Day one was mostly taken up by transit. I arrived in LA at 8.44 and got to Hollywood where we were staying about 10, which is pretty good really!
They actually cleared us for USA arrival in Canada. What a great idea! Saves so much time at the other side.
Jay was pretty excited to see me – I would be too haha. She’d bought me a star saying ‘#1 Wife’ from the Hollywood walk of fame.
Friday we headed over to Anaheim after a quick look around Hollywood. It’s my second time visiting so I wasn’t too fussed.
Disney was awesome. We went straight into California Adventure Park for lunch in the Cars area at Flo’s V8 Diner. I had roast turkey with gravy, corn and baked beans.
We got fast passes to the cars ride, we were with a Disney employee so we just went straight in. It’s a new ride and the line was huge. Glad we got through how we did coz there was no way I was waiting in that!
We did a few more rides, Pirates of the Caribbean etc and had dinner at Cathay Circle before running back over to Disney for the fireworks. They were beautiful.
We were all exhausted after the fireworks so we headed back to the cars and I checked into my hotel where I had a big comfy bed all to myself just a few meters from the park.
Actually of you’re going to Disneyland, it’s a great hotel to stay at. The Best Western on Katella. Only about $100pn, big rooms, clean and safe, free wifi, breaky and so close.
