Disneyland Resorts includes Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventures. Kellen and I decided to head to Disney California Adventures first, because we wanted to get a Fast Pass for the new Radiator Springs ride. We went straight to Cars Land and got in line for a Fast Pass, but unfortunately they ran out when we were about ten people away from getting them.
We beat the heat by watching a live performance of Aladdin that was just incredible. The Genie was hilarious and he completely stole the show. It was a musical, just like the movie, and they were all great at their musical performances.
Kellen’s favourite ride was the Star Tours in Disneyland Park. We got a Fast Pass for it, so we didn’t have to stand in line forever, and the 4D experience was awesome. Kellen was thrilled to be so close to the “real” C-3PO! It is a fantastic experience for little kids to adults, and one of the highlights for us. We also came across some other Star Wars characters in the park.
We also had a chance to ride a huge Mickey wheel, submerge in a submarine, visit a futuristic home, watch a parade and we picked up a couple of souvenirs to take home to the rest of the family. It was a great day at Disneyland!
