My sister, Claire (almost 13), rode with the kids and I to Anaheim on Monday the 10th. We checked in at the beautiful Anabella hotel, and then I left them there while I picked up Brandon from the airport. My mom and dad arrived and fed the kids. Meanwhile I ran out of gas after picking up Brandon:( When we got back we picked up Claire and went to dinner with my friend Vanessa at Naples in Downtown Disney. Best pizza ever, very authentic.
The next morning the kids received a call from Mickey (Papa Alan does a great impersonation) inviting them to come find he and Minnie at the park. The nine of us walked over to the park together but the my family split shortly to go enjoy the adult rides while we went on the kiddie stuff.
