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.

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