I just booked Cafe Orleans for 10/26. The only time left was 7:30 with Fantasmic starting at 9:00. Hopefully, we do not finish eating before the show starts (unless we finish early and just go out and find a decent place to stand). Hydro guy's super thread confirmed my suspicion that seating at Cafe Orleans offers terrible viewing of Fantasmic. You're right that I should try to do both though.

I am more excited about this reservation than I am about Blue Bayou on our anniversary. We wanted to dine at Napa Rose, but it does not open until 5:30. There is no way we can eat there and make it to the opening of the Halloween Party (must do to get in character lines and merchandise) unless we skip dessert and go to dinner in our Halloween costumes. I do not want to do either. By dining inside the park, we can start eating at 5pm (getting us out in time for the party). The idea of dining in our costumes on our anniversary kind of stinks, so we may bring them in and change after dinner.

Thanks for all your help. You really are a valuable DIS friend (probably the best when it comes to Disneyland). I appreciate you.

I have seen people dining at the restaurant during Fantasmic but always assumed they could not see very well. Many people stand in front of them in the walkways. The CMs try to keep them clear but it takes time to get one group out before the next group moves in.

I may give that a try though. If it does not work out, I can convince Crap that I really want to watch and hope he lets us stay for the second show. We have to get up early for the airport the next day, so I doubt he will allow it.
The DL version show is way better over the WDW version. But just as you said that the WDW version has teh seating where the DL doesn't unless you do the F! dessert package or the tables at the restaurants.

I have walked passed by CO at times during F! and the viewing area is not that good with the people walking during the show. The F! CM's have a difficult job to tell the guests that they can't stand in a specific area to watch the show. I have seen guests not too happy of not being able to stay in a spot where it isn't allowed.

That is great news to hear that you and your family have booked at CO during your upcoming trip. I'm hoping for the same thing that you will be at CO during the 9pm show of F! and to see the show. You will enjoy the food at CO and see the first show of F!.

It would be nice if the Napa Rose has lunch hour times so you can make have dinner and make it in time for MHP. That is one of the restaurants that I have never ate and will eat there one day.

Your welcome Kim. Glad that I can help you with the info.

Day 2 – September 15, 2013 – Part 5

Day 2 – September 15, 2013 – Part 5

After we watched the 5:40pm Mickey and the Magical Map show at the Fantasyland Theater, we are now at Café Orleans to have dinner that night. It was nice to have dinner at Café Orleans with Alison, Fran, PiO, her DH and DS that night.

After we ordered our food and it came to the table, we all had our cameras and got pictures of each dish.

The Pommes Frites which is something that I always wanted to try at CO. It is traditional French-fried potatoes with Parmesan cheese, garlic and parsley with a Cajun spice remoulade.


Fran and Alison got the French Onion Soup.


Most of the food pictures that I took that night, I didn’t use flash since I want to show you what it looked like that night.

Then a while ago, we got our entrees that night. Alison and Fran shared the Monte Cristo together. PiO, her DS and I shared a Monte Cristo and Three Cheese Monte Cristo since the Monte Cristo can fill you up quickly. I knew that I wasn’t going to finish the Monte Cristo plate so the three of us shared the Monte Cristo and the Three Cheese Monte Cristo. I only ate 2 pieces of the Monte Cristo since it filled me up quickly.

Monte Cristo


Three Cheese Monte Cristo

DH ordered the N’awlins Vegetable Ragout


When we finished dinner at Café Orleans, Alison and Fran had VIP seating for the fireworks and F! that night. The fireworks which will be Remember Dreams Come True will start at 9:30pm and we will be watching the 2nd show of F! at 10:30pm.

While we were in NOS, we were talking about taking the Disneyland Railroad from the NOS to the Main Street station since one of Alison and Fran scooters was not working. But the only problem is that the DLRR stop running trains when the fireworks start. So we all head on over to Main Street station which is where we will be watching the fireworks.

We got to the Main Street Railroad station one hour before RDCT starts for Alison and Fran. The viewing area was really nice from the MS station. PiO and I set up our tripods in the backside of the benches since we will be taking firework trail pictures.

Just before the RDCT starts at 9:30pm, I head on over to the Disney Gallery store at MS right next to Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln to get the Tangled picture for my DB. He is a fan of Tangled and the picture that was available at the Disney Gallery just came out this weekend. So I had to get that picture for him since his birthday is next weekend. I talked to the CM’s if I could pick It up later that night and they can do that. It was nice to come back later that night to pick it up so I won’t have to carry it around that night. I had a hunch that we will be at the Disney Gallery store later that night. But that will be on anther post.

Here is a picture of the Tangled picture that I bought that night.


After buying the picture, I met up with everyone and we all waited until it was time for the 9:30pm show of RDCT. Just before it was time for RDCT fireworks, PiO and I were talking about the settings on the DSLR for the firework trails. I also used the 0.9 Neutral Density filter on the 18-105mm lens. I set the Aperture at f/16.0 and ISO speed at 200. The shutter speed was changed during the show for each different fireworks scene. I also can’t wait to see PiO’s firework trail pictures that she took that night. But here is her trip report link. Anyone Game? It’s my Sep 2013 Blog! 1 day Countdown #1148, 09/12 and Alison trip report link Ready, Set, Let the Games Begin! – Our first WDW Breakfast.

