7am rope drop at Disneyland (you can tell which is our favourite park?) and we headed straight to enrol for Jedi training, if you want to do this, do it the minute you get in, spaces fill up.
From the website:

Availability is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Then off to do some rides before our 10.30 Surfs Up with Mickey breakfast. We rode
Alice In Wonderland (this was our longest wait at 25 minutes, but it never came down below this the whole trip)
It’s a Small World
We took to monorail to Paradise Pier Hotel for the Surfs Up with Mickey brunch, mostly because my son is obsessed with Stitch. The food was fine and the characters were too, it was Mickey, Minnie, Stitch and Daisy. Taking a minute to check out that hotel and the Disneyland Hotel, and that end of downtown Disney.
We returned to the park on the monorail for the Jedi training, this was fun, they loved it! The kids get to train and then fight Darth Vader or Kylo Ren, review here
Back to Disneyland to the Tiki Room, Poohs Adventure, a Woody root beer float from the golden horseshoe
and then I remembered that I wanted to get the kids silhouettes done on Main Street. We had Bonnie, she was awesome, fast, and we watched Pixar Play parade through the window. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCW4WvWfphY
$10 per silhouette
$20 per frame, the frames are beautiful with over 20 hidden mickeys.
4.45 reservation at Blue Bayou for the Fantasmic! Package. We showed up a little early and they could seat us immediately but I asked if we could wait for waterside seating, they said it would be 20 minutes, no problem. 5 minutes later we were seated. The chef came out to make sure our food needs were met, and while I wouldn’t usually pay that much for a simple meal (it was $241 for the four of us – 3 course meal), the food was good and it more than made up for the price to have a cushion and priority seating for Fantasmic. Looking at all of the people sanding for hours before it started, by this stage I was tired and pleased to be seated.
Fantasmic came around, we lined up, sat down and waited, the show was phenomenal. I don’t want to spoil it, but see it, really. It was my highlight of the week, my husbands too.
