Happy Birthday, Joe!!! at Disneyland

Wednesday, April 4, 2007

We spent a week at Disney World in February, but Joe still wants to go to Disneyland for his birthday. It's the only thing he really wants for his birthday, so we give in and take him to Disneyland. We get up early and pull into the parking lot at 7:55am. Joe is very very excited. He loves Disney.

Our first stop in the park is at the town hall to get his free -- yes I said free -- birthday button. The girl is very bubbly and wishes Joe a happy birthday and writes his name on his button. She then tells him to pick up the phone and Goofy wishes him a happy birthday. Very cute.

The button was great. All through the day the Disney employees would wish him Happy Birthday, some more excitedly than others, but it helped make the day special.

I asked him if he wanted one of the birthday cake hats that they sell there and he said definately not, but he did try one on:

As expected (it is Easter week) the park was crowded but we managed to ride all the rides we wanted to ride at least once, except the Matterhorn. The line for that was just too long.

Jere decided to ride on Joe's favorite ride with him, Space Mountain, since it was his birthday. BUT he felt sick afterwards and ended up going out to the truck for a nap afterwards -- no more Space Mountain for Jere :-)

The fireworks at night were great and Joe thought it was great to have fireworks on his birthday. We were hoping some of the lines would go down after the fireworks, but it remained crowded. Around 11pm or so, Joe started feeling sick (I think he was exhausted) so we left.
