    Disneyland 2010 - "Happiest Dad on Earth" Trip Report

    Awesome trip!!!

    It was my daughter's first trip, my 33rd birthday, and my first real vacation in a long time.

    The Grand Californian was awesome (where's the adult-only hot tub?), Claire flipped for WOC and was belting out all the lyrics to the songs, she rode Pirates and she got to pilot the Mark Twain with 400 proud Gay Days sailors!

    Every time Claire met a character she couldn't help making this incredibly funny open-mouthed face.

    The great thing was the people. Aside from some rowdy drunks at WOC, there wasn't really one occurrence of the disappointments in society that so many MC threads have been started about.

    The food was great (dining plan however...) - we loved the heck out of many a CHICKEN SAMMACH!! at Whitewater Snacks.

    We had a great trip - the whole family is still in afterglow moving toward withdrawal.


    The pics are out of order but here's the Flickr set:

    WOW... Awesome pics!! And the best part of all.. was looking at your adorable daughters face in all of them.. it brought back so many memories of taking my boys to Disneyland for their first time .. or at least the first time they were AWARE and COULD REMEMBER and TAKE in the sights! I've been taking them since they were in diapers.. my oldest was 6 months old, youngest about a year his first. But at about your daughters age is the age of wonder and awe.. she sure is photogenic!! You have some beautiful memories there in your pics!!

    Thank you so much for sharing them.. =)

    Wow, excellent TR and pics! Made me grin like an idiot. Also these type of TR always make me wish I had kids.

    Two favorite pics are - your daughter grinning like crazy on the tea cups. Great shot. And this one:



    What's the story on the faerie in purple? I must admit I'm not up on the whole faeries thing with Disney currently. She has a great expression on, tho!

    Paul - Your daughter is adorable! I think my favorite shot is of she and your wife on Dumbo, although the one where she is pointing at that other little kid is a close runner up. Glad you had such a great time. Thanks for sharing these shots with us!

    That is Vidia. And she is... how shall I put it? The snobby one? Antagonistic one? Fastest flyer too. But with a heart of Gold as proof in the most recent fairy movie.
