To Celebrate Ela's 5th birthday she wanted to go to Disneyland so we took her for her very first time. It was one of the greatest days ever. Tasha stayed home with Grandma Jerre so Ela could be the star for the day. We packed quiet a bit into our 13 hour day. Pinocchio, Dumbo, The Train, Pirates, Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, Jungle Safari, the Rockets, the World of Tomorrow, Visiting Princesses, It's a Small World, Mickey & Mickey's house, Minnie's house, Goofy's house, gadget's Coaster, saw fireworks, Fantasmic and The Haunted Mansion. Part of the reason we stayed so long was mostly because I didn't want the magic to end but Todd was finally the voice of reason and we left at 11:45.
We rode the teacups and Mr. Toad's Wild Ride directly after dinner which wasn't too bright.
Dumbo was the longest line we waited in (about 40 minutes) but all the rest were 30 minutes or less which was perfect.
I couldn't believe what a trooper Ela was. She was so brave and her favorite rides were all the roller coasters. She kept saying "I'm so glad we could come to Disneyland, thank you guys so much for taking me." I think it really is the Happiest Place on Earth.
