Once we were done creating energy through children's screams it was back out in to the hot California sun!

We again just walked around and ended up passing by the Monsters University photo area



and the stage



and Mike Wazowski



We realized the parade was starting soon and it was on my DL to do list so we took a seat in the shade and relaxed. We saw Mr. Incredible greeting fans



It's so weird to me seeing characters without attendants!



Soon it was parade time! This parade is basically what Disney should have done with that horrible DHS block party parade.

It started off with a special Monsters University tribute



Which this girl was extremely excited about



It ain't a party without Roz!



Collegiate monsters



Art my favorite from that movie!





Sulley!!





23-19 23-19!!



Mike heading up the end of the float



Next up the Incredibles








The dancers costumes were super cute!





I love that Jack Jack actually caught on fire





This is why I am working at Disney because it seems like everyone is super happy



Violet

Time for our under the sea friends!



Totally!



Now he is the only one who doesn't look too happy about being in a parade





The jellyfish costumes are too cute!



Then the bugs!!





I wonder if the people tell their friends "Oh yeah I play Heimlich's body"

"I'm the butt"





Flik and Atta








The toys are back in town!







The Lightyear girls



I love that they have Lotso's truck in the parade!









"I got a promotion I went from playing Heimlich's butt to Slinky Dog's butt"





And last but not least Cars!







It was a very cute parade and I am so glad we stopped to watch it!

After the parade we decided to go wait by the Monsters meet and greet area. We had to meet them today because we were dressed for the occasion!



We waited there for a while and it turned out he was meeting near the ride instead. The CMs were very nice and lead everyone over there and proceeded to let us be first in line since we would have been had he made it to the right spot.



Once we had fulfilled that mission we tried figuring out what to do next! We bypassed Muppets which is the same as in DH and we all know I am not a huge fan of that show.



We decided to head back to get some adult beverages!






Dad got a beer from this truck



All of the beers they sell are made in California!



and I had a margarita!


While we were sitting down relaxing we saw this guy come out from the backstage area







He has quite the sound system!




We decided to follow him but first some pictures!







and some pictures of the area







I think it was at this point mom and I went in here and got matching hoodies for our November trip!

We really just liked wandering the park. We stumbled upon another performance and it was Goofy directing water.





It must be there way of making sure everything is set for World of Color but being sneaky about it! Why not turn it in to a performance?!

I am sure a ton of people love the Little Mermaid but here and now in Florida it's a walk on!



There set up is made to look like a museum in Cali



The rides are very similar

Scuttle welcomes you to the ride













There used to be this huge deal about Ariel's hair in the ride. They had her hair floating up, which it would be if she was underwater, and everyone thought she looked like she had an ice cream cone head. They ended up changing it and the one here and in WDW now have "beautiful I am not really underwater" hair.



My hair does not look that good in a swimming pool



We of course waved hi to grandma and told her we missed her!





Then we sang along sha la la la la my oh my..







and they lived happily ever after!

King Triton has to be the most ripped animatron



When we got out of the ride we stumbled upon the end of the Phineas and Ferb show!



I swear every ten seconds there is a show going on at DCA and I love it!



While we were in this area there was one place we wanted to stop



No not the water ride! We are not water ride people!

We are Wilderness Explorer people though



The area is very cute and if you fill out the guide they give you then you can get your badge!

We got our badges (which I am pretty sure consisted of us making fools of ourselves hopping on one foot) and stopped in this shop





We also laughed at the people who were going to get soaked!



Then we headed out of the park!

Up next! More Racers and World of Color![/

It doesn't look like you had to fight for a good parade spot.

Wonderful photos!! Love the parade pics, and thanks for posting pics of the Redwood creek area, I have been meaning to look into that as I am hoping it will be a nice respite area for Aria (my 2 YO dd) to run around a bit.

I am back home from our trip to Disneyland and all caught up on your report! Awesome pictures, I love the Pixar Parade! We did not catch it this time around though.

Because of your report DH and I decided to go to Trader Sams the night we got to Cali and had such a good time, that we went back a couple days later for my birthday! I also had the fish tacos too. We would not have known much about that if it weren't for your report and it was actually a highlight of our trip. So thank you for that!!

Thank you!

It is the perfect area! There is a ton to do over there! There are also slides and swings but we were too big for that stuff

What a wonderful Trip Report! Thank you both so much! I just spent so much of my afternoon reading every bit! We are headed to DLR and are staying at PPH concierge this July. Our first family trip to So Cal. So psyched and you have me even more psyched!
Here I was second guessing Paradise Pier - Not anymore!
