Disney Mania Day One

Our Disney adventure started early Monday morning waiting in line in the parking garage after we realized the park didn't open until 10:00 and us getting there at 9:30 thinking we were running late.

We hit the park running and made our way over to Pirates of the Carribean and then to Splash Mountain. Joseph quickly decided he was not liking the roller coasters, Sam loving them, and Ben and Charley just along for the ride. Watching and listening to Sam and Ben's reactions to everything were so funny and priceless. While walking off Star Tours Ben looked at me with a worried face and asked, "Mom, how are we going to make it back to Earth, aren't we still on Endor?" Then as we were getting on Space Mountain Ben asked again, "Are we going to blast off?" The first day we made Joseph go on all the roller coasters much to his dismay. He complained and hid his face all day, Sam on the other hand couldn't get enough and wanted to go back for more. Ben even had his hands raised on Thunder Mountain while Joseph cried, "HOLD ON TO ME DAD!" Joseph enjoyed rides like Buzz Lightyear Blasters, Star Tours, the Submarine, and the Teacups. We have so many great pictures that I'll have to do a slide show at the end of all the posts.

For the first time ever at Disneyland I did not see anyone I knew. We did however meet people from Oregon and fellow C track families from the Jordan School District. We had a great time and ended the night at Denny's with hot chocolate and a brownie sundae across the street from our hotel. Ben was out before we even got to Denny's and the rest of the kids were asleep within seconds of hitting their pillows dreaming about the next days adventures.
