A long day at Disney Land started with early entry at 7am.  We got there right at 7 which was a challenge with three teenagers.  Early entry was good but still many people.  Most of the people went right to the new Finding Nemo sub ride which had a 2 hour wait at 7:15am (ouch).  So instead of that we did several other rides in Tomorrow Land that had little to no wait. 

The matterhorn, one of the older roller coasters, was fun and had a few interesting twists even though it was low adreline.

One more time in Space Mountain, twice in the Buzz Lightyear ride (yes, Devin got high score), and twice in the Star Tours ride.

Bu 8:40am it was time for our character Breakfast.  The kids and I enjoyed it even though we were all beyond todler years.  Good food in the all you can eat breakfast buffet also. 

After Breakfast we headed to the other side of the park to California Adventure.  The official opening is 10am, but even though at was 9:30am the gates were open.  Soarin' Over California was the only ride open and the line was very reasonable so we jumped at the chance to get an early ride in.  Everyone enjoyed it, though Ambe and I thought the you used to lay in the ride (it's a sit-in ride now).  When the rest of the part opened we went on the Grizzly River Ride (a circular raft ride with a fun spin at the end).  The California Screamer roller coaster was the next stop but it was not open so we went on the "Maliboomer" which shot you stright up in the air, and the peach swing ride.  By that time the screamer was getting ready to open so we stood in line for that, but I missed the ride getting some drinks.  After that we went on the ferris wheel - line seemed small but it went very slowly - the cars swung but the wheel only went around twice, defininitely not worth it. 

After several more rides (including about 7 tower of terror rides with the last few with some interesting picture poses) we called it a day and got back to the hotel by about midnight.
