Of course, this had to be the night... allow me to vent my frustration for a second.
My elderly (75) mother just LOVES fireworks. Everytime I see the "Remember..." show, I keep thinking how much she's love this one.
So, I brought her, and she shared lots of memories from Disneyland. Her first visit was in 1957, when Disneyland was surrounded by Orange Groves, and there was a dirt road to get to the parking lot.
For a while, 1971 or so to 1986 or so, we would go annually, since we lived in the city next door growing up. But she hadn't been back for 20 years.
She really enjoyed the parade, and was so happy to see that they've kept Disneyland looking so great, and so "clean", as she put it. She was fascinated by the landscaping and the flowers everywhere - things I barely notice in my rush to get to rides.
So that part was great. Then we got a great park bench, right in front of the castle at the hub, with a view of the matterhorn, two hours before the show ... and waited. Ate dinner...and waited.
When the announcements came on that the show might be cancelled due to high altitude winds, I said "don't worry -- I've heard this two times before, and those two times they did go through with the show".
9:25, our big moment, what we'd waited all day for ... and "I'm sorry, but the "Remember, Dreams do come true" fireworks show has been cancelled."
Auugh! Now I have to buy another ticket to get her in to see it later this year before it ends, with the crowds that come along with that.
Overall, a nice day, but the cancellation really bummed all of us out.
She was really hafter I had brought my 75 year old mother to the park (she visited in 1957, but hadn't been back for 20 years), just to see the fireworks. Auugh!
