I’m trying really hard to finish this trip report….seriously.
Day five was our Disneyland day. We got up early and headed out to Disneyland, which was literally about 2 blocks down the street. After parking in the lot and taking the tram, we had arrived to Disneyland California Adventure!
We’ve been to Walt Disney World at least 8 times in the last 12 years but we’ve only been to Disneyland once and that’s when the kids were very young. The California Adventure park was a first for us. First things first…our favorite ride:
There was no line. Then we hopped on the California Screamin’ rollercoaster. It was a lot of fun. I wanted to video the whole ride but as soon as our car took off up the hill, my camera stopped! Here’s a few shots of it:
And this should give you an idea of how fun it was:
We saw the parade:
And caught the end of Goofy’s fountain show:
And rode the Monster’s Inc Ride. Disney is quite clever with their attention to detail:
We walked through Cars Land:
We took a mid-afternoon break to register for VidCon. The convention center was only a few blocks down the street so we trekked it down there and picked up our passes.
After we got back to Disneyland we rode Mickey’s Fun Wheel. This is the big ferris wheel you see in all of the pictures. From a glance it looks tame. But we decided to sit in one of the swinging gondolas vs. one of the stationary ones. How bad could it be? Or so we thought….
After recovering from that horror…we went on another vomit-inducing ride – The Golden Zephyr **warning, don’t watch if you get dizzy easily!**
It was getting more crowded as the evening went on so we decided to call it a day early and went back to the hotel to rest up for the VidCon madness to come!
