Disney Day 4: Park Hopping!

***Finishing up Disney Posts***
Wednesday was our last day of park! We were going to use our park hopper to go back and forth between the two parks to finish everything up! After starting our last day with our character breakfast we started at California Adventure!
We got there shortly after the park opened, and went straight to see Santa! I couldn't pass up the opportunity to see Santa at Disney!! There was NO line when we got there so the boys got to walk right up! Score!

After Santa, we went straight back to Paradise Pier for Toy Story Mania! But first we rode the big Ferris wheel!

There were some awesome views from up there! This is Car's Land...mainly the Radiator Springs ride! 

Our hotel!

On our way over to the ride, we saw Jessie and Buzz!!! The boys were so excited!!!

Toy Story Mania had quite a bit of a wait, so I took Levi with me to stand in line while Paul took Lane to ride Goofy's Sky School! After that they met up with us in line and we all rode Mania! It is a super cute, fun ride!!!
Last on our to do list was to catch the Disney Jr. Live in Stage show! We knew Levi would LOVE this show!!

We got inside and everyone sat on the floor!

They had a little pre show entertainment for the kids! Levi was playing right along!

Then the show started and I knew immediately it was going to be super cute!! And then about five minutes into the show, the lights came on, the music went off, and someone came out to tell everyone the show had been cancelled for technical difficulties! All those poor kids were devastated and didn't know why they were leaving!! So sad! And we never did make it back over to catch a later show, next time for sure!

Other than the night show at California Adventures, we had officially done it all! So it was time to "hop" on over to Disneyland to catch everything we missed there!

First up was the Jungle Cruise! A long wait but a must do for the kiddos!

After the Jungle Cruise, we made our way to the other side of the park. On the way we stopped for some face painting!

Our next ride was It's a Small World! It was decorated so cute for the holidays! Everything was picture worthy, but here's a few! Both boys enjoyed this classic ride!!

Right after we got off we spotted Merida from Brave!

While walking through the castle we spotted Peter Pan and Captain Hook!! While waiting in line the Fairy Godmother chatted with the boys!

Peter Pan & Captain Hook were so good! They were by far my favorite characters that we met! They talked and joked with the boys and with each other! They both had their characters down!!

Right when we got to Disneyland, we grabbed a Fast Pass for Space that was our last thing to get done. Paul and Lane went on it first. Lane came off that ride excited as ever...he LOVED it!! I was a little unsure how he'd do, but man, he was all about it. So then he and I went to ride and he had a blast! He didn't even want me to hold onto him!! 

That was it for Disneyland park! We had done it ALL!! BY this time is was just getting dark, and it was time to "hop" back over to CA again!! We had the night show to catch later that night! While we waited we knew we wanted to walk through Cars Land at night! But first we did a quick ride on the bugs!

I will say that Cars Land is even better at night!! It was awesome with all the lights on! So So pretty.....

We never did get to meet Lightning McQueen on the first day at CA, so we were pumped when we saw him that night!! Levi was asleep!

We had some fun at Flo's!!! Again, Levi was still asleep and missed the fun! 
(These are some of my favorite pictures from the trip....if only Levi were in them!)

After walking through Cars Land we grabbed dinner and dessert then got our spots for the World of Color: Winter Dreams Night Show! It was a pretty awesome show!! Think Vegas Bellagio water show but with color and visuals!! The show was the last thing on our list, so afterwards it was time to leave and say goodbye to Disney!
 As we were leaving we made sure to take it all in. I was definitely sad to be leaving, but so grateful for all the memories we had made!! It was an amazing trip and I can't wait to go again!!!
