WOW, What a day!!!
Disneyland is THE most magical, wonderful and happy place 😊 Stu and I always said, even before having our girls that we would love to take our kids to Disneyland one day. We have made that dream and goal come true today 😊 Disneyland definently lives up to it's name, well and truely.
We arrived at Disneyland and headed to the carpark to park, it in itself was just about the length of Chermside - absolutely massive and it was 6 levels high!!!. Then we had to walk down to an area where we lined up to hop on a motorised tram which took us to Disneyland itself. After entering we were blown away by the sheer size of it. (we still are) We headed to Fantasyland (one section of Disneyland) where we first went to the tea cup ride. (I went to Disneyland when I was 2 or 3 and this is one of the only rides I can remember) It was a real buzz to be on there with my girls 26 or 27 years later! We then went on to the "It's a Small World" boat ride which takes you through dolls from all
over the world. This was the other ride I could remember from my "toddlerhood" and dad made me promise that we would go on it. It was amazing 😊 😊
From there we headed to Mickey's ToonTown where we looked around Mickey's house, saw the Chip 'n Dale Treehouse, got a photo taken of the girls with Mickey Mouse, Stu, Danika and Zavanna went on Gadget's Go Coaster and we also went onto Donald's boat. Unfortunately we lost Danika's camera whilst there (my fault) and it hadn't shown up at lost and found so I now owe her a new camera 😞 Bugger..It didn't dampen our day by any means though.
Next we went to the Disney Fantasy Faire where there was a show happening with all the Disney Princesses, the girls couldn't keep their eyes off it. We stopped for a snack of baked stuffed potato, bratwurst with sauerkrauet (can't spell!!) and snack packs for Danika and Zavanna.
A bid buzz for myself personally was brushing past Gwen Stefani in one of the many souvenir shops in Disneyland, I couldn't believe my eyes. Stu asked her for a photo but she more or less ignored him - can't blame
her though, she was there with her husband and 2 boys and there would be nothing worse than going somewhere like that and being harrassed by people constantly. A big excitement for me :D :D :D
There is so much to do at Disneyland, it is just unbelievable, we also went on the Pinocchio's Daring Journey, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh ride, Sailing Ship Columbia, New Orleans Square, Jungle Cruise, Tarzan's Treehouse. There are also a lot of other rides to be had there as well, but there are soooo many people there that some of the lines are just too long to line up at. In saying that, I have to say that for the volume of people that attend Disneyland every day they do a fantastic job of moving the lines along and getting you through fairly quickly. We still have 2 days at Disneyland and will be making the most of the rest of our time there - there is still so much to see and do there. Quite overwhelming really.
We headed back to our hotel at about 6.30 pm and on the way stopped in and got a pizza from Cortina's - it
was an amazing smoked chicken pizza, all 16 inches of it!!
Whilst ordering our pizza we got talking to a man named Don who has lived in the area for 28 years and has been going to this pizza shop the whole time. He owns a Holden VE GTS R8 Commodore (Pontiac to the American's) and thanked us for producing the "best car ever."
A great end to and even better day. What will tomorrow bring........
