disneyland!

A few hours ago I returned from a weekend spent at the Disneyland Hotel with Erik. We arrived on Friday afternoon for our stay at the Disneyland Hotel. That evening we hit Downtown Disney for some dinner at Tortilla Joe's (the blandest mexican food I've ever had, I guess that's the O.C. for ya!), and then just some random wandering.

Saturday morning we were up early to begin our Disneyland adventure. Here is a list of the rides we went on (in no particular order, and in lowercase for my convenience):

space mountain, honey, i shrunk the audience!, autopia, matterhorn, it's a small world, buzz lightyear astro blasters, roger rabbit's cartoon spin, snow white's scary adventures, alice in wonderland, peter pan's flight, storybook land canal boats, pinocchio's daring journey, pirates of the caribbean, haunted mansion, big thunder mountain railroad, indiana jones adventure

We also managed to score a nice viewpoint from which to watch "Fantasmic!" and the newest fireworks extravaganza "Remember... Dreams Come True". Shortly before that, however, we took in an excellent dinner at the famed (no, not the infamously-impossible-to-get-into Club 33) Blue Bayou Restaurant. That's the restaurant which sits right inside the beginning of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride. We ate in the mock-darkness of a Louisiana bayou night, with the ambience of frogs and swamp insects. I've always wanted to eat there!

Despite my aching feet, a slight sunburnt face and neck, and a deep cough I've somehow managed to pick up, the weekend was really, really, really fantastic - one of my best and funnest trips to the Disneyland Park ever!

Note: pics to come
