      Truly, an everything-went-right kind of day!

      We arrived at Disneyland on a late Saturday afternoon after a couple days in the hot car, having checked into Grand Californian, and decided to wander the park and see the sights, certain we would not get on to many rides, etc. What we found, instead, was that while the park was very crowded when we arrived (about 4:30 PM) the ride lines were very reasonable - 10 min for Star Tours, Matterhorn, etc.

      So we eventually decided to get some food, that having been the chief goal of our first night - see the sights and eat dinner. We really just kind of wandered into Rancho Del Zocalo by accident, but I had read about it in some of the guidebooks - we thought we'd give it a whirl.

      Now, we weren't exactly sure how we'd manage to meet all of our family's food demands - our youngest daughter (10) had expressed interest in having soup (!) for dinner, and we were getting her prepared to have soup some other time on our trip when we saw that RdZ has chicken tortilla soup! She totally loved it.

      Meanwhile, my oldest daughter (17) has a milk allergy of sorts, so she was hoping to get a burrito w/o cheese or sour cream. The staff said no problem, but then one staff asked the other if there's milk in the sauce they put over the burrito - and since they couldn't say for sure, they decided (without us asking) to whip up a special batch of the sauce on the spot to make sure there was no cheese or cream in it.

      The fellow out in the cafeteria portion of the restaurant was incredibly helpful and friendly - pretty much like everyone at the park during our entire five-day stay. But, this being our first day at the park, we were very pleasantly surprised.

      Overall, the food was better than I was expecting, the atmosphere was very nice, it was a nice, cool evening (low 70s), and they accommodated everything we could have asked for and then some. Total success!
