On our second morning in Disneyland, despite getting in later than the rest of our family did the night before, Danny and I were the first to rise. Everybody else wasn’t going to be ready for hours, so we ditched them and headed to Downtown Disney for breakfast at La Brea Bakery Express.
It was about 8:30 in the morning as we walked through the Esplanade. Disneyland had been open for a half hour, but Disney California Adventure wouldn’t be open until 10:00. Turnstiles open a while before the official rope drop, but we were still a little surprised to see people lining up at the gate to DCA so early. The next day, however, we would find ourselves among them.
