Yes, they exist Yay!

Finally, Disneyland.  Always wanted to see it.  Glad I have.  Some of the music made me cry! I’m just an emotional person I guess.  And I saw Rapunzel! my all time favourite fairy story.

I didn’t take my proper camera because I thought it would be a problem to carry all day so these pics are from my iPhone.

The number of people there was phenomenal. The strollers, the fat people, the balloons, mouse ears, cleanup teams, the smells from the restaurants.

We caught the ART – Anaheim Resort Transport bus number 6 from Katella Ave just near our resort at WorldMark by Wyndham Resort. Katella Ave was named after Kate and Ella whose parents had been early settlers in Anaheim.

The bus ride took about 5 mins and it drove right into the Disneyland lot.  The were stops for about 20 buses which circle constantly around the resorts every 15 mins from rm 9am-12midnightish.

The drive was good, I felt a little stiff each time we got out from sitting still for so long.

The day got hotter and the clouds became more impressive as the day wore on.

The landscape was ever-changing and interesting.  Beautiful mountains and hills and roadsides of great variation as we journeyed west on the 506 (I think) I was not driving so did not have to worry about navigating.

Crossed the border into California and went through an Agriculture Checkpoint, we were waved through without stopping.  No Mexicans on board.

Had lunch in Indio and collected some stuff from Walmart and Petco.

The drive continued for 6 hours approximately and the countryside was amazing, wonderful, beautiful.
