Disneyland (Day 1)

I {heart} Disneyland!! It is my favorite place on earth! I love taking our kids there and seeing their eyes light up as we enter the park and the smiles on their faces until they put their heads on the pillow at night! I LOVE it!! We got to go the second week of February. It was a dream come true! The weather was PERFECT the whole time we were there and the crowds were minimal. I couldn't have asked for anything else to make this one of our very best vacations - EVER!!

We ordered Disney pins off Ebay before the trip and let them divvy them out the night before going into the park. They all loved trading pins with the cast members.

Star Tours was our first ride and we all loved it. The last time we were here it was being renovated and they have all new videos...infact, they have 54 different ways you can experience the ride now. We went on this ride many more times because it was easy to get fast passes and everyone in the family loved it.

Next we went on Autopia and I LOVED it! Levi drove and I just enjoyed the ride. Yep, that's me - thoroughly loving the fact that I am IN Disneyland!!

Andrew went on Matterhorn Bobsleds in a different car since there was so many of us. It wasn't a favorite of Levi's but the rest of us really enjoyed it!

Then we divided up so the bigger kids and I could go on Indiana Jones and the Haunted Mansion while Nathan and Levi went on the Pooh ride and saw Tigger.

We were getting a little tired so we decided to get on the Disneyland Railroad and head over to Fantasyland Theatre to watch Mickey's Magical Map. We all really enjoyed this show. We enjoyed cotton candy and popcorn as we watched the show.

(These pictures were actually taken on Friday when the parade was earlier in the day. We watched this same parade four times. Just can't get enough of all the characters!)
