Disneyland is dead when it rains!

24 Feb

Well, we dug out the ol’ Annual Passport and drove down to Disneyland today for Grant’s first visit!  It had rained pretty good last night, so it was nice and wet, and most everyone had rain gear on.  Andrew had the baby in the carrier and I walked with Katie.  It was just a little misty by the time we got in, but we had a great time.  Of course some of our favorites were closed (Jungle Cruise, Small World and the Carousel), but we went on some we haven’t done in awhile (Storybook Village and Dumbo).

Also, I took Katie on the Matterhorn for the first time! It was great for me, since over the last year I was pregnant and couldn’t go on it!  She had a good time, and likes to retell how she screamed when she saw the ‘Snow Monster’.  Still not quite tall enough for Big Thunder Mountain.  Maybe next year…. this kid is growing like a weed.  Only 2 1/2 and almost 39″ tall!  One more inch to go! 🙂

Three hours was enough for us, then back home for lunch and a nap.

    Wow – that would be so cool just to jaunt over to Disney Land when we have some time 🙂 I have never actually been to Disney Land before – someday I will get there.

    By the way, I finally did the favorite post meme you tagged me for 🙂

    It is nice going when the weather isn’t perfect. Every now and then (maybe once a year) I take my kids out of school so we can go off season, mid week, and it’s nice to not have to stand in hour long lines. Come to think of it, we haven’t been in a year, so it might be good to go soon before all the spring break madness. We can see the Disneyland fireworks from our upstairs bedroom (we’re about 10 miles away so they are small but still visible).

    Goofy – It is great to go whenever. The passes are about $150 per person and it pays for itself! We usually pack a lunch and go for a few hours when we are bored. Also, I saw your meme!

    Lisa – I’m about 5 miles away so it looks as if we are neighbors! 🙂 I can’t see the fireworks because of the trees, but we can hear them at 9:30 every night! 🙂

    We can hear them, too. We have a school track and field behind our house so trees and tall buildings are not an issue.

    Today would have been a nice day to go.. maybe a little too hot!! Gotta love these California February’s.

    Your post sounded so nice, I want to go buy another annual pass! 🙂 We had one b/f we had kids and only went ONCE, so it was totally not worth it. Somehow it completely slipped my mind that now that we have kids, we might actually use it more often. Yay! more fun things for us to do!

    hsuree – you should get one. Your son will be free until he turns 3 (and baby too of course).
