First Day of Disneyland

Yesterday was our first day at Disneyland. In the morning, we had the conference and then after that we came back to the trailer, had lunch and a nap, and then went to Disneyland. It was a fun conference, I liked it. Next year's will be in Houston, Texas. We may go.

The first thing we did when we got to Disneyland was we saw Goofy and got his autograph. Then we went on Star Tours, which is a Star Wars ride where you sit in seats like you're in a space ship and they move the seats so it feels like you are actually in space moving around. My favorite part was the light speed where you go really fast and it actually felt like I was going to fall out of my seat.

The next ride we went on Space Mountain. Then we went on the Autotopia where we got to drive cars. It was kind of hard, you were on a rail but you had to turn the car and if you didn't turn the car it would turn itself but it would make it really bumpy, and I had to drive. Then we went on the Matterhorn and then went to Toon Town. While we were at Toon Town we went to Mickey's house and got his autograph. We also went on the Roger Rabbit ride. Ever since I went on the ride, I've been wanting to see the movie, Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Then we went on the train and headed over to New Orlean's Square and went on the Haunted Mansion. Jacob got super scared and hid in my dad's shirt the whole time! I got a little scared too, but it was still fun. After that we went on Pirates of the Carribean and the Winnie the Pooh ride. We also did Indiana Jones and Thunder Mountain Railroad. The line for the Indiana Jones ride was super long and it felt like we had to wait for hours. Once we finally got inside, we had to wait in another long line to get to it. One of the reasons it took so long is that they have a thing called a fast pass where you can come back during a specific time and lots of people were doing that. And they get to go to the front of the line. Once we finally got up there, the ride was really fun. We got to one part where Indiana Jones was hanging there trying to get into the temple and then the big huge rock started rolling towards us and then it looked like it would roll on top of us but then we went under it. We also went on the Jungle Cruise. It was really cool. The animals were fake, but the guy who did it acted really funny and made it look like it was real. That was our day at Disneyland. I had a lot of fun and I can't wait until we go again today.

Your description of Disneyland made me feel like I was there too! Thanks for the little escape! I love Disneyland, even as an adult it is the greatest place to go for fun.

Try to get on the ride in California Adventures where it takes you flying above the state of California, it's fantastic!!!

Your friend, Florence

Hey Allison, sounds like you are having a GREAT time in Disneyland!!! Our boys want to go back to Disney World sometime. It's been so long since we've been. Last time we went Daniel was so little that he was in a stroller (wearing a scary mask that he insisted that he wear after we bought it).


Love, Nancy in Alabama

Disneyland is one of my favorite places in the world. Next time it gets really hot, try buying a frozen lemonade and sitting in the Tiki Room! You'll be amazed how cool you feel when you're done... Have a great time!
