Most epic trip!
Had the most amazing Disneyland trip last week! Wish we could have stayed longer. Went with my girlfriend, my mom, her husband, my brother and his girlfriend.
Sunday night: My girlfriend was gonna stay up the whole night and sleep on the way there but she ended up going to sleep. I wanted to sleep but I couldn't, kept walking up every hour or so. Finally woke at about 4am, got ready and then headed out to the airport to meet up with everyone (around 5:30am). Flew from here (Tucson) to LAX, where we then took a shuttle to the car rental place to pick up the vehical. My brother ended up leaving his backpack on the shuttle but luckly the driver caught it and ran it to him. We were supposed to get this awesome SUV but my mom's husband was having a fit about it because my bro and his gf didn't have enough leg room or something. So then we were gonna get this GMC, which everyone liked but he was like 'no lets get this van, it has more room.' couldn't get that because the air pressure was too low so we ended up getting the GMC. Really nice vehicle. (I wanted to keep it )
Then headed to the Farmers Market and on the way past a resturant that they filmed Reserviour Dogs at, being a filmstudent and Tarantino fan I was all excited The farmers market was interesting, not really my kinda thing but my mom and her husband wanted to go to it. Had lunch there then walked around a bit more, we spent maybe an hour or two there then went to Disneyland!
Couldn't check into the hotel till after 4 (Tropicana INN, across the street from the park.) So we all went over to Disneyland and went on Indiana Jones, POTC and Haunted Mansion. Then me and my gf went to the shops and everyone else went on more rides. Met up at the hotel around 4:30 to check in. Our room had a lovely view of a wall, where as the other rooms had balconies!!
Then went over to Denny's for dinner, tried to figure out what baseball had to do with Disney. (They had all these Disney pictures on the walls and then this random picture of a baseball player) Back to the park for more rides! Then over to California Adventure. My gf was disapointed that the Tron event is only on weekends, she was looking forward to that. We were able to see some of World of Color from the back, while waiting in line for Toy Story Mainia. I think we all ended up going back to the hotel around 10 and going to bed.
The next day we were gonna go early because we had the early morning entry thing but ended up sleeping in till about 9. My gf went and got coffee and breakfast at the coffee shop on Mainstreet and I went over to townhall to get the anniversary pins (even though its not till next month, thought it would be fun to celebrate early!) Went on more rides! Then around 2pm we went to get food but the place I wanted to go was blocked off for construction so we cut through the Californian hotel, really nice place, and went to Tortilla Joes for lunch. The chips and salsa at that place are so good! After lunch went back to Disneyland and met up with one of her internet buddies whom lives in california. There was a short line for POTC so we went on that, come to findout the sound was broken My gf provided entertainment and dialoge for the ride. At first singing the pirate song, in which some guys in the back of the boat joined in. The women behind us were laughin, omg they couldn't stop laughing it was so amusing. Then my gf starts singing a Queen song and the women behind us join in. It was the most amusing thing ever. Got my gf to go on Tower of Terror even though she hates that ride.
3rd day we all went to San Diego to Phil's BBQ. They have really good veggie burgers! I recomend it, and the sauce is awesome! I wanted to bring some home. My gf ran out of money so we went to look for her bank and my map on my iphone told us there was one 7 miles away, got there and it was some abandoned building, really creepy
Then headed back to the hotel. My gf and I went and got a fastpass for the World of Color. That show is amazing!
I think we went on Indiana Jones 4 times and Thunder Mountain about 4 or 5. We mostly spent our time in Adventureland/Frontierland. Had a great time!
Then on Thursday we came back and our flight was delayed.
Too tired to remember anything else at the moment but had fun Wish we could have stayed longer.
Oh, and my gf said that they should have maps that show the location of all the penny smashing machines. She went around collecting a bunch of those.
Walt in the animation place
We wanted to go in here so bad
Phil's BBQ (I asked if we could get a fast pass for this)
Thought this was neat, it shows the handsignals for the train

I finally saw the eeyore sign in the Indiana Jones ride!
I was so excited about this. First time we went through my gf asked about it and the cm didn't have a flashlight so we decided to go again later that night and luckly that cm had one and showed it to us!
Still couldn't find the hidden mickey in the ride though.
Ok I think thats everything now.
