This year if you signed up on Disney’s website, they gave you a free ticket on your birthday. I know, how cool is that! I was unfortunately unable to use my ticket because I was a wedding photographer for the day (not really bummed), but Luke’s birthday is a week prior to mine so we were able to use his and just pay for one ticket. It was a great way to celebrate both our birthdays.
We had planned everything out quite well. We dropped off Corbin at Nana and Papas Saturday night. Sunday (Luke’s birthday) morning we woke up, quickly got dressed and headed out the door by 6am. We picked up some bottled water and decaf coffee for me at Vons and off we went on our adventure. The drive was smooth with no congestion at all. Yea! We managed to arrived at Disneyland by 8am even with an addition stop at Carls Jr. for breakfast. I love hash browns!
The day was great! We ran around for about 2 hours without any lines at all. We first went to the Haunted Mansion because we love it. I wish they’d keep the Nightmare Before Christmas theme all year round. Then we made our way to the Pirates of the Caribbean and Buzz Light Year. So much fun! The best part was having quality time with my hubby. There were a good handful of rides I couldn’t go on because I’m pregnant, but that didn’t stop us from having fun. No way! To end the night we watched the Christmas Parade while sipping hot cocoa and eating a cinnamon roll and then went on the Haunted Mansion one more time before leaving for home. Oh, and my parents totally blessed us because my mom called and said we could leave Corbin overnight and didn’t have to worry about picking him up on our way home (would have added an additional hour to our commute). I love my parents!
