Spring Break-Day 1 & 1/2 of day 2

This Spring Break we decided to take the boys back to California. It had been quite a few years since we'd been to Disneyland and Lego Land, so we headed back. This year we sprung for staying at a resort property. We were not disappointed. Like everything with Disney, when they offer top notch service, they deliver it. Our room overlooked Disney Adventure Land. We also were able to go for a fitness walk with an employee 2 hours before the park opened. We walked 2 miles around the park, all the while gauging our route for the day and enjoying the exercise and hearing about the history of Disney.
We missed our flight the first day and had to fly out that evening. What do you do with 6 hours to kill at an airport? Well, for starters, you rent a Smart Cart and wheel up and down the ramps. Who needs roller coasters? The boys had fun collecting the carts that were left in the terminals and making a quarter here or there on them too by returning them.
As Disney resort guests, we were allowed into the parks an hour before the public, so we headed to Adventure Land to do the rides in that park. I love the rock grizzly bear behind the boys in this picture. I didn't take a lot of pictures in Adventure Land as we were focused on trying to get all the rides done in 1/2 a day (which we did, save a couple kiddie rides).
We played the Fast pass game and I do see how both parks could be done in one day (if anyone is going in the near future, I'll be glad to give you the inside scoop on how to get more rides in less time). The boys and I were waiting a few minutes for our Fast Pass start time.
That big coaster that says "Paradise Pier" is called "California Screamin'". It's a crazy fast coaster that does one big loop. A lot of fun.
