Ivan and I woke up at 7 am on January 21, 2013. We left the hotel at 7:40 am and started walking to California Adventure.
We went on lots of ride at California Adventure. Ivan and I use the Fast Pass and it’s great not waiting very long for rides. We rode the big ferris wheel (the moving carriage!), Soarin’ Over California and other cool rides.
We walked to Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney. Keith and Thresa, who we met on our Alaskan cruise, met us there. We started off with some cheesy garlic bread. Ivan had a seafood salad while I had the pasta jambalaya with chicken, sausage and shrimp. The food was tasty. It was sooo great catching up with Keith and Thresa. I totally forgot to get a picture of all of us though. Next time!!
We went back to California Adventure to go on more rides. We saw the parade with Pixar characters.
Later, we met up with my old friend Jerry and his girlfriend Denise. It was great to see him and meet his girlfriend. We all had pasta for dinner.
We checked out the Mad T Party.
The bar had a cool table hanging down from it. There was red lights on in this area and flashing drinks. Ivan and I each got a flashing drink.
Ivan and I watched the Mad T band with Alice while Jerry and Denise went on a ride.
We had a fast pass for Tower of Terrors, so we said we’d meet up with Jerry and Denise later. The Tower of Terrors was lots of fun. It was my first time riding this ride, but I’ve been on the one at Disney World. It’s scary because you’re not sure if you’re going to fall or go back up.
We met up with Jerry and Denise at California Screamin’ and rode the fun rollercoaster. It was cool riding it at night with all the lights on.
Ivan and I were trying to convince Jerry and Denise to watch the World of Color water show with us, but they said they were headed home.
We said good-bye and headed to the area for ticket holders – we got the tickets earlier in the day.
The World of Color show is amazing with lots of Disney cartoons shown on the fountains with lots of lights as well.
It’s really worth checking it out.
After the show, we rushed to Toy Story and it was really quiet – we rode it twice in a row and then it was closed. The park was closed so we walked back to the hotel. It was a really fun day filled with rides, Disney characters and friends.
