The title is no joke. We didn’t see one upset child all day. 90 minute waits for the most popular rides? No problem–every single 4, 5 and 6 year old just patiently waited. Hungry? We didn’t hear it. Tired and ready to go home? Impossible. We were genuinely impressed with how well behaved everyone (children and adults alike) was, how polite they seemed and how happy they appeared. It really felt like time travel back when there was still hope in the general public. I don’t know how you do it, Disneyland, but kudos.
We started last Saturday with some breakfast at home and headed south to Anaheim around 11. The awesome part is that it only takes us about 45 minutes to get there. After finding our parking space (in such an organized fashion), we made it to the gate and into the Disneyland park. You can’t help but smile when you hear the bands playing and see all the cute buildings and children having fun.
Brandon wanted to ride Star Tours, so we decided to go ahead and wait for an hour, ride the ride and then grab some lunch at Pizza Port. We trekked to Adventureland, sang along in the Tiki Room and set sail on a Jungle Cruise. After that, we wandered over to Mickey’s Toon Town and then ventured to Fantasyland.
A Mardi Gras parade marched through New Orleans Square as we waited in line for Pirates of the Caribbean Someone forgot to mention there was a sign that said we’d be going down a couple of waterfalls on this ride…
It was beginning to get dark and we knew we’d be coming back soon, so we decided to hop on over to the Disney California Adventure Park where we caught the end of another parade. It just happened to be the Toy Story part… I bet you can guess how big some of our smiles were. We wandered through Hollywood Land and rode the Monster’s Inc. A quick tour of Cars Land and a bug’s land left us ready to come back and visit again soon!
