Disney Daze


With an Early morning wake up call for Azul, I went into his nightlight-filled room and gave him a kiss and said, “Good morning my love.” With his eyes closed he responded with, “I’m trying to get some sleep here.” I said, “Guess what day today is?” I could feel him thinking and I continued, “We’re going to Disneyland today!” In his sleepy voice he said, “Right this minute?” He needed a little more time to wake up, but once he got going he didn’t want to stop. There is nothing like going to Disneyland with a child, everything is so big and so bright and so exciting. The first on Azul’s list, Star Tours. When we walked in, we were greeted by R2-D2 and C-3PO and in amazement he gasped and said, “I didn’t know they were real!” Everything was real, even the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which he was ready to ride. I tried to explain that it was too scary, but he was ready and met the height requirement, so we went in. That didn’t go so well and when we walked out he said, “Now that I experienced it, I’ll never ride that again!” At the Matterhorn he announced, “I’m having a great day!” But, after Space Mountain he admitted, “That was a bit much for me.” We did ride Splash Mountain twice and both times with absolute joy he yelled, “I am soaked!”  All in all in three days we rode 29 rides, including jumping on the bed at the hotel while watching the fireworks display. We had a blast. He is still talking about it and even said, “I want to take my son to Disneyland one day too.”
