I guess when we went back for our nap I finally took a picture of the inside of our Candy Cane room. Then when we did go back to Disneyland we decided to stop into the Disneyana shop and look at the art work for a bit. I always see stuff I like. But I can't buy all of it as it is usually out of budget and I only have so much wall space!

A few more pictures of art in Disneyana, because of the Haunted Mansion's 50th anniversary a lot of the art was based on that which was fun.

And then we had a quick look at the Haunted Mansion history display but the Disneyland band was going to be starting soon so we rushed out for that.

I do have to backtrack for a moment. While we were having nap time at the Candy Cane I woke up about 15 minutes before our alarm so I was on my phone and I noticed that we somehow had 2 fastpasses for the Matterhorn, so weird. Then I decided to check the D23 Expo app because I saw a post that the panel reservations were finally linked to the app. I wanted to make sure our reservations had been linked properly. And just a quick reminder D23 Expo reservation rules for panels were 2 per day and they couldn't overlap times or be on the same stage. So I checked Friday's reservations and everything looked fine and I took screen shots so I had that and our paper print out as back up. Then I checked Saturday's and all was in order. Then came Sunday....and guess what I didn't have only 2 panels, somehow I had reservations for 4 panels for the day! WHAT?! Not a bad thing at all, 2 of the extra panels that we had reservations for were ones that came up with errors when we tried to book. So I guess Brad and Amy had some options for Sunday! So with an extra fast pass for Matterhorn and bonus panel reservations it was like we were just being given stuff, cool. Maybe we should've bought a lottery ticket!

Then we headed over to the Tiki room. We only had a few minutes to wait until the next show and it was a pretty full house. Brad stayed awake for the whole show this time, and as always it was a great show. The lady next to Brad wouldn't know though because she played games on her phone the whole time, she did dim the brightness on her phone though.

After the Tiki room we headed to DCA for awhile. I got the red card at Soarin'. I asked Brad to take a picture of me with it, and he just looked at me strange so I just took the picture below. He still doesn't get what an honor it is to get the red card @Tuvalu !

Then we headed over to Carsland to meet up with some friends. We watched the sunset lighting then met our friends for a bit at Flo's. I really don't know where we ate that night, no pictures and I didn't write it down. I know it wasn't Flo's. Oh well.

After some time with our friends we rode Racers and then headed back to Disneyland, Brad wanted to go on Smuggler's Run. We entered SWGE as the fireworks were going on and that was an interesting vantage point. We watched for a bit by the First Order shop and then by the Falcon. It was a little strange without the music.

A few more pictures of the fireworks.

When the fireworks were done we hightailed it over to the single rider line of Smuggler's before it got too swamped with the people that had been watching the fireworks. The single rider line didn't even take us 10 minutes. I ended up on the ride with a family of 4 (who didn't want to socialize) and a teenage boy. The boy was very nice and he was very talkative and nervous about riding. He hadn't ridden before and wanted me to tell him all about it and basically was my little shadow in the waiting area. He was sweet though and I had him sit at the checker board (or whatever they call the star wars game) and I took a picture with his phone. We both ended up as engineers and he had a blast! On the way out he excitedly talked about the ride and wished he had time to go on it again. It was fun being with someone that was so excited to go on the ride (besides Brad).

Somehow Brad got off the attraction before me, even though I was given my credentials before him. So we headed over to the Resistance area of the land and he took a picture of the fast pass redemption box at the entrance of what will be the Rise attraction.

And I took a few pictures of what we could see of the queue area.

And a bad photo in front of the entrance of the Rise queue

We headed out of the park then. B and I split up for a bit to do some shopping. We were to meet up in front of the Disneyanna shop, which I was not allowed to go into. So I guess I know I'm getting something from that store for Christmas! As I as was shopping on Main Street I could hear the Main Street Electrical parade starting and I did look out one of the shop windows for a bit as the first float passed by and when I exited the chain of shops I was able to see the Pete's Dragon float.

When the parade ended a few minutes later I found a bench in front of the Disneyana shop and waited for Brad. He hadn't finished his shopping as he had been detained by the parade and there was a line for checking out in the shop. That was fine, I didn't mind waiting and taking in some of the atmosphere. When he was done we headed back to the Candy Cane for the night. We would have one more parks day before Expo!

Then we went to the Haunted Mansion and these jars were for sale. It was just a decorative jar, no candle and some ridiculous price. I'm sure some people bought them, the design is cool but too much $$$ for me.

It was time for lunch at Cafe Orleans and we carbed out with the pommes frittes and the monte cristos. We shared them and it was plenty filling and tasty.

That Dan's 'tache is fantastic. I always stare in awe.

In the other hand.. I really need to try these fries and the montecristo.
