I have stayed at the two other Disney hotels on the property, but never the Paradise Pier, which is where Lori and I stayed this time:
It was nice:
We've never gotten anything to eat there. Maybe some day..
I may be mistaken, but I THINK it's the Disneyland Rose - yes, there really is one!
Mater's Junkyard Jamboree; thanks for the ride, buddy!
Behind him, you can see the Carthay Circle Restaurant:
This is a vintage Dumbo memorabilia display inside the Carthay Lounge:
We did the World Of Color Dining Package, which means that you choose your courses from a specific menu , and then you are given a pass that allows you entry into a preferred viewing area for showtime. (NOT preferred seating. Standing only.)
The only thing I remembered to take a picture of that evening was the dessert.
I think this was called the Valrhona Milk Chocolate Creme Brulee Tart With Fresh Raspberries:
What a pretty little dessert!
It was a delectable ending to our meal.
And then later that evening we saw the fabulous World Of Color show along Paradise Bay.
I did not actually get very many souvenirs this time, but one thing I DID want was a little Fillmore toy vehicle - because he's a Volkswagen, and because he has hippie-style graffiti all over him.
And what better pin to go with him than a groovy chartreuse Mickey Mouse peace sign?
My daughter-in-law was celebrating her recent graduation with her Master's degree in nursing, so she got an "I Graduated" button, and Matt and I got "I'm Celebrating" buttons to wear that day at the parks.
And I decided I needed another magnet, because I just thought this one for "Poppins' Penguins Catering Co." would look awfully cute on our refrigerator:
It IS, after all, My Happiest Place.
