Cid Girls 24 Hour Disney Adventure

Since moving to Orange County about 7 months ago, I decided to explore and spend more time in my new town.  Well lucky for me one of the worlds biggest and best attractions is right in my back yard.  I literally live so close to Disneyland, we have a view of the fireworks every single night.  Taking advantage of living this close to the magic kingdom, I couldn't resist buying an annual pass. On May 24, 2013 Disneyland decided to have another 24 hour day, which opened at 6 am Friday and would close on 6 am Saturday.  The first ever Disney 24 day was back in February 29th for leap year.  I missed that day so made sure I didn't miss this one.  It was also a good excuse to hang out with my nieces, one who just came home from her first year of college.  Another niece is leaving in August for college.  So off we went to Disneyland, my 3 nieces and I for a full day of fun.   

Oh boy what did I get my self into!!  These girls of mine were determined to stay at the park as long as possible.  We hopped between both parks all day.  We started our day at Disney California Adventure, which wasn't as crowded as expected.  Several rides later we exited for some lunch.  Local tip avoid the high price and long lines inside either park and go out to eat in the Downtown Disney District.  They have several chain restaurants and other small cafes where you can eat and relax.  We ended up at one of my fave spots, Earl of Sandwich, you can get a really yummy sandwich, salad, wrap or soup with several choices of sides and desserts.  I highly recommend the brownie creme sandwich, its huge and good for sharing.  Oh did I forget to mention its delicious too.  Plus you won't spend an arm & leg for a sandwich and drink, all menu items are very reasonably priced.

After our yummy lunch at Earl of Sandwich, we headed over to Disneyland.  Now that place was really crowded and wait times for the big rides were 1.5-2 hrs.  Umm no thank you, since I have an annual pass, those rides were avoided.  We still managed to get on a few other rides and had a great time.  By night fall the park seemed to get busier and more crowded.  I think most people came late in the day to spend the entire night at Disneyland.   My nieces and I ended our wonderful day together watching the World of Color show at California Adventure.  It was all our first time experiencing this show.  Let me tell you it was an awesome experience.  The show is amazing, filled with colors, all your favorite Disney characters and music.  I think a few people left teary eyed from the magical show.  How do those Disney people come up with such wonderful entertainment?  I was in awe and left with a smile on my face.  Its a must see show if you go to California Adventure, but make sure to get a fast pass to ensure you get a spot.  They have 2 shows a night starting at 9:30pm.  I promise you will not be disappointed!  Over all the day was great and I really enjoyed spending time with my nieces.  It's a rare occasion the Cid girls all get together to have fun nowadays.  They are not those little cute girls I would baby sit and play with any more.  Any fun time I get to spend with them is wonderful and treasure the memories we created.

P.S. I only made it through about 12-13 hours of the 24 hour day.
