Disneyland {GNO}

Last week, I headed to Disneyland (And California Adventure) to have a different kind of Girl’s Night Out.  MJ, Michele, and I (The 3 M’s – not to be confused with the 3 muskateers) got there shortly after the park opened.  Michele has a season pass and goes often with her daughter, I have been recently this summer (with the fam and Aubrey) and MJ hadn’t been in at least a year or two.  With no kids in tow, it was time for some grown-up rides.  We went on Space Mountain first, hit up The Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Carribean, and made our way to California Adventure in the mid-afternoon. Mama needed a cocktail! Or, beer. Yes California Adventure has an awesome beer truck to get a yummy refreshment.  And I had to get a corndog – I have had them here once before (5 years ago) and I had been thinking of them ever since.  Here’s the day in pictures!

My score on the right. Michele kicked my butt the first round and last round. I won the other ones

Did you know about the Hidden Mickey’s? Sometimes they are like this (lights), other times formation of things, or chiselled into rides. Before they re-did Pirates, there was about 65 hidden from start to finish!
