California Trip Part One

California here we come...
My brother Kellen and his wife Brigette took part in the give a day of service/Disneyland ticket program and invited us to vacation with them. Kellen planned the whole thing and made sure that absolutely everything was perfect, and it was.

We stayed at the Camelot Inn & Suites which is literally right across the front gates of Disneyland. On our balcony we could see the Matterhorn to our right and the Hollywood Tower of Terror to our left, not to mention, the fireworks show. It was perfect!
The bathroom towels were even folded so cute.

The night we got into Anaheim it happened to be David's birthday(25). He chose to eat at the ESPN Zone in Downtown Disney. It was a lot of fun and right up his alley for being such a sports fanatic.
The t.v. on our table had many screens of different sports playing to choose from, even 1980's WWE wrestling :)
David's smokehouse bacon burger with a house salad
My very delicious chicken wrap with baked potato

The first night we got there, Disneyland closed at 8pm so around 10pm a lot of people weren't really around Downtown Disney, great for photo opportunities.

Disney's Halloween Festivities

We got onto Space Mountain first. It is my favorite ride, and even spookier with the added Halloween sounds and ghosts.

Pirates of the Caribbean. Yo Ho Yo Ho a Pirate's Life For Me!

Pirate Island, first time going over for us. It is surprisingly really fun.

California Adventure
Woody was friendly...
...until he wasn't (an accidental picture turned out pretty hilarious)!

Main Street at Disneyland

Eating the chili bread bowls is a tradition for David and I, so delicious!

Walking around California Adventure

World Of Colors was the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my life.
It was the perfect way to end the day!
We had the most amazing day. I guess you could say it really couldn't have gone better. We went to Six Flags Magic Mountain the following day but didn't take pictures because it really would have just been a hassle and not too magical. Going to Six Flags after being at Disneyland was kind of a downer, the place is dirty and trashy. The Disney company really does a tremendous job of keeping up on everything to ensure you have the most magical and wonderful experience. Have you noticed there aren't any insects at Disneyland? Not one. No bees, ants, flies or anything. It is a mystery. It was a great weekend and I will be posting pictures of Newport which we visited that Sunday (I promise there won't be as many pictures).
