It had been quite a long time since we had last been to Disneyland, so we jumped at the chance to join the rest of the Hawkins clan for a day there recently. Our trip was postponed by our one and only big rainstorm of the winter, but once we finally made it we were given a beautiful day to enjoy.
As with most little ones who don’t remember Disneyland, just the tram ride to the park was a thrill for Silas. We got there nice and early so the park wasn’t open yet.
Once we got inside the crowds were pretty light and we hit Tomorrowland right away.
It is a very good thing that the lines were short because waiting in any length of line is challenging for a 2 1/2 year old, even with six adults to keep him entertained.
It is a good lesson though, since the payoff once you get on a ride, is so great!
Our munchkins prefer the sophisticated rides like the Mark Twain riverboat to the thrill rides, and the favorite ride of the day was the Astroblasters.
We made it the whole day and into the evening with no more than the expected Disney-induced meltdowns, and the kids loved finishing the day watching the parade down Main St.
See ya later Mickey! Thanks for a great day! We’re out of here!
