Disney & Acquarium (Day 4 & 5)

August 8, 2009

Friday, we started with the character breakfast at Goofy’s Kitchen (Disneyland Hotel). The kids got autographs (or audio-graphs, if you are my son) from Pluto, Goofy, Chip, Dale and Cheppetto. We managed to fill all but 3 pages of their books. They met a lot of characters.

We went back to Disneyland for the morning. The kids wanted Mickey Mouse ear hats and they picked out “lovies.” We spent the rest of the day at California Adventure and saw a great stage version of Alladin. Highly recommended.

Today, we went to the Aquarium of the Pacific and toured the Queen Mary in Long Beach. Tomorrow we go touristy with brunch and a bus tour of LA.

While this has been a ridiculous amount of fun, we’re tired (in case you couldn’t tell from this post). I’m looking forward to not walking around tommorrow and sleeping in our own beds when we go home on Monday.

There’s something to be said for going back to the same place every year. You have the luxury of taking it slow. After all, you’ve probably done it a million times already and could always do it next year. Trips like this… it all needs to be done now and that takes a lot out of everyone.
