We had a great trip to Disneyland over the weekend. We got to spend two full days in Disney and one day in California Adventure Park. We met Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Chip and Dale, The Jungle Book Bear, Alice and the Mad Hatter and many more. We rode almost all the rides. Carson rode the biggest, fastest, longest roller coaster on the west coast, The California Screamin' which goes from 0-55 in 4 seconds and goes upside down. She rode it 3 times. Once with mommy kim and twice with momma share. She couldn't believe her old moms love roller coasters! Sam went on some scary rides too. He went on his fair share of roller coasters, but wasn't big enough for Space Mountain or the Screamin'. (no way would I have let him go anyway!) Sam's favorite ride was Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. We went on it many times. The rides in Fantasyland were great. The Teacups, Alice in Wonderland, Flight of Peter Pan, Snow White, The Matterhorn roller coaster were all great. Walt Disney might have been an ass, but he was a genius. You really do get taken to another world inside Disney.
There is a Disney tradition of lapel pin collecting and trading. You can trade a pin with any staff member (they call them Cast Members) if they have pins on a lanyard. Carson spent almost all her spending money on pins and then traded with people. I think I may have had the most fun of all. I loved every ride! They were all so well done and the place was spotless. We couldn't have had a better time (unless we had an extra day!)
