Disney Day

It’s been five months since we’ve been to Disneyland and California Adventure, so we figured that it was time to take Vivian back there. Also, we had free tickets that expired in early June. So, off to Disneyland we went last Sunday.

We met with with our new neighbors and friends, the Gonzalezes, in California Adventure. While there, we went on the Flik’s Flyers, Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train, King Triton’s Carousel (a first for everyone!), and The Little Mermaid – Ariel’s Undersea Adventure rides. We ate lunch, drank a beer, and then ventured over to Disneyland. While there, we went on the Disneyland Railroad, “it’s a small world,” and the Jungle Cruise. We ended our Disney day like we nearly always do now, with a visit to the Enchanted Tiki Room.

“it’s a small world”

Vivian had already been on all but one of the rides before, but it was fun to see her excitement on them now that she’s a little older and “gets” them. We have two more free tickets that we need to use by the end of the year, so the next time that we go, it will most likely be Christmastime and Vivian will be over 1 1/2 years old. Wow!

    Two things surprised me about your Disneyland visit. This was your FIRST time on the carousel? And, you go to the Enchanted Tiki Room as the last attraction? Is that so on the way home you can keep singing

    “In the Tiki Tiki Tiki TIki Tiki Room,
    In the Tiki Tiki Tiki TIki Tiki Room,
    All the birdies sing and the flowers bloom,
    In the Tiki Tiki Tiki TIki Tiki Room,

    or is it so that the Tiki Room song does not displace “It’s a Small World, after all” from your brain during your time at Disneyland. :•)

      Nope, we’d never been on King Triton’s Carousel before the other week. We’d been on the carousel in Fantasyland, but not the one in CA Adventure. The carousel in Fantasyland, however, was Vivian’s first ever Disneyland ride.

      We tend to visit the Tiki Room last when we are tired and ready to sit down for a few minutes and relax before making the long trek to the parking garage!
