Here's the family:







*+*+*+*FOOD PORN*+*+*+*

We started with 2 orders of the Pomme Fritas, these are fries with garlic & cheese....delicious!!:





Everyone had a cup of the gumbo:




Anthony had the Macaroni & cheese:



Addy got the Chicken with pasta & marinara sauce:



We ordered 3 of the Monte Cristo's that the 6 adults shared....these are way too rich to eat more than one or two wedges:





A couple more family pics:




For dessert we got 2 plates of the beignets.....yummy!!







2 Pomme Fritas, 6 cups Gumbo, 3 Monte Cristos, 2 Beignets, 8 drinks + Tax + Tip = $166.11 less 15% AP Disc = $146.49
We love this restaurant!! The food is so good & served hot! We absolutely fell in love with Gumbo after having it for the first time here in 2009. The Monte Cristo's are so rich & good...especially when dipped in the berry compote. The kids loved their meals as well & also loved the Pomme Fritas. The Mickey beignets are the perfect ending for the meal. I think the prices for this restaurant are very good & we actually prefer Cafe Orlean's over Blue Bayou. They have the same style of food but much cheaper.


After dinner is next!

After we left the restaurant, I saw this in front of the store across from the Cafe Orleans:






I'm drawing a bit of a blank on what we did right after dinner. I know that Derek, Tyler & I took the twins back to the motel. This is what we saw as we were leaving the park:













Out in the esplanade:



Some of the garbage & filth we noticed this trip......not Disney like to see things dirty & stuff on the ground:






Mike, Betty, Nick, Anthony & Addy stayed & rode rides, shopped & looked around. Mike came back to the motel & left Anthony & Addy with Betty at the gates, so Derek & I could take them to see the fireworks by the castle. We met up with them & then Betty caught the shuttle back to the motel.

Tyler decided to come back over & went into the exhibit at the Great Moment's with Mr Lincoln:



























Next up will be the rest of our evening.

A couple more pics from the exhibit:




When Tyler came out....look who he found!:



Derek & I during this time had taken Anthony & Addy up by the castle to find a spot to watch the fireworks. Here are some of the photos I got prior to the show starting:














Next post will have Fireworks!!!

After the fireworks, we got a text from Tyler saying he was in line for the Matterhorn, so we headed over there to meet him. We found out that he had watched the fireworks from Tomorrowland...so here are his pics:









We went to ride Space Mountain & use some of our Fast Passes, when we got up to the CM he said the FP line was over 30 minutes...so we decided to go ride BTMRR instead. Anthony & Addy were getting cold, so we had to go find them sweatshirts before we did anything else. We ended up over by the castle, so Tyler took the kids thru the Sleeping Beauty walk-thru. He tried to get pictures, but didn't have a lot of luck......but he did get quite a few that I'll put on here:



















The end of our Disneyland time up next.

A few more from the castle:







Up by BTMRR before we took our very last ride of the trip:




Everyone was tired, so we decided it was time to say good-bye to Disneyland. We headed back to Main Street where I got a couple more pics.







We did make a stop in the candy shoppe to get a bag full of goodies to take home with us. As we got thru the Disneyland gates, poor Addy was basically sleeping & walking....so Derek picked her up & carried her all the way back to the HoJo. Good thing he's a young strong kid!!

This doesn't mean I'm done. I'm gonna give a review of what we did & what we missed this trip, 2 more travel days, meeting more Diser's, photopass pics & scanned photos we bought during our time there.

Nooooo, it can't end. Go again, 'kay?

I love your pics! So detailed. Did you get to actually enjoy things or were you photographing the whole time??!! LOL It's been great to follow along. And OMG, Cafe Orleans is one of my fave places to eat.

Thanks for sharing.

All caught up again, can't wait to read and see more though!

Is Surf's Up the only restaurant with that Chocolate PB Banana French Toast? Chocolate PB is my most favorite food combination so I would love to try this. Just not sure how many character meals we will do our 1st trip - I have Goofy's kitchen ranked 1st for food & Characters than Minnie's for characters (would love to see Pooh bear and/or Alice), and might have to add Surf's up too!

Any updated news on Little Mermaid? I've heard May 2011 and we are going the 1st week of May so thinking I will miss it then.

BBQ, Pomme Fritas, Beignets, and Monte Cristo all look sooooo yummy and are also on my list of places to go - probably not on the same day though since that would be a lot of heavy food!

I'd love to go again.....I'm ready to move down there!! lol

I did enjoy myself....I just snapped a lot of photos in the process!!

Cafe Orleans is the bomb!! That's why we saved it for our final meal at Disneyland!!

As far as I know, the Surf's Up meal is the only place you can get the Choc/PB french toast.

It's always possible they may open a tad early....but not the expert on those kinds of things...lol

All good food but as you said.....heavy foods!! That's why we found 2 meals a day to work out nicely.

I have found on trips that I normally prefer the two meals a day when I am at Disneyland. I am sorry to see it end too.

You were talking about blogging. I find that I like tumblr.com, you can do random posting and carry on conversations with your friends that are on tumblr. Like me!!
