Okay, so if you don't realize it by now, We LOVE Disneyland!!! It's our favorite place to go and figure that while Courtney still loves to go on vacation with us, we should take advantage of it. In our defense, this is the first time we have ever gone just the three of us and it was a lot of fun. Here are a few of the highlights:
*Going on Splash Mountain for Courtney's first time
*Riding Tower of Terror for Courtney's first time(Candace is too scared to go on it) and loving it! She says it's her favorite ride and rode it three times in a row.
*Meeting new characters that we haven't met before like Pinocchio and Gepetto and Flynn and Rapunzel
*Of course, Meeting Mickey
*Christmas time is magical in Disneyland! It snows, there's a parade, Santa's there, Christmas trees everywhere
*Getting picked to help Andy's green army men with training
*Having her Dad paint her face and having everyone tell her how good it looked. She has the best Dad ever!
*Getting picked to dance in the High School Musical 3 show and it was the last show they ever did of that
*Finally meeting Jack and Sally. We have waited in line 3 different times that we've been there and then they leave and Courtney has been so sad that we have never got their autograph
*Visiting Pirate's Lair. Don't ask me why we haven't before when we have a daughter so obsessed with pirates but it was really fun!
*Pin trading. Seriously so much fun. Courtney loved to just look at every single worker's pins. She collected the baby pins(baby peter pan, baby abu, and so forth). They really are adorable and she spent more time pin trading than riding rides, I think.
She's hoping to be tall enough to ride Indiana Jones the next time we go. She isn't tall enough for that or Screamin California and she can't wait to ride them. We had the best time, even though is was super crowded. A pretty good Thanksgiving!
