My Day Off At The Most "Crowded" Happiest Place On Earth

Yesterday I did what I said I was going to do... I went to Disneyland.. along with the rest of Southern California and a couple of other states and throw in a few countries and there you have it... The most crowded "Happiest" place on earth... Seriously, it wasn't so bad... The decorations were great and festive and orange... and you can find a lot to talk about standing in line for Space Mountain for 1.5 hours.. Yep - it was so crowded the Fast passes sold out before 2:00 in the afternoon.. No kidding...

We did play it smart - right when we walked in the park - we headed for the Haunted Mansion and got Fast Passes - the line was like nothing I had ever seen... Every one was there to see Jack.. So we got our passes and then we went next door to Splash Mountain - we stood in line for about 40 minutes - we visited with some great people from Costa Rica - enjoyed that.. Good thing the late morning/early afternoon was warm because we got soaked... It was very funny... A wave literally came over the log ride and drenched us....

After Splash Mountain - we were able to walk right into the Haunted Mansion - Love it! I had never seen it decorated for Halloween and Christmas - There was a huge Jack (from the Night before Christmas) dressed as Santa - awesome.... I wish I could have taken a picture of that.... Now I know what all the fuss was about..

This was the best picture I could take - while walking into the Haunted Mansion - The park was so crowded that they sold out Friday and Saturday. I was too pooped to stay for the fireworks - so today after tonight's Bible study we went as a family for dinner and fireworks.... Since the husband does not have a pass we watched from the top of the parking garage.. Very nice... but next week - I'm watching from inside the park!

My favorite time to visit the park is during Halloween. There is just something so adorable about pumpkin shaped Mickeys' everywhere and my favorite is a visit to Jack's House. I've been a long time fan of Nightmare Before Christmas and love Jack!

Hope you all had a wonderful time and by the looks and sounds of it, you did.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
