60th Anniversary Trip, Pt. 9
After my short siesta back at the hotel, I returned to the treat of being able to see Soundsational, one of my favorite parades of all time at Disneyland. And I am really not a parade person!
I love the styling of the floats (great job Kevin & Jody!) as well as the musical arrangements.
I especially like the jazzy arrangements for the Aladdin and Little Mermaid sections.
Let's zoom in for a closeup of Ariel, shall we?
The Three Caballeros make an appearance in this parade as well.
Naturally Donald Duck is on TOP of the float above his two compadres.
The parade ends with a rowsing "Step in Time" arrangement from "Mary Poppins."
After catching the parade I headed over to the Riverbelle Terrace where I had made my Fantasmic! dinner reservations; the Blue Bayou was sold out. On the way I stopped to photograph the rushing waterfall at the Tarzan Treehouse:
The dinner destination!
A great view of the Treehouse from my table inside:
Light fixtures…I need a 12-step program.
Dinner started off with a garden salad:
followed by a seasoned chicken breast with vegetables:
and an apple dessert. All in all it was very tasty and the service at the Riverbelle was attentive.
My next destination was Mickey's Toontown. On the way, I noticed the Peter Pan Crocodile from Fantastmic! lurking in the Rivers of America:
I arrived in Toontown just as the sun was beginning to set.
The Mickey fountain looked beautiful with the setting sun behind it.
Oh how I wish the Jolly Trolley was unfettered and able to run again.
Last one today shows the Chip 'n Dale Treehouse:
More Toontown at night in my next installment!
