My mother and I flew out to California on a Thrusday morning, and I'm telling you our traveling day was nothing but headaches. Our flight from Huntsville to Atlanta was A-OK, but we had a 4 hour layover in Atlanta. Which was fine, we split a meal at P.F. Cheng's, and killed time in the airport. And I love airports for the most part. But then the quickest storm ended up rolling through Atlanta, which delayed our flight two more hours. And we had to change gates 5 times, transversing different terminals like crazy!
So we got in really late to California, after Orange County airport was closed, which means we couldn't catch our shuttle for the hotel, and had to take an unplanned cab drive.
Although it was really late when we touched down in California, I couldn't help but fall in love with our home for the next week, The Disneyland hotel. I loved the blue facades of the towers (we stayed in the Frontier tower, which had a huge model of Frontierland in the lobby). There were little Disney touches all around: the statue of Mickey & Minnie, a huge map of the parks, and mad hatter tea cup chairs in the lobby.
The pool area was awesome. There were three regular pools, 2 hot tubs, and a splash pad area that had two Monorail shaped slides.
Our room was just as nice inside. Our beds had these lovely, decorative pillows one said, "A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes," and the one on the other bed said, "When your Fast Asleep." The headboard would light up when you flipped a switch and play, "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes." It was absolutely lovely.
There was so many little Disney touches. The Mickey head on the water facet and the Mickey hands on the lamps. The do not disturb door hanger was a picture of sleepy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
We were so beat, so we went to bed. And I couldn't wait for the morning, as that would be our first day hitting the parks!
