Memorial Day Weekend @ Disneyland

Tuesday, on an impressively beautiful day, 
I jumped in the car and drove down the 101 and 5 freeways towards the Happiest Place on Earth.

American flags covered the buildings and lampposts on Main Street and throughout both parks.
But first, I had to buy a Starbucks Mocha Light Frappuccino 
which is just that much more delightful thanks to the Disney cups.

One of the perks of going to a theme park alone is that you can stop and catch a show impromptu whenever you like. Take for instance these adorable Disney Newsboys in California Adventure.

And then there was the Disneyland Band playing on Main Street U.S.A. in Disneyland.

And of course, one must see a few of your favorite characters, yes?

My former boss circa 2007
Yes, that's TWO different Belles!
#1 is more of my ideal Belle; what about you?

One of the perks of being a Disney Visa cardholder is a Character Meet-N-Greet and free 5x7 photo.
Last but not least, I chanced upon a California Adventure Jazz Quartet that performed alongside Goofy. Love those vests, hats, shades, and ties!

So have you ever gone to a theme park solo? Single rider queues and the opportunity to chat with the friendly cast members while people watching can make for a very entertaining couple of hours.

Hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!!
