Last day at Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm

Yesterday we spent our last day at Disneyland.  Unfortunately it was Presidents Day holiday (or something like that), and the place was jam-packed.  It was really quite unpleasant.  We arrived after lunch intending to redo a few rides, but with wait times well over an hour for most things, we stuck with the less popular things we'd missed.  We took a ride on the monorail and train, went to the Enchanted Tiki room, and at Billy's insistence, we did redo 'It's a small world' (arrrgghhh! lol).  After that, we went for an early dinner in Downtown Disney, then went back in to watch the night shows.  'Laserman' in the Tron area was very cool, as was the 'World of Color' - even if we could only see it from the back having missed out on the prime seating tickets.  The fireworks erupted as we were walking to the bus, so that was our final farewell to Disneyland.

Today was Knotts Berry Farm - I spent much of the day minding the bag :)

First up was the Ghostrider - a 118ft high wooden rollercoaster.  Yes, Billy did this.  And loved it!

Followed by Bigfoot Rapids - I would've done this, but didn't want to get wet.  Someone had to hold the bag :)

Then Pony Express - another roller-coaster.  There's me still holding the bag...

Then we lowered the pace a bit with the dodgem-cars,

the log ride (hey, I finally went on a ride!!),

and various rides in Camp Snoopy designed for the younger set.

We also watched a Wild West stunt show which was corny but quite well done.

And that brings our USA trip to a close...  Tomorrow we'll be checking out and catching the plane back to the land down under..

Oh dear, you'll miss the home ed. book sale at the park ... hope you're not TOO disappointed.

All those rides look great in photos, heaps of fun, though Camp Snoopy is more my pace! Do you think Billy's going to have withdrawals?

Safe travels!
:) :J :) :> :} :]
These are your friends back home, looking forward to seeing you soon.
