Toni and I took my dad to Disneyland on Saturday for his 70th birthday. We got there a little before noon. It was a cloudy, but very pleasant day. It wasn't nearly as crowded as we expected for being the first weekend after the 50th Anniversary Celebration began on May 5th. I made reservations for lunch at the Blue Bayou Restaurant in New Orleans Square for 12:20 pm. The first thing we did after renting a locker, was to take my dad to City Hall to get his Happy Birthday sticker. When you wear your birthday sticker, the castmembers are extra nice and say happy birthday to you. Even other park guest tell you happy birthday. It's really quite nice.

It was the first time my dad had dined at the Blue Bayou, so it was special for him. The three of us shared two Monte Cristo sandwiches, one of their specialties. It's basically a double decker turkey, ham and cheese sandwich that's battered and fried. It's served with raspberry jam for dipping. If you haven't had it, it's kind of like having french toast. It's yummy, but I can only handle it once every several months because it's so decadent and rich.

We spent the rest of the day walking around Disneyland enjoying ourselves. We took in the new Walt Disney's Parade of Dreams and shopped. We went to Storytellers Cafe for dinner. After that, we rushed over to see the new Remember...Dreams Come True fireworks show, which was spectacular.

I think my dad really enjoyed his birthday, the first time he's spent it at Disneyland.
