As you can see, it was wall-to-wall people at Disneyland on my birthday.
I went to Disneyland on my birthday. In. The. Rain.
One great thing about living in Los Angeles is proximity to Disneyland. It's worth it to get an annual pass if you go just a few times a years. I usually go once a month - sometimes for just a few rides and a nice stroll around the parks....the stress of having to stay 14 hours to make the best of the $80 admission isn't there. Sweet.
So, Disneyland is having a special - get in free on your birthday. But what if you already get in free on your birthday with your annual pass? You get a $72 merchandise gift card. You can only get it ON your birthday, so even though Los Angeles was washing away in a big rain storm, I was going.
It was crazy raining and there was no one at the park. It was awesome! And, I was surrounded by MY PEEPS. No, not a bus of Japanese tourists...but December 7th Birthday people! You get a special button to wear on your b-day - and the park was filled with my Birthday friends. Cool.
Umbrella, ponchos and people dressed as the Gordon Fisherman abound. However, my friend and I are native Angelenos so we don't have anything close to proper rain clothes. We left when my friend said her feet were squishy with so much water. Hey, what are good rain shoes that I can wear to walk around Disneyland for three hours? Not just run from the car to the office...but walk around in. Any suggestions would be great. Please help a weather wuss. ;) I'll trade you for the advice on the best sunscreens! :)
Again, thanks for the awesome Birthday wishes. I pretty much celebrate all month! ;)
