From there we drove down to Newport Beach to pick up Robert. Robert Plant that is. The real reason that we made the trip in the first place was for my sister to pick up a painting she bought. It's about 4'x4' and red and white.
We got to our hotel across the street from Disneyland around 10:30 or 11:00 on Friday night. Neither of us slept very well but were up and in the park at 8:15 on Saturday morning. We headed straight for Indiana Jones and only had to wait for 10 minutes! We pretty much stayed in Adventureland, and New Orleans Square for most of the morning. Adventureland is both of our favorites.
We of course tried on many hats....I would have loved to buy a classic one with my name on the back but really, what would I do with it once I got home....
Movin on over to Fantasyland, we went back and forth to Frontierland and Fantasyland a lot because we used the Fastpass a lot. It was great! We were able to do everything we wanted to because we utilized it.
Some of the longest lines we waited in were for the shortest rides! Snow White, Peter Pan and Mr. Toads Wild Ride are so cute!
It's an oldy but a goody, Star Tours is not the most technologically advanced ride but it's nostalgic.
The fireworks show was amazing! They were all timed to the music and they were each a different kind of firework that went with whatever was happening. Here are a couple videos of them.
This one was really cool! It was about the villains, they did this really cool thing when the soundtrack for the haunted mansion came on where all around us a bunch of bright fireworks sthot straight up in a circle so if felt like when the floor goes down at the beginning of the ride.
This one was the Pirates of the Carribbean, it was so cool, they mimicked a pirate fight with fireworks that made it feel like a battle was going on. The last bit of this clip is of the ones that were going over us like cannon fire.
Ok, it's taken me three days to piece this together and I think I'm done. All in all we had a great time! We were in the park from about 8:15 in the morning until around 11:15 at night. We got to do and see everything we wanted to and some twice! Em's favorite ride of the day was the teacups and I think my favorite ride was either the haunted mansion or Splash Mountain. I really loved the fireworks though too!
On Sunday we headed out and on our way back up highway 101 towards home. We stopped in a little town called Ojai (pronounced oh-hi) and walked around a bit. I wasn't really all that impressed with it. We stopped in Pismo again and had an early dinner at this great little hole in the wall seafood place. We walked on the beach and both got caught off guard when a couple waves came in too fast. The last leg of the trip was long but we made it!
