Disney Adventure - Day 2

And the Disney Adventure continues, this blog is going to be ALOT of pictures & not much else!... We decided that we REALLY wanted crepes and coffee on the Friday morning and thought it would be a great idea to go back to the shopping centre. WELL, it might be great for shopping but it is NOT great for crepes! We went to a few different places & they all said that they where closed (which is bizarre, as i always imagined crepes as a morning kind of dish?). Until we found a cute little restaurant/cafe inside called 'Paul's' the only downside is that they all spoke French and NO English they also acted like they hated us. The service was terrible and took ages to even get served or order anything! We ended up settling for Nutella Crepes because they couldn't understand lemon and sugar... & then told us they had no lemon? None the less, the crepes them self and the coffee was delicious! I could of eaten another.. but it was DISNEY TIME!

We popped on our ears and obviously had a quick mirror selfie.. and then we headed out!

Even though our hotel had a free shuttle, we wanted to walk to Disney and see how long it would actually take us just in case we missed the shuttle on the way back.. it literally took 10 minutes! We went in to the main Disney park and qued to exchange our e-tickets for real tickets.. this literally took ages! The park was completely decorated for the Halloween / harvest season! Including huge pumpkins shaped like mickey and Minnie.. it was AMAZIN.. this soon made up for waiting in the que for almost 30 minutes!

The parade started as soon as we walked through the gates, this was such great timing.. It was like they knew we had arrived! The parade was Autumn / Harvest themed as well, which really added to the atmosphere!

We then took the necessary selfies, that all girls have to take at Disney! 

We then decided to visit the dragon under the castle. This particular castle is based on Sleeping Beauty unlike the Magic Kingdom castle in America which is based on Cinderella. The castle features two parts! Underneath a dragon which breathes smoke and wiggles around in it's dungeon! And then a concrete balcony walk through area with sleeping beauty stained glass windows and tapestries! Which for some weird reason we didn't even go on!

We then mooched around went on some of our favourite rides which included the  haunted mansion and the pirates of the Caribbean. Whilst at the pirates of the Caribbean ride we decided to book in at the blue lagoon restaurant which is literally inside the ride. You eat and watch the boats go round! We booked and did a few more rides!

We then just happen to walk out the back of the Disney castle where are a few of the Disney villians where surrounding the maleficent thorns. Some of them where super creepy.. aka Gaston!

The second parade then started which had more popular and up to date characters such as Anna, Elsa, Rapunzel and Toy Story! It was really great although i thought it was supposed to be more of a night time thing.. but it was still light. The one in in Florida was done once it had got dark in the park and i think that added to the atmosphere really! By the time this was done, we went on a few more rides.. had some candy floss as big as our heads! And then made our way back to the pirates of the Caribbean ride for some food and wine!

We had booked for 8 and we were glad we did, it was quite busy! Inside the restuarant its decorated
 as if you where in the Caribbean eating on the shore! We both started with a cocktail & watched the boats go round..as you can tell below, i really enjoyed the Disney cup.. i wanted to take it with me!

 As we were feeling hungry and this seemed a better deal we both went for the 'Buccaneer Menu' which was 29.99 euros for 1 starter and 1 main course!

I had the Caribbean salad to start which was full of lettuce, avocado, pineapple, kidney beans, corn, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and mango vinaigrette! Which at first i enjoyed but i don't think the pineapple really went in there with it! It was a bit of a weird combination of foods, but nice none the less!
Then the Caribbean Chicken Colombo which was served with fragrant rice and roasted plantain, which i had never had before and was delicious, it kind of tasted like roasted bananas!

After a glass of red wine we then headed over  castle to watch the fireworks.. on our way i took this picture of the castle with the thorns lit up which looked incredible! 

 We got a pretty good place to the left of the castle.. The Fireworks show was amazing, not only did they have the fireworks and light projections they had water show with projections into the spraying water.. it went on for about 30 minutes! This is always my favourite bit of Disney!

Keep your eyes peeled for the day 3 ...
