7/20/11 - Happiest Place on Earth

It's been a while...but we visited Disney today.  Star Tours has re-opened...and Nathan is tall enough, so I thought we'd go....grab some fast passes and enjoy the new ride.  Sadly, by the time we got there at noon....all the fast passes were already gone, so we had to wait.  It was a full 1 hour and 30 minutes before we got on the ride.  I think this was the longest I had ever waited for any ride at Disneyland...ever.  I feel very fortunate that I have Nathan for a child, because the wait was really easy with him.  He didn't complain once...just enjoyed the sights and sounds at Disney as we winded our way around the muggy, HOT, and twisty cue.  In the end, he just loved the ride and talked about it over and over. 

Here are a few snaps from our Star Tours experience.

We finally made it inside.  Here Nathan is watching the movie playing in the inside portion of the line.

Nathan picked this one as the photo of the day.  Still in line.

And a few more snaps cause...well, it's pretty rare for me to have an actual camera at Disney, so I used it.

  1. I'm so glad you had a good day -- and that you have a good child to wait in line with. I remember the first time I took him to Disneyland with me -- by myself. Rich was so concerned I wouldn't be able to keep up with him, but he stayed with me, held my hand, and was such a good, thoughtful boy. He deserves frequent Disney Days!
