Once Upon A Time...

There was a couple who loved Disneyland, with all of it's beautiful colors, and fun rides it was one of their most favorite places. They went rain or shine, sleet or snow :)

We went to Disneyland again on Monday. It was our last time going, our passes run out and it would be silly to renew them right before we go to Wales, so we headed down there even though it was raining. It turned out not to be too bad, it only sprinkled when we first got there and right before we left. It was a great last hurrah. We got to do a few extra fun things.

The Hartley's were there as well, we had a blast with them. I'm glad that we finally got to go with them. Alan & Jeremy were on a hidden mickey kick and we found quite a few with the help of the hidden mickey book. We found some in Indiana Jones, Behind the R, Buzz lightyear, space mountain, by the sun, soaring over CA, Pinocchio, snow white and lots more random hidden mickeys. The one I liked the most is actually a hidden Eeyore on Indiana Jones...that's right people, good luck finding these things. It made it just a little extra fun, partly because Noel and I were laughing at Alan and Jeremy, but also it was fun when we found ones we were searching for.
It was really fun, a family was leaving the park and they hadn't used there Dream passes very much so they just gave them to us. That was pretty sweet. The dream pass is like the ultimate fast pass. Usually you can only have one fast pass at a time but this is like an automatic fast pass.
Alan and I went to Goofey's Kitchen...I loved it! I had been back in the day with the fam, but Alan had never been. I always love when the characters come and visit, and when they dance around with all of the kiddos. The food is yummy too :)
Did I mention we rode Toy Story Mania 4 times!!! That's right, once it was even after the park was technically closed. We got off of the ride right after 8pm (which is when ca adventures was closing) it was like 8:05 or something, they weren't letting anymore people on, and Alan and Jeremy begged the Disney peeps to go on once more. Alan totally pulled the I'm moving to another country card! But they let us go again :) It is a pretty awesome ride. Alan's highest score of the day was 220,400!
I was sad I didn't get to ride the tea cups one last time, but really I couldn't have asked for a better "last" day. Maybe someday in a few years when we are back visiting we'll get to go back...or just maybe the next blog about Disneyland will be from Eurodisney, that would be fun :)
...And They Lived Happily Ever After

That last picture with the teacups is just so cute. I think I see a large wall hanging of that in your Welchen home. Really cute.

I can't believe I didn't see this fun! I didn't know you hung out with the Hartleys. Wish we could've been there!
