Whirlwind Disney

We are currently on our way home (stuck in the Oakland airport because our flight is crazily delayed) from a super fun weekend Disneyland getaway! We had credit card points that needed to be used up, plus we've had a couple of months of insanity at the office, so it all added up to time for a vacation! Although I'm not sure I could call it a vacation since it was really just a crazy long weekend...but we all had so much fun and we definitely weren't ready to leave. 

We had amazingly warm (high 80's!) weather, along with minimal crowds at Disney and lots of fun Halloween decorations. We got to do the haunted mansion on Halloween, plus other fun Halloween "extras" on rides (like ghosts in Space Mountain!). We completely exhausted ourselves staying late both days we were in the park, but it was so worth it! Now, as we are in the middle of a 2.5 hour delay in Oakland, I'm kinda wondering if it really WAS worth it...but as I'm thinking back about the fun we had, it truly was! And I will try to remember that when we are driving home at 1:00 am...that feels like 2 am thanks to the time change last night.

Favorite rides:
Preston: Toy Story Mania and Buzz Lightyear
Bryton: California Screamin' and Matterhorn
Archer: California Screamin' and Tower of Terror

We also got in some swimming time at the hotel, and some shopping at Downtown Disney. Last time we did Disney, we all agreed that we should do a cruise next, but since that wasn't in the cards this time, maybe NEXT time will be a cruise!

Pictures pictures pictures!

Waiting for our flight

Exhausted boys. I need to remember to fly into Orange County airport instead of LAX. The money we saved was totally NOT worth it! By the time we got our bags and rental car, it was about 2 hours after our flight landed. Yuck. Poor kids were SO tired.

"Dressing up" for Halloween...Spider-Man, creeper, and Batman
Breakfast at Downtown Disney

The boys loved this dragon outside the Lego store

My view currently, except Archer is bopping around everywhere (fake sleeping in this pic). It's going to be a looooong night!
