Barry's 33rd at Disneyland!

Well the plan for LA all along was for Barry to be there on his birthday. And after two lazy days by the pool, what better place to celebrate than at the "happiest place on earth"! The parks here are much smaller than in Florida, so we decided to get a park hopper, so we could do Disneyland and California Adventure all in one go. The parks were quite quiet, so actually got round all the rides we wanted between 9am and 3pm. We managed Soarin' twice, which is a cool gliding simulator over California, plus some LA only rides like Monsters Inc., India Jones Adventure and California Screamin' roller coaster. We wanted to do the Nemo ride, but the queue was over 2hrs for that, as it was new!!

After all the rides, we crossed back over the road to the hotel for a splash in the pool, before heading back for the evening shows. We saw the original Electrical Parade in California Adventure, which brought back memories of when we saw it as a family in the 80's. We then crossed back to Disney to see the "Remember... Dreams Come True" firework display to music, which was superb, and also see Mickey battle his imagination in "Fantasmic!" special effect bonanza!! Needless to say we we're quite knackered after all that!!
