Christmas Trip To Disneyland

Disneyland during the holidays puts me right into the Christmas spirit :)
I've been fortunate to go a few times during Christmas, and TL and I went again this last week with our friends Justin and Sabrina.  They are so much fun, and the boys together are trouble!
We got two connecting hotel rooms, and had a fabulous time!

Our two days in the park were Thursday & Friday.  Thursday went very smoothly - no crowds and the lines for all the rides were 5-15 minutes.  Friday night was a different story... but it was still very fun!  We hopped around between California Adventure and Disneyland, watched the parade, World of Color, and the Fireworks shows.

We made lots of fun new memories!
 The Haunted Mansion transforms into The Nightmare Before Christmas!
 Hanging out with the adorable characters
She was so evil - wanted the boys to pose like this for the picture.  Love her!
 In front of the big tree on Main Street.  It's beautiful!
 Our first night we didn't go into the parks - so we played Cranium in the hotel - girls won!
Getting SOAKED on Splash Mountain - a few times!
 We shoved all 4 of us into one shell on the new Little Mermaid ride.  The employees were impressed :)
 Mr. Potato Head interacts with the people in line - made our 30 minute wait fly by.
My favorite snack in the park... a Churro.  And I had a few of them :)
 The boys were being very naughty.  No one wanted to stand near us... you can guess why!
 Watching the fireworks
It's A Small World all decked out for the Holidays!

It was a memorable and fun trip!  I bought a little ornament to add to our tree.
I am so happy the holidays are here!!
