Back from Disneyland Part III
The morning started early on the first day of going to the park. While the park did not open until 10am the kids were up and ready to go at 8 am. So we headed for downtown disney to kill some time. There is a fountain in downtown disney, last picture above, which the kids really liked. It would randomly shoot water out and it kept them entertained for hours. This is also the spot where the question "Are they triplets" was first asked in Disney. I'd say we were asked at least 1,000 times during our three days there.
As we entered the gates the kids spotted some characters and wanted to go see them. The only one we managed to meet at that time was Goofy. I am so happy I decided to ignore Don and bought the kids autograph books because they really loved having the books to get autographs. They had so much fun meting Goofy.
Off we went to find our first ride. I wanted to start them in Fantasyland but they spotted the Buzz Lightyear ride in Tomorrowland and wanted to ride that one first. There was no line for the ride we walked right on after dragging Zach through as he decided it was too scary. He ended up having loads of fun on the ride but that was the first of many times we had to drag Zach onto a ride. After getting off the ride it empties into a store filled with Toy Story and Buzz Lightyear toys. We spent a good 10 minutes trying to move the boys on. Once outside Zach spies Buzz Lightyear and took off to meet him. I have to say the boys are still talking about meeting Buzz Lightyear. They had so much fun meeting one of their favorite characters.
The next ride we did was Astro Orbitor. Zach would not even consider getting on the ride so I stayed with him while Don rode with Nathan and Noah. This turned out to be a favorite of the Nathan and Noah. The rode this ride at least 4 more times during our visit. We then hit the Finding Nemo submarine ride which was the longest wait in line we had the whole entire time. We stood in line for at least 30 minutes. Course Zach started to freak out again as we tried to load on the ride yet ended up enjoying the ride once on. Next stop was Autotopia. Zach and I went together and he had fun driving. Near the end Zach told me that he did not want to drive again, it was too hard and scary.
We stayed at Disneyland until about 2pm when we moved over to California Adventures. More to come later.
