March Disneyland Trip

When I bought my Disneyland pass, I had always had in mind taking a day off work here and there while school was in session to go.  Of course, I’ve been working my temp job for six months now, and taking time off means losing pay.  But I did do that this last Tuesday to go.

The reason?  I got to hang out with my friend and former roommate Mark.  We hadn’t seen each other since we hung out at Disneyland 10 months ago.

The day in the park was great.  It was more crowded than I wanted it to be, but we still got in quite a few rides.  Mark hadn’t spent any times in Cars Land, so we hit all three of the rides there.  I also introduced him to Toy Story Midway Mania, which he loved.  Unfortunately, he beat me at that and Buzz Lightyear over in Tomorrowland.

We started and ended out day in CA Adventure, but we did hit Disneyland in the middle of the day.  Thanks to some perfect timing and fast passes, we hit all the big rides over there, too.

And we got to catch up.  That’s fairly easy when you are spending hours with someone in lines, but it was nice to find out what all is happening with him and still have time to goof off.

And the weather was perfect!  I was wearing shorts all day.  I did put on a sweatshirt, but I never felt the need to put on the pants I brought.

I’ve only got six weeks left on my pass!  And I’ve got to get one more visit in before it expires.  It’ll probably be right at the end of April, but I’ve got until the end of April to use it one last time.

You know you need to renew right? Hahaha. Get the Premier and join me at WDW in January. Looking at spending a week at AKV (Animal Kingdom Villas). The following year it is off to Aulani. And, at some point going to squeeze in DCL. But, WDW will be first.

You know, I've got two friends doing the marathon next January. You are not making it any easier to say no to joining them.. If I had a job, I would probably say yes.

The pass is just so expensive, however. And I just can't afford it right now, as much as I've enjoyed it.
