VIP for a day
How many people can say that they enjoy their job and look forward to going into work almost every day? Count me among the fortunate. This is why I attempt to do a team building trip every year with the amazing people that I work with. This year, I decided to finally do something I have always wanted to do: a Disneyland VIP Tour. To start the day off, we took the train up to Anaheim; let's face it. Driving on the 5 is the quickest way to ruin your day. A limo from White Rose whisked us off to the Park.
It's always a happy site when there's a train at the Main Street Train Station. Hard to believe the trains will be down for almost a year.
The Castle in all of its 60th Anniversary finery.
With the revamped Peter Pan temporarily closed, we decided to visit Harold, the Matterhorn's Abominable Snowman. Janet had downed a few dramamine on the train and she was ready to experience her first roller coaster in years; Anastasia was very excited about this and raised her arms in support.
The weather was perfect; couldn't have dreamed up a better day for it.
The anticipation builds as you climb the Matterhorn and see the new projection effects.
Whipping around the wreckage a sense of doom increases.
And there he is, roaring and reaching out to terrified guests. I'll bet Harold is a total teddy bear at heart.
Matt had to photobomb an unsuspecting Rob.
We all posed at the Matterhorn photo opp stand.
Much better rotated!
Maria, our tour guide, was friendly and attentive. She did an amazing job!
Last one for today leaves us at the dock of the Finding Nemo attraction.
