Theme park overload…

Filed under: carmen — Jana @ 6:24 am

This week Lee’s sister and her family stayed with us and invited me to go with them to a bunch of the theme parks in California. So on Monday we went to Disneyland, Tuesday Seaworld, Wednesday California Adventure, Thursday I took the day off from universal studios and gave my ticket to some lucky bystander, Friday back to Disneyland, and Saturday the zoo.
Now this sounds like a really fun week, however, when you cram that much crap into that small of a space it kinda takes away some of the charm. Needless to say if I have to push a stroller again soon… I will scream. On Friday everyone and their mother was at Disneyland and We only went on 2 rides the whole day, so that tells you how nuts the crowds were. Carmen got to meet Mickey and Minnie on Monday…

And the princesses on Friday. She seemed mildly amused at all of it. But I’m sure she will enjoy the pictures when she is old enough to know what a Disney character even is.

It was fun but I don’t think I will ever do all of it in such a short span again. At the very end we did find out a loop hole in getting on the ride quickly though…You just go into the single passenger line and you hardly have to wait. Alot of the time (if there are 2 of you) you can still ride together. The concept is that you are filling in the empty spots between groups, so if there are two groups of 6 who want to sit together you can fill in the 2 seats left over. My husband LOVED this and went on splash mountain (his very favorite ride) 3 times in a row and had a ball.

I do love Disneyland though(minus the crowds)…it is so whimsical and fun. Its so nostalgic. To remember how you felt as a kid going to Disneyland, How stoked you were. And to give them credit, they do go to a lot of trouble to keep up the fantasy so the kids get that dreams come true experience.
