It started off on October 9th at Brisbane International airport, where we flew to LAX via Auckland NZ. Flights were 3 hours to NZ then 13 hours to LA
Waiting patiently for the plane so we could start our adventure
we arrived the moday after the gay days weekend, at about 2pm and by sheer luck Hakuna Makarla and Princess Buttercup had a late flight, and we managed a quick dinner at rainforeest cafe, before they headed back home. A surprise was that NeverNeverland joined us too!!!
we were spending 12 nights at the anaheim desert Inn
we don't have any raiforest cafe in Australia, so this was a real treat for us!!
after that we decided to go into disneyland. this was jr Tassie's first disney experience on entering (jr Mr tassie was too scared!!!)
the parade was getting ready to start, so we picked a spot and get ready. The kids were getting tired! they had started out the day at 6am, our flights left at 12.30pm Queensland time, then 17 hours travel time, and this was about 6 hours after we arrived
I LOVE this pic. i love the blue
a couple more parade pics
then went on a few "important" rides LOL LOL Pirate, HM, train....
The next day after sleeping LATE we went across to the WalMart. we don't have any walmart's in Australia, so we spent hours there LOL LOL
Then we were meeting the Ginarella family for dinner at ESPN. At this stage ginarella hadn't joined Micechat. we became friends a few years ago at the woman's day message boards, so they didn't attend any of the MC meets.
then we went back to watch the parade AGAIN!!! this time a Mickey cuddle
the next day was our breakfast at the Plaza inn
the kids got the autograph books and were quite excited. jr Mr tassie was OK until .Captain Hook made an appearance
Then our first visit to DCA
