More California Adventure Pictures

Dinner is served....  Okay, not now, but sometime in the future.  There was a lot of walls like this in California Adventure.  They are constructing new attractions.

Mr. Potato Head entertained us for a few minutes, while we were waiting in line to go on Toy Story Midway Mania.
Toy Story Midway Mania is a new ride that Dad, Chris, Emma, Madi and I waited in line for about an hour to ride.  It was by far our longest wait for a ride.  Most rides were 15 minutes or less due to our use of RideMax, but since this was a newer ride with no fast past, this was the best we could do.  The line was even longer the night before when we walked past it.  Anyways, since this was a new ride and it says it's a 4D experience the rest of the group decided not to go, just in case it was too much for Alice and Rusty.  I have to say, it was worth the wait.  It was fun.  My competitive video gamer of a husband had a grand time.  

My little girl, who is afraid of loud noises and has such a sensitive heart, is a dare devil.  Would of never guessed it?  I know, me neither.  Although she has always been one to try new things.  Madi's favorite ride of our trip was Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, but it was followed by a close second with California Screamin.  I was against Madi going on this ride.  She's my baby and it's too dangerous, not to mention, what if she hates it and will be deathly scared of rides for the rest of her life?  
Chris and Darryl (my brother) went on the ride first.  Then came off to switch with Anne.  No adult was brave enough to go on with her, but Madi was.  After I measured her and saw that she was 2 to 3inches past the measure post and talked it over with Chris, we said yes.  She jumped for joy, grabbed Auntie Anne's hand and disappeared into the crowd.  The rest of the group made their way over to where the ride takes off.  We got to see them take off and watch them go around and upside down.  Then we headed off to where they get off the ride.  I was anxiously waiting for them to come off the ride so I could comfort by baby girl or join her in excitement.  It was excitement!  She came walking up to us with a smile beaming across her face.  Although, when Uncle Darryl asked if she wanted to go on it again with him, she politely declined.  I think she was with her dad in that once a day is plenty for Screamin.  

Friday, Chris and Madi went on Mickey's Fun Wheel (in a car that did't move).  As you can see, it is a gigantic ferris wheel.  After Screamin, Madi took her partner, Auntie Anne and went on it again.  In the middle picture of the above three, Chris took a picture from their car of Emma and I on the ground.  We are the two miniature people on the front left of the picture.  

Can't get enough of the carousels.

Redwood Creek Challenge Trail....

This was the last picture of our trip at the last few moments of our Disneyland vacation taken at midnight.  Good-by Disneyland, we will miss you.
