“The happiest place on earth” might also be called “the most expensive place” or maybe it just seemed that way because it had been 14 years since our last visit!! And, yes, we still remember “E” ticket rides! We had a couple “Touron” (a cross between a tourist and a moron) moments when we got lost looking for the park entrance and then again when exiting. Remember when the Matterhorn towered over everything and you just headed towards it across the gigantic asphalt parking lot to the ticket booth? This mighty landmark in Disneyland is now eclipsed by beautiful resort hotels, newish parking structures and the California Adventure park. All that aside, we had a fabulous day playing like kids, riding as many rides as we could and enjoying the perfect sunny weather! Mickey says hi.
“To Boldly Go….
We braved the Los Angeles traffic to visit the Space Shuttle Endeavour at the California Science Center in Exposition Park next to USC. Very impressive!
The self-guided tour begins in a museum filled with shuttle system exhibits, displays and history.
Endeavour is housed in a separate hangar and shows signs of its millions of miles of space travel but is a grand spacecraft nonetheless! It is definitely worth seeing.
A couple notes on visiting….Viewing the Endeavour requires a timed ticket which can be purchased online or over the phone prior to your visit. On weekdays be prepared to share your visit with busloads of grammar school children but don’t worry, as Greg noted, the displays are easy to see right over their heads!
