Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?

So I failed to return later on the first… But I guess I’ll survive…

So on to the fun…

From December 21st to the 27th of last year (2012), I was in Anaheim for my annual Christmas trip to Disneyland. This was the fifth year in a row of spending Christmas at Disneyland. As you might expect it was a bit of a zoo and offered more than you might expect of chaos. Though different from previous years it really wasn’t that bad til the 27th. This was the second Christmas trip as an annual passholder at Disneyland. As a result I was able to be in the parks on the day I returned home. That is how I know how bad it was on the 27th.

After that and my last few rides on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad for the next 10 months I was able to meet up with a couple good friends. Jess (@ocswaynee) and Shaun (@disneyhipster) ended up being subjected to random shopping in DCA (@dcatoday) followed by helping my mother and I learn that the Italian at Earl of Sandwich (@earlofsandwich) is quite possibly the best meal as a go home meal.

So lets go to earlier in the trip…

Discoveries:
Fried Pickles at Carnation Cafe are a spectacular mid-day snack
Monte Cristo bites over at the Jingle Jangle Jamboree are great and need to find a permanent home somewhere in the parks
The venison on the winter menu at the Napa Rose was fantastic.
