LA LA LA…Hollywood and Disneyland

I recently had a conference to attend in LA so we took the opportunity to drive down to LA and visit Hollywood and Disneyland. It wasn’t all smooth sailing. The drive down was great, we stopped at Hearst Castle and did a tour which we recommend, however when we got to the Westin in LA there was a mix up with the rooms and we ended up in someone’s room who you might know. But don’t worry Abbey picked up the phone and sorted it out.

We checked into the wrong room and Barak was in there.

We all had a big day planned the family was off to visit Hollywood and Wax museum, so a big breakfast was in order, it was quite civilized and we met some wonderful new friends.

Of course James has a new Talk Show here now  ( I’m sure youve seen it) and its becoming quite polular, called “Jamin’ with James” we were quite surprised that they unveiled a start for him on the Hollywood walk of fame. Too soon?

Its sometimes hard to get a taxi in Hollywood especially since it was raining, so Abbey James and Nic each jumped on a bike and headed back to the hotel, because we were off to Disneyland the next day.

We decided to Stay at Disney at the Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel and that was a wonderful choice, we walked out the door in the morning in straight into Disney California Adventure Park. We went on so many Rides and did so many things in one day it was truly AMAZING. Our legs hurt from walking and faces hurt from smiling.

We went on the Cars ride and it was unanimously the best of the day, but we also did drawing classes with the animators and all manner of super cool stuff. When it came time to leave we were bummed and wanted to stay, so we had breakfast downstairs and even that was fun so the trip ended up on a real high note. If your coming to visit, plan some time to stay here.

There was also a fisherman and I think goofy was there also.
