Today we spend the whole day at Disneyland and California Adventure Land. We headed there early and into Disneyland where we were amazed by the settings of each 'land'. It was the last day of their festive season and it was still decorated for the holiday season. Our first ride was a child's merry-go-round as we decided to jump on the first ride we saw. Everything in the park was amazing and in theme, the bathrooms were all in theme, each ride operator was in theme and anything you could think off. We got lucky with one ride as we walked by as soon as it opened and didn't have to wait in line, which became an issue for the day. Although it is the happiest place in earth, there were lots of people searching for the happiness, meaning hour long lines for any rides. We decided we would just enjoy the day and take in the scenery and try and find some street shows. We had a look in California Adventure Land where we did decide to go on the big ferris-wheel. We headed back for the street parade which was still the holiday seasons parade. After getting there an hour early we sat in what we thought would be a prime location, however, we found out we were in no-mans land as it was the small section of the round about the parade did not go directly pass. So we moved and still had good spots, next to the family member of one of the dances in the parade, which resulted in a group of ginger bread dancers posing just in front of us. After the parade we headed for an overpriced diner before heading to get a good location of the fireworks over Snow Whites Caslte. We got there a good hour early and were excited for the fireworks......... About 20minutes before an announcement came over informing us that it was possible the fireworks could be cancelled due to wind. We waited the extra 20 minutes hopeful but to no success. After that we headed home after 13 hours in the happiest place on earth. Although it was too busy and we didn't get any fireworks it was still a magic place to be. As our ticket allowed us entry for 2 days we were heading back the following day.
