Disneyland, From a Five-Foot-Four Viewpoint

We received our tax return at the beginning of the month.  I paid some overdue bills and other things.  We usually renew our Disneyland Season Passes with our tax return.  We’ve done it for the past four years. But this year, I completely forgot.

I received paperwork from Disneyland for the pass, but I put it aside.  I decided to just renew my pass on the payment plan, the next time we went to Disneyland.  But, I happened to check Facebook on Saturday.  Every once in awhile, checking Facebook can be a good thing.

My sorority sister, Lisa posted on her Facebook wall that a fellow alumna was selling a gift certificate for a Disneyland Season Pass.  The woman already had a Season Pass, and received the gift certificate from a family member.  The best part of this, was that she was selling the gift certificate for a Premium Pass (value $459) for $300.  I may have screamed out loud, because this was a good deal.  I ended up meeting the woman, Wendy, at Disneyland later that afternoon.  I paid her the money and updated my pass.  Angry Husband and Angry Kid were out for the night, so I grabbed my camera when I went to Disneyland.

I was able to take a few photographs while I was at Disneyland.  It was slightly crowded on Main St., as High School Cheerleaders and Bands were performing.  I was able to take some photographs of buildings and signs at Disneyland from my view, which is 5’4″, looking up! Plus, I had to crop out all of the construction going on.

I love Disneyland. I think I would die if I lived that close. We're hoping to go back in September but haven't told the children yet--we were there this past September so they're not expecting to get to go again so soon.

What a deal! I've had a longing to go back to Disneyland ever since we were there in 2006 and your pictures just increased that longing! We are planning to go this fall...I can't wait!!

My husband grew up there and talks of going SO very often. {totally jealous}. YAY for you finding a great deal, on facebook even! The first shot brings back so many memories of my first, and only trip when I was 10. Lovely!

Part of me KNOWS there are people who can go to Disneyland so often but my mind still can't wrap around it. ;) Lovely shots. I'll try not to be too envious. :)

I may live about 15 minutes away. We used to go more often but swamped with Little League and homework now. It is very convenient.
