I had an annual pass for a few years as a kid and then again in college, so it was like going back to my ol’ playground. (Regarding my college pass: I was under-age to go cool places and my ex-bf was super into D-land so we went All.The.Time.)
Ben grew up in a little place called Florida and has only been to D-land once before. So, it was all new and exciting to him. Showing him all the fun things is like taking a kid to Disney without having to put up with whining or diaper changes. Mostly.
After Pirates of the Caribbean we headed to California Adventure. We went on Soaring Over California – my favorite ride (and favorite state!). Seriously, that ride had Ben and I talking about taking an epic road trip up the coast.
One must see stop is the Boudin’s bakery because you get a piece of bread! I may have went around 6 times before the cast member told me to stop and buy a loaf already! Hey, races are expensive and I need to carb load for my run tomorrow…
Disneyland Tip: California Adventure sells alcohol. You will need alcohol after getting run over by a stroller and waiting in line for the restroom 8 times in a day.
Disneyland Margaritas make his dimple appear
Ben got Chinese food – chicken with coconut curry sauce on top of veggies (a little bit) and rice. I asked if they had brown rice and they actually mix brown and white together. They should offer brown straight up. Other than that, this was delicious.
Okay, I should get to sleep and hope I wake up without these two huge pimples living on my face. I have a super fancy event to attend on Sunday and I’m already nervous enough without that added stress!
