California Adventure

Welcome back to Disney California Adventure

I'm headed to this area today

California Screamin' was my destination

This coaster starts off with a launch

The train screams up this first hill

The coaster has a very famous loop (that used to be Mickey ears)

I really enjoy this ride.  I like the soundtrack and just how long it is

The Zephyr is a very old school styled ride

Parade time.  The pre-parade showcased Bolt

Here comes the real parade

The marquee float of the Pixar Play Parade

Here comes the Incredibles unit - Jack Jack is on top


Mr. Incredible

Finding Nemo

A Bug's Life

Toy Story unit

That's all - Thanks Mater!


Welcome back to Disneyland

I started off the day in Fantasyland at Alice in Wonderland

Oh no.  We're late - for a very important date

That's a big whale behind me

Mr. Toad's Wild Ride is an amazing dark ride

This is probably one of the craziest dark rides there is

This is an amazing carousel.  Definitely worth a spin

The next dark ride was Pinocchio's Daring Journey

I have to admit - they really put the DARK in dark ride on this one

Snow White's Scare Adventures is named correctly

My favorite dark ride is Peter Pan's Flight

You ride in suspended boats over the different scenes.

You can actually go inside the Castle - that's pretty neat

Let's head into ToonTown

Welcome to ToonTown

There's Chip and Dale's Nut House

Gadget's Go Coaster

Mickey and Minnie's houses

Goofy and Donald's houses

Let's head over that way

Time to take a spin on Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

I have a love/hate relationship with It's a Small World

The ride is very well done

However, the song features a theme song that is an earworm

You won't escape the ride without having the song stuck in your head

Heading around the Rivers of America to our next destination

Splash Mountain has a catchy theme song too


This is one water ride I don't mind reading 

Matterhorn time

Next we took a ride on Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters

To Infinity And Beyond!

Star Tours

Of course I want to take another spin on Space Mountain

Parade time

More characters

Another great day at the Happiest Place on Earth
