Disneyland 2012

Over to Disney California Adventure today.  We got into the park about 8 am and headed over to the brand new Radiator Springs.  We walked around checking out the the sights for a while before jumping on the Luigi's Flying Tires ride

After getting out of the Flying Tires it was snack time.
Then we headed over to Radiator Springs Racers, but EJ was about 1&1/2 inches too short to ride, so we watched the cars zoom by instead.

EJ did not mind not being able to go on the ride since he got to watch the cars zoom by for about an hour.  After resting and watching the racing cars, we headed over to our first meet up with the OUAT fan podcast crowd  After saying hello to our podcast friends, we walked around California Adventure and looked at the pier and looked for SF Giants pins.  Then we headed over for our first and second rides on The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure. 
After our second go around in The Little Mermaid~Ariel's Undersea Adventure EJ was done in.

Then we ran into some of our friends from Petaluma who had just gotten off Grizzly River Run and were headed right back on.  Helga tagged along with them since it was about 85 in the shade.  By now it was about lunch so we looked up our friends the Hobbs who are down here with us and went for Mexican right off of Louisiana Square.  On our way to meet up with the Hobbs, we picked up what could be called the most delicious food in all of Disneyland which is doubly true on a hot day-Dole pineapple ice-cream.
After a delicious lunch, we were headed back to DCA when we ran into someone special!

 Then over to Grizzly River Run but the wait was about an hour so we picked up some fast passes for later. That done, we headed over to The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure for another run.  Then we walked over to the Boardwalk and enjoyed the sights and a little ice-cream too.  Then the Bees headed over to the Back lot for a photo opp with the OUAT fan podcast folks.  We got there early though so we went for a ride on the  Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue! ride.  Then over for that photo opp.  And over at the back lot there was an opportunity for a photo for EJ and one of his favorite Disney characters-Jake!
Then we walked DCA some more and watched the Pixar Play Parade.  Then it was dinner at the Paradise Garden Grill.  By  this time the whole family was wiped out and so it way time to say bye to the park.  We needed some supplies so the next stop was Target.  Then at last we headed back to the hotel for some much needed R&R.
