Mum was very excited today – we hit Disneyland. Our first ride was the cup and saucers, the ride Mum had seen on TV as a child. Even though it was winter and only a quarter of the carpark was open, it was busy. We have never seen so many adults in Disney merchandise – it is amazing the variety of Mickey Mouse ears that are available.
Part way through the day, we decided to take a break from queuing and head to Hollywood Boulevard to see the ‘Walk of Fame’, the Chinese theatre, Dolby theatre and Hollywood sign. None of us realised just how many stars there were. It ran for more than 7 blocks on both sides of the street and down some side streets. The Chinese theatre is where the stars leave their hand and footprints. Mum thought this was very cool. We looked in the door of the Dolby theatre, where they hold the Academy Awards. It looked just like it does on TV, without the red carpet, reporters and rich people.
