// day two in los angeles: california adventures

We couldn't be more excited to have new adventures for the day and going to Disney California Adventures is in our agenda. This would be my second time going to Disneyland this year, the first time being in Paris for a school trip and I must say the one in California is bigger and better! The hotel we stayed in wasn't that far from the park which was great. Don't judge okay, some of you probably think I'm a bit old to get all psyched up over this but deep inside I am a kid at heart lol. We had to get tram from the parking lot since it was a bit of walk and we didn't want to spend our energy on walking when we could use it for having fun inside instead. Before we bought our tickets, we headed to the Disney store first because getting Minnie Mouse ears headbands was at the top of Hanna and our cousin, Kyra's to-do list for the day. It was really sunny that day and I was crossing my fingers that I'd finally get a tan.

The park was packed! Waiting time for the rides were 40 minutes to an hour. Hours of standing and walking, but it was all worth it in the end because the rides were so much fun. The first ride we got on was "Grizzly River Run", a ride which involves water and getting soaked! The floaty thing could take up 8 passengers, there was four of us and then four lovely people we didn't know. Here's what it looked like.

Most of the backside of my dress got wet, but it was nothing compared to what happened to Hanna. She didn't put up her shoes like what I did so her converse was literally dripping wet. But oh well, it was only water and it'll eventually dry up since it was hot anyway. Other rides we went on was the Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventures: we sat on a booth which took us to see the highlights from the movie, there were dancing characters and the like as well. Going on California Screamin' was both exhilarating and nerve-wracking at the same time. There were loads of drops and a loop which looks scary just by looking at it but at the end it wasn't actually too bad and we realised it was all just hype. The queue for Toy Story Midway Mania was probably one of the longest, but it was fun and worth it at the end, the ride was interactive, we had to wear 3D glasses and try to aim at the different targets that had different points. Mickey's Fun Wheel was a unique ferris wheel: it had normal gondolas and swinging gondolas. We also went on Silly Symphony Swings and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. 

Here are other photos we took and I hope you enjoy them. Thanks for reading!
