Halloween at Disneyland With Our Friends!!!!

A couple days ago, we enjoyed  Disneyland with our friends for the Halloween celebration.

We received Fastpasses to Ghost Galaxy and rode the Haunted Mansion Holiday. It was one of my friend’s first times, but she liked it. Even though there  was a fifty minute wait, it was worth it. First, we ventured into the Stretchy Room. It is an elevator that leads underground. On the ride, we saw dancing ghosts wearing Christmas hats. Additionally, we saw some singing flowers.

After that, we headed over to Small World. Our friends came out to meet us.

While they were talking, we skipped over to the to Clarabelle’s hand-scooped ice cream shop in California Adventure. You can get one big scoop for $4.99. Also you can get two big scoops for $5.49. It comes with a waffle cone or cup for no charge.  As we were eating our ice cream, we met our friends.

After that, we rode California Screamin’. To our surprise, we got to ride it two times because the line was short.

Next, we rode Toy Story Mania. It feels like you are in a 3-d video game arcade. I earned a bird. It is the 3rd level.

Next, we rode the Golden Zephyr. I took a video, but it didn’t turn out good because it was dark.

After that, we rode Jumping Jellyfish where you go up and down like Tower of Terror. It is slower and smaller, though. Last of all, we rode Ghost Galaxy and walked to the car. What is Ghost Galaxy? Click this link to read my previous post about it.

We had such a great day!!!!!!!!

The Planetarium

We arrived at the Tessman Planetarium and discovered to be the first ones for our weekly field trip.

Fifteen minutes later, our friends came. I took pictures of some of the frames and toys.

  • A Buzz  Lightyear toy stayed in the space station for a year.
  •  An astronaut  stayed in the International Space Station for a year. His brother sent him a gorilla suit for Halloween.
  • The biggest volcano in the solar system,  Olympus Mons ,  is 26 km (16 mi) high. It is located on planet Mars, the 4th planet in the Solar System.

We learned about so many things and asked so many questions. After our field trip, we went to Taco Bell with our friends for lunch. We had such a good time.

Halloween at Disneyland!!!

 

We adventured to Disneyland a couple days ago for the Halloween celebration!

First, we rode Ghost Galaxy in Tomorrowland.

It was only a 20 minute wait and very different from Hyperspace Mountain. In Hyperspace Mountain, there are ships in a battle, but in this there is a ghoul attacking you.

Next, we hopped onto the 15 minute line of Star Tours. We experienced  the Hoth battle in a 4-D ride.  An AT-AT almost smashed our ship, and we fell down a cliff. After that, we met some friends in Frontierland.

We zoomed over to the Haunted Mansion  and received Fastpasses.Then, we rode Indiana Jones Adventure. I got the steering wheel. (Too bad for me because I’m not a good driver. The wheel is fake, though.) I have to say the Indiana Jones line is great. There’s so much scenery like the cave and the poles that make noise. The ride is super fun.

After that, we rode the Haunted Mansion Holiday featuring The Nightmare Before Christmas story. They only change it for Halloween and Christmas. There were ghosts dancing at a party, and it smelled like ginger bread. We also saw a lady’s head in a ball talking.

 

 

 For a snack, we glided to Ghirardelli in California Adventure. I received a vanilla milkshake with whipped cream and a cherry. It was very rich and creamy. Excitedly, we whooshed to the Annual Passholders’ lounge. We met Meeko from the movie, Pocahontas.  Finally, we rode Monster Inc. There was no line except for one family  in front of us. We staggered to our car and drove home. We had such a fun time!

 

My Fox

I love my stuffie fox, Tod, and I would like to tell you why. It is is Tod from Disney’s Fox and the Hound. His tail is about 3 feet long and acts like a warm scarf.

If you love foxes, this would be the best stuffie to get.

You can only get it at Disney Theme Parks or Downtown Disney. I would rate it 5 stars. This also would be good for a present.  I received this as a birthday present from my cousins. My sister likes to play stuffies. While we are playing, he joins the gang. Overall, it is a great item.

The Newport Beach Police Station

Thank you for your service, police officers! I appreciate you for keeping us safe.

We visited  the Newport police station with some of our homeschool friends. The first stop was the conference room. Then we met the chief police.

He does not go after the bad guys. He does work and is the boss of the officers. He told all about his job including his many meetings. Next we went to the meeting room. There was a presentation going on inside the room. We did not stay in that long. Next, we went to the firing target room. After that, we went to the visitor room. If their was someone in jail a relative could talk to them behind a glass window. From there, we went to the Juvy holding room.

Thank you for your service, police officers!  I appreciate you for keeping us safe. 

Kids would go in there if they did something wrong. They wouldn’t get to leave until their parents picked them up.

We also went inside a jail cell with only a drinking fountain and a toilet.

 

The jail was only holding one prisoner. We met an officer and he talked about his taser. It locks the criminals’ bones for five seconds. Next we went to the 911 room. After that we took some pictures and our field trip was over.

Angel Stadium

We arrived  to Angel Stadium for a field trip with our homeschool group and took a tour.

First, we looked at the world champion trophy.  Next, we took an elevator to the press conference room. They have meetings and team drafts there. We also went to the announcer’s box and the Gene Autry room. After that, we took an elevator down to the opponent’s locker room. There was a whole small room with candy for the players.

 Also, there was a bathroom full of toiletries.

 

The  hospitality suites could fit twelve people and cost $250,000. It is mainly for businesses. We went to the Angels’ dugout. In the past, the team swung their bats and broke the walls.

 We had such a fun tour!

To all the fans of Tower of Terror, it will be closing January 2nd.   After that, we ate a Mickey sourdough bread for dinner.

We also got a milkshake at Ghirardelli. And for our last ride – Toy Story Mania! We waited a in  a 45 minute line. It was worth it.
