Wednesday Morning we woke up early & made sure that we got to Disneyland early. The sun was actually shining, which meant only 3 layers instead of 4.
Arriving early meant we got to be first to See TINKERBELL. That was such a thrill!
Being early we got to go on Matterhorn, Alice in Wonderland ride & many others.
We also got a ToonTown Morning Madness & see Minnie Mouse.
After hitting many rides at Toontown again, we headed over to Splash Mountain.
Jase & I took turns going on with the girls & the other person staying with the boys. We just walked right on. This is Jase’s Striking picture.
We went on many more rides that we found we loved at Disney & California Adventure.
On our way through the parking lot we saw this sign & felt it was perfect for
BIRTHDAY BOY SHAE!
We stayed late this evening to watch the parade & FIREWORKS.
THe kids loved the parade, we saw so many characters that we didn’t get a chance to meet. THey played Christmas Music & danced, it was awesome in the lights.
(Cinderella’s stepsisters were awesome with their bouncing behinds!)
It was so cold waiting for the FIREWORKS….so cold I cannot tell you. The kids were tired, but enjoyed the hot HOT chocolate!
The firework show was spectacular. I mean AMAZING. It was perfectly timed with the music/Christmas music. They had mickey mouse shaped fireworks.
And one cannot miss the beautiful lights on Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. When they lit it up it snowed. THe kids loved that.
The night ended great in the Christmas lights.
Our Last day at Disney was fun. We had already been on most of the rides in the whole park. We went on Small World First, Nemo Submarine next, Autopia after that…and then we hit some of our favorites: Buzz lightyear’s ride, Dumbo, & Carousel.
My most favorite character we met was meeting Mary Poppins & Burt.
Shae’s favorite was meeting Captain Hook!
As we left to go to California Adventure we listed to the Barbershop singers. And they sang Happy Birthday to Shae.
Over at California Adventure we hit Woody’s ride again & again…but we were so tired from many days of walking & walking we enjoyed many shows.
Playhouse Disney was so fun for the kids!
Our favorite was Alladin’s Musical…just like the show, so fun!
And one last ride before we leave Disney FUN….Monster’s INC.
GOODBYE Disneyland & on to Aunty Nikki’s house.
