Joy Dare Monday in Lent
|view from our hotel of the Matterhorn|
For the first time, we stayed late at the park to enjoy the night time entertainment, the World of Color. Oh my gosh. We got FastPasses so we'd get a good position and we did -- right in the front by the water.
Then this announcement comes over that those standing by the water will get wet. This kid next to me made a noise, so I asked him if he'd been there before, he said yes. Would we really get wet?
Oh yes, he says, but it's worth it.
Indeed it was. It was an achingly beautiful display of color, light and water, and that doesn't include the way they projected images onto the water. Incredible talent put that together. It was really like being a little kid again and being in total awe.
For the next day hubby asked me to take Dramamine so he'd have company on the rides that he really likes that make me feel ill through motion sickness. (I still don't get the point of Space Mountain but went on it and was much entertained by the little tot who sat in front of us who was practically bouncing off the walls afterward with excitement.)
That day was also Ash Wednesday, but we didn't spot any Ashes To Go opportunities outside the park, although a few people had ashed foreheads that afternoon. They must've gone to a service first.
It was getting dark in the Disneyland park when we finally decided to leave and get something to eat before the drive home. I didn't want it to end.
The cold is basically done, although there's some post-nasal drip happening. It didn't slow me down for Disneyland, but I've been dragging the last couple of days.
