2019 Disneyland - Day 2

2019 Disneyland - Day 2I set the alarm for 6:40 am. We had hoped to be able to make a reservation for the Star Wars Cantina at 7 am, but this went awry. Apparently, you need to make reservations two weeks ahead of time...

We were up moving towards Disneyland by 7:40 am and into the park by 7:50 am. Although we could get into the park early because we were staying in one of the Disney hotels, it seems like most of the park was closed.

At 8 am, there was a stampede towards the new Star Wars ride.  The day ended up including:
  • Thunder Mountain;
  • walked to Galaxy Edge part of the park, only decided the line for Smugglers Run was way too long;
  • breakfast at the Mint Julep Bar {coffee, hot chocolate and beignets);
  • Hyperspace Mountain;
  • Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster;
  • Peter Pan;
  • Cars;
  • an adult beverage from Bayside Brews;
  • Soarin’ Over California;
  • lunch at the Wine Country Trattoria [Sharon and I: Tuscan salad with shrimp; Jack: Fettuccine Shrimp Alfredo];
  • Star Tours;
  • Davy Crockett Canoes;
  • Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run;
  • Jungle cruise;
  • Mr Todd's Wild Ride;
  • an adult beverage from Sonoma Terrace to take in the line for Guardians of the Galaxy (the app said that the line was 55 minutes, but by the time we got there it was 90 minutes so we bailed);
  • Grizzly Peak (Jack and I);
  • Jack and I walked around the Midway at California Adventure;
  • dinner at Catal in Downtown Disney [Sharon: Suckling Pig with Braised Tuscan Kale, Jicama and Grilled Pineapple Salad, Cilantro, Mole Poblano; Jack: Suckling Pig Paella with Chorizo de Bilbao, Shishito, Poblano Chile, Tomatillo, Cilantro, Bomba Rice; me: Traditional Paella with Mussels, Shrimp, Clams, Roasted Chicken, Chorizo de Bilbao, Saffron Bomba Rice, and Peas]
  • Hyperspace Mountain [pic1] [pic2];
  • Small World; and,
  • Splash Mountain (Sharon and Jack).

By the time, we got back to the room it was almost midnight. We all crashed.
