We started off the morning with a great cooked to order breakfast at The Plaza Suites. I love this hotel. It’s beautiful and it’s clean and the breakfast is amazing. They have these really good Vanilla Frappucino’s that I had this morning with my breakfast too. Look at all this food for the 4 of us and our kids did not choose anything off the cooked to order, they just pulled from the buffet. I had a vegetable omlet and Ryan had to eggs over easy with toast and bacon.
Now that we actually had our Platinum Passes in hand we got our free parking (yesterday ours was reimbursed after we proccessed our tickets) in the Premium Parking. Which basically means, MUCH CLOSER. Again we got in and ran towards the back and did all the rides before many people got to the back. Any times that there were lines we would wait maybe 10 minutes and that was only because we wanted to wait for the front row. Often times our kids would take any row and go and they would come back and get in line again and then go with us or just stay in there seats and go with again.
We began playing this game of “let’s see how many times we can go before they kick us off.” Once we made it 4 times without leaving our seats before someone finally got in line and we had to get out. Today we brought snacks again and kept filling up a water bottle.
GREAT TIP: Outback Shack had water spouts on the Coke machines, so we filled up our bottles there and the water was ice cold.
We left the park again by 2pm and went and got something good to eat. Today we went to Sonoma Chicken Coop. I had discovered this place last week when I was here visiting with my mom. The kids loved it and so did Ryan. We sat outside in the beautiful weather. Ryan’s Carne Asada Verde was amazing, Jenna’s Chicken Fettucine was great, Cody really enjoyed his pizza, and I was satisfied with my Walnut chicken salad. I would not order it again, but it was their most popular salad. I guess I am not sure why. Really nothing special about it.
We went back to our motel and laid out by the pool. We had a bit more free time as the park was open later tonight.
We did make it back to the park and got in a few more rides, even some in the sunset light. It was so fun.
By the end of the day we figured we had done just over 20 rides.
