My first annual passport

Even though I’ve lived in Anaheim most of my life, and Orange County my entire life, I’ve never owned a Disney Annual Passport. That is until yesterday, and I found it made my disneyland going experience very different.

There were quite a few things that I had wanted to do at Disneyland yesterday, but didn’t get the chance to. I’ve never been on Soaring Over California, and I hear it’s a good ride, so I wanted to check it out. But I didn’t get the chance, by the time Jill and I made it over to DCA we didn’t have a few hours to spend in line if we wanted to have a good place to view the fireworks from. But it was no big deal skipping Soaring, we can just go back another time and hop on when the lines aren’t so long.

We also only got to go on Space Mountain once, an hour before the park closed the line was still over two hours long. And Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters had some problems later in the day, so we only got to go on that once as well. But that’s ok, we can easily go back later.

Worst of all, and the thing that I would have been most pissed at if I didn’t have the annual pass, is that the fireworks show was cancelled. There are many nights when I’m driving home along the 91 or going up Harbor where I can see the fireworks. I’ve really been wanting to see them from inside the park. I’ve known for months that I was going to go to Disneyland yesterday, so I’ve been waiting patently to see them. Had I not bought the annual pass, and had the fireworks show been canceled, I would have been pissed. But as it is, I can just go back and check it out some other day.

    If you want to get on Soarin without waiting in line, use a Fastpass, or even better, get a single rider pass from the person working the entrance. Watching the fireworks from in front of the castle is an amazing expe3rience.
