Disneyland- Day 3

25 Apr

After opting not to wait in line yesterday for 3 hours to see the princesses, Sadie and I wait at the gates at opening and proceed to run like lunatics through the park to the Princess Faire. We were 3rd of about a million little girls and their parents- very satisfying and almost no wait!
If it goes fast and spins, it’s totally her bag. So the Astro Orbiter (rocket ships that go up and down and ‘orbit’ a center pole at about 150 times the rate of Dumbo) is the ride she’d been drooling over for 2 days. It made Chris and I as dizzy as we’d anticipated.
Yup, more characters. And a princess no less. We’re working on filling those autograph books!

Elijah drives Autopia again. Another of his favorite rides. He’s figured out that, although he can’t see over the steering wheel, he can watch the car in front of us and copy the turns or turn according to the ‘right, left’ direction of his adult passenger.
Sadie checks out.

Tuck n’ Roll’s Drive ‘Em Buggies. These fit both of Elijah’s criteria for a good time- driving and crashing. This is one of his all time favorite rides.

Elijah hits Princess Dot’s Puddle Park and get’s completely drenched. He loved chasing the randomly spurting water jets and spent a LONG time here. We giggled nonstop just watching.

A drier boy.

Sadie and Elijah pose on a Mickey Mouse bench outside the park. These just crack Sadie right up.

Another day done. Off to the bus stop to head back to the hotel where the kids and I swam and Chris watched the Celtics kick some bootie in the first round of the play-offs. Go Green!

    good thinkin’, racing to the princesses first thing! I wonder how Cinderella feels about a “happily ever after” filled with endless droves of wee girls…

    Sorry you have to come back (for you) but happy (for me)!