Here are pictures that I have took that night.


































That’s it for now and I will have more pictures from RDCT fireworks that night.

After that review, I am glad I am dining at Cafe Orleans. I am getting the Monte Cristo for sure.

Your fireworks pictures are outstanding as usual.

It was really nice of you to get that picture of Rapunzel and Flynn for your brother. I hope he liked it.

Cafe Orleans has great reviews and it will be nice to eat at the restaurant one day again. The Monte Cristo will fill you up quickly.

Thank you Kim. The pictures are getting better and better. But during this past trip in September, PiO helped me a lot with the settings on my DSLR for the fireworks that night.

I did send him a text of the picture during the trip and asked him if he wanted it. He told me that he doesn't want it. But I can tell that he would like it. So with his birthday coming up next month during the trip, it would be a nice birthday present since he is a fan of Tangled and it just came out.


Just got back from Sleep Train Arena where my aunt, cousin Chris, my aunt BF and DD3 got to see Disney on Ice: Passport to Adventure.


We also had Chinese dinner tonight before we head on over to see Disney on Ice: Passport to Adventure.

Here are some food porn from that night.

Cool. Which Disney show is that? We just saw Pirates and Princesses over the weekend. It was great, but it was not on ice.

The show was called Passport to Adventure. The show tells the story of an adventure by Mickey and Minnie that lets them see parts of Under the Sea, Hawaiʻ, Never Land and Africa. It showed movie characters and scenes from the Lion King, the Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch & Peter Pan. I have read that it is the longest running show on tour. I took a few pictures of the show with my iPhone and they didn't turned out well. I thought about bringing my DSLR camera but there are times when I go to the arena and they don't allow DSLR's in the arena.

That is neat that you got to see Pirates and Princess last weekend. Was it a Disney event or something else?

Day 2 – September 15, 2013 – Part 6

We are now watching the 9:30pm Remember Dreams Come True fireworks from the Main Street station in Town Square. This is a spot that I have never watched the fireworks from and it was a nice spot to watch it all the way back. Alison, Fran, PiO’s DH and DS were sitting on the benches while PiO and I are standing up taking pictures of RDCT that night. It was nice to take pictures of the fireworks that night with PiO while she has given me good tips of taking pictures with the DSLR. Now let’s get back to the pictures of RDCT fireworks.





















After the RDCT was over, DS was getting tired. PiO and DH told us that he didn’t get a lot of sleep ever since they got to the U.S. DH told PiO that he will take him back to the hotel and will try to make it back in time to meet us for the 10:30pm show of Fantasmic!.

When DH took DS back to the hotel which is not too far from the DLR, Alison, Fran, PiO and I head on over to the Rivers of America to see the 2nd show of F!. But when we were walking up on Main Street, most of the guests are now leaving the park which is a little hard to walk through.


We had to go through Frontierland to enter the area for Fantasmic! since Adventureland is used for the exit for the guests who watched the first show of F! at 9pm.

The Ray Bradbury tree is light up at night which is so nice to see during the Halloween season.


Over at the Dia de Los Muertos, the event was still going on at night with it the music playing and dancing in the area.


We got to the viewing area right by the Rivers of America where we are going to see the show but the area is not handicapped accessible and the seating was on the ground. Fran had to go to the handicapped section on the other side of the viewing area and couldn’t watch the show with all of us.

Just about 5 minutes to go until the 10:30pm F! show started, DH just made it in time to watch the show with us. I was amazed that he was able to drop off DS at the hotel and made it all the way to the viewing area with about 30 minutes.

Now it is time for the 2nd show of F! that night. I have seen F! a lot of times and it was nice to watch F! from a different spot. I have used my DSLR that night to take pictures of the show while I didn’t use the tripod or my video camera. Here are pictures from the F! that night.

Mickey Mouse








Kaa the snake from the Jungle Book


Monkeys from the Jungle Book


King Louie and the monkeys


You can barely see them but these are the elephants from Dumbo


Pinocchio and the two female marionettes




That’s it for this post and I will have more from Fantasmic!.

We've never seen that one. It sounds cool. Yes, the pirates were from Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and the princess was Sofia the First. Peter Pan and Cinderella made appearances. Doc McStuffins opened the show. They were all preschool based, so my boys loved them. Of course, they loved the pirate one the most, because Crap bought them swords to play with.

Your fireworks view, while different than your usual one, is fantastic. There are no heads in your shot. Where exactly were you guys? I can picture you and PiO standing there taking amazing pictures whilst discussing camera settings. I cannot wait to see the ones she got as well. Yours are outstanding as usual.

It is cool that her DH made it back in time to see the show. With all of the crowds and madness, he must have been booking it. Too bad Fran could not sit with you. My Dad cannot sit with us at WoC either. I wish Disney would change that policy a little. Although, I realize they would have to design sections to do so.

