Disneyland before. A lot. So there's not too many things we haven't done. But on this trip, we went to a new show. And I got chocked up. I could have hysterically laughed/sobbed if I really let myself haha. There is a Disney Junior Puppet show in California Adventure. As I mentioned, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is one of Viv's favorite shows. She also loves Sofia the First, Doc McStuffin's, and Jake and the Neverland Pirates. ALL of these shows and characters were included in this interactive puppet show. Picture a room filled with toddlers seeing their favorite characters LIVE IN PERSON! Viv was standing and clapping and dancing and singing along with the theme songs. She pointed out every character and waved hi. She collected all the confetti that fell during the show. She was so excited! My Mama heart was soaking up all her joy and it made me laugh and cry haha. She was so cute!
Grand California Hotel. We grabbed a special treat from Starbucks (love that Disneyland has these now!) and put up our feet as we rocked in rocking chairs by the fireplace. A perfect break.
|This is Lulu's "I'm done with photos, Mama!" face haha.|
Another favorite ride was It's a Small World ride. It was the last ride of the night. Right after we watched the Parade (where Vivi also waved and yelled hi to every character). Viv sang along to Small World the whole time. And Lulu danced and flapped her arms as she stared in awe. Pretty adorable end to an awesome day. The only thing that would have made it better would be if Papa was able to come with and see it all as well.
