Sequoia Lodge which we stayed in the last time) and although slightly pricier, i think it's a much better choice than Sequoia! ;p It's less tired and feels more comfortable. Still couldn't bring myself to pay to stay @ Disneyland Hotel this time ;p But happy with my choice! Won't hesitate to stay here again.
This time round, Disney was markedly less crowded. Think it's probably low season and we arrived on a Wednesday, not a popular day i suppose. And i LIKE it! queues were short and we hardly queued more than 15 minutes for the rides. We get good views of the parades and shows and it was a short wait when it comes to taking shots with the characters. Really very happy that we didn't have to jostle with the crowds -- makes a difference!
Saturday was of course a crowded day -- but that was also our last day, so it was fine. The next time i plan a trip to Disney i shall remember to try to choose low seasons and weekdays :)
This trip, we did a lot more than our previous trip ! I had pretty low expectations about what we can do and we definitely exceeded it! heehee. Blogging them down for memory's sake :
Disneyland Park :
- Casey Jr - le Petit Train de cirque
- Le Pays des Contes de Fees
- Its a small world
- Alice's Labyrinth
- Peter Pan's Flight
- Le Carrousel De Lancelot
- Blanche Neige et les Sept Nains (Snow white)
- sleeping beauty castle
- Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast
- Aladdin's Passage
- Adventure Isle
Disney Studio :
- Cars Quatre Roues Rallye
- Crush's Coaster
- Art of Disney Animation
- Playhouse Disney live on stage
- Studio Tram Tour - Behind the Magic
and we managed to catch the parades for both parks as well as the Disney Dance Express and Mickey's Magical Celebration. We also caught the live Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show which was an interesting experience but not something i'm very impressed with ;p in fact, i was disappointed that there were no characters mingling with us diners :( would have preferred that!
