Looking forward to the rest

Day 1 Continued:

After Tower of Terror, we headed over to check out the new Little Mermaid ride.













It was a really cute little ride. But there was hardly ever a line. Every time we passed it, it was 5 minutes or less to get on.

I believe we did a ride on Screamin' after that, but we never got any pictures of it. Then we headed back over to DL to use our Star Tours fastpasses that we had picked up that morning.





Then we just did some wandering and did Autopia and another ride on Pirates before calling it a night.





We wanted to use our Magic Morning the next day, and that meant being out the door by 5:30 am!


Here we are on the tram on the way back to the car.

While we were in Disneyland, Seth was having fun at Manhattan Beach with Grandma!



Apparently he slept through most of it, so didn't see much.

Next post: Disneyland Day 2

I lied! We finished off day 1 with another ride on Space Mountain! Cause I remember we started and finished the first 2 days on it! Oops! Anyways....

Disneyland Day 2:


We started the day by getting out of bed by 4:45. Such an early day, but we really wanted to make use of our Magic Morning, so it had to be done. We were out the door by just after 5:30. There was a little bit of traffic, but luckily not much this day. I believe we got to the parkade just before 6:30.


Woohoo!



Not sure why, maybe the trams weren't going or something, can't remember, but we ended up walking to the gates from the parkade. I wasn't too happy about it, lol, I just wanted to get there!




Shoulda parked here!







First ride:

I shouldn't have worn white....

Next, we headed over to Fantasyland for a ride on Peter Pan and Pinocchio





Then we did a bit of wandering...




My man











We grabbed fastpasses for Indy, then went for a ride on the Jungle Cruise.










No line! I love Magic Mornings!

To be continued...

Day 2 continued:

Next, we went to Big Thunder where there was only a 5 minute wait to get on.









I was starving by this point, so we went over to the Bakery and got some breakfast.

Dillon got the cinnamon bun:


And I got a blueberry muffin:


Both were so fresh and tasty!

Then we wanted to head over for the rope drop at DCA cause we wanted to check out Toy Story Midway Mania as it was closed on our last trip.


Chip and Dale entertained us as we waited...


And this was our leader

They had the main path to the Pier walled off due to construction, so there were two separate ways to get there. Through Hollywood Blvd then Bugs Land, or Soarin' and GRR. Apparently we took the wrong way, cause by the time we got to TSMM, the line was 40 minutes long.

So we went on Screamin' instead:



Then we decided to head over to Soarin' and caught these guys on the way:











We did a ride on the Zephyr just for the fun of it, then got some yummy corn dogs for lunch before we headed back over to Disneyland.

I wanted to see Captain EO, so that is where we headed next





We were ready for a rest by this point, so we went over to the Refreshment Corner tables and bought a coke and just sat for a while. The parade was about to start, so we sat at tables as close to the street as we could get to watch. We weren't that big on seeing the parade, but we were sitting there, so we thought, why not? I got a few photos, but we didn't have the greatest view.

















To be continued...

Argh you got up so early!! I would have been tempted to park in DTD parking that early in the morning. The walk wouldn't be nearly as long. It seems that other than the line for Toy Story Mania there weren't that many long lines and that is wonderful!!

Loved day one!!! Day 2 looks great too.....so you're not into the parades?? I love them....it's a great way to take a little break & enjoy the music & characters. The park looked pretty empty....lucky you!! I have never been to TSMM when there wasn't a line at least 30 mins long.......in early March, the park was dead, we wandered down to the Pier & they were all in line for that ride......lol Its fun but really???? You would think by now those lines would start thinning a bit....but I guess not!

I had another post for day 2 all typed out earlier today, and then I accidentally closed the window. So I took a break. Hoping to get the next post done tonight.

I usually am into parades, just this one didn't seem that interesting to me. Maybe I just miss the Electrical Parade too much, lol.

The park was pretty empty on our Magic Morning, but that's about it! Lol. It was a pretty busy park the whole time, but not unbearable.

We did finally manage to get onto TSMM a couple times. We sucked it up and waited the 40 minutes both times, cause it was never any less than that!

You know I am not a major fan of the parades. I just cannot get into them at all.
