last week, it was "long lost friends" - a chance to see characters that haven't been trotted out for pictures or autographs in awhile. they set aside an area way in the back in frontierland, tucked in behind big thunder mountain.
every half hour or so, they would switch the characters around.
there were so many people crowded around each station that we didn't get to see everyone. the bean was pretty satisfied with her visit with mulan and lilo & stitch, though. so we settled for pictures of the others.
of course, it wouldn't be disneyland without some special limited-time snacks.
the monte cristo bites didn't look particularly appetizing.
but this did:
i seriously can't get enough of the duckface.
and then we were over it. as we headed through fantasyland, we decided to squeeze into a monkey cage for a train ride. the bean loves to wave at her adoring public. well, they don't actually realize that they adore her. they're really rather unsuspecting for the most part. she doesn't have to know that, though.
the line at the newly-opened princess faire wasn't too long, so we decided to check it out.
someone needs to tell ariel that her big ass hair casts a shadow over her face.
the teen decided to try the boysen-apple freeze, served in this fun cup.
and then we gaped at this lady, who REALLY likes the "it" color of the moment, mint green.
