It was freezing(44 degrees when we landed at Long Beach airport). Arrived at Disney shortly after it opened at 8am and on our walk down Main Street we saw a Starbucks. Yay! A selfie in front of the Castle with our Starbucks!
It was pretty empty shortly after 8 am in the morning, but what beautiful day! The park is decorated with Christmas theme.
Our first ride the Matterhorn. There are two routes, one is slow, the other is fast. The lines were so short, we did both. It was cold on the ride and we didnt' get wet. Happy people selfie!
Our second ride, Space Mountain. Lindsey, hold on to your purse.
Our third ride. Star Tours.
New in Star Tours ride, 3 D glasses and new scenario. Wow! Cool!
Our fourth ride, Pirates of the Carribean! Lindsey is ecstatic!
Lindsey don't be scared!
Walking through New Orleans Square on our way to the Haunted Mansion.
Our fifth ride, the Haunted Mansion decorated for Christmas.
Our sixth ride, the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad with Fast Pass. Woot!
As the train takes us up the hill.
We survived the ride!
Our seventh ride, the Mad Tea Party!
This is how you spin your cup.
I went in my own cup so Lindsey and Wayne could spin as fast as they wanted in their own cup. Waited as the Disney crews work on a non-working green cup behind Wayne.
Play the video as they spin.
Play this video for more spinning.
Now we can eat! Here's a Mickey Mouse pretzel!
Our eighth ride, the Disneyland Railroad. Exhaustion finally sets in after being up since 4am so we decided to ride the Disneyland Railroad cars that went around the park. Maybe take a little snoozer;-)
Finishing up our pretzel so we can take a nap as the slow train winds around the park before we get to the Indiana Jones ride.
Our 9th ride! Thanks to Linds for helping us with Fast passes. Whooshed through the lines at the Indiana Jones Adventure ride.
The long path through the tunnel.
Finally in our car for the fun bumpy ride!
The midday crowd scene in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle. On our way to the entrance to greet Dominic and the gang.
At last, Dominic's first visit to Disneyland ever! Here posing with Daddy and Mommy!
Awe! Dominic got buttons! Yay!
Dominic also got his first Mickey Mouse hat with his name on it! Yay!
An overhead group selfie.
On our way to Main Street we saw several Disney characters scattered in the Square. Dominic's choice was to greet Mickey! Yay, his wish came true!
Selfie down Main Street with Lindsey, Unko Wayne, Dominic, Mommy, Daddy, Diego, Jeanette, Dylon, and Tyson.
