Disneyland & WOC

Last Friday, Friday the 13th, I went to Disneyland.

We headed straight to California Adventure for World of Color fastpasses. We were hoping for the 11:15 showing but ended up with 10:15. The park opens at 10am and we were in line at 10:45.

We got fastpasses for California Soarin’ then headed over to Tower of Terror. We spent the rest of our time in Disneyland-Matterhorn, Indiana Jones, Pirates, Haunted Mansion, It’s a Small World, we also got fastpasses for Space Mountain.

We headed back over to California Soarin’ to use our fastpasses then around 3pm we went to Red Robin for “lunch”

We were basically done with the park at this time we just needed to add Space Mountain and World Of Color.

A few stories, while we were in line at the Matterhorn this guy with downs started talking about the ride. He said unless we suffer from motion sickness we should be fine. The funny thing is I think Ben mentioned needing to use the restroom and hopefully he’ll be fine on the ride. LOL.

We saw an interesting character and actually bumped into her a few times. It seemed as if she was following us, according to the guys.

The character

For Space Mountain Ben tried to make a funny face but only got this far… Honestly though, he looks the same on all the rides…

Space Mountain

Then WOC was absolutely gorgeous! It was well worth the wait! We had the 10:15 showing. We headed over to DCA around 9:15 to make some food stops. Danny is in love with their corn dogs. Marc is in love with their ice cream. Anyway we got our food and assembled ourselves with a throng of people around 9:30ish. We did a lot of waiting, standing around, weaving in and out of groups, etc. We got a pretty decent view. The show is about 25 minutes long. Enjoy the few pictures! I have many more but you get the picture, no pun intended.

Pocahontas

This is the part where Dory asks, "DO YOU SPEAK WHALE?!?!"

The Palace from Aladdin

Sebastian from Little Mermaid (Under the Sea)

The colors were so beautiful!

As you can see, this is definitely a world of color show. MUST SEE!

Last night the Hatches and my friends went to Bonelli Lake to sea-doo/wave runner. I went to the lake but didn’t participate. I’ve been on it so many times already. Oh and Ben managed to flip the sea-doo within the first 2 minutes of driving.

We went to Shogun in La Verne afterward. Yummy….Unfortunately I was so occupied and hungry I completely forgot to take pictures… sorry. Next time, I promise.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Today after church we’re going back to Pasadena for some ramen noodle. Even more yummy

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Tomorrow I’m going to Disneyland! I’m excited because I haven’t seen California Adventure’s World of Color yet! I don’t know how it’ll go exactly since I’m on a non-starch diet (post still to come). Don’t worry, QueenP I will answer your question!

Saturday my friends leave. Sunday the foreign exchange students leave. It’s going to be really quiet in the house now.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Actually, if I remember correctly…I think my mom invited one of her old best friends to stay at our house for a few days. Something about them traveling down here to go to Disneyland 🙂

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

So it may not be a quiet house yet

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Saturday before my friends’ flight I think Danny and I are going to take them to the Promenade… Marc’s idea

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

My bff is about to get a girlfriend… I’m sad but happy. Happy for him but sad for me… ah, life. It was bound to happen sometime. Although I find it ironic that he incited me to join in on his singles club… hm… lol

Yes with all this food tasting it sounds like I’m just blowing off money?! Oh no, I was on a spending fast all last month and the weeks prior to this friend visit. Also, when they leave I am back on that spending fast.

Oh yesterday at the lake I was hanging out with my niece (2 years old). She was throwing sand into a pile building a sand castle. I was sitting down next to her helping. I would occasionally stand up to stretch my legs. She would say my name, “Melanie… “

Yes Cayleigh? What do you want?

She would point beside her and say “Sit Down”

Ah, kids…
