Before we left to come to Disneyland, Uncle Jared and Aunt Emily surprised my kids with some lanyards. She said that the new thing at Disneyland is that you buy pins and put them on your lanyard and then you can trade them with people. The kids loved them!
Aubrey and Ollie
Eden and Natalie
The Blues Brothers...
"World of Disney" store (outside view)
I loved this pic of Sleeping Beauty's Castle. It reminds me of a snow globe.
If you look closely, you can see candy corns hanging from the palm trees.
Eden and Oliver before entering Disneyland.
We didn't see many characters throughout the day, but as we entered the park, we saw Goofy all decked out in his skeleton costume.
Cool decor on the lightposts.
We ate at the "Pizza Port" again this year. It's yumtastic! Here is Oliver and his big grin!
As we were walking to another ride, we walked past "Jedi Training". If we come back to Disneyland, we'll definitely have to get the kids involved. Here they are watching from afar.
Darth Vader and other characters
Jaren fell asleep before we got to "The Teacups".
Ed, Ollie and Eden
I love this picture. You can see the top of "The Matterhorn" and the awesome lanterns strung up over the "Teacups".
Aerial view from the treehouse. I think it used to be "The Swiss Family Robinson" treehouse, which of course I thought I was going to live in when I was older!!!
Knotty trees below the Tarzan's house.
I really wanted to go on this ride last time we went, but we ran out of time. For some reason I thought it was a rollercoaster... hmmm. It was actually a jeep ride that was on a track, but it simulated a bumpy ride all over the place! It was one of my favorites!
As you can see, Eden did NOT like this ride. Hehehe
Ed, Jared, Eden, Oliver and Aubrey in the Temple of the Forbidden Eye.

"Splash Mountain" was also one we didn't go on last time due to the rain before.
They had some pumpkins carved to look like Disney characters. They were AWESOME! I snapped some shots before the "Parade of Dreams" started. We actually got to see the parade this time! It was in the 90's and sunny this time. Last time it was rainy and chilly.
Walt Disney and Mickey Statue
I just LOVE Disneyland! I never went as a kid, but I love it there! I have to thank Emily for staying with Jaren and the kids when they opted out of a ride! I'm glad that we ALL got to go and spend time together! There still are some places that we didn't see... maybe next year! ;o)
