This is the iconic Disneyland sign that sits in the middle open area between Disneyland park and California Adventure park. I, of course, didn't catch the sign while it read Disneyland. Here it is showing pictures of many happy faces on kids of all ages.
JoJo was waiting so patiently while John got our tickets. She was taking in all the details...like the Mickey head shaped benches and the monorail tracks.
We first went to City Hall to get John's special pass. Donald was hanging out right outside but the kids weren't used to lines yet and didn't want to wait for his autograph. They learned more about lines as the days went by.
There's Sleeping Beauty's castle and our crew about to walk through it! It was so fun to see the excitement for every new thing they discovered.
JT and Quinn were fascinated by the "magic" apple. When touched the witch's voice spoke.
JoJo didn't like the Snow White ride too much. I think the fact that it's called Snow White's Scary Adventure should have been our first clue, but it had been a long time since we'd been on it. I know that's a poor excuse for traumatizing her. We all decided to go on It's a Small World next to convince her that there are very fun and not scary rides at Disneyland. Something new is all the characters from movies that they have put into the doll form and strategically place throughout the lands. Here's some I snapped up...Alice, Dori, and Woody and Jessie.
I did remember all the fun shaped bushes at Disneyland and Peyton requested pictures of the elephant and giraffe, her favorite animals right now. They were super cute and hard to resist snapping their pictures.
Okay that's all for today. I'll post more pictures and details from our amazing trip real soon.
