Disney 2012

On the day of Halloween we piled in the car and headed for California. We got to our hotel at about 6pm, and before we even unpacked, we headed out to a local neighborhood, dressed the kids in their costumes, and let them go Trick-or-Treating.

Then the next morning we headed to Disneyland. Sophie brought a notebook and pen and got some autographs, including Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Minnie, Pluto, and Chip & Dale.


 We totally got photobombed by the Queen of Hearts.
She knew what she was doing too. It was awesome.

 Finding Nemo Submarine ride.
All three kids were fascinated.

And here are some ToonTown highlights. Sam loved any ride or toy with a steering wheel. That kid loves his cars.

 This is the ONLY picture I have with all 3 kids in it from the whole trip.

And speaking of cars, we got to go to the new CarsLand - it was so great! Far and away Sam's favorite ride was Mater's Junkyard Jamboree.


We were sad that he was too short to try the big Radiator Springs Racers. He would have loved it - we thought it was such a fun ride! And here's my favorite picture from the trip:
 Sam basically stood frozen like this for an entire minute.
"Oh me and Lightning? Yeah, we're best buds."

Sophie's favorite ride is still Tower of Terror, which my stomach only lets me go on once per vacation, and even that is pushing it. She probably went 5 times. She also really liked Big Thunder Mountain this time, but still very much does not enjoy Space Mountain (which was even scarier this time because it was decked out for Halloween - I don't blame her.).

We had a great time! Can't wait to go back in a few years!
