The Happiest Place on Earth

I got back from my super amazingly fantastical 4-day Disneyland adventure last night around 2:30 am! Or technically, earlier this morning. My back is killing me (Tim had to put Icy Hot patches on me, and I’ve been downing Aleve like there’s no tomorrow), my feet are sore, and there’s slight chaffage between my thighs, but I already miss Disneyland oh-so-terribly. 🙁 And despite the fact that we were there for 4 days, we still didn’t do everything we wanted to do. BUT, we also got annual passes, so we have a whole year to go back as many times as we can!!!

Some pretty interesting things happened during our stay — the cast of Modern Family were shooting on location for an upcoming episode. We spotted them on Main Street! And on Saturday, we used our Magic Morning passes to get into the park an hour early, and around 9:30 we headed over to California Adventure to get Fast Passes for World of Color, but we noticed that the park was damn near empty — a rarity for a Saturday at Disneyland. We were stopped by some cast members at the entrance/exit and they told us that there’s a “situation” going on outside of the park, so they weren’t letting anyone in OR out. Basically, we were trapped inside Disneyland which is probably the greatest place anyone could be trapped at. We got to enjoy 3 hours of short lines! But I do feel bad for the folks who had to wait inside the parking lot to get in. :/ Oh yeah, Disneyland closed at 2 am that night too. CRAZYNESS.

I got to see my sister and her boyfriend briefly since they were at the park for the One More Disney Day event a few days before we got there.

We asked a cast member to take our photo — he ended up making us do 3 poses.

I saw someone wearing the SAME EXACT Hello Kitty cardigan and leaf print dress as me. WHAT ARE THE ODDS???

Meeko wears a bow tie now. Bow ties are cool.

These are not the droids you are looking for.

Disneyland was a ghost town on Saturday morning. It was amazing!

Eric Stonestreet (Cameron!) from Modern Family.

This looks like an engagement photo. Hehe. 🙂

The World of Color show is by far one of my favorite things about California Adventure.

At elecTRONica with Sam and Aaron.

Aladdin and Jasmine on It’s a Small World.

Tim and I with the ultimate couple: Mickey and Minnie.

Another one of my favorite things at California Adventure is the sketch class.

Prince Eric & Ariel.

Matchy-matchy with the Sleeping Beauty duds.

In case you haven’t thrown up over the cute couply pictures we took.

Captain EO is so delightfully 80s. <3

I can’t wait to go back for my next visit!!!!!!
