The Happiest Place on Earth
Yes, we went to Disneyland today. About a month ago, we received a card for a free visit to Dland. It was for a 1-day park hopper, but we have no desire to go to CA Adventure, so we just paid for the 2nd admission ($64!!) and went inside. It was crazy mad there. Go figure: gorgeous 80 degrees outside, Dland all decorated up for Halloween, fireworks, parades, etc., no wonder everyone on EARTH was there. I think the longest we waited for a ride was 45 minutes, so that's not so bad. The Haunted Mansion was the BEST! It was all done up in the Nightmare Before Christmas theme. Awesome! I love that movie, don't you? Jack Skellington everywhere. Pirates of the Caribbean was also revamped. They just added stuff to be like the movie, with Jack Sparrow character in there a few times. We did Space Mountain, too. It seems faster and more fun each time I ride it. We stayed for the parade at 7pm. We got our spot on the curb at the end of the Mickey & Walt statue facing straight down Main Street. Awesome spot. Tony told me that was the spot to have and by gosh, we got it. Of course we got there about 5:30 for the 7:00 parade, but hey, whatever. We ate our chocolate chip cookie sundae as we waited for the parade. Fabulous parade as usual. Disney is awesome.
