On this most special day, I can't think of anything better to do than reminisce about our visits to this magical place. How about sharing a visit where you either surprised someone with a visit and/or was surprised by a visit to The Happiest Place On Earth? I will start! Even though I grew up about 15 miles from DL, I was only able to visit an amusement park every few years growing up. One year in the mid-70's, I was about 7/8/9, my mom said we were going to Knotts! Well as much as we were excited about going to an amusement park, my siblings and I were disappointed we weren't going to Disneyland. :-( So the fun day finally arrives and us kids jump into the back of the truck (covered with a shell, remember this was before seatbelt laws). Off we go. Now I was a nerdy kid who was obsessed with maps, I could give you directions to anywhere in the Western US. So I'm laying on the makeshift bed propped on my elbows, looking through the pass through glass towards the front of the truck. My stepfather, mom and aunt are in the cab. So we are cruising down the 91, I'm keeping track of the off ramps, yup getting closer to Beach Blvd. But wait, WE PASS Beach Blvd and get on the 5. So I start pounding on the window, try to telling them they passed the offramp and they are on the WRONG FREEWAY! I tell my siblings, now we are all freaking out! How am I going to give my stepfather directions back to Knotts if they can't hear me? Now we are all pounding on the glass. Finally my aunt turns around. Through sign language we are trying to tell her the dilemma. But she is not getting it!! Arg!! I notice we are slowing down, I look up and we are getting off at Harbor Blvd. What?!?! I start screaming to my siblings, "I think we are going to Disneyland! We are at Disneyland!!" All three of us are freaking out! Sure enough I go back to my post on the bed and Yes! we turn right into the Disneyland driveway. I CAN NOT BELIEVE IT!! We park, my mom comes around and unlocks us from the back. "Are you surprised?!" I swear that was the Happiest Day of my life to that point. The adults could stop laughing at me telling my story. This day was so great I even forgot about being upset at having to wear matching clothes with my sisters lol. I am so grateful that almost 40 years later I have this magical memory as clear a day in my heart. :-). Looking forward to reading your stories! (And thanks for reading my book lol)

So far this summer, Saturdays have been the quietest days of the week due to the Annual Passholder block outs. Today, wait times weren't too bad in both parks, with crowd indexes hovering around 60-70 at DL and 50-60 in DCA. - BaseballMickey_CM Jun 28, 2014 11:24PM
