So we have just arrived at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA following two days “relaxing” by the beach in La Jolla. So, given we have Olly with us, not a great deal of relaxing took place 🙂
We have spent a combined 5.5 hours on the beach over the last two days – it was raining on Tuesday morning so not ideal for beach access 🙁 So,cows went shopping 🙂 Olly decided that because he could not find Benny’s Spaceship at LEGOLAND or any local Target store that he would relent and buy a police car and sports bike from the LEGO Movie instead. This would not leave him with enough dollars to buy the spaceship but he was fine with it as he will ask Father a Christmas about the spaceship. Last night all LEGO sets were built and promptly played with in the hotel room before being packed this morning ready for their trip back to the UK.
Typically the damned spaceship IS available here in the LEGO store in Downtown Disney….. 🙁
The beach at Torrey Pines State Park today was perfect – nice solid sand and a nice relaxed wave formation that was not brutal like the shores at La Jolla from yesterday – they were dangerous in La Jolla really as the backdraft pulled the boys into the ocean as well as knocked them over on the way in 🙁 The boys through ugh enjoyed it however….
Torrey Pines was mor like Filey beach for the the of sand and the waves initially. The waves did get stronger although barely enough to be too worried about – the only thing we had to worry about was our little ginger grenade sloping off down the beach in the ocean – he liked to be beyond waist deep with waves that almost went over his head – strangely Mummy and a Daddy were less keen on this….
Now we are in the Grand Californian Hotel for two nights and have a super early start tomorrow as the park is open at 8am for hotel guests which gives us a one hour advantage over ordinary punters :-). The last thing we would like to experience is the world of colour show in the evening but that is not until 9pm hence we have a loooonnnnngggg day tomorrow :-). Thankfully there is a special place in the hotel that we can go to in order to get premium views of the show 🙂 YAY. Better still it is just three floors above where we are staying in the same building – double YAY.
Sadly, the seller of daddy’s favourite popcorn has left the Downtown Disney area so no popcorn for daddy this time around 🙁 all it will take is for the ice-creams that daddy loves to also be no longer available and we will have wasted $2k of cash in coming here…. Only joking the kids are super excited to be here although daddy is a little worried that Olly is more concerned with the damned LEGO spaceship than the Disney experience…. 🙁
