Our best friend Ted has found an awesome girl whose name is Megan. He has been fancying her for about 3 months now. About 2 months ago, there was talk of a Disneyland trip. Mind you, Scott has a bucket list and on this bucket list is a visit to Club 33 in Disneyland. So about 2 months ago, the planning commenced for a Disneyland trip for the 4 of us. Flights were booked, rooms were booked and Megan began her planning.
Fast-forward to now…. Megan is a Disney FAN. When I say fan, I mean FAN (she goes to Disneyland about once a month). She knows the ins and outs of Disneyland and she will let you know it. From the park hopper passes, to fast passes, to shuttle rides, she has it down pat. We really didn’t have to do anything. She is VIP 🙂
We arrived on Saturday evening in the OC. We went straight to the hotel. Ted and Megan decided to stay in but Scott and I were hungry, so we ventured out. Scott had been researching a restaurant called “The Ranch” and he wanted to try it. I am sure glad we did. Such great food.
The next day was going to be an early riser. We needed to be on the bus no later than 7:40am (according to Megan). She knew where we needed to be and what time we needed to be there. We took the shuttle over the Disneyland where she had our tickets ready to be picked up. We were in. We had fast passes ready to go. Our first ride was Space Mountain (fun roller coaster in the dark). Our second ride was Star Tours (I was not a fan of this, made me want to throw up, but I held back). She had us on the fast pass train all day.. pretty impressive how she never missed a beat. We enjoyed playing around in the stores and really enjoyed the chocolate store. Had to purchase some chocolate for later.
Some fun in the store..
The parade was a good highlight.
And more rides..
Some fun Christmas photos in front of the Christmas tree
This evening was a night to remember for Scott. It was Club 33! From him being able to ring the doorbell, and someone actually letting him in, to a welcome drink, hot towel, 6 course meal, I think this experience will be a lifetime memory of his.
Dinner was incredible. Dont mind all the food photos
We were able to watch Fantasmic from the balcony of Club 33.
We went on a few rides after dinner (with dresses on). We took some photos in front of the beautiful castle.
The next day, we went to Disney California Adventure. This was a fun park. Again, Megan had us hooked up on the fast passes. My favorite ride here was “Soarin”. It was so surreal, they even have the smells during the ride. Really cool. Tower of Terror was pretty much terror for me. I screamed the whole time. We had a great day at DCA.
We were exhausted at this point. Lots of on the go, go go go. But what an amazing time we had. Can’t wait to go back to Club 33 next year!
