Trip to LA started on Sunday morning at 11 AM (this time we were smart in planning to leave at 11 and started at 11). Saw cactus, cactus and more cactus of Arizona. Great visibilitiy of mountains all around and driving. We stopped at Blyth for lunch – which was again home cooked food by Mythili athai. After lunch, drivers changed and time to give some rest to Athimber and I drove. We reached close to LA and time for a short break and driver swap again. Athimber drove till we reached the Hotel.
We stayed at Quality Inn at the Anaheim Park, which is half a mile from Disneyland. Settled down at hotel, some good chat and discussion, dinner and time to sleep to get ready for Disneyland next day.
Good breakfast at Hotel and we started to Disneyland by walk from Hotel and reached there at 9:30. There was Mythili athai, Sarayu and Athimber waiting in line for us and we joined them (and cut short the time to enter). Wowwwwww. It was an absolute Fantasy land. At the end of the day felt as if we lived our day with Disney characters and we were all characters in their story. Adhruth enjoyed the Winnie the Poo ride as it was very colorful. Since Sarayu had planned earlier on the rides and areas she wanted to cover, we both decided on Divide and conquer :-). We spend a lot of time on Toon land and Adhruth enjoyed holding the Steering of the car. We took him to a play area and he seemed very familar with the slide and walked up the stairs holding my hand on one side and the rail on the other side. When the time to slide down came, he laughed and walked back and he attempted to walk the slide from down up… Enjoyed walking there in the play area. We took pictures with Pluto, Goofey and Adhruth was excited in watching all characters and play. He loved the music that was being played throughout the park and was dancing / shaking his legs in stroller. Sarayu was also busy finishing her rides and we met near the Winne the Poo ride and we got ready for the Parade at 7 PM.
It was a stunning experience at the Parade. With awesome Music, Dinsey characters all playing and having fun. 25 minutes of great excitement. It was great experience to see the audience (of all age group), celebrate and become kid in clapping, waving hands and giving flying kisses to the characters.
After the parade we returned to hotel around 9 PM. This was the first day with Adhruth where we stayed in Hotel and were roaming the entire day. Adhruth was very happy and excited. He slept only for 30 minutes during the entire day and was still happy and energetic. He slept at 9 PM and had a good undisturbed sleep till next morning.
Next day was California Adventure Park and we are getting ready for that….
