Because we have a three day pass (shriek) Kezza was able to get in early before the seething hordes arrived. She was there with Hansel and Gretel at 6.45 am. I was not - I was allowed to sleep in and recover from day one.
I had a leisurely morning and prepared myself for the evening session. This involved listening to my iPod to try to get 'it's a small world' out of head. In the afternoon we went to the water park at the hotel and then to the big pool. We had lunch at Mimi's or some other place just like it. The children's meals include pancakes, mac and cheese and of course fries. It is the same as the breakfast menu. The Americans invented cornflakes but there is no sign of them here.
I am now suffering badly from coffee withdrawal symptoms and have started drinking the bottled Starbucks frappucinos from our little hotel shop. Yesterday I even had a cup of sludge from a big pot. There is a Starbucks at Disneyland but you would need a horse and a cattle prod to get near it.
The evening session was just like the day session but cooler. I did all the rides and have now been on the teacups twice. We saw the parade with Mickey and Minnie and Donald. I have not seen Huey, Dewey or Louie or even Scrooge McDuck. There is an extraordinary number of fairies and princesses. I am sure these are all pretty but it is hard to tell with the clobber and plastic hair they wear.
Gretel pegged out at about 9 pm so I took her back to the hotel. Kezza and Hanzel stayed for the fireworks and more rides. Today (day three) Kezza and the kids have gone for the morning session. I am rostered on for the evening. I think we have to do 'it's a smal world' again so I am going to need professional help to get the tune out of my brain.
