I'm embarrassed to say that it's been a month now since we got back but better late than never I guess.
We flew into LAX on Oct 25th to smoke filled skies
After waiting at least 45 min the Disney Express showed up and after stopping at DLH and countless others, we finally arrived at Howard Johnsons. I think next time we will rent a car, we weren't impressed with this service at all.
After settling in as quickly as possible, all 13 (yes 13) of us headed to the park!!
I always love the first look at the train station!
My daughter aka princess, can't believe we are finally here!
Now going with 13 people, you have to be ready to go with the flow (or take off on your own). I always ride the train first. No one else wanted to. So we settled on:
I hadn't been on the DLR version since the movie add ons and really enjoyed it. So much better than WDW's, which we saw last year.
After Pirates we were hungry so we went over to the French Market for dinner. The line was painfully slow but the food was delicious! Princess sadly started feeling really ill so I waited at the exit of Indiana Jones for everyone else. My wonderful husband who isn't nearly the disney fan as I would like him to be, offered to take her back to the hotel so I could stay longer. By the time we got everything settled, our group had gone their own ways so I had some glorious time to walk around all by me onsie and do whatever I wanted!! So I took some pictures:
Seeing how these night shots turned out, I'm convinced I need to save up for a good digital SLR!
I did manage to find half of the group and after a churro stop or two, we headed back to the hotel for the night. Princess threw up in front of McDonalds on the way back (sadly this wouldn't be the only time someone was ill this trip) but she was feeling better by the time I got back.
Day 2 to follow!
