So, I started this yesterday and was almost done (all in one post - I know - silly me) when mozilla crashed on me. So I am attempting this again in multiple posts.
My dad is currently deployed until mid-July (or even September possibly) so it's been me and my mom for awhile now, and with everything that has been going on lately we decided that we needed a vacation, we needed to get away, and where better to get away to than Disneyland!!!
We made a stop off in Sacramento for a few days visiting friends, seeing old hangouts, etc.
My mom's best friend had never been to Disneyland so she came with us, and my best friend had also never been to Disneyland even though she now lives about 1 1/2 hours away from the park and I hadn't seen her in 5 years. (she was only able to stay 1 day L )
We left for OC on the 7th and just hung out at the hotel and walked down to the Garden Walk that evening for dinner (very nice place, even more so at night, and only 10-15 minute walk from the hotel).
So, on the morning of the 8th, we got up very early as we wanted to get there before the park opened. Our first stop (besides a photo in front of the Castle) was Fantasyland, where we took a trip with Peter Pan over the skies of London.
After that, we decided to walk around and head over to Pirates, as my mom had not been on the re-vamped version yet (her last DL trip was 9 years ago), and it was enjoyed by all. Next up was Splash, and the nice daughter that I am, I told my mom and her friend that they needed to sit in the front because that is where you get the least wet and a better view. Well, they got soaked, head to toe. Oops….lol
So, as they dried off by going on the tea cups, my friend and I headed down Main Street on our way to California Adventure to get a Screamin Fast Pass and we ran into these two great people:

We decided to walk around a bit and see the Animation Studio:

And our first big stopping point was
Hmmm...he's cute..I wonder how I can steal him away from Belle....
I took the quiz and ended up as:
