Happy New Year, my little ponies!
I know we’re five days into the new year, but I hope 2015 is treating you kindly. I think I may have gotten a little bug from traveling, but despite the fact that I’m having a hard time breathing through my nose and feel like I’m gonna collapse whenever I get up, I believe I’ve had a good start so far!
My family and I headed down to SoCal on New Year’s day and I ended up getting to go to Disneyland that evening with my sister, her boyfriend, and my cousin and his wife. Disneyland is one of the only places in the world where I don’t care if I’m a third wheel, let alone a 5th wheel. Plus I ended the first day of the year with a churro and hot chocolate. 😀
I’m super happy that I was able to go while all the Christmas decorations were still up. Disney during the holiday season is my absolute favorite! I also got to celebrate mine and my mom’s birthdays a bit early at Goofy’s Kitchen for breakfast. I’ve always wanted to do a character breakfast and it was THE BEST — despite the fact that they only sing “Happy Birthday” to kids and not adults. I mean, agist much? But that’s okay, two cast members at the park later called me “Princess Nina.” 😀
OH! And the bananas foster’s crepes at Goofy’s Kitchen… ERMERGERD. I had three because they were that deloycious. <– I should really be a food critique.
My sister told me Goofy’s Kitchen was a lot better than the character breakfast at Carnation Plaza inside the park, soooo if you’ve never had a character dining experience at Disneyland and plan to do so go to Goofy’s Kitchen! It’s so much fun because Chip, Dale, Pluto, and Minnie go around while you’re eating and you can take pictures with them. Sometimes they like to mess with you too; Dale stared at me for the longest time while I was digging into my waffle and Pluto kept putting Ryan’s (sister’s boyfriend) tiger hoodie up. And Minnie was dancing like she was up in ‘da club.
– le sigh –
Good times. Good times.
We also got to meet Baymax and Hiro from Big Hero 6 before they left the park for good (I think their last day was today). It was definitely worth the 1 hour wait to meet them because I got to hug Baymax AND do a fist bump with him. I wanted to cry tears of joy because he was so utterly adorable! Yes, I’m going to be 29 next week. Yes, these kind of things bring me to tears. 😛
Hopefully more Disney adventures await this year before my pass expires in August!
