Gareth had issues with Mickey's ego.

It's Mickey!!! Oh no. It's not. It's just Gareth being a twat.

...and again... STOP GOOFING AROUND!!

Gareth finally meets Mickey!


Today we went to Disneyland! As you may know it's not fully Gareth's cup of tea but he always promised Helen that we'd go!!

Well. It was both good and bad...

We got a joint ticket for Disneyland and Disney's Californian Adventure. The ticket cost $79 each, which is the best part of 90 quid for the both of us to go. It wasn't the price that cheesed Gareth off... it was the fact that half the rides were closed for refurbishment for next year because it was 'off-season'.

The thing is... it went from being a swizz to an all out farce when we got to the main Disney castle thing and it was covered in Scafolding and draped with cloth with a big sign saying "See the new Castle in 2005!" There were other things closed or shut too - not good when you pay that much.

Gareth nearly had to have a few words with Mickey Mouse - but even he was too busy!! We waited in a queue for Mickey for 10 mins. We took a photo of Helen with Mickey, then his PA - YES!!!! PA! said "Come on Mickey, you've got an appointment in 10 mins!!"



When we went over the road to The Californian Adventure, that more than made up for it. It was excellent there. We had a great time and went on all the rides, which truly are world class! In the evening we went back to Disneyland and saw the parade which was great too. We stayed all day and left at 10pm! So it couldn't have been that bad! The day was finished off with fireworks over the scafolding and a random doughnut that was shaped like a 2 foot long stick. Very tasty though. hmm.
