We eat breakfast and then head out to California Adventure Park. We have to wait to get through all the security. We finally got in. Dad heads to get Fast Passes to the Cars Racers ride. Then we go on Mater's Junkyard Jamboree ride and then Soarin' Over California. This time we were in the front row so we went up higher in front of a big screen. The ride rocks you back and forth so it actually feels like you are flying. It is really fun. Next we went to the big roller coaster - California Screamin' and me and my Mom wait 10 minutes to get on. Then me and my Dad wait 10 minutes to get on the roller coaster (yes, I get to go again). Next we head to the Cars ride with our Fast Passes and this time we won the race. Woohoo! My first victory, yes finally! After the cars ride, we had some lunch. Then we went on the Monsters Inc ride and went to meet Olaf. Next we went to get some ice cream. I got a chocolate and vanilla swirl ice cream cone. It was delicious! Then we get 4 Fast Passes to go on the big roller coaster again - me and my Dad and then me and my Mom. While we do that Kenzi gets to ride the Carousel and Mickey's Fun Wheel (Ferris Wheel). Then we go and do the Ariel ride. After that, we leave the park. I had a long and a fun day. My cousins are in the pool when we come back to the hotel. We have tacos for supper and ice cream for dessert. Now it is time for bed.
We go up the elevator to my Nana and Papa's. Then we go to Disneyland. Today is the first day of Disneyland's 60th Anniversary and Disneyland is open from 6am to 6am tomorrow - 24 hours to celebrate. Yes, the Matterhorn is working! It is 60 minutes to wait - for at least 25 minutes the ride wasn't working because somebody dropped their selfie stick. Me and my Dad saw Captain America and Thor. They were awesome! Then we got on the Matterhorn, finally, it was worth the wait. Next we went to Big Thunder Railroad and after that, me, my Mom and Brooke waited 70 minutes for Space Mountain. Then Astro Blasters where you shoot Zurg targets. Then we do a Fast Pass for Star Tours. It is so fun. Then for supper, we go to the Rain Forest Café. Glad we did because there were HUGE line-ups for getting in to the park. Then we walked a long way back to the hotel. They weren't letting any more people into Disneyland so the line-ups were humungous and not moving trying to get through security and into Dinseyland. When we got back to the hotel, we had yummy, yummy ice cream...mmmm. Then we see the fire works from the roof top of our hotel. They were glorious, beautiful and awesome! It was another tiring day.
I walk up to my Nana and Papa's place. What is there for breakfast? There is bagel, cereal, toast and that's it. So I choose bagel with peanut butter, it is so good. Then my Mom, Dad and Nana go to do some shopping. Me and Kenzi and my Papa go down to the pool - out the door of the lobby. Into the gate of the pool - we swim and we swim. It is so fun. Me, I pull Kenzi by her life jacket to the other end of the pool. Me and Papa played the ball game again. My sister kept throwing rings to the bottom of the pool and I have to get them. Then I go up and play games in the hotel room. It is really fun - we have to try and get the squishy balls in the middle of the diving rings. After lunch, we go back down to the pool (my Mom and Dad and Kenzi and I). My cousins came too, later. My Dad threw me up in the air and I belly flopped in the pool. After a long day of swimming I fell asleep instantly.
My family go up to my Nana and Papa's room. We play and we play some more until it is time to go. We start our way there. We arrive at Goofy's Kitchen. Hmm, why are we here? I don't know. We are here for breakfast. So we get our picture taken with Pluto, Goofy, Minnie, Chip and Dale, that's it. I eat strawberries, bacon, sausage, hot dog with a bun, watermelon, cantaloupe and honey dew.
When breakfast is done, we go to Disneyland again to go on rides. I went on Space Mountain, Star Tours, Astro Blasters and Splash Mountain. My sister went on Rockets and Star Tours. We both saw characters, including Storm Troopers, walking around the park. My sister also went on the Dumbo ride. On Splash Mountain, I sat in the very front and I got soaked when we did the 50 foot drop! My shorts felt heavy because they were so wet and my feet squished when I walked. Next we all went on the Winnie the Pooh ride. It was cold in some spots.
Next we went over to California Adventure Park and we saw part of a parade. Lightning McQeen, Mater, The Incredibles, Toy Story, Finding Nemo and A Bug's Life were all part of the parade. There were some guys who had metal bouncy things on their feet that made them bounce really high up. It looked like a pogo stick. The last ride we did was Soarin' over California. For this ride, you sit in big swings and are lifted up close to a big screen so that it feels like you are flying over parts of California. In one part, it even smelled like oranges. It was another fun ride day!
