Disney Day 5: Thanksgiving Day

On Thanksgiving Day we woke up and headed out for our last day at the parks! I didn't know what to expect as far as crowds on a holiday, but once we got there I quickly realized we were not alone in celebrating Thanksgiving away!
That day was our park hopping day! Back and forth alot to get in everything we either didn't do on previous days, or just wanted to do again!
So here we go...
Lane wanted to ride RSR again, so we knew we had to do that first thing in the morning or it wouldn't happen, so we started the day at California Adventures, ran straight to RSR and Paul and I each got to ride it one last time!

Then Lane and I hit up Tower of Terror, while daddy took Levi on some rides in Bugs Land!

Lane liked it better this year!

On our way out of CA, we saw Santa and Mickey Mouse!! Note our UT gear, it was game day, so we had to support our team!!

We then headed to Disnyland park...right after we entered, we hit the character jackpot!! There were so many at the front! Maybe bc it was Thanksgiving! And lots of new characters that we didn't see last year, so that was fun!

We rode Jingle Jungle Cruise! Everything was decorated for Christmas!

For our Thanksgiving meal, we headed over to Goofy's was so good and the boys had fun! And yes, we had turkey!

After lunch we rode more rides, including Levi's first "big" roller coaster! He didn't like it at all on the ride, but said he did after!

Around six, we headed to DD to ESPN Zone again, to watch the first half of the Texas-TCU game! While there Lane drew this sweet pic for nanny and we sent it to her! By the end of the half we were more than ready to leave! #brutalgame
 More rides, more walking, and before we knew it, it was nighttime! We staked out spots for Fantasmic, and while waiting Paul and I took turns taking Lane on Splash Mountain! 
**NOTE: if you want to literally walk onto this ride, which is unheard of during the day, wait till night, right before the show!

Then it was showtime...

After the show, we rode Big Thunder Railroad one more time, took in the castle one last time, and left full of memories!!

Friday morning we had a late flight, so we ordered room service, played with new toys, and took our time packing up!

We had such a blast that week! There's nothing more I love than these three boys and I love making memories with them!! Even though I'm pretty sure we won't be heading back again next Thanksgiving, the boys seem to think otherwise!! Another great family trip in the books!!
