It was a beautiful summer day today at Disneyland. We went out for just a few hours...we're waiting to do the Submarine Voyage on the next visit, as my husband has been out of town. We want to experience it for the first time as a family. (The line was over 2 hours long this morning!)
We went on Small World, Jungle Cruise, Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin, and just had a nice time walking around and taking in the sights, such as this Monorail with a Submarine paint job (click photos to enlarge):
King Triton's Pool looked so inviting we wanted to jump in:
It wouldn't be a Disneyland post without a closeup of some of the beautiful seasonal flowers:
Here's a fun article from earlier this week about the "third shift" which works overnight at Disneyland. Some of my fondest memories from my years working at the park are of being in the park when it was closed. After hours you can hear "I'm Wishing" from Snow White's Wishing Well echoing all the way over to Carnation Gardens...it's a neat effect, as normally you have to be standing right next to the well to hear Snow White singing.
One year I also participated in the early morning canoe races around Tom Sawyer Island...it's hard work paddling twice around the island, as fast as you can, but it's also a very special privilege.
