"The Journey" to the Disney 24 hour party

It's time for another quote challenge at  Lasting Memories.  This time the challenge is "The Journey".  So I guess I should explain why my page goes with this theme.  If you don't care just skip the story and check out my layout.  
This year my family blessed me with a Disney annual pass so I could go to Disney with them more frequently.  We planned to go for a 3 day trip beginning May 22nd for the 24 hour event.  We knew it would be crowded as it was the opening weekend for the new parades, fireworks and shows.  
However, while driving our 2 hour trip to Anaheim, we found out (via Facebook) that Disneyland was maxed out and closed around noon. California Adventure a little later that day.
When we did arrive the lines were out the park and down the street .  
It was so bizarre.  People stood in line for hours and hours and Disneyland did not even reopen till about 4 a.m.  Needless to say we watched the fireworks from our hotel 
and waited till the next day to go.  
We had a blast seeing all the new 60th anniversary decorations and special events.  
So here are my pictures of the 24 hour event which we "journeyed to" but didn't get to attend.  
Top left pic- Is from Facebook and is the people ready to go in at 6 a.m.  (Not us!)
Top right pic- my family with the sign the next morning for the event.  (Even though it was over!)
Bottom row from left- the logo, the train station and the paper that was passed out showing Disneyland was closed.  
The diamonds were cut from Silhouette America.  

Join us this week at Lasting Memories for the challenge.  Here is your quote to inspire you,  Remember you still have time to finish the other quote challenges.  Check them out at Lasting Memories.

  1. Wow - unbelievable that Disneyland was maxed out and closed! Although I'm sure it was disappointing at the time, how fun to remember - down the road - about your journey there and not being able to get in. Definitely a "Remember the time when" moments!

  2. It's so hard to believe that Disney was maxed out and closed the park. I can't imagine how disappointing it had to be for you all and especially for the kids. But it sounds like you still had a great time anyways and that is what it is all about! Great layout my friend. Hugs, Brenda

  3. Wow, I am always amazed at how crowded the parks get... glad you still got to enjoy it and have fun despite missing out the first day. I love seeing layouts that capture more than just the very happy moments but also the mixed ones too:-)
