Enchanted Afternoon

After our alarming early wake up on Wednesday, we weren't in any hurry to get out and about. Mid afternoon found us at the AMC theaters in Downtown Disney to take in "Enchanted" (yes, my husband is a prince!). We enjoyed the beautiful theater and entertaining film.

We stopped for a light dinner at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen, then hopped on the monorail for a quick trip to Disneyland. The previous evening, while the rain was coming down in torrents, we stood in line for "It's a Small World" figuring we would be dry during the 15 minute ride. Sadly, (or providentially in Bob's view) the ride completely failed in a way the cast members had never seen before and we were turned away (we just went on and found Nemo figuring that we couldn't get any wetter underwater).

Wednesday we returned to Small World and successfully rode it for probably the last time until it re-opens in October after a 9 month overhaul.

We considered viewing Fantasmic, but weren't really in the mood for crowds so we hopped into our car and made it back to our hotel in time to view the fireworks from our room once again.

We had a lovely night's sleep interrupted too early by a rogue phone call. It seems there are way too many kids staying at the hotel with way too much unsupervised time on their hands who choose to entertain themselves via the phone and alarm systems.

We are still chuckling over our many misadventures (wait until you hear about our dinner at Tortilla Jo's!), but are grateful for the hilarious memories we've taken away from our little getaway to Disneyland.
