We went to Disneyland!
Since we arrived at about 9, the crowds were still a bit down. We raced onto Star Tours, a fabulous Star Wars themed ride, which has recently been updated. It was the best! We got flown to Hoth and zoomed around the AT-ATs (that's the marching bad guy machines, as seen at Legoland yesterday).
I sent the others onto space Mountain, a scary roller coaster, while I had a go on Tomorrowland Terrace (that's a coffee shop). Coffee came out to $3.01 when the tax was added. I automatically rounded down in my head, but no, here they want the 1c. So now we have 99c in change.
And the rest of the day was very Disney. We went on all the good rides, it was all fun and so well done. Here's the boys at the front. As often happens, I didn't take a lot of photos in the park. Too busy doing stuff, and it's more fun to see with your eyes.
There are signs at every ride showing the waiting times, as well as a booking system where you can make an appointment for later and not stand in line. A lot goes on behind the scenes to make all of that work - I'll bet a lot of it happens in the IT department!
