The One with Disneyland or Bust


Thursday, January 6, 2011

Chris didn't have school today cuz they're remodeling the lecture hall where class is supposed to be. What were we to do to pass the day? GO TO DISNEYLAND!
We parked on the roof of the parking tower and noticed the snow on the mountains.

It was soooo crowded! (Why??? Aren't kiddos supposed to be back in school? Or does everyone think that everyone is back in school so they all thought to come this week and maybe last week when it was supposed to be crowded it wasn't? The world may never know...)
Photobucket
It was so crowded that for the very first time we decided to walk to the park instead of taking the tram.
Photobucket
We definitely got to the park faster than had we waited for a tram.
Photobucket
And we enjoyed the scenery on the way.
Photobucket
Daddy and Fox at Disneyland together for the first time!

I can't ever go to Disneyland without taking a picture of my favorite quote about this magical place!
Photobucket
Love the posters passing under the bridge to get to Main Street.

Big horsey. I asked a "cast member" over at the petting zoo where they keep their horses and she said there's a five acre ranch behind Toon Town. Who knew?
Photobucket
Busy busy busy.
Photobucket
Our first ride was gonna be Indiana Jones, but it wasn't open yet, so instead we went on the Mark Twain Riverboat ride for the very first time.

It was really fun and we got to see parts of Disneyland we'd never seen before and view it from a different angle.
Photobucket
We have yet to go over to the Tom Sawyer island though. Maybe next time.

Fox enjoying being in his carseat on the boat.
Photobucket
Cool water ripples trailing behind the boat.
Photobucket
Real or fake? Real or fake? FAKE! But they look real.
Photobucket
Photobucket
I found my name!
Photobucket
Kind of a confusing message on the garbage can...
Photobucket
Who's that loner girl sitting all by herself sticking her tongue out?...
Photobucket
Whatever, I had a blast!
We met up with the Bybees and went on Pirates. Fox did great.
Photobucket
While we were waiting for the boys on Indy (cuz it opened) I took pics of flowers and entertained Fox and chatted with Erica.
Photobucket
Then Erica and I went on Indy - loooove that ride!
Photobucket
We ate lunch at the Rancho del Zocalo Mexican Restaurant and enjoyed the dangly lights.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Hi Blake, Erica, and Brooklyn! You're a super cute family!
Photobucket
Fox met his first character - Goofy! I don't think he really "got" it so I told him we'd try again in a couple years.
Photobucket
We ended the day with a trip through It's a Small World.
Photobucket
Fox was fascinated by all the lights and sounds and is definitely getting brainwashed to love all things Disney.
Fun day - hard to beat!

  2. You know what is weird? I had friends that went last week and it was almost empty?? Odd.

    Also, I love how you take so many photos at Disney. We go all the time and I never end up taking enough:)

  10. Hooray for a day at Disneyland!! I love that you still take photos... even though you've been there like 50 times. :-)

    I giggled at the end when you said, "brainwashed to love all things Disney." Holy Cow, that will be my kids! Jeremy will be so out-numbered by Disney fans in this house! ;-)

    And crazy it's so busy! Although... college isn't back in session yet, and I think some elementary/high schools have this week off too! It's weird how it's different all over the US... and then there are the foreigners! ;-)

    It should slow down next week. End of January and the month of February is when they do a majority of their refurbishments. SO many rides will be down then! And it's less crowded. :-D
