The Happiest Place on Earth

On our way down the coast, we stopped at Disneyland. It had been a long time since I'd been there, so I was ready to do anything and everything.

The park was still decorated for Halloween. What??? Oh yeah, I'm way behind on the blog...

Phil was really looking forward to going through "It's a Small World," but unfortunately it was closed. But I did enjoy the topiary garden there.

This was my favorite.

Uh oh - looks like we're about to get eaten.

But we're still smiling, because after all, it is the happiest place on earth.

Sooooo cute!

We decided to go to a show, Mickey and the Magical Map, in the Fantasyland Theater. It was really, really good.

This guy sang for the lobster, while he was moving the lobster's mouth at the same time.

Just amazing. Here's a short video of it.

On to my favorite - Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

Then a lazy trip around the Rivers of America on the sailing ship, Columbia.

Hold your ears, we're being attacked and fighting them off with the cannon.

I liked Splash Mountain, even though I'm cringing a lot in the photo.

We went to another show at The Golden Horseshoe. It wasn't very good, except for the fact that Phil was in the whole play! Why do they always pick him?

Here's a 2-minute video of most of his part. He played a scary bear.

The Haunted Mansion had a special show in honor of Halloween, "The Nightmare Before Christmas."

At 4:00 it was time for the parade, led by the gang from "Frozen."

Oh good, some characters I recognize!

We saw Ariel from The Little Mermaid, and of course lots more. A great day!


  1. It looks like fun! I didn't see huge crowds in your photos you must have hit it at the right time!!

  2. So happy you both had fun! Uncle Phil is such a natural actor - a real ham!! ;) Happy Thanksgiving to you both!

  3. That was you dressed up like the Little Mermaid, wasn't it? ;c)

  4. Loved Phil's video. Glad he wasn't the woman. My favorites are the haunted mansion and pirates of the Carribean.


I love comments!
