The merriest place on earth! Sometimes...

So how do you make up for a crap day? Why go to Disneyland of course! So that's where we headed last night. With promises of Christmas parades, holiday themed rides and of course, fireworks and SNOW!!

Well, turns out most of those promises were empty. We saw the Christmas parade (hello it's been the same every year for how long) and there was one "incident" where Pluto was sitting on top of the float, and his tail was placed in a particularly awkward position, forcing Disney security to wave their hands frantically and tell him to close his legs. Good lord. I bet someone took a picture of that for the internet.

Christmas themed rides? Forget it, they closed "It's a Small World" for the fireworks SPECTACULAR. Spectacular? Not so much. People sat on Main St. for hours saving a seat and guess what? It was deemed too windy, so screw the fireworks. Ha, you dumb bastards could have been on rides instead of sitting in the street for two hours.

However, they did make it "SNOW." Disney is known for their holiday snow, and it's very cute. My kid wasn't fooled. He said, "bubbles!" Yep Kid, those were soap bubbles, not real snow. I know cause some fell in my mouth and that was nasty. I'm sure the midwesterners were in awe of the life-like snow, or wait, were they more in awe of the California natives "ohhing" and "ahhing" over the soap bubbles being shot from cannons over their heads?

Eh, I still had fun anyway, cause I got to eat ice cream. And ride one ride that was ok for pregger ladies! However, don't get me started on how they denied me entrance into the park...that's another story for another day...

Bad days suck, but D-land can be fun. We usually go on Thanksgiving with a group of friends that don't have family out here either. It's so much fun! But, I'm missing it for family this year. In-law family. Oh boy.

Midwesterners are laughing at you. But most of them also think it's pretty all the same, especially because they don't have to put on long johns.
