Route 66(ish) Day 25

It is a truth universally acknowledged that every visitor to Orange County, CA, will visit Disneyland.

We'd already been to Disneyland Paris when it was new (and our children had gone back more recently). The day didnlt get off to a marvellous beginning when we found that one of our favourite rides (Big Thunder Mountain) was undergoing renovation, and the Radiator Springs Racers (which we'd had recommended) was broken. So we split up (parents/children) and went to find things that suited our diferent tastes. We're not so much into white-knuckle rollercoasters these days, but had on some of the VR rides (Soarin' Over California and Star Tours). We saw all of Tony Starck's suits of Iron Man armour on display. We went round the Haunted House, did Pirates of the Caribbean twice, wandered about admiring the scenery (especially the "Route 66" stuff in Carsland), saw the Muppets 3D Experience twice, watched a parade, had an excellent dinner in the New Orleans Cafe, and finally saw the Wonderful World of Color, which combines Bellagio-like fountains (as Hilary remarked, Disneyland's imitation of Vegas!) with a carefully-controlled mist effect upon which are projected scenes from various Pixar films. In all, we were there for around thirteen hours, and felt we'd had a grand day out.

Oh, and having failed to see any real Saguaro cacti in Arizona, we were able to see a replica in Disneyland.

Please say you went on "Soarin' Over California". We liked it so much in 2004 that we got in line twice.

Sorry we didn't take you around the corner to see the big sagueros at the water district, but glad you are still having a good time!

Persephone - we loved it (only went on it once as it was quite busy). Joe - after our time in Vegas it's hard to distinguish real from fake, whether it's cacti or gondolas. We're still having a great time, thanks.
