I will not bother breaking the last few days down. Lets just say we had fun running around being big kids in Disneyland for a couple of days and one day at Universal Studios.
We even had a view of Disneyland from our hotel room which was nice and of course the hotel was nice too. Being the last few nights we though that was a given.
We had the two day hopper pass for Disneyland which allowed up to move between the two parks which have separate entries. The queues were long, the longest being about 75 minutes but they did somehow seem to move fairly fast with the average wait about 25 minutes.
On the second day we took a break from Disneyland and headed out to Universal Studios for the day. Now that was great fun as well but the most memorable part was during one of the rides the whole carriage shock and the guide commented
‘Its ok folks its just an earthquake. We get them all the time here its nothing to be concerned about.’
We laughed. After all we’d been hit with fake fires, people falling from balconies and being shot, flash floods now an earthquake. What fun!
It wasn’t until later in the day that one of the attendants asked me if the ‘world moved for me earlier’. I had a very intelligent answer consisting of ‘What….’. He then explained ‘You know the earthquake we had this morning it was a big one did you feel it?’
My response after a moment of stunned silence “Oh my god, you mean that was real?!”
I immediately told Lou and she had the same reaction. It certainly caused us some laughter every time we thought of it. We found out later in the day that our hotel had been evacuated and so had Disneyland and there we we’re thinking a 5.4 earthquake was a part of the ride.
On our last day we ran around in Disneyland and went back to some of our favourite rides before heading back to the hotel to clean up and make our way back to the airport to catch our flight home. Sigh. The holiday is over. I guess I now have to start planing the next one…
