Disney in a "Giving" Mood

We endured the bone chilling (hey, I’m a native Southern Californian, it was damn cold for me) cold yesterday to hang out at Disneyland.

Usually we skip California Adventure, but my son has become enamored of the Jellyfish Jump, so we find ourselves doing that couple of times, maybe some Mulholland Madness, that Adventure Play Park thing that I don’t even know the name of, and a few other things.

For some reason, we decided to go into the Disney Animation attraction, and are greeted with special “Year of a Million Dreams” Micky Mouse Ears. Dang, we wanted the suite, not some hats! But, we accepted them, of course.

Then at one point we were lounging inside the Grand Californian, and a cast member walked up to us and handed my son some little toy binoculars that were actually promotional material, but hey, they worked.

I looked at my husband and said, “We’ve got to come back more often! Look at how much free stuff we got!”

He looked at me.

“All we got were some hats and some toy binoculars.”

And I replied, ‘Yeah, but we got more today than we have in the past ten years!”

    You’re on the right track for the suite!

    Ooh! If you win you’ll have to take a million pics so Jon and I can sit a marvel at what we can’t win. :-(

    Dave, Well. Uh. I don’t know how to put this. Um. I’ve already marveled in person. Hehe. You know you can win Dave, it’s only current Cast that can’t. =(

    Gina, I secretly like the Jumpin’ Jellyfish. Don’t tell! Course with the renovations approaching you had better make sure your son rides it sooner rather than later – it will soon be gone.
