Each day we waited outside our hotel, Homewood Suites, to catch a shuttle to Disneyland. It was great! The shuttle took us right to the park entrance so we didn't have to park a mile away. The shuttle came by every half hour so you could go back and forth to your motel if you wanted. Below is a picture of Dick patiently waiting in the warm sunshine of California! The weather was perfect - not too hot - not too cold. Our hotel provided breakfast in the morning and supper in the evenings so that saved us a lot of money that would have been spent eating out. Our room had a small kitchenette and livingroom with everything you needed (even a dishwasher) if you wanted to make your own lunch. It was a children friendly hotel and a great place to stay.

Disneyland was so much fun! Lots of people enjoying spring break just like us! My favorite ride was the Grizzly River Run. Dick's favorite ride was "Soarin' Over California". We saw an Aladdin musical play at the Hyperion Theater. It was fantastic. There were so many cute rides and attractions. "It's Tough to be a Bug!" was really cute for children. The fireworks were unbelieveable and the parades were a lot of fun to watch. We didn't even begin to see everything.

This is a picture of Rafe and Kiya with one of the Park helpers at "It's a Small World" talking to them while they waited in line. Someone got off the boat during the previous ride and they had to check everything out before they would let us get in the boats. They recently renovated this feature.

This is our grandaughter, Daisha, waiting for the shuttle bus.

There were benches in the park so you could rest if you needed a break or if you were trying to decide where to go next.

This is a picture of Russ and Jen and their family.

This was a water feature that the kids had fun playing on. It looked like a giant flower with a sprinkler in the center.

Dick got in trouble so he was sequestered in jail on Tom Sawyer Island. Hmmm. It looked like head hunters were a breath away!!!! Good thing I helped him escape. He doesn't look very scared, does he?

This is a picture of us taken by a sweet lady who saw us trying to take pictures of one another. She offered to take one of both of us.
