Yesterday was the first day that our annual passes were not blacked out this summer, so we spent the entire day at Disneyland! Emily has grown up SO much, it just amazes me. She loves the rides. Laughs and squeels and wiggles like crazy during them. She loves Small World and Dumbo. The only one she doesn't like it Snow White and Pinocchio. She is better with some characters now, but definitely doesn't like most of them. She didn't mind Eeyore, even reached out to touch him. As you can see in the pictures though, Mickey was a whole 'nother story! LOL She did NOT like him. Poor Mickey! We tried using the wheelchair boat for Jungle Cruise, rather than transferring her and holding her on our laps. We won't be doing that again. She likes to snuggle in and giggle during this ride normally, but didn't love it on her own. And the speaker on the boat is right above the wheelchair spot, so it was super loud. She spent most of the Jungle Cruise covering her ears. She didn't fuss though, so it must not have been too bad. :) We stayed for Summer Fantasmic, and the wheelchair seating was horrible. We got front row, but were SO smooshed in that it was miserable. My legs hurt so bad sitting on the ground, and again - the speaker was right over the handicap seating. Emily screeched through-out the entire performace. It was an awesome show, but Emily hated it. I couldn't even take her out, we were so sardined. Luckily it was super loud, so she didn't bother anyone.
Okay, so that sounds like she was miserable all day. She wasn't! She loves going to Disneyland. She loves most of the rides, she loves walking around, she loves people talking to her and smiling at her. She really DOES like it. And Jacob loves it too of course. Shockingly, my husband even likes going and he always said he hated Disneyland! :)
I think we will be going back a few times over the next few weeks, before school starts. I can't believe summer is almost over!
