The weather was fantastic. The week started out a bit cool, but still sunny with blue skies. By Wednesday, it was hot and lovely. My instant Summer had arrived. :) For 5 days, we park hopped and hit all the rides we could, sometimes doing some up to 6 times! (Car Racers and California Screamin') We strolled, I ate Pineapple Whip and enjoyed the flowers, plants and Orange and Lemon trees. In the middle of Winter! We shopped and ate lovely meals at the Carthay Circle and Wine Trattoria and you really can't beat a hot dog and an Orange Fanta while strolling Buena Vista Blvd. Caught two parades and the wonderful show, Aladdin. And of course to finish out our visit; the Wonderful World of Color program and the Fireworks over the Castle. Nothing like watching Tinker Bell flying across the sky to cause a grown woman to cry.
It was going to be sad to leave the palm trees and sunshine and fun. But I overheard a man telling his daughter in the airport, "If we came to Disneyland every day, it wouldn't be special." He is right. You have to go away to appreciate just what a wonderful place it is. Thank you Walt Disney for all you have done. And for making my 35th wedding anniversary so very special. Always, Kit
