What better way to recap our 4 day trip to Disneyland for the Half Marathon Weekend than through photos. :)
If you're looking for race recaps, here are my recaps for the Inaugural Disneyland 10k, Disneyland Half Marathon 2013, and my thoughts on the Dumbo Double Dare.
We flew down to Orange County on Friday morning.
We went to California Adventure first to hang out with my cousin's kids while they rode Radiator Springs Racers.
A little afternoon snack. Beer not recommended before a race, but hey, it's Disneyland! :)
Toy Story Midway Mania. I beat Dearest every time. ;)
I got my fried green tomato sandwich w/ sweet potato fries at the Hungry Bear Restaurant! So yummy!
One last photo in the Court of Angels at Disneyland. We took a very similar picture on our first visit to Disneyland together. The court is such a peaceful and quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of the park. It's super romantic, I'm sure tons of people have gotten engaged here. Sadly it's going to close as the area will become part of the private Club 33 when it expands. I'll definitely miss coming here.
Some of the souvenirs I brought back!
My 2013 Grad!
Dearest was so great with our little cousins. I just know someday he's going to be a great dad. :)
Mickey and the Magical Map. Fun show with great music, but not quite as good as previous shows or the Aladdin Musical in California Adventure.
Our flight out of Orange County was delayed for 3 hours, so we passed the time with beer, wings and fries. I just ran a 10k and half marathon, so I need to replenish, right? :)
Orange County has a city noise ordinance stating that planes cannot take off past 10pm. We boarded the plane around 9:45 and all the flight attendants were quick to tell us that if we were not "wheels up" by 10pm, we would be staying the night. There was one passenger that kept fiddling with his bag in the over head compartment and I'm surprised no one jumped up and forced him to sit down. As we taxied out on the tarmac at 9:55p, we had to wait for four, yes FOUR, planes to land. Time was ticking by and everyone was getting antsy. Finally, the engines roared and we began our take off, even though it was past 10pm. Thank you, Southwest! :)
My hubby surprised me with this ornament! He was acting all weird, saying he was looking for something in a store, but wouldn't tell me what it was. After running around Disneyland, he finally found it and surprised me with it. He was going to wait until Christmas (we add a new ornament to the tree every year), but he couldn't wait. We are both terrible at holding back surprises. ;)
My favorite ride is Big Thunder Mountain Railroad- so perfect!
Hope you enjoyed the recap! :)
