Fun at Disneyland (and a Big Kiss from Daisy Duck)



Despite that awful experience at the Corner Cafe aside, we did have fun at Disneyland.


Because there weren’t that many people there that day, we pretty much had the run of the park.

Josh and Zoë got to play on the drums to their little hearts’ content, without having to wait and wait for their turn only to be reminded not to hog and to let other people have their turn.

We were finally able to make it to Tarzan’s Tree House –our first time, since the park opened in 2005!

After that, we caught The Lion King show. Zoë sat on my lap the whole show and was clapping her hands and really getting into it. Both Josh and Zoë even sang along to some of the songs. Josh, at one point, said that the lady’s rendition of Circle of Life was not right, that she did not sing it “correctly… the way it sounded on our CD.”

We left Adventureland and made our way to Fantasyland where we did the Mad Teacups, Dumbo, the carousel, and Small World. It was such a joy to see Zoë thoroughly enjoying EVERYTHING. During the boat ride in the Small World, she kept pointing at different things and exclaiming, “I like this one, Mommy! … and this one, too!”

But the highlight of her visit was a big kiss from Daisy Duck. You can’t tell from the photo below, but she felt really special. She kept talking about it and that was the first thing she told Chris about our visit to Disneyland when he came home. Last night (and tonight, too) during bedtime prayers, she said, “Thank you, Jesus, for big kiss (from) Daisy!”

Oh, that is so sweet!!! Isn't it wonderful, when a trip just WORKS? You couldn't have planned that if you'd TRIED. Such great memories! And not EVERYONE gets a kiss from Miss Daisy Duck!!

That wasn't a REAL elephant at Tarzan's Tree House, was it? It looks so real!

@Jennifer: LOL! No, it wasn't. And yes, it looked pretty real. Josh kept asking if it was real. :)

She wasn't afraid of Daisy Duck? It must've made her day!!

You were all able to go on quite a few rides. That doesn't happen here in Anaheim. It's usually so very crowded.
