Don’t call us, we’ll call you

Um, so Disneyland might have been a mistake . . .

Do you know how freaking huge that place is?!  I pretty much thought I was going to die about 5 minutes after we got into California Adventure (since we parked at the free Downtown Disney parking, I had already walked the entire length of Downtown Disney).

I guess I forgot that I have not been to an amusement park without my wheelchair for almost 15 years (I think our year passes were the last time, Ishkhanoohie!).  That’s not for the faint of heart, people.  (And we were only there for about two hours.)

In other news, Addison LOVED it.  And passers-by loved watching her LOVE it.



  1. It’s nice that you have an annual pass! That way, you don’t have to feel bad about only being there for 2 hours. When I was younger, we went to Disneyland once and had to spend the entire day (I mean, as soon as it opened, until it closed) running around trying to take in (and ride) everything that we possibly could. My dad was frugal, and we don’t live in SoCal, so we only went one day and it was an EXHAUSTING (and very rainy) day! :O) But I love Disneyland, too. What a fun thing you are able to do together! I bet it was fun for Addison to take it all in~! I hope you can recover from the experience quickly! :O)

  3. You got a pass!!! Let’s go!! And the nice thing is – we can go for a couple hours and that’s totally okay! Cause we can go back later!

  4. Oh the good old days of Mary Popping the escalators and barking (somethings are probably best left in the past). Of course you could always just ride the tram for 2-3 hours. I bet Addison would love that. 😉 I wish I could go with you again and see Addison- I can just imagine how happy and expressive her face is. And I promise I would give you a piggy back ride all the way from Downtown Disney parking!
