Here we are folks. Our final day in Disneyland. Bless you, if you’ve made it with us this far. I’m even tired of writing about it, but I know I’ll regret it later on down the road if I don’t memorialize our trip.
Our last day was so much more relaxed than our first day. There was no urgency to do anything, mostly because we had already done it. So we just took our sweet time and rode our favorites again and tried to beat our high scores on the Buzz Light Year Ride.
Aidon loved this rocket ride in Tomorrow Land. More than HyperSpace Mountain and Star Tours. It just spins around and you can move the rocket you’re in up and down. Don’t ask.
Waiting in line for Thunder Mountain! We loved this coaster!
After Splash Mountain, Aidon was game to do almost any ride.
This is one of my favorite pictures of the 3 of them.
I’m so happy they like each other. People ask us all the time if they fight and the honest response is no. Hardly ever. I like to think that a big part of that is credited to the fact that they shared a bedroom until Trenton was 12. They had bunk beds and all slept together and really had no choice but to get along. Even now they try to sleep in each other’s rooms, sometimes on the floor, even though they all have perfectly good beds. But it’s hard to be mad about that. 🙂
The boys thought it was oh-so-funny to hear Davy Jones Locker over and over again inside Pirates of the Caribbean. “We know him! We know him!”
We had plans to eat at the restaurant inside Pirates, but one look at the menu, I knew the boys weren’t going to like it. They saw Royal Street Seafood Jambalaya and took off. And, truth be told, I wasn’t exactly in the mood for Herb-crusted Rack of Lamb at 1:00 in the afternoon.
On our way to find better food, we ran into the Genie from Aladdin. (Trenton was really hoping for Jasmine, but she had gone inside to take a break.)
None of us were starving, so we wandered into Toon Town. The boys weren’t as interested in this area; it was a little too juvenile or them.
BUT. This is where we saw Mickey. So it was worth it.
After we left Toon Town, we ate lunch in Downtown Disney at Earl of Sandwich. Huz’s pick. Obviously. It was good…but nothing that knocked my socks off or anything. I’d eat there again, but it wouldn’t fly to Disney just to eat there, you know?
The last thing we did at Disneyland was watch the parade. After our experience at World of Color none of us wanted to sit and save seats for the 4 hours ahead of the show. So we waited until the last minute and stood by a trash can to watch Tinkerbell fly across the sky. It was fun, but again, I’m good just seeing it once.
And now…officially…our Disneyland days are over. It was great and I already can’t wait to go back when Star Wars Land is open. As you’re going over the top of Splash Mountain, you could see where the construction was starting on the new addition and I. Can’t. Wait.
Like we need excuse to go back to the happiest place on earth…but now we have one. 🙂
