Complete with a few pictures when my hubby gets a chance to upload them!
I had actually written this entire thing earlier and then when I hit submit , everything I wrote disappeared!!!
Saturday the 6th:
We left Sedona at 1 pm and headed south and then west onto Hwy 10. We weren't really sure how to get to Anaheim from this direction and we hadn't thought to google the directions or get a map. We ended up taking 60 west to 91 west to 57 to the exit to the Hojos with only one little detour down 215 going south before realizing that was the wrong thing to do and stopping to get a map. We were starving when we got to Anaheim at 8 pm so we ate dinner at Mimi's Cafe before checking into our room. The food is great there but we always forget how big the servings are and end up with way too much .
Our room at the Hojos was very nice. We were on the fourth floor of building one facing the park. When the fireworks started , I went out on the balcony to watch and called Earkid on my cell phone to talk to her at the same time! She said it sounded like I was in a war zone!
After the fireworks , we rested a little while longer , went online for a little while and then went down to the jacuzzi! I love that the pool and jacuzzi are open till midnight at the Hojos.
Sunday the 7th:
We got up at 7 am sharp and got ready to go to the park. We made a quick stop at McDonald's for a cheap breakfast then were on our way! We met Pengy right inside the gate next to the Mickey Mouse flowers. She had a huge grin on her face but wasn't wearing a penguin shirt like I thought she would....I was so surprised!
We made our way down to the Matterhorn for our first ride of the day! We thought we were going to ride with Ken and Tiff in the front and me and Pengy in the back , but we discovered that both mine and Pengy's legs are way too long to ride together so I had to jump out at the last minute and catch the next bobsled. Pengy and my husband were both taking pictures of me at the end so I hammed it up for them!
We headed down to IASW next so Pengy and I could see the holiday decorations one last time before they took them down today. Ken and Tiff went to Toon Town and took some funny pictures including one of the Post Office sign right as it was falling off the building and onto the ground in front of them!
We went over to Thunder Mountain next but the line was way too long so we got fast passes for it. Then we decided to go on POTC instead. We were talking to a gal in line about Micechat and recruting her pretty heavily when a gal next to us in line asked if we were Micechatters . When we said "yes" she said "so am I." It was none other than cpdisneyprincess and her sister ! We gave them big hugs and then insisted that they go on the ride with us. The line was moving quickly so we got on right away and had a nice visit....quietly of course so as not to disturb the other guests on the boat!
