The last time I was at Disneyland I was eighteen. I was travelling with a huge bunch of other eighteen year olds from all over the world. We had an absolute blast, as you can probably imagine. It was just as much fun, if not more, this time. I honestly smiled and laughed the entire time.
I am writing this from an eighth floor hotel room just around the corner from Union Square in San Francisco. I think the last time this place was renovated was in the forties. We just flew in this morning and while there’s no air conditioning, and the elevator rattles a little, I’m delighted to find there is a solid, speedy (and complimentary) internet service available. Hallelujah! I’m living on free wifi at the moment.
It’s such a beautiful night. My tiny little desk looks out the window, which I’ve opened to let in a cool breeze. The curtains are fluttering just a little, and I can hear the city breathing outside. I have so many more posts to write and so many more stories to share, but for now I’ll leave you with the happiest place on earth.
Images (from top to bottom): Me & The Boy in front of Fantasyland // A drum-kit playing Mickey Mouse entertains everyone (me included) during the parade // Yes, I rode the carousel like a big kid. And yes, I waved. It was awesome // This nice man said “hello” to me, and I told him his pants reminded me of sheepskin from home. He responded with a drawling “They’re act-tually made out of yak skin!” It made me giggle // The Haunted Mansion all dressed up for Halloween // Halloween lights dancing on all the trees // Playing tourist at Disney’s California Adventure Park // I bet you can’t tell where the real buildings end and the backdrop begins… in Hollywood Land // More beautiful Halloween lanterns // Climbing around inside the faux natural maze created by Disney inside California Adventure Park’s ‘Grizzly Peak’ // Wearing a tan and a smile after hopping off the rollercoaster at Paradise Pier // The Magic Kingdom by star light.
