I realize this has nothing to do with math but it has a whole lot to do with Disney. In my humble opinion, bringing Captain EO back was BRILLIANT!
What is it about Captain EO that is so fun? I have no idea. Going to Disneyland without seeing the 3D show seems to be missing something. This last trip I went to the show (of course) and as it ended the little boy behind me said loudly “The Lincoln show was better than that!” So I realize everyone has their own opinion but I adore this show. In fact, the only thing I’ve ever bought at Disneyland is this gem.
My captain EO shirt!
Perhaps it’s the memories of belting out the music that makes me love the show so much, or maybe the fact that I think Michael Jackson is the most incredible artist in history. No matter the excuse, I think Captain EO is a must at Disneyland
Do you think Captain EO is better than Honey I Shrunk the Kids? Do you go check out this show every time too? I’m curious if I’m just crazy. (I am, I realize that.)
It was definitely the least “happy” Disney trip I’ve had. So props to Disneyland for still making me a little happy. Let me start by saying I completely take back what I said about Anaheim Harbor RV Park. I will never stay here again. I had all of my things stolen from me and the manager seemed like it was an everyday event, and really didn’t care. So don’t stay at this campsite to save money.
We didn’t get to the park until 9:30. If you’ve been reading my posts you know that this is NOT efficient practice. The day was pretty dead and so we were lucky to still ride everything we wanted to by 11:30. Here is the list and order of what we did
Pirates of the Caribbean
After this point I can’t remember exactly the order of events but I will say we did Space Mountain 3 more times and Matterhorn quite a few more. Let me put a plug in here as well for Single Rider. I’m not sure why I was forgetting how great this is, but definitely take advantage of this. We sure did on Matterhorn and it was so worth it!
We did some things that I had never done because I let Ryan guide us for approximately two hours. He opted to wait in a very long (air conditioned) line to meet Mickey. I probably wouldn’t ever do this again but it got us this cute picture so it was worth it.
Well, cute of Ryan.
We also sat through a little show about a robot called ASIMO invented by Honda. My very technologically savvy boyfriend loved it. I wouldn’t watch it again. It was a very cheesy and scripted but the robot was pretty dang cool. I admit it. More info on Asimo
I had a fabulous time despite the constant reminder of the fact that I didn’t have a cell phone and was wearing a completely awful outfit but I’m excited to head back at the end of August!

Captian EO is always fabulous.
My first cheesy castle picture.
Having a blast
I have a guilty pleasure of finding this ride magical.
