    Anaheim - Disneyland

    April 3, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    5.15 wake up call for breakfast at Goofy's Kitchen at one of tbe Disneyland hotels. We met everyone outside and walked to the restaurant. Food was better then I expected. Buffet style - we had scrambled eggs, bacon, breakfast sausages, Mickey waffles, french toast, Mickey pancakes, fruit. Charlee tried the peanut butter & jelly pizza (too much peanut butter). Disney characters including Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and the Chipmunks wandered around entertaining everyone and having photos taken. Kids loved it & so did the adults.

    Back to the hotel & the dancers had to get ready. They left as a group at 9.15 & then everyone else made their way to Disneyland and we entered California Adventure Park . We went on California Soaring & then the Grizzly Water Ride (only got a little wet).Then went to the backlot stage to see the performance. They were excellent & had a good crowd attended. Dance went for 30 mins & it was quite warm. Costumes looked fantastic. We took lots of photos.

    Arriving Saturday April 2 . We left melbourne on Saturday morning . Left home at 6.15am, flight was meant to leave at 10.15am but there was a small delay and we left a little late . 14 hour flight, not much leg room, food was pretty good. Brad had the window seat, Charlee had the aisle & i was in the middle. We all tried to sleep but it was difficult. Arrived pretty much on time at 6.30am in LA Had a problem in immigration as we had a letter from Marisa but the officer said it needed to be stamped by the Aust Govt. He ended up letting us through, mainly because Charlee was in uniform. Phew!

    We got to the hotel approx 8.45am & our rooms were ready ! Charlee got changed & we went for a walk to downtown disney and brad & i had lunch at the earl of sandwich (toasted paninnis) which were good Charlee didn't eat or drink . Went back to our hotel, slept for a few hours then went for a walk to cvs pharmacy to get some supplies. Back to our hotel & we went to the pool. Charlee livened up when some of her friends came to the pool. After the pool & showers, we went over the road to Mimi's cafe for dinner. Charlee rang her mum and got all teary.
