Disneyland at Christmas
I do lots of blogs about funny things, so I wanted to do something different. I ended up deciding to do one of the most special Christmas memories that I’ve ever had. That memory is when we went to Disneyland for Christmas. How cool is that? Disneyland, one of the happiest places, at Christmas, one of the happiest times! Anyways, one morning Nina, Wyatt, and I woke up. We were walking out to the couch, but our mom stopped us. She said that we have to go into her room and wait for Mitchell to get up. Finally when he did he was quickly ushered into our mom’s room.
She said that we could slowly go out and see the table. I was as excited as an elephant who got a lifetime supply of peanuts when I saw it. At where someone sits there was a Mickey Mouse plate, a balloon with him on it was tied to something in the center of the table. next to the plates were a pack of gum and a card that said that we were going to Disneyland the very next day! That part was enough of a Christmas gift to last a lifetime, but we didn’t even go yet.
We got to L.A. at about 8 p.m. We took the airport shuttle to our hotel. by the time that we got there it was about 9:30. Our room had 2 bunk-beds and one regular bed. We put our stuff on the ground, climbed into any bed, and almost instantly fell asleep.
We woke up, and before we walked to Disneyland arranged the stuff that we put on the ground clumsily the night before. It was really warm outside, and halfway through our walk, we noticed an unusual thing. It was a white tip sort of like a mountaintop, and we could hear faint screams of pleasure coming from it. When we got inside the park we saw it, it was a mountaintop! And the screaming came from a ride inside of it. We wanted to head there, but our mom said that first we have to go on the ride called Magic Mountain. As she said it, she pointed to a cool looking building. The ride sounded cool, so no one complained.
As you may have guessed, we loved the ride. I was amazed at all of the sudden twists and turns, and especially at that fact that it was pitch black except for the “stars.” As soon as we were done we headed over to the mountain. That ride was just as cool, so I knew that I was in for a fun filled vacation.
But one of the most memorable things in the entire trip came at the end of the first day. With a grin on her face, our mom led us over to a mysterious building. It was dark outside, and almost every body had left the park. Through the darkness I could make out shapes of things like graves. There was a small line to get inside of the mysterious mansion, and as we entered the line two thoughts came into my head, that my mom had been planning this, and that this was a haunted mansion. As we waited, I heard workers calling out things like, “Move quickly, there’s no time to KILL, “ Keep walking, there’s no DEAD space. and “ Hurry up, people are DYING to be with you.” When my eyes grew accustomed to the dark, I saw graves and any thing else that might go along with a haunted mansion. But I also saw snow and mistletoe. So was this haunted mansion celebrating Christmas? It didn’t seem right.
When we entered we toured the mansion, and saw scary pictures of zombies and other things When our group got into one room the door shut itself. The walls began to move in, and then back out. a voice said for us to get in a vehicle and he would show us the rest of the mansion. The ride was themed like a movie we love. It’s called nightmare before Christmas. We loved the ride. It was our favorite ride. We enjoyed the rest of the trip. Now can you see why it’s a special Christmas memory?
