    Hello again! The girlfriend and I visited DLR for the day on Friday, the 17th. It took us about 1.5 hours because of morning traffic, but we made it! It wasn't too crowded and it was the first day of Halloween Time. It was fun to see the characters in costumes. We even got to take some photos with a few of them! We had lunch at the Blue Bayou Restaurant, rode on some rides, circled the park and then stationed ourselves for the 9:05pm showing of Fantasmic! We did some shopping on Main Street after that, then called it a night and headed home. :goodvibes

    Now, on to the photos...

    Parked a little closer to the escalators this time.:thumbsup2

    It was almost noon and we had a 1:20pm reservation at the Blue Bayou Restaurant. We were a little hungry so we bought a corndog and shared it.

    After we ate, we headed for the Enchanted Tiki Room for the show.

    After the show, we made our way through Adventureland and on to New Orleans Square.

    We checked in at exactly 1:20pm and went right in to the lobby.

    We waited for about ten minutes before our name was called to be seated.

    Kristine and I each got a souvenir cup with a light-up Buzz!:woohoo:
    [​IMG]

    We also had salads for appetizers.

    Kristine ordered the Buccaneer's Beef Short Ribs.

    I ordered the Tesoro Island Chicken.

    Stuffed.:thumbsup2

    For dessert, we shared the Pumpkin Tiramisu in a souvenir mug!

    After dinner, we walked through New Orleans Square to find a good spot for Fantasmic and the fireworks.

    The usual spot where Kristine and her family sit was taken, so we found some open steps that we claimed. :thumbsup2 I was messing around with my camera while waiting for the show to start. :goodvibes

    I love your trip reports! This is the second one I've read and I really enjoy your pictures. I was going to ask what kind of camera you have too - hahahaha. I had a DSLR that I *love* but want to take something less bulky to the parks.

    More adventures, please!
