A Disney day

Since today is the last day of G's school vacation, I took the day off to go to Disneyland with her and P. I had grand plans of getting there bright and early to beat the crowds (I'll pause here so everyone who knows me in real life can laugh hysterically at the thought of me getting anywhere bright and early), but we ended up not arriving until high noon.

We started out by trying the new Monsters Inc. ride at California Adventure, which we hadn't yet been on. G and I liked it; P thought it was okay, but not worth the 45-minute wait. After we got off the ride and ate lunch, we went into Disneyland, stopping to rent a wheelchair for P, whose arthritis was beginning to bother him. Man, was it crowded in that park. I accidentally ran into the back of a woman's legs with the wheelchair, and earned a dirty look for it, but it was almost impossible not to bump into people with everyone packed together and crawling along at .00000000002 miles per hour. We checked out Pirates of the Caribbean, which I wanted to ride because it's closing for refurbishment in the next couple of weeks, but the line was so long, and the Fastpass time so far away, that we just gave up and left. Hopefully we'll be able to go back before the first spring-break crowds show up in March.

Sounds like we just missed eachother! We were in Disneyland until around 1:15 and then went to Adventure. And yes, it was quite packed.

No kidding! We must practically have crossed in the entrance plaza. Glad you guys had a good time. :-)
