Still catching up..... We had a whirlwind trip to Disneyland in January to participate in the Never Land 5K and Tinker Bell Half Marathon. Along the way we did a bunch of park touring in a very short amount of time. We really crammed it in on this trip. Pictures are scarce because we ran around so much and forgot to take them.
Dining and Drinks
The night before the half marathon we dined at Naples (same owners as WDW's Via Napoli) with our friends Gail and John. While here we tried (and enjoyed) the Red Trolley Ale. Holly and I had to carb load so we had generic pasta and meatballs.
Some other dining: drinks at the outdoor bar attached to Catal in Downtown Disney, beignets and mint julips in Disneyland, Hagen-Daz cones, drinks and breakfast at Cozy Cone, lunch at Flo's V8 Diner, lunch at Cucina Cucamonga, lunch at Bengal BBQ, hand-made ice cream bar at Clarabell's, and several beers from the Pacific Wharf beer cart.
We finally got to ride Haunted Mansion (refurb last time we were here). We saw the return of Tiana's Jazz Show for Limited Time Magic. We rode the Matterhorn with it's new seating configuration. Holly said it reminded her of a gynie visit. The Christmas overlay was still up for It's a Small World - We loved it! This ride is so much better here vs. Disney World. Disneyland was crowded that Sunday so we ended up skipping a lot of attractions - we didn't even go into Tomorrowland. We were in WDW the week before so we felt like we weren't missing much overall. We may have really wanted to celebrate the end of the Coast to Coast Challenge with some other snacks and beverages not found in Disneyland.
We possibly did a lot more. Photos just aren't there filling in the memory gaps. There are a few more priority projects to do before we can go through out Disneyland non-race videos. That means we may have another post coming up....
