Disneyland and California Adventure ...

We started our day with a character breakfast at the Paradise Pier hotel ...  Mickey's Surfs Up!

This was so much fun and we had plenty of time with the characters ... great interaction. Fun, fun, fun!

This was Jane's first time at a Disney theme park. Kay, Lori and I were all so excited to show her the "Disney adventure". I always love the first look down Main Street at the castle.

Now, to be honest, I'm used to Disney World and the huge, beautiful castle ... so I was a bit surprised at Disneyland's castle.  I had to keep remembering that this is the "original" Disneyland and as I was a small child the castle did seem huge. However, we were at Disneyland and had the most beautiful weather and fun ahead of us!

We then went to Disneyland, walked over to California Adventure for a few hours, and then back to Disneyland.  One of our absolute favorite rides was Toy Story Mania ... I wasn't surprised since that is one of my favorites at Disney World! The California Scream roller coaster has got to be one of my all time favorite roller coasters that I have ever been on. Lori and I had to ride that twice!

We finished the day with a great meal in Downtown Disney. I can honestly say we were as tired as can be and couldn't wait to relax back at our room.

What a wonderful day with the most amazing friends. Thanks Jane, Kay & Lori for a fun & exciting day! :)
