO on screens in the waiting area and this was pretty interesting. Soon enough it was time to enter the theater. I had heard that this felt a bit dated. Well, I prefer the term retro and I loved the show. This is one of the very few 3D shows that does not freak me out. The storyline admittedly was a little bit strange, but I liked both the message and the execution. If this is still being shown at Epcot when we get there in November, I will definitely make a point of seeing it again. When the show finished, I headed over to Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters where I did this ride two more times and then I decided to head back to the hotel. I ended up doing hardly anything that I had planned for the day, but I had an amazing time and had no regrets. I went over to the monorail station. I just missed one monorail, but at least I got a good photo of Mandy Monorail. I ended up riding in Mona Monorail again. I had planned to ask if I could ride in the driver's cab, but I decided that I had enough Pixie Dust in one day and just rode in one of the normal coaches.







http://youtu.be/Gr6sIfzlww0

When I got off the monorail at Downtown Disney, I could not resist and headed back to Vault 28. This bag was just perfect in every way. It was the perfect size to hold everything that I need to take to work, it was cheaper than comparable Dooney and Bourke Bags and it was something a bit special as this had been released for the Tinkerbell Half Marathon and was never supposed to go on general release. I knew that I would regret it if I got home without the bag and I also knew that I would not get a second chance to get one. It turned out to be a good purchase as I have hardly left the house without the bag since I got it.





When I got back to our room, Graham was just about to head out. He had done the Art of the Craft Tour at the Grand Californian earlier that afternoon and wanted to revisit some of the spots covered on the tour to take some photos. I decided to tag along and it turned into a full-blown resort hopping exercise. We started out in the Grand Californian and I had another go at taking photos of the lobby as the ones that I had taken last year had not really come out. I also took some photos of the artwork around the lobby. Then we headed out towards Downtown Disney. The glass in the gate to Downtown Disney is actually Tiffany. I took a quick photo of the dragon above the Lego store and then we headed towards the Disneyland Hotel.

It was great to see this fully finished. We did not stop at the Fantasy Tower, which turned out to be a shame in the end, as we had been inside this before, but headed straight to the pool area. Part of the pool area was boarded up last year. I like the Monorail Pool, but the D Ticket Pool and E Ticket Pool did not really do anything for me. They just looked like pretty standard free-form pools. Apparently there is some clever detail hidden in the tiles of those pools, but I could not see this from where we were standing. As we were in the pool area already, I asked Graham if he fancied a drink. I had always planned to take him to Trader Sam's Tiki Bar at some stage and this is very close to the Monorail Pool. I had a fantastic Margarita there in October. So I went with the Rosita's Margarita again, which consisted of Reposado Tequila, Orange Curacao, Organic Agave Nectar, Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice, and Falernum. My memory had not deceived me and it was absolutely delicious. Graham went with a Piranha Pool, which consisted of Strawberry Vodka blended with Pineapple Juice, Cream of Coconut, Strawberry Puree, and Blue Curacao. We also had a look at the food menu, but decided to be sensible and not spoil our appetite. I am sure we will be back on a future trip for a light dinner.

Once we had finished our drinks, we headed over to the Frontier Tower. Graham had seen a scale model of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad there and wanted to show this to me. This looked impressive. I also loved the chairs in this area, which looked like cow fur. We decided to take one of the lifts as high as we could go to see if we could get a nice view. We succeeded with a small roof terrace and the view was pretty stunning. We then headed over to the Adventure Tower. This also had some pretty impressive artwork, but nothing like the model at the Frontier Tower. I then decided that I wanted to try to take some photos of the the scale model of Aulani and as the DVC Preview Centre was virtually next door, we went over there. I took my photos and then we had a wander around the grounds of the Disneyland Hotel before heading over to the Paradise Pier Hotel.

At the Paradise Pier Hotel, we had a look around the lobby first and then we headed up to check out the pool area . The pool there is located on a rooftop terrace and is nothing special. We then went in search of a view again and found another rooftop terrace where we had a fantastic view and I even saw the top of Crystal Cathedral, which is the closest I got to that this holiday. We somehow got turned around, but we found a real gem in glass lift that was running along the outside of the building. Graham took a video of our ride in the lift and I got some nice photos of the Paradise Pier section of California Adventure.













http://youtu.be/b1VlVlqH_y0

We then headed back to Grand Californian. I wanted to take a photo of the DVC car that is always parked outside the hotel. We then headed out to the pool area. Graham wanted to show me a few things. One of the gates used to line up with the sun on the Sun Wheel at California Adventure. What the designers had not taken into account is that the trees in the pool area would grown and this kind of spoiled the effect. Of course , the Sun Wheel is now Mickey's Fun Wheel, but you can still get an idea how this would have looked originally. There is also an elaborate design in the pavement in the area, which is actually a sun dial. However, the sun was not cooperating at the time. I took some more photos in the pool area and then we went inside the Storyteller's Cafe. We asked the hostess if it was OK if we came inside to take some photos and she was happy to accommodate this request. The restaurant was nearly empty and we quickly took our photos and left. I quickly wanted to take a photo of the sign outside Napa Rose and then we headed back to our room.































When we got back to the room, I quickly took a couple of photos of our view and then I started packing. Soon it was time to head over to the Disneyland Hotel once more for our dinner reservation at Steakhouse 55. We had such a great meal there after our vow renewal vow renewal last year that I definitely wanted to go back this year. We tend to have a special meal on the last night of every holiday and this fit the bill perfectly. I was a little bit concerned that I would not like it as much this time round. I was so caught up in the magic of the day that I was not sure how objective I was about the food. I need not have worried. The food was divine. On the way to the restaurant, we stopped at the business centre to do our online check in. I needed to pay for an extra bag and it was cheaper to do this online. This time round, I had no problem checking in online and it accepted my passport details without any issues. With this out of the way, we walked across Downtown Disney to the Disneyland Hotel. When we got to Steakhouse 55, we got seated straightaway. Our table ended up being close to where we were sitting for our vow renewal meal. We both passed on starters. I had Filet Mignon and Macaroni and Cheese with 4 cheeses and bacon, which was every bit as delicious as it was last year. Graham decided to have some steak this time and went with Bone-in Ribeye with the Signature "Steakhouse 55" Rub and Sautéed Green Beans with Applewood-Smoked Bacon. He enjoyed his meal, too. We both just had water with our meal as we still had a bottle of wine to drink back at the room. We did however have room for dessert. Graham had Vanilla Bean Creme Brûlée with Orange Lace and Almond Cookie. I went with the Berries poached in Chambord with Mascarpone Sorbet and Brittany Cookie. This was both deliciously light and satisfying. This was one of the best desserts I have ever tasted.





Once we had finished our desserts, we paid our bill and then decided to have a wander around Fantasy Tower. When we got to the lobby, I bitterly regretted that I had not brought the camera. The seats there looked like the tea cups on Mad Tea Party. After we had a quick look around we strolled through Downtown Disney back to the hotel. When we got back, we finished our packing and then settled down on the balcony with our bottle of wine to watch World of Color. The wine was nice, but a little bit too rich for my taste. World of Color however was amazing as usual and a fitting conclusion to a magical day. Graham tried to record it, but after having taken photos the previous day, I just sat back and enjoyed. When World of Color had finished, we went inside, finished our wine and then settled down for the night.
