My Wife ran the half marathon this weekend and so we planned a whole mini vacation around it. At first we planned two days, the first arriving on Saturday and staying at the Travelodge International. Then moving over to the Disneyland Hotel for Sunday night. But as luck would have it, I got Friday off as well, so we booked the Paradise Pier( It was our first time there). We headed out of San Diego at about 6am so we could get there in time for Magic Morning. It was already 75 according the thermometer we saw on the freeway. Got to the Pier at 7:30 and our room was already ready. We got the park view as this was the only AP rate availble. We were glad we did cuz we had a great view.
View at 7:30 am
Then we headed out to the park. I love Magic Morning!!! It was one of the best memories I had as a kid and take every oppertunity I can to use it when we stay at the resort hotels. I think if there was an option on AP's I would buy it.
The people in front of us got turned away.
Almost empty Castle
We decided to hit up Fantasyland first and enjoyed the walk on lines.
A walk on!!!!
We made a wrong turn
You can do it Dumbo!!
Rode both sides
After a pretty much walk on to the subs, it still took 30 minutes to get on and ride, which ate the rest of our Magic morning time. After the Subs, we went on Space and Buzz which had no lines. Then it was starting to get warm so we made our way over to Splash. It had a really short wait.
Beautiful day from the top
I knew he'd get away
We had a flasher!!!!
Stoped in at the Mansion
Then ate lunch at the Billies
After lunch we decided to go on Midway Mania and then go back for some swimming.
On our way out we saw the band
My wife found a hidden Mickey and she was SO happy!!!
After a stroll through California and some Ice Cream, we found Mania closed for technical difficulties althought they were still letting people on the ride. A little confusing. So we headed back to the hotel.
Up next....Part 2
