California Adventures! Day 4

Today was our first day inside of Disneyland. We started out the day at the very front of Gate 13 (of course!) and quickly made our way to the end of Main Street where we waited for the rest of the park to open. We made great time, standing in line for no more than 10 minutes on most of the rides.

All in all, today was a very magical day. We had several impromptu character interactions which included following some princesses around the castle, being kidnapped by Storm Troopers (I kid you not!) and strolling down Main Street with Mickey Mouse to create the perfect ending to what might just be the perfect day!

Our Day in a Nutshell:

Peter Pan's Flight
Mad Tea Party

Indiana Jones
Tarzan's Treehouse
Jungle Cruise
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
Laughing Stock Company at The Golden Horseshoe

Jedi Training Academy
Kidnapped by Storm Troopers

Mickey's Soundsational Parade
Casey Jr.'s Circus Train
Strolled Down Main Street with Mickey Mouse

Walked back to the hotel with sore feet, tired kids and one delightfully happy family!

We were the first people to the end of Main Street at the beginning of the day. 

Star Tours was a much anticipated ride. Titus loved it a ton, and I think Josh loved it even more than Titus. It was a little too bumpy for my liking, but it was fun to experience with the boys!

We randomly ran into a couple of princesses headed toward the castle. They were very friendly and talkative. We don't usually see them roaming around in the park so this was a special treat. 

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!

Both kiddos got to train at the Jedi Academy today!

Then we randomly got kidnapped by a pair of Storm Troopers. They made us all put our hands in the air and paraded us through Tomorrowland. 

Then they took pictures with each of their captures!

Josh was so excited to get this picture with them!

At the end of the day we were strolling down Main Street and lo and behold, Mickey just came up and grabbed our hands and started strolling with us. He even kissed mine and Leeann's hands! What a perfect ending to a delightfully magical day!
