Fresh off the heals of our Pirates of the Caribbean post yesterday, today I’m sharing with you our choice for day 92 in our Days til Disneyland series!  Dining at the Blue Bayou is on our list to enjoy when we are at the Park, and I can’t wait to see if it is as good as everyone tells me it is!  This restaurant, located inside the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, features “outdoor” seating where you will be able to see the boats of the ride float past you on their way towards Pirate waters!

I’m already thinking about what I’m going to order when we have lunch or dinner there.  On the one hand, the Jambalaya sounds really good, but so does the Surf and Turf (for dinner), and the Beef Strip Loin too!  So many choices, we’ll have to see which one I end up with!  As for Sophie, I already know what she’ll be eating — the Macaroni and Cheese. :)  Cindy will probably either get the beef strip loin or the Tesoro Island Chicken, but who knows?  If you want to see the menus, here they are for you to peruse!

So tell me your thoughts, please.  Have you eaten at the Blue Bayou?  If you have, what did you think of it?  Also, let me know what your favorite restaurant is at the Disneyland Resort (at any location)!

Thanks for stopping by, and we’ll talk with you tomorrow for Day 91 of our Days til Disneyland countdown!

Disneyland: Generating an attraction list

As you all know, next year our vacation plans are taking us to Disneyland instead of Walt Disney World!  This is a first for us, we have never been to Disneyland, so we are getting excited (except for Sophie, who doesn’t know we are going!)

In the weeks ahead, I thought I would take some time to write what my thoughts are going to be about some of the attractions, parades, shows, fireworks, and dining locations so that I can generate a baseline in my own mind about them.  Then, after we get back, I can compare that baseline with what we experienced on the trip to determine how close we were to our original thoughts!  For now, I’m going to make a list of the attractions that we want to try out at Disneyland.  This is in no particular order:

  • Disneyland Park
    • Adventureland
      • Enchanted Tiki Room

After a quick look, it’s obvious that I’ve got a lot of research to do, but it certainly is fun research!  Do you see anything missing from my list that I should add to the list, or do you see something on the list that you absolutely think I should totally eliminate from the list?  If so, please let me know in the comments!
