Spent about 12 hours in the park today being a tour guide for my aunt and cousin who are visiting from the east coast. Got there at park opening, stocked up on Fastpasses and tried to ride every major attraction in the park, while throwing in some few trivia and tidbits.

Dont forget to grab a sweet treat from Maurice's Treats! At the time, (isn't there more now?) the adorable cart featured 3 “Twists” and a new signature beverage: Boysen Apple Freeze.
In a tribute to the historic Carnation Plaza Gardens, a shield over the archway leading from Fantasy Faire to Rancho del Zocalo in Frontierland displays the letters “CPG.”
