Disneyland Day 1

This was our first day in the parks. We made it to Disneyland for rope drop and decided to wait in Tomorrowland. As soon as the park opened, we went straight for a Space Mountain fastpass then moved on to Fantasyland...
Waiting for the park to open.

I was excited :)

The crowds really weren't too bad this day, there weren't very many people waiting for rope drop in Tomorrowland.

Nice shot of the area where we waited.

After getting our SM fastpass we rode the Matterhorn... bumpy yet fun!

Next up was Mr. Toad, the lines were still short in Fanstasyland.

Then Peter Pan. By the time we got off, the lines were starting to get longer.

Club 33.... someday!

Waiting in line for Splash Mountain. Ok... so I got SOAKED every darn time that I rode this! It was actually our first time on the Disneyland version because Splash was getting refurbished during our last visit. You definitely do not get very wet on the Disney World version which I definitely prefer. We still rode several more times, it's one of Brent's favorites.

We rode on Winnie the Pooh after.... always a cute ride. I loved the honeybee heffalumps on the back!
 At this point, we met up with my dear friend Corinne, and her Fiance Dan (a fellow Disney fanatic). We got fastpasses for the newly updated Thunder Mountain Railroad then took some time to visit the darling animals at the petting zoo nearby.

Corinne and Dan!

Treats at the Jolly Holiday Bakery... I had a scrumptious Matterhorn Macaroon.

In Toon Town


Very neat diorama of the Country Bears

Corinne and Dan before they departed for the evening. Brent and I stuck around until the park closed.

Amazing lanters.

Castle at night.

View of Main Street at night. I promise the night time photos get a little better... Brent staring taking pics with his fancy new phone/camera over the next few days.

Of course, we stopped back at Trader Sam's. This time, we ordered the famous Uh-Oa! Get it, you'll be happy with what happens AND how it tastes!

We stopped into the Adventureland tower at Disneyland Hotel and I fell in love with this wallpaper from the bathroom. Can I please cover my entire house with this?!
Next up for tomorrow is the California Adventure Park :)


  1. AAAAHHHHHHHH to all of this. bumble heffalumps. omg. club 33. mr toad. (miss you buddy.) DAN'S SHIRT! original splash mountain. also, is that flaming treat a dessert or a beverage?? i can't handle this.

  2. Oh I know, Mr. Toad! And yes, Dan AND his shirt are just fabulous!! The flaming treat is a drink called the Uh-Oh:

    "Whoever is brave enough to conjure up this concoction cursed by Uh Oa, the tiki goddess of disaster, must be forewarned: When you mess with Polynesia, the tiki gods will squeeze ya (often with a lime)!
    -- Light and Dark Rums, Orange, Passion Fruit, Guava, and Grapefruit Juices, Falernum, Cinnamon, and Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice. Recommended for Two or more Guests."

    It's actually really delicious. I was surprised because I generally do not like sweet mixed drink type cocktails and have never been a fan of the large format tiki drinks such as the Scorpion Bowl. The idea is so fun but I can't drink the darn things! Anyway the Uh-Oa is delightful, the cinnamon really helps to balance out the taste.
