Well, so far there have been some great trip reports so I thought I would join.
Why you ask!
CUZ I LIKE TO TALK A LOT THAT'S WHY!!!!
Sorry, substitute teacher here, I have some aggression issues.
So, Maddie and I decided to wake up early the morning after GBR2 (Gumball Rally 2). Well, it was more Maddie's decision than mine.
So we were about to leave Nana and Clark's house (Dad has not picked a Grandpa name yet, so we just call him Clark). When they decided to go to breakfast. I've learned to never pass on free food, especially since the day before I was living off of Beef Jerky and Snickers.
So we went to a breakfast that seems to last for ever, since my dad had to go to the bathroom 10 times (darn Prostate).
Finally, we were on our way to DL!!!! Yea!!! Mind you, Maddie and I went to DL on Friday since her first trip was a complete disaster (see my other trip report for details).
So driving like a total maniac, I make it to DL exit at 11:30. Cool 1 hour before the "Partners" meet. Totally going to make it right????
Missed the tram, crap
Time check: 12:00
I forgot that had lost my AP sometime during the rally, crap, need to go to the ticket booth.
I want to know what people can be doing so long at the ticket booth, how long does it say 2 adults and 3 kids, FOR THE LOVE!!!!!!
Time check: 12:14
A cast member was on the phone "what could they be discussing!!!!! For the love hurry!!!!" Why oh why did I lose my AP!!!!!!
next guest in line,
almost next, this should go fast there are only 2 of them. Nope, the entire clan showed up.
At this point I have been in line for 27 minutes. Okay, paid my $9 for my new pass ($20-$11 for parking refund)
go to the gates
Behind SUPER FAMILY who were all deciding what order they should go through the turnstile, oh and don't forget grandma, who was who knows, where doing who knows what. Could they just let me go.......no, one person had to go find grandma, while the kids began to fight over who was going to go first. Mom was yelling, dad still can't find grandma, and just as the line next to me opened up, I was cut off by the mega family who was behind me.
So Dad found grandma, the kids stopped fighting, and then they finally decided to look for their tickets. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
To make a long story even longer (he he) I started weaving through the crowd like a lead block with a stroller. Up Main Street. I'll be ticked if I missed everyone. Nope in the distance I see....I see....um YEAH DUSTYSAGE! okay, knew I missed the picture, but lets have fun anyway.
SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! WHERE IS MY KIDS OTHER SHOE!!!!! I started looking around, with the help of Darkbeer. No luck, so now I just spent over an hour trying to get to Disneyland, it's beginning to rain and my kid just lost a shoe. Okay, I'll buy her a new pair, no problem
problem, they don't sell her size.
hum, I'm not leaving this place without a Bengal BBQ.
run to Adventure Land
get my skewers.....where the heck am I going to sit
ahh inside the French Cafe
So now I'm holding a ton of food for me and Maddie, in the rain, and pushing a stroller while trying to open the door of French Cafe as a group of teenagers watched my juggling act with stupid looks on their faces (thought about saying "thanks for the help" but I didn't". So Maddie and I sat down next to some MCers, we had a quick conversation about Weird Al Yankovitch" and we went on our merry way.
So, it's still raining so, I just ran into a store to grab a quick blanket because Maddie looked like she was hypothermic. $32 later we left the store.
Now my Uggs are soaked and I just knew they were beginning to stink, I headed towards the front gate without going on a single attraction.
Just another crazy day at the Mouse, I can just sit back and giggle.
