The Happiest Place on Earth - continued

As the little lady had a cold, we made sure we got sleep each night and didn't rush into the parks at sun up.
We slept in each morning and enjoyed a quiet breakfast in the room before venturing out.

We spent most of our days on rides and meeting characters :)

On our last night, after lots of fun, rides, characters, and even some family, we stayed out a bit later and enjoyed the fireworks.

The Happiest Place on Earth... with a cold.

Sweet daughter and I headed to the land of sunshine for her spring break (I am really late in posting).
We flew in and were picked up by a great town car service, who took us right to our hotel. We used our timeshare to trade into Disney's Grand California Villas, which was a treat!
Our room wasn't quite ready so we stashed our bags and headed for Disney's California Adventure park.
Our first ride was the new Little Mermaid ride. It was such fun we did it twice!
Then headed for the Bugs Life area for a few rides before getting a text saying our room was ready. Yeah!

Our room was similar to a standard room in the hotel, but also had a mini kitchen type area, bar sink, mini fridge, microwave and a handful of dishes.
We got unpacked and then headed back out into the wind to have dinner at Goofy's Kitchen. The resturaunt is inside the Disneyland Hotel at the other end of Downtown Disney, so we enjoyed a short wait and some window shopping.
She really wanted this wheel to roll :)
We enjoyed Goofy's Kitchen and the characters quite a bit.... macaroni and cheese pizza - who knew?

After dinner we headed to bed. The little lady had been fighting a cold and sleep sounded great.
