Because Isaac has gotten lost at crowded places before and had anxiety about it, we decided to dress him in fluorescent shirts each day. We also had the kids wear color-coordinated outfits. The first day was pink and orange day. Isaac's shirt was way more bright than it looks in this picture. And I must say, that was probably the best idea ever! He worried a lot less, and it really was easier to keep track of him!
First off, we headed to Peter Pan's Flight. You can see from the above photo that we were really at the very front of the rope, so we had a straight shot through the castle to the ride. Which is a good thing, because the line for that ride forms shortly after the park opens and it never lets up. Before we left for Disneyland, we asked each kid what was something they really hoped that we would be able to do on this trip. Finley said that she wanted to ride Jingles on the Carousel. Since she had a very specific horse she wanted to sit on, we had to race to her horse. But thankfully, we were able to acquisition Jingles just for her.
Here are a few shots of her on the prized horse.
Sareny wasn't so picky about which horse she sat on.
The kids tried really hard to pull the sword out of the stone. Also, looking at these pictures reminds me how hot we were that first day! I guess we're used to that sort of November weather, considering that we live in Phoenix, but I just didn't realize we would be sweating!
Keeley and I rode Buzz Lightyear and the Astro Orbiters while the rest of the group rode Star Tours.
Then I rode Star Tours with the boys.
This has to be one of my favorite pictures from the trip!
After that, we headed over to Critter Country and rode Splash Mountain and Winnie the Pooh.
The quality is not so great, but here we are on the ride!

After we left the park, we stopped at the Cold Stone that was connected to our hotel to use the gift cards Grandma Nancy had given each of us. It was a fun end to a super fun day!
