I took the leap and did not sleep for 24 hours.
As those who work at the parks very well know, yesterday was February 29th
which is also known as Leap day. Because of this extra day, Disneyland was open
from 6 AM on the 29th till 6 AM on the 1st.
I got up at 4 AM and made it to the park at 6 AM. I went on Haunted Mansion and
Pirates before 7 in the morning.
For lunch I ended up getting popcorn because I wasn't that hungry and I had to
go to work soon. The popcorn is $3.75 for the regular box:
And it was very good. My
friend loves the Disneyland popcorn and one time asked me to bring her some
when we met up in Downtown Disney.
It is buttery and slightly salty, and it is always overflowing. It is also
gluten and soy free.
While I was eating it I was
circling the Mad Hatter teacups, and the Hub, and I even made my way up to by
the firehouse. I was on a hunt to find Alice and the Hatter. I did see the Dapper
Dan's perform by the Fire House, but I wanted Alice and the Hatter. I saw Alice
walk by while I was backstage after class so I knew she was there today.
You see, it was leap day, which signifies that this year we have 365
unbirthdays. A very merry unbirthday to you! I was also wearing a flaring
skirt, white tights, and black Mary Jane flats so I wanted a picture with her-
a pseudo Alice Disney Bound outfit. It would just make my day.
I had finished my wonderful popcorn, which did its job and filled me up for the
time being until my lunch break at work, and right as I was about to leave to
go change into my costume I saw Alice and the Hatter right by Sleeping Beauty's
castle on the Tomorrowland side.
I quickly went over there and while waiting in line, and other guests were
taking pictures with Alice I had a lovely conversation with the Hatter and then
I got my picture:
In other words, the popcorn
available at outdoor vending carts is very good and great snack to hold you
over till your next meal. And if you can, try to sneak a peek at all the carts
in the different areas because they have a little figure turning a popcorn
wheel on the cart and each figure is different in each land. I quite enjoy the
one on the popcorn cart by Haunted Mansion.
