Day two was a full on Disneyland day. Scarlett decided to go with her Ariel dress that day and was totally a glam princess.
They had a really cool mural in Downtown Disney promoting Inside Out and Nick and Scarlett had a blast posing as all of the different emotions. Disgust is Scarlett's favorite.
Before we even made it to the park, we had to make a quick stop in Sephora so Nick could snag a sunscreen sample and Scarlett could get all sparkly. She even got some super cute red lips.
Once we made it into the park, Space Mountain was our first stop. The line was pretty long so Nick ran up to get FastPasses while Scarlett and I stayed in the Star Wars store and made our own droids. Scarlett loves all the different hat/ear options.
Once Nick got back with the passes [which weren't good until 5pm - six hours later!] one of the cast members overheard us talking about how we don't do well at Disneyland in the summer because of the heat and the crowds. We're definitely off-season fans. She asked us if we'd like to just get on Space Mountain right then. Of course we did! She walked us right up through the back entrance and we were on the ride within minutes. It was the most awesome thing! Cathy is the greatest!
We were so happy and excited!
I completely covered Scarlett in the ride photo - Oops!
After we did Space Mountain it was on to princess time! We stopped by the wishing well and sure enough, within 30 seconds Aurora showed up!
Then it was off the meet Snow White...
After the princesses we were exhausted from the heat and the crowds and we decided to head back to the hotel for a few hours to rest and play in the pool. It was just what we needed.
We even saw some baby ducklings on our way back!
After our rest, we made our way back to the park for the evening. Nick and Scarlett did a bit of dancing in Downtown Disney.
And we got to watch the fireworks! They were wonderful and I cried like a baby, as usual.
Scarlett wanted to show us "it's a small world" [she had come the evening before with her grandpa and ridden it] so we got in line and she was beaming from ear to ear. She was so excited to tell us all about the ride and all the different countries it shows.
It was my favorite part of our trip - listening to Scarlett explain the ride to us and helping her look for all the hidden Disney characters throughout the ride.
We of course had to ride the teacups and Nick snuck his frozen lemonade on the ride and cracked us up by drinking it while we were spinning.
Scarlett got her magic feather and rode with me on Dumbo!
We went on Pirates of the Caribbean and Scarlett fell asleep during the ride. She was completely exhausted and Nick carried her to the train station and we made our way back to the hotel.
Scarlett did an amazing job - especially since we stayed at the park until they closed at midnight! It was such a fun, FULL day!
Stay tuned for our last Disneyland day!
