Disneyland Day Four

Today was a lloooooonnnnngggggggg day! We left our hotel shortly after 8:00 this morning, and it was after 10:30 tonight when we returned. Thankfully it was another absolutely gorgeous day, and it was jam packed with fun.

We started off the day with a fabulous breakfast with Mickey Mouse and his friends. As soon as we walked in the door of the restaurant, Mickey and Pluto both attacked Reagan with hugs and kisses. They really did make her feel like she was the most special child there... it was awesome!
Once all of the chaos settled down a little bit, Ryan and I joined in on the fun for some pictures. I even planted a big smooch right on Mickey's cheek when Ryan wasn't looking!
Reagan was excited to finally meet Daisy Duck, but she was a little hesitant about meeting Stitch at first. She finally warmed up to him by the end of breakfast!
After breakfast, we made our way back over to the Theme Parks. Today was the day we decided to tour the California Adventure Park, and Reagan stopped to have her picture taken inside of the "R" in CalifoRnia.
Once we were inside, we rode a few rides...
And we met some more friends...
Before we knew it, it was time for lunch! We enjoyed a yummy meal at the Taste Pilot's Grill, which is made to resemble an airplane hanger.
After lunch, we rushed over to the Hyperion Theatre where we had VIP seating for the Aladdin Musical production. It was amazing! The genie stole the show as he had us cracking up laughing the entire time. Reagan loved it and said that her favorite part was when Jasmine and Aladdin got married at the end.
After the show, Reagan wanted to get her face painted. Off we went to find the face painting artist, and she did a fabulous job. Reagan was so excited and oh so very proud of her butterfly face when the job was done. Reagan also insisted that Mommy have her face painted too, so of course I did!
We had time for one more show before the afternoon parade, so we decided to head over to the Playhouse Disney theater to see more of Mickey and his pals...
We ended our day at the California Adventure Park with the Pixar Play Parade, and Reagan danced on the street throughout the entire thing!
We had dinner reservations in the Downtown Disney District at the Rainforest Cafe, and it was a super fun dinner with FABULOUS food. The restaurant is designed to be a rain forest, and we sat through two thunderstorms with all of the parrots, elephants and monkeys while we ate. It may sound like a crazy dinner, but it was really lots of fun!
We finished off the night with the "Dreams Come True Fireworks Spectacular" in the Disneyland Park. Unfortunately my camera couldn't do the castle or the fireworks any justice, and I completely missed Tinkerbell as she flew over Sleeping Beauty's Castle. I was too busy watching Reagan grinning from ear to ear as she took it all in. I did manage to get a few shots...
Reagan fell asleep on Ryan's shoulder before we had even made it out of the park! That was fine by us because she needs every minute of sleep that she can get tonight because tomorrow is going to be the biggest day for her of our entire trip. We've got lots of special things planned for tomorrow since tomorrow is the big day... REAGAN'S FOURTH BIRTHDAY!!!!
