So Dad and I were in Disneyland last week. And for the first time ever I went on the Mark Twain river boat ride. It was... unique. The Mark One, Mark Twain (or whatever) song was really weird. Not a fan. BUT pictures were to be had, so. That was good.
Santa's reindeer were also taking a vacation at the park before their big night (which, I guess, is actually tomorrow. Hmm. Hello, Christmas. Didn't expect to see you so soon?) Santa was there, too, but I didn't go see him. There were things to do, pictures to take, food to eat, rides to go on... And did you know that the year's pardoned turkey (you know, the one the President pardons on Thanksgiving day) gets to go live at Disneyland? Well, here is proof.
Also, Small World was decked out all cute and... lighty for the Holidays. Very festive. (There are videos, but the internet connection is too slow to post them online right now. You will all have to wait for a better connection to see those.)
And, you can't have a Disneyland post without a picture of the Castle. So, here is the castle. At night. With all the twinkly lights on (Disneyland is currently advertised as "Sparkling with Joy" until January 4th, if you are wondering).
Someday, hopefully soon, I will have a tripod and these will be clearer pictures. That will be fun.
We also went to the California Adventure park. They have a few rides there we really like, but also...
The Main Street Electrical Light Parade (presented by Sylvana)! I remember this fondly from my small child days. And Heart it. A lot.
Speaking of Disney, 2 weeks from Today (!) I have to report in. Scary! So, I guess, keep watching this space for fun Disney adventures and stories. It will be a wonderful 8 months.
