My close friend, and his family (his sister and cousins) planned this trip about 2 months ago. (A boyfriend, friends, and family. A mix of everybody.) We should have planned it during a weekday, but some could not request their days off from work. (Obviously, less people during weekdays. Shorter wait time in rides. Oh, well.)
Disneyland on Saturday, October 29, 2016.
(Side note: The next day we went to Universal Studios as well, but some could not go because of work reasons. In a few days, I will be writing a post, "Universal Studios On a Sunday.")
Disneyland has two different theme parks, Disneyland Park (open until 7pm) and Disney California Adventure (open until 11pm).
Our last ride in Disneyland Park was Haunted Mansion, exclusively themed from the movie, "A Nightmare Before Christmas." (I believe the wait was 3 hours long. Halloween is edging closer, thus the most important ride of the day.)
Furthermore, I was very exhausted and dehydrated. During our 3-hour long wait from the Haunted Mansion ride, I was about to faint. I urgently needed any water and food nearby, and I had to urinate as well.
25 minutes later, I came back to my crew. I had to cut everybody in waiting line, while I was holding my bottled water and popcorn. People would shake their head and give me a dirty look. I heard one person say, "He's Filipino." Another person said, "Come on, man!" I gave them a look and said, "Sorry." (They were surprised I gave them eye contact.)
(Disneyland's motto is "The Happiest Place on Earth." I agree with artist, Drake rapping, "You only live once. That's the motto. YOLO.")
In Disney California Adventure, we only rode Tower of Terror. (This ride will be ending some time in early 2017. Farewell.)
Best rides - Space Mountain, Tower of Terror, Matterhorn Bobsleds
Worst ride - Nothing really. (Only the long waiting time to every ride.)
All day walking. Courtesy from Dr. Scholl's custom-fit insole. (I came prepared.) Yes, I enjoyed the Disneyland experience with my best friend and his family. All in all, I am getting old. I cannot deal with the long wait in rides. Like I said, I almost fainted. Honestly, I would use the Disneyland money for traveling to a place I have never ever been before. (Mix it up.)
My best friend's cousin photobombed me. I had no idea. Attached photo below.
