A short time ago, in a magical place somewhat far away (for us)...
so on our way to the HOJO, the fireworks were going off as we were on the freeway, and yeah, pretty darn cool.
we check into the hotel, my brother goes to the computer to check the UCLA and Dodgers scores, but apparently we took too long cause our parents drove off to find a parking spot without us! so we're chasing down the van all the way across the parking lot to the other side of the hotel! then we get a spot, get to our hotel room, and the first thing i had to do was look at the view! cause we got "stuck with" a park view room.
just remember, my camera sucks.
then i went to sleepy sleep with my stuffed pooh bear.
then i wake up in the morning, not feeling like P. Diddy at all. cause 5:30am is too early for P. Diddy. but it's early enough for the sun!
oh i love to watch the sun rise, especially on Disneyland.
then we head to the check in, then walked to the Bakery, and ate breakfast (well not so much for me) and we're off!!
so we headed to Indy to get a fastpass and then went for the Jungle Cruise, i thought it was cool to say we were the first one to ride a ride of the day!
after that we headed to PotC, and then the Haunted Mansion!
well during the ride, there was some technical difficulties, and we got stopped a couple of times, and when we got off, one of the cast members was searching for something underneath the doom buggies, that's all i know.
and then we headed over to splash mountain to get a fastpass and then went on Winnie the Pooh!
funny, my first sight of the RoA construction and it's almost done.
woohooo!! i'm not the only one that likes Winnie the Pooh!!
Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh, tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff he's Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh, willy nilly silly ol' bear.
STOP! PHOTO TIME!
so then we headed back to Indy, and i'm just gonna say, i sooooo knew the answer to the question before we rode the ride! but it's my favorite so obviously we were still gonna ride it, and my brother got to be driver! he said since he can't drive he should be the driver. i said
i ask him how was it being driver. he gave me that.
so since Splash was down, we got screwed by that, so we walked to frontierland and did the shooting gallery, boy we did not think we actually had to play. luckily i had a few quarters.
then we still didn't know what to do, and i remember those personalized leather bracelets they had were right there, and my bro loved his, but lost his, so i bought him another one (cause he left his money from our grandma in the car).
my attempts to the art of photography.
so instead of taking the train to tomorrowland, we walked to fantasyland and started with Peter Pan first, cause that ride is too awesome to have a short line.
and i got bored in line.
after Peter Pan it was time for Mr. Toad. personally, i think that ride (and Pinocchio) are rather trippy. and short. short and trippy. trippy and short. but i have yet to attempt the goat trick (shout out to goat trick rodeo all stars!!)
speaking of Pinocchio, we rode that afterwards. and now i wonder so much why we did not do snow white, it was right there! oh well.
we then had a churro and and sprite and churro and water stop.
another attempt at artistic photography.
with my dad's dizziness sickness, we split tea cups so me and my bro could spin and my parents just sit there. surprisingly, we weren't as dizzy as the last time we rode it.
then we walked (i'm surprised how much walking we actually did) to tomorrowland to get a fastpass for space mountain, while still having a splash fast pass (we get a loooot of fastpasses) and the it was time for captain EO!! but while waiting in line, i lost my camera! so after searching my purse for like a good 3 minutes, my bro sticks in hand it there, and pulls it out like a magician. then my dad jokes that if you wanted to hide something, put it in a women's purse. you can see where the humor comes from.
btw, captain EO, awesome, and kinda funny to think that's how the 80's were like.
then it was STAR TOURS TIME!!
so i'm still gonna keep thinking this is my last time i'll see the original star tours so i must take pictures of my 3 favorite people!
and last but not least....
Crazy Hair Lady!!
so then a stop to starcade, BLAB (my brother destroyed me, i couldn't not accept defeat) and innoventions (my mom was looking for the future dream bed while we were looking for the future dream kitchen) we had 10 minutes til we can get our 3rd fastpass at one time! so i got a frozen lemonade (from the machine, not the cup) and we sat and waited. and waited. and.......waited a wee longer, then fastpass time! autopia! then we went on the tram.
more attempts to be artistic.
so we take the train to NOS to FINALLY use our splash mountain fastpass!! (our fastpass was scheduled for 9:40, we got there at 1:40 thank you for breaking down)
and i gotta go get my brother from track practice and get him ready for his baseball game! dang time flew by!
