We arrived safe and sound at the land of the mouse, which is pretty easy. It's about an hour flight and we gained an hour when we hit California. I had some weird Cartel coffee and I would not say I'm a fan, but I also don't like Starbucks coffee, so there must be something wrong with me.
|Don't worry, we tipped them for pouring a cup of coffee.|
Anywho, we arrived and got to our hotel around 9:30. We were lucky and they let us have a room right away. Score! Next, we were off to the expo.
|Super helpful cast member showing me the best angle to take a picture.|
The last race I ran at Disneyland was the inaugural Dumbo Double Dare. Anyone that was there for the opening of that expo remembers the absolute cluster *^%# that occurred. This expo was practically empty. Most likely due to the fact that the masses would not be arriving on Thursday like us.
|Ahhhh, breathing room!|
|No wait for bibs.|
After that, we wandered around the expo for awhile. I made the mistake of not going directly to the official merchandise area because we snuck into the expo from the bib pick up the back way. By the time I was ready to head to the official merchandise area, the line was obnoxious. It wasn't as obscene as it was for Dumbo 2013, but still, no thanks. That's probably a good thing because I have no need for more pricey rundisney clothing that costs as much as feeding a third world child for a year.
|I definitely needed a picture.|
After that, we needed some lunch. Hydrating is obviously very important for races, so we headed straight to Trader Sam's for some fluids.
|I'm a professional, obvi.|
And then we were off to California Adventure.
I definitely prefer Cars Land at night. The neon signs and the way everything is lit up is just so much better.
|Not bad for a phone camera, right?|
|Seriously, iPhone 6 has an awesome camera.|
So yesterday was a pretty fun day. The weather is gorgeous and it wasn't crowded at all in the parks. Who else is here for Star Wars weekend?
