  • Trip Report 6/17/08 - 6/18/08 Sarah's Disneyland & DCA Trip Report!

    Day 1

    I headed to Los Angeles the evening of June 15th and stayed in my Grandpa's house over night. I met CC at his house on June 16th and we spent the day touring Manhattan Beach. I got up at 6:00a.m. June 17th and we were out the door headed to Disneyland by 7:02a.m.


    I self-parked at the Paradise Pier Hotel and went to to front desk to register, no line at all. We got our keys and were told to check in at 3:00p.m.


    Hi Goofy!



    We caught the Monorail from Downtown Disney, about a 5 minute wait and a 8 minute ride. We were packed like sardines!


    A view from the Monorail:

    At this point we were 5 minutes late from breakfast reservations, Oscar remembered me! Breakfast was great, it was nice and sunny outside too! Of course, we both got the Oscar's Choice!



    We walked over to City Hall to get 2 birthday buttons [ we were celebrating our June birthdays] they only had stickers but oh well.



    Schools are out so we were expecting a large crowd and boy were we right!

    First off was the Matterhorn with a 30 minute wait, not bad at all.


    I don't know these people but I needed a pic of a bobsled...


    CC likes Big Thunder so we walked over to check out the line - 45 minutes but we might as well....



    The line moved faster and we were on in about 20 minutes.



    We rode Big Thunder twice in a row due to the short line and then it really started to heat up so we headed into what else but the TIKI ROOM!



    A 45 minute wait for Pirates, ugh! A delay made it an hour.



    We wanted a break so we had lunch at the Plaza Inn and after that we caught the train to the Main Entrance...



    A LONG wait for the train ended shortly as we got our hands stamped, cut through the Grand Californian Hotel and went over to the Paradise Pier to check into our room.

    Off to the pool for a couple of hours [waterslide!]



    We went to the room and I showered, it was about 8:20p.m.

    Then we headed to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner, I bought a card so instead of an hour and 1/2 wait it was 15 minutes. The food was decent, I got Chicken Fried Chicken and CC got Rambos Pasta {something like that}



    Complimentary birthday desserts:



    We went on the Matterhorn 3 times after this, the line was 10 minutes long.



    Then Big Thunder, once again - our 3rd time.

    A shot of Nemo @ night:


    At this point it was 11:59 so
    we headed to the lockers and picked up our stuff:


    A look at some plants on the way:



    Fruit!


    THE END!

    Day 2 is coming soon!

              Nice start to your trip report! Oh and I think the dish you are referring to at Rainforest Cafe is Rasta Pasta and it's my favorite!!
