The Happiest Place blah blah...THE RIDES!!!!!!

Badge lovingly hand-crafted by J for me to wear...all day...

Returning to my big 40th birthday Disney extravaganza (yep it's still all about me on this blog!) this one is all about....

THE RIDES

So hang on tight people...

It all began with a gentle tour around the Disney Park aboard the Disneyland Railroad...

...followed by a visit to Phantom Manor











...dropping in to Indiana Jones' Temple of Peril and cruising past the underground Blue Lagoon restaurant with the Pirates of the Carribean.









The thrills really started inside Space Mountain: Mission 2...









before levelling off again with an annoyingly uni-lingual flight with Star Tours (commentary all in French!!!!) and a cheese-y sojourn through It's a Small World.









And that was day one...
Day two was in the Disney Studios Park with even more thrills and spills...there was the Studio Tram Tour...









followed by the Armageddon Special effects experience, the Motors Action Stunt Show Spectacular (not really a ride as such but just as thrilling - more on this later) and then the ultimate thriller...
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror...











Our final day saw us start with the Rock n Roller Coaster (and a few choice phrases directed at 'the big man upstairs' - after all it was a Sunday!)...

followed by a few tamer experiences...Flying Carpets of Agrabah









Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and The Adventures of Pinocchio...








and last, but not least, the giant teacups (or in its more official capacity, the Mad Hatter's Tea Cups).
Turning 40 really was one hell of a ride.......
