Disney Diary, Day 2

So, while we were bouncing around Disneyland on Sunday, we saw this HUGE line waiting for the new Finding Nemo ride. We found out it was a 3 hour wait. We decided that on Monday, we'd be one of the first at the gate when it opened & we'd get a jump on the line. So, while Daddy went to work, the kids & I left for Disney at 7:30. We arrived (via the shuttle service) at 7:58. Yea us! Well, we rounded the corner & saw that 10000 others had the same idea as us!! The lines waiting to get in we're all the way across the entry way to CA Adventure and then some!!

So, we gave up on the idea of Nemo & gave up on getting into DL for awhile. We walked into Downtown Disney just to look around & kill about 15 minute until the crowds cleared out. Well, when we got to Downtown Disney, there was no line to get in thru the Monorail. So, we asked if that was just for hotel guests or could we ride? They said sure! So, we ended up in Disney, at Tomorrowland, just like we wanted! We rode a bunch of rides, looked around at all the things to buy but the kids wouldn't commit to buying anything. Then, we went back to the hotel for lunch, took nice long naps!

After DH came home, we went back but to Calif Adventure this time. We rode a bunch of rides that we had never ridden before. We all rode the California Screaming but Nick called it a "death machine" We all had a blast. CA closes at 9pm so, we were going t o head over to DL to watch the fireworks but, walking out of CA, we were too tired so we convinced the kids to head back to the hotel. From the upstairs window, we had a pretty good view of the fireworks anyway. Yea us!
