Theme Park Week

Angry Husband has been on vacation this week. It was completely last minute so we had nothing planned, yea really, we have no money to do anything. We have passes to Disneyland, so Angry Husband and I headed there. We went to Disney’s California Adventure first. You can tell a true Disney Geek, because we were excited by all of the construction. Angry Husband made me take several pictures of the construction. It’s amazing how much is going on.


After touring through California Adventure, we headed over to Disneyland. We mostly walked around and toured the shops. That’s what you can do when you are kid-free and have Season Passes.

On Wednesday, we headed to SeaWorld. I am thanking, Lorna publicly for giving me passes. I twittered about SeaWorld discounts and she let me know that she had some passes. How awesome is the power of Twitter!! We had not been to SeaWorld for about two years. So we thought we would give it a try. Of course, we picked one of the hottest days of the summer to go. We slathered on the sunscreen when we got there. Okay, they slathered on the sunscreen. I was too worried about Angry Husband and Angry Toddler getting burnt that I forgot to put some on. You can only imagine that awful “farmer’s tan” I am sporting. It’s awesome. We went through all of the exhibits, and sat for two shows, The Shamu Show and the dolphins. Angry Husband and I decided why we don’t go to SeaWorld that often, we are not impressed. I think we are totally spoiled by The Aquarium of the Pacific. We used to have a season pass there and went like once a week. That place is beautiful. Sadly, SeaWorld is not that pretty. I now have the same opinion of Sea World as I do of Legoland, “meh, not impressed, not worth the money, and why can’t they paint some stuff to make it pretty”.


Yes, I got my official “Shamu” photos taken with my upgraded lens on my camera. Yes, I got some pictures of Angry Toddler, but really, give me Aquarium of the Pacific anyday, over SeaWorld. Oh, and Disneyland. I could go there every day of the week and see something different.

On Thursday night, I headed over to Disneyland with my mom, and Angry Toddler. My mom had a Disney pass that she wanted to use and suggested a trip. I agreed. Angry Husband was out hanging with his boys. Oh my, was it HOT! I think it was almost 100 degrees at 6pm. CRAZY! It was pretty quiet though. I think a lot of kids have gone back to school and people were not traveling as much. We were able to see the fireworks, and enjoy some shows. We actually stayed till closing, and the best news…my mom got a season pass. Now she can take Angry Toddler…hehehhehe.

P.S. I added the lovely title to my California Adventure pictures, because I get so many random “hits” for Disney Construction in the title!

You are not alone in being a Disneyland geek...our family has season passes as well and I decided last year for my birthday that I wanted to go there without kids...it is amazing how much easier it is to get around without a stroller! And hello Mr. Margarita near Cocina Cucamonga at California Adventure...if you're into that sort of thing. Great blog. Stay Angry!

We went to Disney today! Just to get my mom's funcard because it's her birthday. We went on Pirates and then left to pick Bug up from school. And well, I'm sure you saw my blog from a few weeks ago when we went to Seaworld. We hadn't been in 4 years and loved it.

I feel like such a dork because although I don't like the animals performing tricks- I love the Sesame Street area of SeaWorld and have passes. I agree that -Disney I could do everyday and see something new. Love that place.I also took a bunch of pictures of the construction. I don't know what it is about construction pictures at Disney. They are so fun to take!

It's always fun to go to Disney with just the grown ups! I like the construction pictures, I took some too the last time we were there. I noticed the ferris wheel is different now as well. Thanks for your feedback on Sea World. I have not been there since Talia was 18 months and forgot what it's like. I remember not being overly wowed by it. I want to go to Aquarium of the Pacific again. We've only been there once.

I'm with you on Sea World. Haven't been to Legoland yet but we had free tickets and gave them away to some friends and they said it was not worth paying either.

We might be heading your way before I go back to work in October! Hubby and I want to go to the Aquarium of the Pacific during this Disneyland visit. I was thinking of Seaworld but hate going to places that I loved as a child and being disappointed as an adult (ie Knott's).

You wanted some heat not too long ago!HA! Looks like some fun visits. We recently went to Sea World in San Antonio-I agree, it was nice but so NOT worth $150 it cost to get us in and the $???? it costs us to eat that day. Still saving for Disney though.

I agree, Aquarium of the Pacific is much better plus you don't have all that guilt that the sea life is performing tricks for you. Although, I do like the penguin exhibit!Glad you could use the tickets.
