Continuing on with our recap of 2019, at the end of the San Diego trip, we took the kids to Disneyland for one day and one day only. And truth be told, they actually wanted to go to Six Flags, but because Aidon and I aren’t crazy about roller coasters we convinced them that Disneyland (and the new Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge area) was the way to go.
We checked into the same hotel we always do, Homewood Suites by the Sheraton, and we made it just in time for Happy Hour. (This particular hotel not only does an amazing breakfast spread every morning, they also do a weekly Happy Hour. But not just any Happy Hour. Sure, they have wine and beer, but more importantly, they basically serve dinner. For FREE. The night we checked in it was a Nacho Bar.)
This is me, sipping my cheap Pinot, watching my boys play in the pool. I think this hotel pretty much sells itself.
The next day, we woke up early to be the first in the park. I made everyone get some sort of hat, because it’s not vacation if you’re not paying $30+ per hat that you’ll only wear at Disneyland.
Galaxy’s Edge was AMAZING! The blue milk was not. I don’t know what I thought it would taste like, but Davey and I could only choke down about half of it.
We planned on eating at the Cantina, but didn’t know that we had to have made a reservation about 6 months ago. When I asked the hostess if she had seating for lunch or dinner that day and she laughed, it was pretty clear that everyone knew this but us. So, note to self: make a reservation for when we return to Disneyland in 2022.
So street corn on the cob it is!
It was a long day, but a good day. I think we put in about 25,000 steps each. And I think I said this last time we went, but hands down, my Birkenstocks were the real MVP’s. My feet were tired at the end of the night, but nowhere near hurting. Can’t recommend them enough. 🙂
