Here we are on the tram heading for a fun evening at DISNEYLAND!!!! Christy has never been to Disney anything and Nancy hasn't been to Disneyland so needless to say we were EXCITED! Singing "M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E"... just look at the joy on our faces as we head to the happiest place on earth!
Imagine us giddy girls finally arriving at the Disney gates already planning the rides we will go on, and our tickets won't work!!! A minor setback as we were told to go to Guest Services to have them take care of it.
Guest services closed 1/2 hour earlier. We approach other ticket window still smiling... friendly Disney man gives Christy a beautiful button celebrating her first visit and as we celebrate with high fives, the friendly Disney man proceeds to tell us that our tickets won't be honored, but we can pay $69 in order to get in!!!
I ask to speak to MICKEY his manager. Friendly Disney man is not so friendly and says Mickey is busy. We walk away with tears glistening in Christy's eyes :( Thank goodness they let her keep the button!! What a memory for her 1st visit to Disneyland.
The second half of this sordid story entails Katharina Doyle (Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine editor) and myself almost getting kicked out of Downtown Disney!!! I will have to share the full story later, but truth be told, not sure I should show my face there again any time soon!!!
