For Christmas, Josh’s parents got us and his sister’s family Disney gift cards. They rented a VRBO a mile from Disney and it was perfect!
Whits family drove while we flew with Josh’s parents and whit’s youngest Ezra( since he was free and would do much better on the 1.5 hour flight vs the 10 hour car drive).
The flight there we actually got deplaned because the plane had an issue. That was a bummer, but honestly the later flight allowed us to eat dinner and let the kids run around. They did great on the flight!
That night we all slept and woke up bright and early and headed to Disneyland!
It was pretty busy, but the weather was great(no rain) and we got on all the rides we wanted except space mountain. The wait was too crazy. We would take turns watching the kids or taking them on rides while the others rode bigger rides, it was great. Pirates and the Matterhorn was closed, such a bummer!
We had yummy eats, and the kids didn’t have any meltdowns, they were all so excited for rides and seeing a few characters.
J got to meet Darth Vader thanks to Grandma Lee Ann and he was pretty pumped for that.

J was finally tall enough to ride most rides, his fav was Indiana jones and star tours.
J and I went on Splash Mountain a second time with Papa, haha!
The nights got pretty chilly, I’m glad I brought warm clothes for the kids so we could stay for the parade. Lee Ann had saved us a great spot for the parade, but we were late(riding star tours again) and I was pretty beat. We watched part of the parade and then walked back to the house. The rest of the family met us there shortly after. It was a successful first day!