While we were having our treats, a DISer that PiO talk to about meeting was going to meet her at the Cozy Cone Motel where we are having our snacks. I forgot the name of the DISer and her child that we met up that morning. When you read this post PiO, can you tell everyone the name of this DISer. The one thing I know about her that she is from NorCal.
The Disser is BringingUpDisney.

Your sons would like this show. That is neat that the show had a lot of Disney characters. That is very nice of Crap to buy them swords.

This was also my first time take pictures of the fireworks from the Main Street station. It was unique to watch and take pictures from this spot since it is elevated from the ground and I can get the fireworks in other areas around the park then from the castle and the backstage area. We were watching RDCT from the Disneyland Railroad Main Street station on the elevated level. Here is a picture of PiO and me (you can not see my face since my camera was in the way but I did wear my Glow with the Show ears which you can see) from Alison's trip report right at the Disneyland Railroad Main Street station.


We did talk about what settings to used that night to take the firework trail pictures. I also can't wait to see her pictures from her trip as well while I have seen some of them during the trip.

With all the crowds leaving the park and having to come back in, we were all amazed that he was able to get to the viewing area with us just before the 10:30pm show of F! started. It was easy for DH and DS to leave the park without being in the crowds since they were at the MS station. For us, we had to walk through the crowds of getting to the Rivers of America. DH is a really fast person to make it back in time. I don't think I could have made it back in time to meet up with everyone. It was a shame that Fran couldn't be with us during the show. The area that we were watching F! that night was at a stairway area that leads to the walkway to the edge of the viewing area of the RoA. Fran was able to see the show that night and I believed before the show started that she went to one of the stores in NOS.

Thank you PiO. I got to give you a lot of credit for helping me a lot.

Thank you for clarifying during the DISmeet at the Cozy Cone Motel with DISer BringingUpDisney.

I knew your DS would enjoy the Mad Arcade. But we all had a great time that day.

Thank you PiO. You also had some great pictures that night as well. You took some great fireworks that night without the remote.


The next post will be up shortly.

Day 2 – September 15, 2013 – Part 7

Day 2 – September 15, 2013 – Part 7

We are now watching the 10:30pm 2nd show of Fantasmic! at DL that night. After watching RDCT from the Main Street Railroad Station, DH took DS back to the room and was able to meet us by the Rivers of America to watch F!. We were all surprised to see that he was able to make it in time before the show started.

Back with more pictures from F! that Sunday night.

The Columbia is making its way down the Rivers of America with characters from Peter Pan








Peter Pan vs Captain Hook




At the end of the Columbia, there is Tick-Tock the Crocodile at the end but it wasn’t out there that night. It must have been down during that night.

Now the princesses floats.

Belle and the Beast




Ariel and Eric


Snow White and Prince Charming


Evil Queen


The old Hag


Mickey and Maleficent




It’s Murphy!!!




Mickey sleighs the dragon






Mark Twain approaching with a lot of Disney characters












The show was great like always every time I see it ever since Fantasmic! debut in 1992. Can’t believe it has been over 20 years since this show has been entertaining guests at DL.

We waited around the area until Fran came back from the handicapped section. Alison knew that one of her scooters was completely dead so we all helped her push the dead scooter all the way towards Main Street.

Just before we left the park, Fran head on over towards the Disney Gallery store to buy some merchandise. I also had to stop at the store as well to pick up the Tangled picture that I have bought for my DB. Fran spent a lot of time in the store and we all hanged out at the store until the park closed at 11pm.

When Fran finished her shopping, PiO, DH and I helped pushed Alison scooter until when we got to the new Starbucks location at DTD. She told us that she can push her scooter all the way to their room. So this is where we parted ways that day and we will see them again tomorrow morning for the next day.

PiO, DH and I walked back towards the Esplanade and to the bus loading area so we can head back to our hotels.

When we got to BWAI which is where I am staying, we parted ways and we will see each other on Monday morning. Since the park opens at 10am, we don’t have to be there early like Sunday.

That concludes the Sunday with the DISmeet with PiO, her DH, DS, Alison, Fran and BringingUpDisney. It was really nice to be able to come down during the trip where it wasn’t supposed to happen. But my DB and his GF were coming down and I owe them a big thank you when they were coming down to SoCal to help her brother get ready for Irvine University. This was a memorable DISmeet trip where we all got to do a lot of rides that day, shows and eating at different restaurants. The best was meeting up with everyone during the trip but I also had fun with PiO showing me different settings on the DSLR. I will now be doing more manual modes on my DSLR for future trips. PiO got me to ride GRR which is one of the rides that I don’t like to go on and I was able to go on with them. It was also great to have dinner with everyone that night where I haven’t ate at Café Orleans in a long time. Seeing RDCT fireworks and F! was great as well.

This concludes Sunday and now to the last day of the trip for me. But it will also be a fun one to spend some time with PiO, her family, Alison and Fran at the parks.

Your Fantasmic pictures are amazing. You must have had great seating. Sounds like an excellent DISmeet indeed. Glad you and PiO were there to help Fran and Alison with the scooter issues. I know Alison was having pain in her legs, so it was brave of her to push the scooter from DtD to their room alone.
