Rose Bowl Trip-Part Nine

Yesterday, I left off mid-day at DISNEYLAND!  So, I’m picking right up where we left stopped.  We paused mid-day to change things up and switch to California Adventure.  Disneyland makes park hopping so easy!

We bumped into Pluto as we made our way around this park.

Pluto got down and high-fived Britt to get her to warm up.  As we walked off, Ebby Lee was like-that was SO awkward.  The photographer just kept taking our picture but of course, Pluto wasn’t saying anything.

The Redwood Creek Challenge Trail was one of our favorite spots and then we followed it up with a visit to Santa Goofy.

Golden Zephyr…

And Jumpin’ Jellyfish.

While the big kids and Tab rode something, Britty and I found a great parade watching spot.

Her little hand waving was so sweet.

A few minutes later…Mickey arrived!

I always think the swings look like no big deal until I get up there and am worried about that wire holding me and my kiddos up!

That Pixar Pier area is absolutely stunning all lit up!

And all of us voted the Incredicoaster as hands-down the BEST RIDE at Disneyland!

It was stunning!
I hadn’t made any dining reservations because I thought we’d want to soak in as many attractions as possible since we were cramming two parks in on one day.  Turns out we started hitting a wall around 5:00 so we hopped onto the app and grabbed a dining time at a local resort.

Walking to dinner…which happened to be exactly what we needed.  We left the crowds for a super casual relaxing dinner and it perked us all right up.

Back at Disneyland, the Christmas tree was absolutely gorgeous.

And I really should have taken a picture in front of the castle for you, but I’m certain we were all oohing and aaahing every time we walked by that a picture just never crossed my mind.

Buzz Lightyear  Astro Blasters…any guess on the winner?


Want to know the ride we all voted Most Surprising {in a good way}?  The Finding Nemo Submarine!

What two exhausted parents look like after a day at Disneyland.  🙂

The next day after a few delays it was time to catch our flight back to Texas.

See ya next time!

Oh California, you were so so good to us.  This trip will forever go down in each of hearts as one of our favorites.  

Thank you so much for following along.  If you have any questions related to the game or the trip, please send them to or leave a comment on this post.  I have a Q and A post scheduled geared toward all the questions around our trip.

Thank you!
