A few days with the mouse...

I know, I know... it's taking me longer to post about my vacation than it did to actually experience it.

The last stop for our crazy train was Disneyland. On the day we arrived we had spent eight hours travelling but still managed to close down the park at midnight. A feat which we repeated four days in a row.

Strange things happen at Disneyland in the wee hours of the morning. As we were crawling towards the gate at about 12:15am on our third night there we saw a group of people in bathrobes, lead by a Disney "cast member" strolling through the park. I can't shake the idea that they were on their way to a secret spa hidden on Pirate Island. Captain Jack's Ayurvedic massage and herbal wraps perhaps? Natural sea salt scrub anyone?


I believe the secret entrance to the night spa may be somewhere behind the black sails but I wasn't allowed to look for it. Notice how my husband made sure I didn't get too close to the Jack Sparrow look alike... soon after this picture was taken he dragged from the island and forced me to ride the psychedelic Winnie the Pooh ride in an attempt to distract me.


Of course, I forgave him and we went on to enjoy more wholesome, non-pirate attractions.


Until the accident in Toon Town....


And the unfortunate incarceration of my three precious children.

Since we had spent all of our money on food I thought I would be forced to sell my body lanyard to the pirates for bail money but I was rescued by...

The Mouse... King of All Pirates!

ROFLMAO!! Oh Lord, that post of the "car crash" just had me cackling. That is so cute. You all are a fun family and I love how your kids are willing to have fun and be silly.

Good job, Gina!!

They are definitely fun kids! I'm not sure any of them think I'm much fun but I sure enjoy them.

I'm glad to see you're not the only one in your house that has a sense of humor!

Oh... we are doing the disney pilgrimage in October. I hope we have that nice tasty little Johnny Depp lookalike!

Oh he was mighty cute but when you got close to him it was obvious that he was about twenty years old and that ruined the illusion for me. Johnny Depp is more attractive to me because he looks so damned good and is older than I am.

Bathrobes? At Disneyland? At 12:15 am? It sounds unwholesome.

Well they were in New Orleans Square Jason... Disney's red light district perhaps?

I'm going to make a note to myself to check out that whole "bathrobes after midnight" thang going on....oh, what fun that would be!!

Toon Town was one of my favorite places....we might have had an accident almost exactly like that one too...!!
What a great vacation...glad to know that families still do that!!!
