We finally made it to the Magic Kingdom!!
It took us one day to drive, then we had one day at the beach, followed by one day at Disneyland, one day at California adventures, another beach day, and the last day we drove home. It was just about the perfect ratio of beach to amusement parks.
They have buttons especially for "first-timers."
Discovered Dole whips at the Tikki bar. Very refreshing.
We did it all and we did it all together. Favorite ride was Splash Mountain. We went on it 3x in a row.
Only low of the day is that we took a wrong turn walking back to our hotel which extended our already long day of walking into an extra 2 miles of walking!!! Ugh. We fell into bed exhausted. And the next day we spent the smartest $9 of the trip and took a taxi!
