We had one unfortunate hiccup in our trip because we were cheapskates and booked a cheap hotel. The room smelled bad and somewhat resembled a prison cell, the beds were hard and people were talking outside our hotel room all night. So needless to say, I got no sleep. The next morning we knew we needed to change hotels so we had to pay a fee and then pay the increased costs for a new hotel. We definitely ended up spending more than we would have had we just paid for the nicer hotel in the first place. Moral of the story is...when you try to be a cheapskate, you end up paying more to fix the problem than you would have had you just paid more originally (this is not the first time this has happened to us but hopefully we have finally learned from our mistake).
After this hotel situation was taken care of, however, the rest of our trip was smooth sailing and Disneyland made us forget all about our rocky start :-).
First off you'll see the Courthouse I REALLY wish I could practice at with my new law degree :-). Next is the old office manager lady from Monster's Inc. It was funny/creepy when I was taking this picture at the end of the ride and she said "Young lady in the third row, make sure to get my good side" Haha (yes I was sitting in the third row). Was it just coincidence or was someone controlling her and watching me? I guess we will never know. Next up are pictures of Reed and I just hanging out in Toontown and Reed doing his signature pose in front of Buzz Lightyear (He didn't look this happy after the ride...more on that to come).
After our first day at Disneyland we wanted to go out for some Middle Eastern food because it's so hard to find in Utah and they have fantastic Middle Eastern places in California. We found this little hole-in-the-wall-esque place and it was FANTASTIC. They started us out with some really delicious complimentary soup, olives, and pickled beats. Then we ordered Hummus, Labneh and lamb shanks that came with the most incredible Tatzika I have ever tasted (lamb shanks and Tatziki not pictured). If you have never tried Middle Eastern food, I highly recommend it.
posted a video last year). Unfortunately we didn't take pictures of the water show...Reed took some videos but the ones from last year are better anyways cause our seats were a little better last time.
