I didn't mean you were unorganized, just the SDL system.
Looking forward to more!
Mine is under 'One Day at Shanghai Disney'. Don't ask me to link it- I'm useless at that, but go through my server name and find it there.
We just used the hard ticket we were given at TSH. It was just like the keycard, so DH locked them in the safe the day before we went so we wouldn't try to use them as door keys! Maybe they're paper tickets at the gate?
Hmm... we weren't given hard tickets at the hotel. Just our room keys which we were told would double as our park tickets. They worked fine to get us into the park at least. If I ever went back I'd definitely make sure I had a ticket that would work to get me fast passes!
I think they are still working out the kinks in their system there. We were definitely not very organized either though!
I keep forgetting how to do the link, too. Google isvyourvfriend!
I would, yes. The SDL hotel is wonderful and much less expensive than the deluxe hotels at WDW! The Toy Story Hotel is very cute and vibrantly themed, but it is more on par with the value hotels at WDW.
Wow, I don't know how an entire month has gone by since my last update, sorry about that!
The next morning, we packed up all of our bags and headed down to the lobby to check out and store our luggage. The staff here was so nice and I got a friendly smile and wave as I took a photo after checking out.
Next, we headed over to the Ballet Cafe to grab some quick items for breakfast. This was a really cutely themed quick service cafe.
However, I was still dreaming of Lumiere's and asked Kelly if she would mind checking it out to see if we could get in for the breakfast buffet. She quickly agreed so we headed downstairs for one last sit down meal in China!
I LOVE Beauty and the Beast, so I was pretty much in heaven here!
more pics in next post...
So much food - yum!!
The restaurant was not busy at all, so we had no wait to get in and Goofy was there to greet us before we took our first bites!
You may notice I'm wearing the same shirt as the day before... let's just say that after two weeks in China, I had run out of new clothes to wear!
After our pic with Goofy, it was time to tackle the baked goods table - holy moly!! Many of these pastries were ones we'd seen at Remy's bakery. There was no way we could try everything, but everything looked so beautiful and tasty!
I ended up with just one pastry, a muffin, some fruit (love the watermelon and dragon fruit in China), a thin pancake thing (can't remember what it was called but it was really good) and some teriyaki chicken.
Wow! This breakfast was seriously the highlight of SDL for me!
Stay tuned for some shopping at Disney Town in the next update!
I found your TR yesterday and have really enjoyed reading all about your trip! I would love to get out to see the Disney parks in Asia someday but it will most likely not happen anytime soon. Looking forward to the rest!
Oh what a cute restaurant!! Love Beauty and the Beast too (so excited to see the live action movie!)
Those pastries look so yummy, you showed great restraint
I 'recycle' clothes on holiday, too. I'm not there to do washing!! I try to mix my upper and lower clothes so it doesn't look like I've worn the same ones the whole time. Hang them up for an airing and wear again 4 or 5 days later. If someone was rude enough to point it out, I'd just tell them pfffffft!! Get a life!
LOVE the Disney character portraits behind the reception
I would too. Glad you got the chance to check it out. LOVE LOVE LOVE the theming (after all Lumiere is one of my favorites and Be Our Guest is my fave Disney song). Looks like a great selection of food as well
I love your trip report. The mosaics are gorgeous. The buildings all look beautiful. It's too bad that the lines were so long. All of the people must have been in the lines because so many places you visited, like Gaston's, looked almost empty.
Thanks!! I would also love to visit the other parks - too bad the lottery gods aren't cooperating!
The restaurant and pastries were all so beautiful! I wish I could have eaten more pastries but I don't think that would have been wise - can we say sugar high!
I just figured by the end that Kelly was the only one who would even know I'd worn the same thing the day before and she was in the same situation!
Yes, the artwork throughout this park and the resorts was really the highlight for me! And the music they played in Lumiere's was just perfect! I LOVED that restaurant so much!
Thank you!! Yeah, the long lines were the only bummer but it did seem that that's where everyone was so it made for some really nice and empty restaurants and pathways!
Hi welcome back! Thanks for posting. It is fun to see the different styles of restaurants in other Disney parks in
Wow the details are Amazing! I can't believe how well everything is themed and detailed. You are so lucky you got to see this in persson because the pictures are amazing,must have been even better Thanks for posting this.
I love your report!
I know, the restaurants we went to were so nicely themed! Now I'm wishing we had the extra time to try some of the other ones there!
They really were! They did a great job with this park! I would love to go back someday, and I also really want to go to the other international parks now!
Thank you! I will try to finish it up this Saturday - high of 10 forecast with snow so I should have plenty of time to work on adding the last photos! lol
Love all your pics - we will be visiting i early 2018 so I love seeing all the pics
