Southern California Trip Part 2- Disneyland!

The next day of our awesome trip, we headed down to Anaheim to go to DISNEYLAND! Melissa's favorite place! :) Here's a video of the Sleeping Beauty Castle!

Melissa gets a quick pic with Bert from Mary Poppins and Alice and the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland.

Here's Brandon in front of Splash Mountain, just before we got, really soaked. Well, actually, just Brandon got really soaked. We were in the very front, and lucky for Melissa, she had a hoodie sweatshirt to cover her face and hair from getting wet. Melissa stayed mostly dry, while Brandon got a face-full of Splash Mountain!

Melissa with her Fairy Godmother! ;)

On our way over to Star Tours (LOVE that ride!) we stumbled upon a Jedi battle!

Cute kids! Fighting Darth Vader is something they'll probably remember forever!

While we were there, we also noticed a ride neither of us had ever been on or bothered to really check out. The ride was Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, and we're sure glad we did try it! It's like Mr. Toad's Wild Ride and laser tag combined! You get to blast lasers at all of these targets and while riding it and help Buzz defeat the evil Zurg! Here's a fun video of the awesomeness of the Disneyland technology! I love these robots!

Here's Small World all lit up and pretty! This ride is classic! It was also neat to see that they added some Disney characters into the ride, like Cinderella, Ariel, Lilo and Stitch, Nemo, Mulan and Mushu, Peter Pan, and a whole lot more!

Now, you can't go to Disneyland without seeing Mickey and Minnie, although we kinda did. BUT, we did get this fun video of them dancing in the parade that night! Check it out! Mickey has some pretty good moves too! :)

After a long and awesome day at the Happiest Place on Earth, we went to dinner at Bubba Gumps! It was yumalicious and we ate lots of shrimp!

We had a great time, and loved going to Disneyland again! Maybe we'll have a few more people with up when we go next time. ;)
