Thought I would start my trip report!!
We just got back from Disneyland on Saturday, the 10th. We had a great time. The weather was just beautiful.
We arrived on Dec. 6th at John wayne airport, and drove the very short 15 min. drive to the Disneyland Hotel. It was around 11:00 am, so our room wasn’t ready, but they gave us our concierge card and we went up for some quick snacks. The lounge was nice, we grab some water and chips. We then headed to Disneyland. We went in through the monorail and we were very lucky to get up front with the driver, my kids were soooo excited, so was I!!!
Great way to start!!!
When we got into Disneyland, I was a bit surprised at the lines and the amount of people. I was spoiled a few years back and was hoping for the same. But with the 50th, well it was to be expected. My kids decided to do the Matterhorn first, my daughter liked it but my son didn’t like the monsters eyes. I, of course, loved it. We then went on It’s a small world, we all loved this ride, I loved the holiday lay over. Most of the other rides had about 15 to 20 min waits. Especially in Fantasy Land. We kinda stayed in tomorrow land. We HAD to do Autopia before we left to get our room, so off we went. It was about a 20 min wait. I really like this one better then Disney Worlds, Love the off road part!! I swear my daughter tries to give me whip lash LOL!!!
We noticed that more people had come in for the parade and it was getting tough to get around, so we decide to head back to the room.
During our short time in the park, we did start taking pictures of the Golden 50ths. My kids just loved this. It was fun looking for them, some of them looked really cool. We also started the 50th penny presses. Now just imagine, carrying aroung five rolls of quarters and over 100 pennies. It was funny, my hubbys pants kept falling down. LOL So then I put it in my bag. Lucky me!
We got back to the Hotel and got our room. We went up to our room #2757. It was on the 9th floor overlooking disneyland and downtown disney. It had a great view!!! We got a very big room, two queen beds, a daybed, two nightstands, a table, a tv cabinet and the bathroom had double sinks and a seperate toliet. It was great!!! We were getting hungry, so we went down to Croc bites and grab a couple burgers. They were good. The day finally caught up to us and we were sooooo tired!! We headed back up to the room and called it a day. The beds were GREAT!!! The sheets were soft and the pillows were perfect!!! Well, we got into bed and we were all asleep within minutes. Tomorrow is California adventure!!
