Disney Date

Seriously Disneyland is one of the best date nights if you happen to live in Southern California and have a season pass. Even when I was a single gal - it is a great, easy night that you can do for free.

So we went last night (March 28th) and committed a HUGE tactical mistake. It was Spring Break and there could have been a BAZILLION people there. All attractions that included a fun ride of any sort was now out of the question, so we (me, Darren, Lexi, Casey) did the more neglected attractions of Disneyland. Maybe the ones no one really wants to do but just happens to have no lines and who likes being in a line?

So this off-the-beaten-track Disneyland was a fun blast from the past. We started with the train ride that circles around Disneyland, watched Honey I Shrunk The Audience (which I think was way more fun when I was about 15) and finished up with:

That's right - it is The Enchanted Tiki Room - you know where all of the birds and flowers talk? This was a hidden treat because my Mom always insisted on going to this attraction. It was strangely enough one of her favorites. She always thought the attractions were "so neat." That was her favorite terms when she liked something. However, it was fun to be in there and have Darren point out that she probably liked it because she finally got a chance to sit down and relax. Which was probably true!!!! Coming to Disneyland with a few kids would be tricky but 11 or so would be probably not very enjoyable for any poor mother. :)

So here's to the forgotten parts of Disneyland. Next time I am going to try and visit something else that is partially forgotten :)

We went to the tiki room once because we were hot and wanted to sit in a shaded place with our kids. The kids loved it and I will get that stupid song stuck in my head every now and the... " in the tiki, tiki tiki tiki tiki room..."

I had never been to the Tikki room until Ryan took me. I think my parents just spent a huge amount of time waiting in lines for a few rides. I agree that Disneyland is so much fun!

p.s. Thanks for bringing your dad to come and see my dad! It was so good to see you both.
