Captain Hook....Screaming in French!

All right, so we left off with me having an incredibly poor performance on Buzz Lightyear. I'm so ashamed of it....we won't talk about it again.

We headed into the castle to do some exploring. I love being able to walk up and explore the inside of the castles.





I so want one of these for my house.



Good morning to you Fantasyland!!!





Let's play "spot the goober!"







After our exploration of the castle, it was time to head over to Peter Pan. Now, be ready. The boats on this one have TWO ROWS! The wait time was only 20 minutes. Score! So we get up there and they tell us to all get in the back row. Um.........

We did fit though. Amazingly enough.

The ride was great. Not amazingly different, except that Hook screams in French at the end of the ride. Love it!

Hi folks!



On to Alice's Curious Labyrinth. Who doesn't love the Caterpillar?





The Old Mill.



We headed over to It's A Small World. I'm not going to bombard you with photos on this one. Because I took a lot!





The layout is completely different, and I loved it! It's so cool!





They even have mermaids here!



For my friends from Canada.



Welcome to Hollywood!



I loved this version. It's a lot better than the WDW one, in my opinion. I just loved it.

Up Next:
A fabulous dinner.

I can't get over how vibrant all of the colors are! It reminds me of a jigsaw puzzle that I have of a (Japanese?) theme park. So beautiful.

How cool that you can explore the castle!

I'm glad that IASW is better at DLP!

Is that your dad being a goober? I love her dad - he's so cute! Not a goober at all.

That castle looks amazing and I actually wish you had posted some pics of IASW (wait - did I just say that?). I would be interested to see this cooler version. Of course, anything must be cooler than the version in WDW.

Pretty pictures. I really enjoy seeing pics of DLP. So cool!

It's just a labyrinth of Alice in Wonderland displays. It's cute to wander through.

I know, I love that about it there. So bright and fun.

IASW was so shiny and new!

Thanks for the heads up. Those pictures are so cool. DLP IASW is SO MUCH COOLER than the WDW version. Now that's a ride I could ride a couple times in a row and probably wouldn't even mind getting stuck in it. Well, maybe not, but your get the idea!

No problem. It is so much cooler, isn't it? I just loved it. I want to see the one in Disneyland too. And the song wasn't as bad either. It may have been because I was in another country, but you know.

I completely agree, the Paris iasw is way better. I mean they have Canadians playing hockey, what's not to love?
Loved playing spot the goober. You should make that a regular game! Your dad is so funny.
What gorgeous pictures around fantasyland! That castle... oh oh oh, so pretty!

Wow... I am really say that we missed IASW on our daytrip to DLP... I had no idea... It really is lovely and looks like its worth a special detour... (hmmm.... a detour from Philadelphia...) I do like the IASW in DL a bit better as well... they've incorporated characters from movies into the country scenes...ie Mulan in China etc... it add to the interest looking for them...

I did do the walkthrough of the Castle and thought that was really charming... I was always a little sad that there wasn't anything in Cinderella's castle... (aside from the restaurant) or in Sleeping Beauty's Castle in DL... I'm glad they thought to put that in in Paris...

I love that IASW. It's definitely my favorite. Now, I have not seen the one in Disneyland, but this one definitely trumps WDW.

I loved everything about it! All of the countries they had more clearly represented. Hahaha.

I am totally going to make a "spot the goober" game for our July trip.

I could not agree more. IASW is so Disney.

I'm sorry that you missed it when you went for your day trip. It is really far in the back of the park, so it could be somewhat easy to miss.

I have not seen the one in DL yet, but I really really want to! I love the idea of adding the characters in.

Cinderella's Castle is so deceiving. It's one of those things that you look at and you're like, there has to be something inside.....nope. Nada. Just restaurants and things you have to pay for.
