Trapped...

inside of Disneyland...My family had quite the adventure today..

Ya see..its the DGD's 5th birthday..and to celebrate, we took her to Disneyland..at least..that was the plan!!

DH and I got there at 7:30 am..got the tickets and since DS and company were not quite there yet at 8:00 when they opened, we entered the park..DS called a few minutes later saying they were in the parking structure...and then a few minutes later that they were on the tram..so..we were standing near the gates to hand them their tickets when one of the cast members came and said we had to go past the train tunnels into Disneyland..."A security Incident"...somewhere in the esplanade between Disneyland and California Adventure..eeppp!!

They stopped letting people in!!! And we could not get out..How's that for an adventure..STUCK INSIDE DISNEYLAND...so..DS and company were not let in until after 11...turns out a really, really STUPID person stuck a suspicious rolled up 'spiritual message' in a tree...LA Times Article about Disney Closure

While we were waiting for them to decide if they were going to let folks back in, DH and I tromped all over Disneyland..getting right on to any ride..if we didn't have folks waiting on the outside and if we weren't freaked by not being ABLE to get out..we would have had a great time...

So after 11..the masses POURED into Disneyland..we met up with the grandkid..had a very expensive lunch at the Blue Bayou (the chef made us filet mignon with green beans with mushrooms and steamed spinach)...we lasted til 5 ish..and DH and I just had to leave cuz our feet were hamburger...The younger folks are still there...
