    RHJ's 5-Day Girls Only Disneyland Trip!

    On June 17th, four girls embarked on a 5-day trip to the Happiest Place On Earth. Hardly any sleep was had, the room was not nearly big enough, we burned off half our body weight from walking, and yet I'd go back and do it all again. In the grand tradition of my trip report's I shall now start off with the trek across I-5 to bliss. Without further ado, here is my 5-day photo heavy trip report!

    Cast:
    Steph
    Jenny
    Julia- Me
    Raina


    I woke up with a start at 5:45 on Sunday in extreme anticipation for the vacation I had been anticipating for a year. I packed the rest of my belongings and we were on the road by 8 am.

    Steph is manning the wheel for the first stretch of our car ride.



    Jenny.


    I'm preparing for a glamorous road trip.


    Raina, there is nothing funny about this cramped 6 1/2 hour car ride.



    Not even close..




    Random dude at a rest stop stretching. It was an interesting sight to say the least.


    Smidges closer.




    Steph's down for the count.


    Raina's out too.


    We have FINALLY made it after a sticky and uncomfortable car ride! Bang the gongs, wake the neighbors we have arrived!


    After arriving at the hotel and throwing all of our things on the floor, we hit the pool and cooled off. After showering and prettying ourselves, we headed out to Trader Sam's for some booze and food.

    This look pretty much sums up our relationship.








    From left to right: Krakatoa Punch, Piranha Pool, Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Rum, & Lost Safari. They were all quite delicious. And no, they weren't all mine. What do you take me for??!




    Since Steph and Jenny had never experienced the mesmerizing, sugary intoxication that is beignets, I herded them over to Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen for some man-catchin' beignets!


    Prepare yourself Steph.


    Jenny seems to be enjoying her first bite.


    Eatin' beignets like a champ.


    And looking like an idiot while doing it.


    After our beignet indulgence, it was time to head back to the room to do, what else, but hop right back in the pool and relax.

    This is Steph keeping her "pimp hand strong". She likes to intimidate others with it.


    Moi.


    Water waltzing.




    Muah!


    Hot tub time.


    After realizing that we wanted some more to drink and finding out that our hotel only had their restaurant and bar open Thursday-Saturdays, we hopped soaking wet in some clothes and drove to a nearby liquor store and purchased some rum and cokes.


    This is what four girls staying in a single room looks like. Complete chaos.



    Stay tooned! Day 1 is just around the corner!

    Looks like a good time!

    Sidenote: How awful do the "Crows Landing" and "Firebaugh" areas sound? No offence is anyone is from there, the names just do not sound enticing.

    I'm sure had you gotten incredibly drunk, you would have been one of the gals in no time! Trader Sam's was wonderful. It's going to be our watering hole for future trips.

    None of us are from those places. We're all from the Bay Area. San Lorenzo to be specific.

    Day Numero Uno!

    We all woke up bright and early at 5:45 to make it for rope drop at 8.







    A totally empty New Orleans Square. A lovely sight to behold.


    JDHBAFNKDAIUYGFHEJADIUGHJN!




    Steph eagerly led the way to Haunted Mansion.






    Then it was on to Big Thunder, home of the fastest ride in the wilderness!








    After Big Thunder, we eagerly headed over to Star Tours where we walked right on. I was ecstatic to finally get tatooine!






    Then we hopped aboard another space carrier and soared through the darkest reaches of space.


    'Cause this is Thriller!


    Once we found our way back down to earth, we received word that our good friend Dr. Jones had been missing for quite some time inside a temple. Naturally, we raced over and entered the mysterious temple.

    Nice parking job, Indy.







    We successfully located Dr. Jones but he expressed interest in staying in the temple. Maybe if you guys see him you can convince him otherwise.


    So FUZZZZZYYYYYYYY!!!!!!


    First churros of the time.






    Wait hold on. It's WHAT time??!




















    After those photo ops, we walked over to the newly opened Carsland! We headed straight to RSR.


    Welcome to Radiator Spring Racers! Home of the 4-hour line in the beating sun!


    Nomming on some rock.






    Sunburn in progress.






















    We finally got to the front of the line after 4 hours!!






    We were all pretty drained from 4-hour wait so we decided to head back to Disneyland and wake ourselves up for a bit of splashy fun.




    Snoooooooze..


    I love a tall man.


    Corn dog time!


    After downing my corn dog, we went back to the room to freshen up and then headed back to the park.




    Go to hell!









    Fancy an elevator ride?


    Baby eaters!


    WOOHOO FOR FIXED ANIMATION!


    WOOHOO FOR FIXED HAIR!




    Radiator Springs is best enjoyed at night. Completely took my breath away.


















    Stay tooned for Day 2. Lunch at Club 33!

    I was actually listening to this song and viewing your piece at the same time. They just work together brillantly. Great trip report. Fun all around. Don't mind the words so much on the song, more so the beat.

    Day Numero Dos!

    It was much harder to get out of the bed the next day due to our aching and overused joints, so we made it a plan to sleep in until 9 to give us just enough time to shower, get our dresses on, and head over to Club 33 for our noon lunch reservation. It wasn't my first time at the Club but it was for all of my friends and being as giddy as we all were, it felt like my first time all over again.


    My brother and I.


    Me and my ladies.


    You lift the speaker box and press the button for them to buzz you in.


    Le menu.


    After our entrees and drinks were ordered, it was time to load up at the salad bar.




    My delicious (and powerful) lemon drop.


    As you can tell from both of their expressions, they were having a horrid time


    My Organic Free Range Chicken with Truffled Mac and Cheese.






    My aunt and my cousin Ashley joined us for lunch.


    After lunch, we all decided to take a field trip to the sacred Club 33 ladies restroom.








    The porcelain throne.


    Then we ventured out to the balcony to gloat, *aHERM* I mean, look out over NOS and enjoy the views from above.










    Family!




    Don't ask.


    Time for dessert!


    Glittery cupcakes.






    *COUGH* *CHOKE*




    After our most filling and expensive lunch, we headed back to the room once again to change in comfier clothes and hit the parks once again. It was a Grad Nite that night, so we hopped aboard the Disneyland Railroad and took the Grand Circle Tour before going over to DCA for the rest of the evening.


    Nice shirt, Steph










    Hey wait a minute! I know YOU!!


    Mr. Potato Head is a beautiful soprano.


    I ween! I weeen!!




    I had been eyeing Doc's Wild Grape Tonic over at Cone #5 at the Cozy Cone. It's essentially grape soda with a wild berry foam that tastes like melted sherbet floating on the top. The picture clearly does it no justice, but if you're a grape fanatic like me, your taste buds are gonna LOVE it! Guaranteed!




    My brother and his friend Brian came over and met us to ride RSR. It was only 3 hours in line this time and without the sun beating down on us so it was doable and a lot of fun with their added company.












    We were all excited to finally get Luigi's tires.




    Hardcore!








    I hope you're all enjoying the photos so far! Stay tooned for Day 3, ya'll!
