Disneyland x California Adventure

Following my San Francisco adventure, we drove down to SoCal to visit Disneyland last weekend (July 19). It was sorta my 18th birthday celebration with my family. Obviously, Disneyland is the best way to celebrate my adulthood. Am I right? We got to Anaheim in LA around 4 in the afternoon so we went straight to our hotel, and later on checked out Downtown Disney. We got extremely hungry around 5 since we didn't really have a proper lunch. So we walked around the place and checked out the restaurants. We ate at the Jazz Kitchen, and we weren't pretty happy with the food we ate. After eating, we headed back to our hotel to unwind and get charged up for the next day.
The next day we headed to the park. Upon entering the park, we walked straight to our favorite rides:
  • Indiana Jones - my all-time favorite
  • Pirates of the Caribbean - we got stuck in this ride for a good 15 minutes! Not cool.
  • Big Thunder Mountain - I think we rode this roller coaster a couple of times. I love it.
  • Space Mountain - we rode this after a heavy lunch. Thank goodness the wait was an hour, or else I might have barfed. 
  • Autopia
  • Astrobalsters - I rode with my little cousins. I dominated! I got a final score of 104 000. That's pretty good right?
  • The Haunted Mansion - we rode this after we came back from the other park, Disney's California Adventure. I was scared in the beginning cause I didn't know what to expect. I was really terrified with the part the room "stretched". But the ride wasn't bad at all.
We had lunch at the All American Roundup and Barbecue behind Big Thunder Mountain. They serve all you can eat barbecue ribs and chicken, corn bread, salad, and beans. It was so good. I definitely recommend.
We left Disneyland around 4pm, and walked across to Disney's California Adventure. The last time I was there (three years ago), there were still in the process of building Carsland, and I didn't ride Tower of Terror because I am so afraid of vertical drops. I do not like the feeling you get when you fall vertically on a amusement park ride. Anyway, the first thing we rode was Tower of Terror (yay). My little cousins called me "chicken" when I told them that I didn't want to go, so I braved up (haha). The "lobby" of the "hotel" was pretty spooky and cool. Also, I really like the creepy doll on the couch by the front desk. I enjoyed the ride, but... I still dislike vertical drops. After Tower of Terror, we walked our way to Radiator Springs. The place seriously looked like the movie. I felt like I was in the movie. While we were there, we met Lightning McQueen and we saw Mater. (I am still wondering how the car moved around!) After meeting him, we rode Radiator Springs Racers, which is apparently the most popular ride in the park.
Disneyland and California Adventure looks so pretty at night! 
We left the park at 1am. I was literally dragging my feet to our car because they were too tired. We were all tired that everyone immediately went to bed when we arrived at the hotel. It was a very tiring day, but we had fun and that is what matters.
