OUR FIRST TIME IN DISNEYLAND
It only took me 28 years and Gavin 32 years to visit Disneyland. On our third and last day in Hong Kong, I asked (forced, brain washed, guilted) Gavin to take me and Matias to Disney. I had to give him lost of reasons why we should go visit rather than looking around the city.
Anyhow, we went to Disney, and we had a great time. We decided to check out from the hotel early in the morning. So we went to Disney with our suitcase, that way we could just go straight to our flight from the park. We bought our tickets around 11am, and I was as happy and excited as all the little kids around us. Everything I saw was like magic to me, and I couldn't believe I was finally in a Disney park.
We stayed together the whole time as a family and did a few of the easy rides that Matias would enjoy. We first took the cinderella carousel; I am not sure if we liked it considering I was dizzy afterwards and Matias wasn't smiling anymore. Then, we took a boat ride listening to a song the entire time called "It's a Small World". The boat travelled around the world, exploring the different scenery while fake little kids sang the song in all the countries. We also had time to watch the Halloween parade where we saw Mickey and his friends, take the train around the border of the park, and go on the Winnie the Pooh ride.
So our final impression as Disneyland newbies: We enjoyed it and we think Matias had a great time. Although he does have a great time any place no matter what, as long as he has food and his three naps. Gavin did say this was his first and last time in Disney. But while I was going through the photos, I realized Gavin was smiling in all of them, so either he was faking a smile or actually enjoying it.
