Disneyland Day 2

On the second day of our trip to Disneyland, we spent our time in the actual Disneyland park.  The very first ride we went on was Peter Pan.  Even thought it was the first ride of the day and we got there almost when the park opened, we still had to wait a little in line. Lucy made lots of friends by being her smiley happy self. 
 Next, we hit all the classic rides like Snow White, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, and Pinocchio.  Then, we headed off to do Autotopia with the kids.  They loved it! They thought it was pretty awesome that they got their own driver's license and drive a car!
 Then, we went on the under water Finding Nemo Submarine ride which was much better than I thought it would be. The graphics were amazing and it was wonderful to sit down in a cool place.
Afterwards, we headed off to ride Pirates of the Carribean, but not before Emmy and I stopped to snag a picture with Belle and see Snow White's Water garden area.
Emmy and I were able to go and catch up with everyone to ride Pirates.  Emmy was not a fan, but the boys enjoyed it!

Next, we headed off to do our fast past ride of Space Mountain.  The kids were once again a little scared which yielded another classic Hyrum comment and another hilarious picture.  Camille had the opportunity to sit next to Hyrum on Space Mountain.  Hyrum yelled to Camille a few times, "Hold on to me! Hold on to me!"  I think the ride made him a little nervous.  In the picture below, Ben is closing his eyes.  Emmy is hidden in my dad's lap and Hyrum looks like he has seen a ghost! 
 After Space Mountian, we rode the Jungle Safari ride. Emmy sweet talked Papa into holding her for awhile. It was a fun classic Disneyland ride. 
Then we went to ride the magical Dumbo ride. Hyrum insisted that he wouldn't like it, but afterwards he told us that he loved it!

 After Dumbo we went to the hotel everyone rested for awhile.  It was the best move we could make. After dinner we came back rested and refreshed to ride hard.
 The first ride we did was the Teacups.  The kids had so much fun and ended up riding this ride a few times.
  Next we used our Fast Pass for Indiana Jones.  Just Hyrum, my dad, Brandon, Millie and I went on this one. It was a lot of fun.  I think Hyrum liked it, but it made him a littler nervous. 

We also went and used our Splash Mountain Fast Pass. Emmy decided to opt out this time. She has realized that she doesn't like the rides with drops!  The boys loved Splash Mountain.  Brandon ended up getting drenched on this ride.

Then we headed over to the wonderful It's a Small World ride.  This ride was one of Emmy's absolute favorites of the whole trip.  Lucy was also a big fan as well as grandma. I think the boys secretly liked it, but they didn't want to admit it.
Next, we stopped to watch the firework show and then we hit the Alice in Wonderland ride and the tea cups again.
By the time we headed to the hotel, the kids were exhausted and were falling asleep. Ben was trying to sleep standing up and Hyrum would sit down and wait for the light to change.
 It was a wonderful second day in Disneyland!
