Disney Day 3 & 4

Day 3:

We woke up a decided to hit the rides we love at Disney that are not so crowded in the morning, such as Indian Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion to name a few. Then we go through the list and hit every ride we have yet to do. I will admit there were a few we left out of the pure fact that they were baby rides and we weren't going to wait 40+ minutes to do those, lucky for us the big rides weren't bad waits. We have a blast and do it all several times that day. We get the celebrate parade in, just before we hit It's a small world (which the kids claim is torture) so we wouldn't have to wait in the long line. That night we watched the fireworks over the castle and bought the kids ridiculously priced flashing balloons, that they loved. It was a fun day and there wasn't a ride we didn't get to do, several times.
Day 4:
Our last day. We get up and do the early morning and hit rides that we want to get in again. Noah is feeling back to normal and wants to do all the bigger roller coasters (finally). We decided to head towards California adventure and ride everything we missed and re-do the ones we loved. Again we didn't do it all, but almost all. We discovered a Monsters ride we couldn't quit laughing about and a Toy Story ride with a ridiculously long line and totally worth the wait. I have to admit, it really was the only wait. We hit California Screaming a few times. Found a great park for the kids to play in while we kicked up our feet. Then we headed back to Disneyland. (I believe I forgot to mention it was freezing that day and we didn't dress right, so the kids got some pants and Scott got a hoodie). We did more of what the kids loved and spent some time in Toon Town (they loved it there). Then I made sure we hit the Electric Parade back over in California Adventure. Then back to do the last of the rides the kids wanted a Disney. Just so you know, we hit Pirates over 10 times, Haunted Mansion at least 5, Buzz Light year 4-5, Indian Jones 5 and so on. We did it all a ton. We were there from 7 in the morning until midnight. The kids were not going to waste their last day, but it wasted us.
