The One with Setting up for the Pirates Premiere at Disneyland


Thursday, May 5, 2011

I've always wondered how much it would cost to rent out Disneyland for a day. Thousands? Millions? Billions? Trillions? I was looking up the park hours a few weeks ago and saw this:

Did somebody really buy out Disneyland for an evening!?!?

I found out the answer yesterday morning when we went to Disneyland for a few hours. Cuz all work and no play makes Paige a dull girl :)

Disney bought out Disney! For why? For a special premiere of the new Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides!

How did we find this out? As we turned the corner to head to the Pirates ride we were stopped in our tracks by the amazing transformation that's taking place:

The signs helped out too.

I asked a cast member about it and apparently tickets cost $1000 each and the money is being donated to charity. That's super nice.

All decked out for Pirates!

I seriously thought this was Johnny Depp for a second!

They're TWINS!

Wish we could go to the premiere! That would be twice in a lifetime opportunity! I say twice because once upon a time I went to the premiere of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in London:

Where I saw Johnny Depp with mine own two eyes.

But who wouldn't want to see him again?

Anyways, we had a fun morning at Disneyland!

We went on a ride we'd never been on with Fox before - Astro Blasters.

Two things to note in this final picture: 1. Cute Mr. Fox is too short to even see over the dash. Precious. 2. Look who has the higher score. That would be mwah.

Our 4th anniversary is on Sunday, so is my very first genuine Mother's Day, and to celebrate we're going to go to Disneyland on Tuesday, just the two of us, from dawn til dusk!
