We couldn't not go to Disneyland. I have an obsession with this place. I think about going on a daily basis. So much history, creativity and fun memories at DL. Not to mention everything is professional, immaculate and clean.
The weather was perfect! Not hot and not cold.
We rode the carousel first. Ollie was a big fan. Did you know this carousel is one of the oldest in the world? All of the horses are made out of wood. It's from the 1800's. See cool history!
Nichole and Jude came and meet us. It really meant a lot to us having them come. They have passes and Jude is an expert. He really wanted us to experience the Tiki Room. But we agreed on finishing up Fantasy Land first.
There is just something about Rabbit's Door that is so cool for kids. I remember trying to open the door when I was little.
The Tiki Room! I usually skip this one, but when you have a toddler who loves birds you experience the Tiki Room. It was the late 1950's early 60's at it's finest. Ollie was in awe.
Next we stopped and got lunch. We tried a new place that Nichole recommended called Bengal BBQ. It was reasonably priced and was really good. We got a chicken and a veggie Kabob and a tiger tail to share.
Then we did Pirates! One of my favorite rides. I always get scared for the drops after all these years and times riding it. Nichole thought it was funny. I was nervous for Ollie because of the drops, but they didn't phase him. He was into all of the action and singing.
Jude calls Josh, "Uncle Josh." Originally Nichole thought Josh had to work and told Jude he wasn't coming and he was bummed. So he was SUPER excited that Josh was at DL. Jude wanted to go on every ride with Josh. It was really cute.
This trip marked 10 years since Nichole and I had been at DL together. The last time was Grad Night c/o 2003. That night was SO much fun! A bunch of high school seniors running around the park from 11pm to 6am. You can imagine the chaos. That night was also one of her first dates with her Husband.
They changed the seats for the Matterhorn. I forget every time how jostled you get. It's so fun to scream on this ride!
We all took a break and ate Mickey Pretzels. Ollie ran around.
We let Ollie run around in the ship and then this playground.
Next we meet back up with Nichole and Jude. Jude was trying to pull the sword out.
In line for Peter Pan. I still love flying over London and watching all of the twinkling lights.
Jude loves Ollie. Ollie isn't so sure. This cracked Nichole and I up!
Ollie had been wanting a Baloon all day. Josh spoiled him and bought him one. This boy was thrilled!
We watched the Parade and headed out down Main Street.
It was such a fun day at DL. Josh had a very enjoyable time which made me happy. Ollie had a blast. And I had so much fun with my family and friends. DL is just so fun! I wish we could have spent another day, then another and another and maybe just one more. :)
