As a fangirl, I have a wide variety of interests. And one of those includes all things Disney. I grew up with Disney, so it sort of makes sense. In fact, growing up, one of my Christmas presents every year was a VHS of a Disney movie. This pretty much happened until well after college (although those VHS tapes eventually became DVDs).
So I also love Walt Disney World (I’ve been several times). And last year, I visited Disneyland for the first time. However, that visit was short, so I decided to spend more time at the parks this year. In fact, I did four days before my annual sojourn to Gallifrey One. And I did it with my friend Rachel (you might know her as @catisidor, the official Gallifrey One countdown person on Twitter). She’s not a Disney fanatic, but I daresay, I believe Disneyland won her over.
Anyway, we did four days at Disneyland and California Adventure. Some highlights include the very cheesy Jungle Cruise (we’re still laughing over the word “paradox”), two high-spirited jaunts with Indiana Jones, two adventures on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and a few plays of Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters (OMG, a ride AND a video game?). I also terrified Rachel with Tower of Terror (she’ll never go on it again) and we got sucked into pin collecting.
We stayed at the Disneyland Hotel, which was a lot of fun because we spent our time in our hotel room searching for Mickey (he was EVERYWHERE). And then there was the wonderful Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar that served the best drinks in the history of drinks.
From that wonderful trip came a lot of memories, so without further ado, I give you my photo gallery of our Disneyland antics.
