On our first day we traveled to Dl by car.
Checked into the DLhotel and made our way into the park, we were looking for the dumbo popcorn buckets, in the past we have
been skunked when we tried to find something special so we wanted to make sure we at least found the Popcorn buckets. After a little searching we we fond the dumbo buckets. They have only a few places that are selling them so you have to ask where they are. Picked up the Photopass plus and took some photos of the card, that way we could recover the photos if we lost it.

Got up and after several trips got everything in the car, I was amazed that I was able to get everything in. We came down with a lot of stuff and went back with a lot more.
The drive went well but it seemed like it took longer going home, it did not but what do you expect when you are leaving Disneyland.
Had a great trip even though some of us were not feeling the best.
The granddaughter now looks at the photos and starts to laugh, the other day she grabbed her suitcase after looking at some of the photos and she wanted to go back. She might be young but she loves Disneyland.
