Weekend Recap - Sunday

So basically, since I'm cool and a Disneyland nerd, I got special Family/Friend passes to Company D. Company D is the "Disney Store - Discount" for Disneyland Cast members. It is all the merchandise that doesn't sell in the park. It is all marked at 50% or more off. I was so excited to go because this is my "thing" and I've never been.
P.S. Check out that new top....pretty cute huh?
I love it!
I really have no serious reason to dislike Ashley Tisdale. I know her from high school and we never clicked. She tried out for numerous drama productions and I always was casted over her. I always fought her for my roles and I always won. But I'd lie if I did say that I was somewhat gleeful when I saw at least 3 boxes full of "Sharpay" dolls at the discount center marked for under 10 bucks. Haha! I'm wrong...I know.
Well, since we were just down the street from the parks, we decided to stop by. We don't go there just because we are nerds. We go there to pig out. It was hot and nothing is as refreshing as a Dole Pineapple float (4.50). It's a 16oz cup filled with fresh pineapple juice topped with pineapple frozen yogurt. Tasty goodness. We enjoyed our floats while cooling down in the Tiki Room which was actually crowded for once.
Then we decided to hit Haunted Mansion, another air conditioned ride, and I got a whiff of the Churros (3.00). Being Mexican, I am picky about them. And it sounds silly but I really think that Disneyland has some of the best churros out there. It must be a regional thing. A few years ago at Walt Disney World, we only saw 1 churro stand in the whole resort. All 5 parks, 2 water parks, and one mall and only 1 churro stand. And the Churro was horrible.

After we rode Haunted Mansion we decided to head home but I'll give you a little bit of Disney trivia. The Haunted Mansion is known for pranks because it is so dark. Several decades ago, two boys brought on a beebee gun and shot at the ballroom scene. Well, there is about 3 inches of glass in front of you which is also almost 3 stories tall. Instead of removing the whole glass, the designers just painted a spiderweb over the crack the beebee created. Interesting huh?

....well it is to me.

I don't even know who Ashley Tisdale is. I Googled, and I still don't know.
