We headed towards Fantasyland with Michelle & I noticed a crowd of people on the left of the castle.....so I climbed up on the benches & snapped a few pictures of my favorite princess~~Cinderella!




So we got in line for Snow White & Ty took a couple pics of the Clock Tower on top of Peter Pan.




Our next ride was on Mr Toad's Wild Ride...Ty opted to sit this one out. We rode the teacups....but no pics on any of the Fantasyland rides.

Our next thing to do was to find a spot to catch Mickey's Soundsational Parade. So we headed to the courtyard area in front of It's a Small World and found our spot. Michelle went to find some lunch & Tyler used our wait time as a good time for a quick catnap.....lol



It was finally time for the parade to start.......its starts out with the Drum Corp.









Here's Minnie & Mickey with their colorful float.







Pluto followed behind.




Goofy with his float.

This is so true! Even moreso I think in DL than in the MK. I had such a blast watching Cruella and Chip & Dale with the Fireman Band on our trip. Would have loved to see Mickey and Minnie with the Straw Hat Band! That is my number one piece of advice to all Disney Park visitors ... don't run from attraction to attraction ... stop for the little things! They made the trip extra special!

It's those little things that what set Disney apart from other parks. All those details, the entertainers, theming, castmembers, etc. If you run from one "ride" to the next....you're totally missing the point of Walt's parks!!

Love love this installment. Mickey and Minnie were so cute and I never saw them dancing together before. SO cute!! And I LOVED the fireman band and all the characters esp Cruella. That guy was hilarous!! I love see people, esp ones you wouldn't think would get into it, having fun. I also loved seeing the old man in the back with the big smile and clapping. So many people think of Disney as a place for kids and it is so nice to see ALL ages enjoying themselves. But I have to say what was with the lady with the purple shirt and short brown hair. Yikes. GRUMPY lol. How can you watch stuff like that and NOT have a smile on your face. Heck I had a smile just looking at the pics LOL.

I agree I am getting to the age where I only like to do the rides maybe once and then I let the girls go on rides and I just love to sit and people watch or see things like this. For years it was all about run here run there and just do the "big" stuff but now I am enjoying sitting back and enjoying the "little things".

By the way I have to say I have only been on astro orbitor a few times but it is actually pretty fun. Next time you go with the kids you should try it. I bet they would love it.

Oh and Innoventions is another I thought I wouldn't care about but the house of the future is REALLY cool and they have an interactive Peter Pan bedroom you will love it. Plus they have the little robot Asimo that is really cool.

Next time you go you should check it out!

Now you'll know when to stop to see Mickey & Minnie....if you see the Strawhatters......they'll most likely be joining them!! I really had fun just watching both of these performances. Wonderful musicians!!! The characters are an added bonus!!

How funny.....I hadn't looked at the people in the background of my photos. She looks like the type that rarely smiles....but she stayed & watched....so she must have been enjoying it. I think.........

I'll get into Innoventions one of these trips....I always plan to do it, but just haven't yet. I'm sure once I do, I'll be kicking myself for waiting so long.....lol Astro Orbitor just doesn't interest me.....it's kinda like Dumbo, but I'm really not into "space" stuff. (Love Space Mtn....for the dark rollercoaster & Star Tours because its just awesome). But space/astronauts/etc is not really an interest of mine....so riding in a rocket isn't on the top of my list.

I was looking in the background too, and noticed how many people weren't smiling when that guy was up there with Cruella. I would have been giggling like a little girl if I had witnessed that, haha. I did notice the old man though. How cute.

Let's get back to Mickey's Soundsational Parade. When I left you, Donald Duck had just gone by and next up was the beautiful princess float.

The royal dancers preceded the float.







The pretty float with Snow White, Aurora, Rapunzel, Cinderella & Belle.......one does have to ask if Jasmine was in trouble and that's why she wasn't included in this parade?????

People just need to learn to relax........those moments are what makes Disneyland so fun. They just need to learn to go with the flow.........
