Disneyland: Day 3

Back at Disneyland for Day 3! (Day 1, Day 2)

Up early for breakfast by the pool:
Walking to the park. The pants are gone :(
I love walking on the bumps!
I arrived just as Disneyland opened at 8 a.m.
Straight to Space Mountain:
Bought a new sweatshirt with my 20% off coupon and leftover gift card!
Went backstage to help the band get ready for their sit-down concert in California Adventure. NO pics allowed. Bummer.
They sounded really nice! One more performance tomorrow: the parade.
Returned to California Adventure with Dad:
California Screamin'
Single rider is the way to go.
"Look at this picture! Neither of us look stupid!!" ;) A bunch of THS band kids getting ready to scream:
Cold and cloudy most of the day (it's raining as I'm tying this):
Dad, you are not getting that hat! (it flashed, too)
Art deco potty stop:
The sun came out briefly, and it was time:
Soarin' Over California:
Next, Dad and I went to Bugs Land and rode some kiddy rides. Heimlich's Chew Chew Train:
Flik's Flyers:
And Tuck and Roll's Drive 'em Buggies:
I laughed so hard when Dad got pinned between a couple kids who had no idea what they were doing. Then I went all the way around and hit him from behind :)
Bug's bathroom:Parade:
Tower of Terror:
I kinda like these:
Dad and I had four Fast Passes for the evening so we went twice in a row:
Such a good ride!
I grabbed some Subway for dinner and now I'm ready for my Race with a View in the morning.
Must sleep now :)

Disneyland: Day 2

Day 2 started with some breakfast at the hotel and a performance in Disneyland by the Jazz Band. (Day 1)
They did great - especially the last song :)
King Aurthur Carrousel:
Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. I love how you die and go to Hell at the end.
Had to get the Mickey Mouse pancake. Unfortunately, it wasn't as tasty as it was cute.
I love how all the bathrooms are totally themed like their surroundings. Seriously... it's those little details that makes Disneyland so magical!
Mark Twain:
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad:
Astro Blasters - Mom's fav:
Jungle Cruise:
Matching Chacos! Dad needs toenail polish...
My turn to man the student check in:
Parade time:
Baby ducks receiving an escort across the park:
Some unattended bags that security was checking out. They asked me to delete this picture from my camera. I don't think so.
Mike & Sulley to the Rescue:
New shades for Mom??
Caprese sandwich, grilled cheese and tomato-basil soup to share with Mom. Excellent!
Another potty stop:
We staked out spots and watched Fantasmic with 30+ students. It was SUCH a great show - one of my favorite parts of Disneyland :)
Time to sleep... another big day tomorrow :)
