This is how I imagined my boys would look at Disneyland.
But one boy is currently a little scared of indoor rides, loud noises, things that have scary parts, anything that might have a tunnel and the outside of the Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. So at one point we had a few tears and it looked like we wouldn’t make it through just one day.
Thank goodness we also have a boy who is good at navigation. We took the ferry to Tom Sawyer’s Island and plotted some ideas.
We even peeked in a few of the secret caves. I can’t believe I’ve never done this before-there’s a whole network of them all over the island. The caves were not totally dark because the hubby has a flashlight app on his phone and the boys have light up shoes. (The duo’s rationale not mine but I took it because it allowed us one more thing to do in Disneyland.)
We rode Dumbo countless times. And the carousel. And a little train we lined up in the sun for way way too long.
Autotopia was also a hit.
We even rode on an old fire engine too. (This also was another first. I always wondered who actually rode these rides on Main Street in Disneyland….)
We visited with some old friends.
Then sat down to enjoy the parade.
And now that we’re back they can’t stop talking about the Tiki Tiki Tiki Room or Splash Splash mountain. According to the duo, they’ll be ready to do these things when they’re five. We’ll see.
