Disneyland – Part 1

“Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.” – Louisa May Alcott

Sometimes funny things happen for a reason, however small and unimportant they may seem to most people. We recently went to Disneyland for a few days. We drove six hours not thinking about the time change and that California is an hour earlier. Check-in time was 3 pm and we got there at 3 pm, which was really 2 pm, therefor we had to wait for our room to be ready. We waited over an hour and to be honest I got a little irritated!

After sitting in the lobby for about 5 minutes I got antsy and took off with my daughter to do some exploring. We came across this beautiful Christmas tree in the lobby of the Paradise Pier Hotel. I had great phone taking photographs of the tree and decorations.

After taking some pics of the tree I moved on to the poinsettia and tried out my new macro lens on my phone camera for a quick close up.

The next morning when we went downstairs to walk to Disneyland I was so excited to see the tree again, well, it was GONE! Overnight the Disney magic or elves, whatever you want to call it, took down every scrap of ornamentation! Boy was I glad our room wasn’t ready on time the night before! OMG even the poinsettias disappeared! So although we were made to wait I was so grateful for that hour of discovery.
