Disneyland and Adventure Park

16 January 2013

John dropped us off around 1000A for a full day of both parks. Hope was our guide coordinating the rides the grandsons wanted. Hope and Colt did several rides that Cade and Nana opted not to do. Several of the attractions were closed at this time of year.

First stop was the Matterhorn ride which Hope and boys did. Hope and Colt then did Space Mountain. We then did the Neptune submarine ride and then the monorail before having our picnic lunch.

Walking over to the "It's a Small World" we decided to take this ride which takes you through a magic Christmas land depicting Christmas around the world. This was a favorite for us.

In Critter Country, Hope and Colt did Splash Mountain ride while Cade and Nana enjoyed sharing popcorn.

 Since the Haunted House in New Orleans was closed, we then walked over to Adventure Park.

The one attraction,Radiator Springs Racers, that Hope and Colt wanted to do was closed. The three of them did Luigi's Flying Tires.

There was more to do,but with only 1 day and it was getting late it will have to be done on another visit. John picked us up around 5 and we stopped at Red Robin for dinner.

An exhausting, but fun day. We were surprised at all the children in the park this time of year. Most lines were 15-30 minutes. Feel you need at least a full day for each park.

There was a lot we did not have time to see since we only had today.
