First longish drive of the holiday - about 35 miles to Anaheim, in peak hour.. and then woo hoo!  Disneyland! 
Managed to get through all but one of the "lands", saving Tomorrowland for.. ahem.. tomorrow. 
Best ride?  Draw between Splash Mountain and Indiana Jones so far.  Even though they weren't as exciting as the rides at Universal Studio, being geared more towards the kiddies, lots of effort on the actual presentation of the rides which gave them their excitement.
Worst ride?  It's a small world.. a full 15 mins of listening to.. "it's a small world after all", while riding around in a boat looking at dummies dressed up in costumes of people from around the world (and you know I hate freaky dummies).
Almost NO queues for rides, couldn't believe our luck.  The longest we had to queue was to meet Mickey mouse :)  Yes.. got my picture taken with Mickey.. and Minnie.. hey.. at least I didn't buy mouse ears.

After Disneyland, went to see the ice hockey... Anaheim Ducks (who calls an ICE HOCKEY team ducks?) vs. Nashville Predators (now that's a name).
Ducks won - I know that because the score at the end read 3 to 1, and all 10000 people in attendance were happy.  Don't ask me to explain any rules other than the little black thing has to go in the net.. and not our net, their net :)  Oh.. and apparently, you're allowed to fight and the entire crowd eggs you on.  To my amusement, the kid behind us was saying that they get suspended at school if they fight - hah.. parents explain THAT!

More Disneyland tomorrow.. bring on Space Mountain!
