Leave for San Diego today

The last 6 days have been WILD!!! We've alternated between BUSY 8am-6pm days at Disneyland to 3 hours in the morning, relaxing all afternoon & then nice 3-4 hour leisurely evenings at DL. It's been fun & I'm glad we did the 5 day thing instead of 3 or 4 days. Made me feel like I could rest when we wanted.

Day 1 -- Sunday. Up early for breakfast (love this hotel & their breakfast!) then off to our first day of Disneyland. Run, run, run. Wait, ride, wait, walk, wait, ride. We hit the "important" rides first. For DS that meant Indiana Jones & dd, Pirates of the Caribbean. They "updated" Pirates to go along more w/the movie but I still found it DULL!! The rides does NOT follow the story of the movie so stop trying to make it. It's just confusing if you do! We were going to hit the new Finding Nemo ride but I REFUSED to wait 3 hours for ANY RIDE!!!

Space Mountain had reopened. When we were here 3 years ago, it was closed. Now here's an interesting (to me anyway) continuity to my life: When I was here as a little kid in 1977, we were going to ride Space Mountain. It was a new ride then and there was some huge long wait like 45 minutes (this was in the OLD DAYS when you needed tickets to ride rides). Anyway, we decided to wait. We had been there about 10 minutes & the ride closed down. Since we were only going to be there for 1 day, we left & I never got to ride. So, we get in line to go this time. The wait is only like 20 min or so (we also got a fast pass for later). We wait, we move a little, we wait, we move a little. WE WAIT!! And WAIT. AND WAIT. Sorry ladies & gentlemen, the ride is malfunctioning, we have to close it down. Talk about Dejavu. We had the fast passes for later so, we left the line. We did finally end up riding & the kids loved it. I kept waiting for the giant drop (I figured if we kept going up & up & up, surely there would be the horrible drop soon. But there wasn't. COOL!)
Ok, this took too long to post so now I've got to close up the computer & leave!!
