Disneyland Day One

Back to our regularly scheduled blogging. Anyhoo, as you all know, I started my Labor Day weekend early at Disneyland! We drove down on the 2nd & our first day in the park was the 3rd. You could say we spent almost a whole day in the park :P

Mickey with his 60th anniversary outfit

We started out at the park early since we had the magic hour! First off, I needed to oogle the 60th anniversary diamond Sleeping Beauty Castle. Look how gorgeous it is :)

Sleeping Beauty Castle

We hit up some of the Fantasyland rides since some lands weren't open during magic hour. We actually got quite a bit done I think! Lots of cute photo ops along the way!

Mr. Toad's ride

Off to Wonderland!

Spin that teacup, Vinh!

Vinh hates to admit that I can whoop his bum in a game. Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters to be exact! 151,400 to his 8,000, hah! :P

Read 'em & weep!

Mandatory castle photo

My main objective for this Disneyland trip was to get photos with all the 60th anniversary characters, watch the new fireworks & Paint the Night parade...basically not rush & just have fun!

We headed to California Adventure after stopping by the runDisney Expo to get away from the Disneyland crowds. We used Vinh's Disney visa card to get a free photo with Minnie :)


On Mater's ride, so fun!

Sailor Donald, so cute!

Vinh got back at me & whooped my behind at Toy Story Mania! 198,200 to my measly 109,300, boo :P

3D glasses, check!

I'm always level beaver...



Cathay Circle all blinged out

California or bust!

Flapper Minnie :)

We returned to Disneyland after lunch/happy hour at the hotel to wait for the Paint the Night parade. We basically headed back to the hotel after the parade since we needed to be up early for our 5K the next morning!
