K closed out April with a trip to - where else? - Disneyland! Her friend Christy had discovered that one of the World of Color dining packages, the one at Ariel’s Grotto, was about to close. Not the restaurant itself, but the option to have a special fixed-price dinner there in conjunction with a front-row seat to the show afterward. Obviously this was an excellent reason to visit the Happiest Place on Earth again - and to spend extra money while there! (Just close your eyes and take deep cleansing breaths, M.)
While there, we also rode our favorite rides, took it easy with a relaxing lunch and later some wine in California Adventure Park, and even saw some incredible Lego sculptures at the Lego Store before heading to the Grotto for dinner. The food was delicious, and the desserts were exquisite. It’s really too bad they’re not going to offer it with the World of Color package anymore!
Finally, the show - up close and personal. We all got completely soaked, we were standing so close to the water. Well worth it though. We laughed, we cried (okay, K cried), and then we raced through the exiting crowds to Midway Mania and closed out the night with Toy Story. As always, Disneyland left nothing wanting. Can’t wait to go back!
