Jumpin Jellyfish ride at Disney's California Adventure
It's not just me right? You see it too? :)
I hope you're all enjoying your Memorial Day weekend!
We're hanging in our home turf now, but Thursday and Friday we finally cashed in my husband's prize for winning Employee of the Year......2-Day passes to Disneyland and Disney's California Adventures for the whole family. As a native Southern Californian, Disneyland has been a part of my upbringing. I remember the paper ticket booklets, making popular the "E-ticket" term. I have had the opportunity to visit Disney a number of times throughout my 44 years. My husband worked in a Anaheim Hotel just as stone's throw from Disney and would recount all the excited families ready for a day of magic. And even though we live about 15 miles away, on summer nights and weekends I know it's 9:35 pm when I hear the boom from the fireworks show.
So off we went in different directions, the teens hit the "Mountains" as in Space Mountain, Splash Mountain and Thunder Mountain Railroad. And my husband and I took our 10 year old to Fantasyland for some tamer fun more up her alley. (How can a child who made it through the entire movie of The Hunger Games be so terrified in the Alice in Wonderland and Snow White rides? :) ) Anyway, despite the crowds and long lines, I am grateful to have had the opportunity for some more memories at Disney.
