We headed in to Disneyland bright and early.  Everyone was excited for our fun day, but there was a bit of dissappointment to see that is was a gloomy, wet, and grey day.  We found that it was to our benniffit though as it seemed to be a slow start to the morning as far as crowds went.  We were able to jump right on the riverboat adventure ride with no wait!


Mr. M headed right to the Indiana Jones adventure store as soon as we got off of the boat (the Indiana Jones ride was closed :( ).  He is quite the adventurer and took to this hat right away.  We thought it would be a great souvenier for him.

As we were walking by we realized that the line for Pirates of the Caribbean was short as well so we all hopped on.  The three littles were not so sure about it, the girls were happy to close their eyes in a few spots, but thought all of the treasure was great!  Mr. K loved looking at all the new sights, but did not think that the dips on the ride were so great (no fussing, he was just nervous).

Frontier Land was a hit.  The kids enjoyed some target practice before some of us got on Big Thunder (Mommy, Miss E, Mr. M, Mr. S and Miss J).

Doesn't she just look so natural there?

They closed the line just after we got in line.  It seems there was a problem with the ride... "Don't worry ma'm its just something with the decor" as I got on the last car going through.
It was time for a snack.  Miss E had her eye on the Mickey shaped pretzls.

Rob took the big kids on Splash Mountain.

I took the littles on the Winnie the Pooh ride.  Miss C was so excited to go on this ride, Pooh is her favorite.

As soon as we got off the ride Miss C headed into the store, spotted the Pooh Bears and sweetly asked me to get her one.  How could I resist?  Not only was she so cute, but Pooh Bear was big at Dad's house!


The candy store near the Winnie the Pooh ride was a big hit.  Then we were off to lunch.

  1. Ah, good memories. It looks like your family had a good time.

    Yes, overcast is the best time to go to Disneyland! Locals stay home, no sunburn, shorter lines (and they are short anyway when we homeschool families go mid-week during school hours!). The only bummer for us when we went last time was it started to sprinkle *just* when Bronwyn was up participaing in the Star Wars show. That made the floor slippery so they had to stop the show before Darth Vader came out. Oh, well, it was fun while it lasted. : )
