Rainy Day in Disneyland

The storm that rolled in last night didn't stop! The thunder and lightning subsided around midnight, but the rain came down throughout Saturday.

 Luckily, I brought my poncho with me. I brought it in case I was going to go on a water ride. I am so glad I thought of that!

 Those clouds weren't just teasing, they meant business.

 I stayed dry in this poncho.

 The entrance to Disneyland is so amazing with all of the pumpkins.

First stop was at the Market House for a hot pumpkin spice latte.
 This was good for warming me up on the inside. I was feeling a bit cold.

 They had their traditional Halloween cookies. Bat Mickey and an orange shortbread.

 I wanted to go to Star Wars Launch Bay. I knew it would be warm and dry in there.

 I got to meet Chewbacca, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett.

 One thing that was a must do this weekend was to get a Pineapple Whip from the Tiki Room stand.

 I went on Storybookland. I like how relaxing this ride is, and the miniature houses and plants are so cute!

 This is a miniature compared to how big blue whales actually get!

 They could rename this place Storybrooke as a nod to  Once Upon a Time.

 The Casey Junior Circus Train is passing in the back.

 That is a statue of Peter Pan.

 This is Jasmine's palace.

 It is Arrendelle, where everything is frozen!

 After my journey around Storybookland, I went across to California Adventure.

 It's the Headless Horseman!

 There was a celebration of Coco. I was photobombed by a very handsome human.

 There were tables set up in the plaza area where people were invited to color these alebrije masks.

 This is a very popular attraction. Many fans on social media are asking Disney to please make it permanent. People love Coco!

I walked around a bit more and then went on the Guardians of the Galaxy ride, which has a special Halloween overlay. While waiting in line, I saw the walls up around the future Marvel Land. I was amused that it was Stark Industries!

This was a short trip but so much fun and full of magic. One fantastic surprise was when I was waiting for the fireworks show, and they announced they were going to show the special Halloween presentation. I was a bit bummed at first because I love the one that was originally scheduled. But this Halloween one was amazing and I am glad I got to see it!
