happyday

There's a great big beautiful tomorrow♪

We thought about posting our review of Say I Love You 8 yesterday, but then we got distracted by plans. Also, we weren't sure if anyone would be ready to read it, so we might not want to post it for a little while anyway. But the point is, we thought, since we had some free time and we were going to Disneyland anyway, it might not be such a bad idea to go early and A)see if we could get fast passes for World of Color and B)go to the movie theater in Downtown Disney and see Tomorrowland.

So we went to California Adventure, and it was ridiculously crowded, and they had already given out all of the fast passes for World of Color, for both shows. We weren't sure if we wanted to camp out for non-ticketed seats for the earlier show, but when we found out all the tickets for both shows were gone (by one o'clock), we decided we didn't need that kind of crowded madness in our lives. And off we went to the theater!

We decided to see Tomorrowland on the IMAX screen, partly because it worked better with our Wednesdays with Walt schedule, and partly because, as the song states, it's a great big beautiful tomorrow, and it seemed like it would be a shame to pass up the opportunity to see it as great big as possible.

After that, we went to Wednesdays with Walt, where we saw a behind-the-scenes look at the True Life Adventures series, which are so much more entertaining than the modern DisneyNature films. (Athena: I'm not saying they destroyed that chimpanzee's family for the sake of human entertainment...) ...Okay, that's not entirely fair, because we've still only seen the two, and both of those seem to have been done before Disney came along and said, "Hey, we want a piece of this!" So maybe they got better after Disney stepped in, but we may never find out... (Athena: I'm just saying it's awfully convenient.)

Today I'm thankful for getting to see Tomorrowland, happy Sherman Brothers songs, brownie sandwiches, it not taking too long to translate UQ Holder today, and getting to make an order from Amazon Japan.
