Our second day at Disneyland was going to be a jam packed one. It started just as the other days would, up early and off to get a jump on the others visiting on this day.
We checked Rusty & PeeWee in to the Doggy Hotel and got them settled in. The service at the Disneyland Kennel is outstanding and the accomodations are nice so we did not feel too bad leaving them for a few hours.
Because Disney's California Adventure did not open until 10:00 am we decided to check back into Disneyland for a couple of hours of rides there before going to the sister park. Again the park seemed pretty quiet so we were able to get on most rides without much wait time.
At 10:30 am we were off to Goofy's Kitchen for a Birthday celebration in honor of Ashley. We dined with Goofy, The Mad Hatter and Pricess Jasmine and had a wonderful Birthday cake at out table. Good food and good friends at Disneyland, what more could you ask for?
Filled up and re-charged, we were now off to Disney's California Adventure (DCA) for a full day of fun there. First off it was Grizzly River Rapids and a good soaking there. We all really enjoyed this ride and had wanted to get on it again but never got to it. Off next to California Screamin' a great roller coaster and a wild ride. Again the wait time was not bad at all and in just minutes we were screamin' with the rest of the riders. Brenda is not really fond of the coasters and tends to get a little turned around on them, so she filmed us taking off and laughed at us a bunch.
We all watched and loved the Alladin show at DCA's Hyperion Theatre and then off for our mid-day rest at the hotel. I think we all managed to catch some zzz's and catch our breath before heading back over.
This afternoon, Will, Terra and I checked out The Tower of Terror and really loved it. Ash and Brenda were not so excited to try it and stayed in the shade to wait for us. Short lines again so we were back as a group and off to stake our claim to a choice sopt on the Parade route next. The Electrical Parade was great and then the younguns' wanted to try screamin' one more time before we retired. As they did that Brenda and I took a minute for ourselves and walked and talked a bit. We even managed to catch a bit of the fireworks from Disneyland.
Now we are beat once again and all are looking forward to climbing onto the bed to crash for the night. I say onto the bed because we may not have the strength to get under the covers. Boy are we getting old...
Tomorrow, back to Disneyland and our final day of this adventure. But for now must get some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz ........
Us (and the puppies too!)