"I wonder what ride we are going to go on first today?"
"Dumbo first. And the tea cups second."
"I want to go on the BIG roller coaster"...and we did! - but not first
Today we went to California Adventure Park across from Disneyland. The first ride I went on was with my sister and Dad - Mater's Junkyard Jamboree. Next we went to the Monster's Inc ride. There was a TV on the side of the car that was part of the ride and telling us about the human that was loose in the monster world. Next, we went on the Radiator Springs Racers ride. Here we raced the other car that ended up beside us. Both cars sped around the race track trying to be first. Our car ended up second. But we still were fast. Next, we headed to the big roller coaster -California Screamin'. Me and Dad and my Mom bet on if I scream like a girl on the roller coaster - they will get a chocolate bar from me. If I did not scream like a girl, they will give me a chocolate bar. Guess what? On the first drop, I screamed like a girl. No chocolate bar for me :(
Next we went on the Ferris Wheel (Mickey's Fun Wheel) and the last final moment when it felt like our car was going to fly off into the water, my and Mom had to shut our eyes. Thankfully, we made it off the ride safe and sound. Then we got a blue-raspberry slurpee and I drank it all. Next, we went on the Grizzly River Run. It was a ride that you can get super wet on and can bump into other tubes. Then we walked home early and had left overs for supper, from two nights ago. It was sort of good.
When I woke up, my heart burst with speed, pounding so hard. I say to my sister, "Today is the day for what?" We're going to Disneyland to ride some rides!! So we eat breakfast at my Nana and Papa's place. Then we start walking. We are here! Hip hip hooray! Yes, finally!! So we make this plan: Kenzi, my sister, goes to a Royal makeover. She got her hair done like Elsa. At the same time, I walked to Jedi training and Darth Vader and Darth Maul were there. It was really fun and I got to fight Darth Maul with my light sabre. I won! We also went on The Haunted House, Red Roller Coaster, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Autopia, Star Tours, Star Tours again and Big Thunder Mountain. The Matterhorn is my favourite ride, but apparently it was not working. It looked like there was something wrong with the seats because I saw workers working with the seats pushed up. My legs were exhausted. After that we went back to the hotel and I was done! I fell asleep instantly!
I woke up at 6:30, 7:30 your time. So I got dressed. Every day so far I have worn a tank top because the weather has been nice and warm. We went up to Nana and Papa's place and I had Raisin Bran. Me and my family went to the pool at 3:00pm. We played tag and my Dad gave us a ride on his back up above the water and down under the water. And we played getting the rings under the water. We played catch with the squishy balls and monkey in the middle. Then we came back and me and my cousin played Uno. Last time I played her I beat her, this time I beat her again.
Ugh, what time is it? 7:30. Holy moly, that only means one thing - it is 8:30 in Calgary. What shirt am I going to wear today? I am so excited! I am going to wear this shirt, no this shirt, no, no, this shirt. We go down to the lobby and Mom has to write first name, last name, phone number, and email on a paper. Mom is done so we go eat our breakfast. I got sausage, scrambled eggs, and then pancakes. Then we see a presentation. The guy passed Dad cotton candy but I intercepted it. Then we go down to the pool and swim. Me and Papa played a game - if the ball goes past you it's a goal. My Papa won - 15/5. Then at supper my Uncle and Auntie and cousins arrived. We all had supper together. After supper, my cousin and I drew pictures and wrote in our notebooks and played on iPads. Then it was bedtime.
I am at home doing my normal routine. Then my mom and dad tell me to sit on the couch they ask what do you want to do today we say tommy k place. But they said Disneyland ya. Then we drive to the airport we get Tim Hortons but the line up was like 30 mins so we still got our sandwiches. Then we get on the plane and we go to our seats. I watched Paddington and The Hunger Games Mocking Jay Part 1. Then we are at Los Angeles. The plane ride was 3 hours. Then we wait for our bus and we go to Anaheim. Dad and I are thinking about seeing an Anaheim hockey game. We got to our hotel. At night, we go to the roof and see fireworks from Disneyland. They were BEAUTIFUL! Then we go to our hotel room and go to bed. I was exhausted!
