We did decide pretty last minute that we wanted to go to Disneyland as it was a hard time persuading Fab it will be worth near $200 for two days at the two parks but she eventually gave in and my quest to complete every Disneyland on the globe continues. (8 down 3 to go baby)
I personally refuse to start any day without coffee and at the moment we’re staying in Anaheim so luckily for me, we’re within walking distance of a Starbucks (thank you, lord) and a really lovely little cafe called ‘Mimi’s’ which might even be our new local. So after queuing for our tickets, regrettably hot coffee in hand, we realized it was bloody roasting (exaggerated British slang for ‘hot’) and needed to find shade or wind somewhere asap because if you haven’t noticed I’m white asf.
We ended up in the Bug’s Life area of California Adventure first and decided to jump on ‘Flicks Flyers’ – anything that flys encounters wind and even though we were in the desert last year, we’re British so complaining about the weather/temperature comes naturally to us and IT WAS TOO HOT.
I never tie my hair up – that’s how hot it was you guys…
Second up and we found our resident ride of choice and it was BOMB.
I’ve (Lissy) been to Orlando before and absolutely loved ‘Tower of Terror’ and California’s alternative to this is ‘Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout!’. We didn’t know this prior to getting on the ride but GOD DAM are we glad we found it because it was awesome.
We actually thought it was going to be a chill enough ride as in our gantry lift queue there was a little kid probably no older than five; well, let me tell you, by the time the ride was over this lil bab was crying her fucking eyes out at the horror that had just occurred – being dropped roughly 40m repetitively was enough to make Fab and me scream so this little kid must have been terrified.
We loved it so much we went on it three times and we officially certify this ride as our #1 ride not to miss. Not only because it was the best thrill, but as you rise to the top, the lift doors open or some shit open and the view you get over Anaheim and OC are actually amazing, we’re gutted we weren’t wearing the GoPro for this one for sure.
