Halloween California Adventure

We also headed over to California Adventure to check out the Halloween Time decorations over there.
Candy corn was the predominate theme- mmm, candy corn.
Only at Disneyland does Candy Corn grow on trees and bushes
Even the beverage cups here are cute with Mickey at a non scary looking Haunted House.
We went on the Tower of Terror as well as California Screamin' twice.
We also went on the new Toy Story ride. I thought that it was super fun since it incorporated several different kinds shooting games. I also liked the talking Mr. Potato Head while waiting for the ride.
We also went to these two experiences for the first time- the Mission Tortilla Factory and the Boudin Bakery.

It was incredible to see this huge tortilla press that would smush the balls into perfect round tortillas.
And the best part is that we got a FREE warm tortilla that we just watched being made. We also got free samples of sourdough bread before the Boudin tour. They had this great film about the process featuring Rosie O'Donnell. I learned more at this tour than visiting the original factory here in San Francisco. It takes 72 hours to produce one loaf of bread!!! WOW. And the same starter is still being used from the company's founding back in 1849. This cuts the dough into individual loaves- see that HUGE ball of dough at the top of the funnel.
And staying true to Disney style, the resting bread gets their own little ride around the bakery- this group was over our head.
And they even produce cute Mickey loaves.

Yup- the bread factory is INSIDE the California Adventure! I had no idea it was there until my annual pass holding sister showed it to me. You'll have to try it next time :-)
