So, you have persuaded me that my plan to take 2 small children to Blue Bayou before Friday night fireworks is not a good plan.
It is going to be a real challenge to keep the kids up that late but their whole image of Disneyland stems from the fireworks so we really want to try to see them. My plan is now to have dinner in Downtown Disney - probably Rainforest Cafe - at around 7pm and then to head back into Disneyland which I believe puts us in front of the castle which is where we want to be. Does that work? The date is 9 May so fireworks should be around 9.30pm. The crowds are predicted to be fairly light so I don't think there is much risk that DL will be full when we try to re-enter.
