Friday morning we woke up in a Anaheim right across the street from Disney Land. Thankfully the girls got a lot of sleep Thursday night because we were on a mission to see and do everything we could at Disney in ONE day!
Once we got inside the gates of course we had to stop and take the family selfie (the first of many family selfies from the day) in front of the Disney sign.
We went to Disney World 3 years ago so I expected that Disney Land would look very similar however their Sleep Beauty castle is just a little smaller than Cinderella’s castle.
Off to our first ride of the day… I HATE roller costers but I had to suck it up and ride all the rides. I am glad I did because we all had a blast!
note to self – don’t every let Abigail drive!!!
or let her be your passenger. hehe!!!
of course we had to find some Disney Princesses
Then we were off to ride some more rides.
and have fun with the crazy animals in the Tarzan tree.
After Splash Moutain we went back to the hotel to freshen up and relax before dinner and fireworks. Once we got back to the park Kate was so excited because Minnie Mouse was in the front taking pictures.
Then it was time to put her driving skills to the test. She did a great job.
one last family picture in front of the Disney Castle.
We found our parade spot about 1.5 hours before it started. Needless to say we had a lot of time to kill!! Danny was able to take the girls on a ride and then came back with YUMMY Dole Whips for everyone!!! Our Disney trip was now complete!
Finally the parade started…
It was so amazing!!! These pictures do not do it justice.
We were all exhausted from a full and busy day at Disney but we had a wonderful time and made so many memories. I don’t think the girls will every forget this vacation!! – MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
I found this video on youtube of the wonderful firework show. AMAZING!!!
