Day 5 Friday June 5
Today was our last day at the parks and we planned on being there from opening to closing if the kids could make it. We had followed Ridemax on Tueday and most of Wednesday and it had worked pretty good for us so we decided to follow the plan I had made for Friday and just skip anything we didn't want to do again.
We arrived at the park about 8:30 and the gates were open, we went to meet any of the characters that were out. We saw Cruella and met Alice and The Mad Hatter. Here is our ridemax plan on the left and any changes we did.

(twice)
After we left DCA we did not follow the ridemax plan as we had ended up doing some of the rides that were listed for tonight already today or we didn't feel like doing them, I will still list them so any one who wants to see an example of ridemax can still see it.
When we came back into Disneyland we walked through the castle so we could see how busy Fantasyland was and Peter Pan was opened (it was not scheduled to be open till Monday) of course we had to jump in line, which took about 30 min., you could still smell the fresh paint and everything was so bright. After this we were all hungry and we decided to eat at Village Haus since it was close by, I think this place is not to bad we have eaten there every trip since we spend alot of time in Fantasyland with little kids DS and DD1 both had burgers DD2 was not going to eat anything she said DH and I got the Turkey Club sandwich with chips to split and DD2 ended eating all of mine (this was only the second meal she actually ate this whole week the other being a ceaser salad from Pizza Port on Wed.) When dinner was done we all went on Dumbo, Alice, Teacups and King Arthurs Carousel befor we went to find a spot for the fireworks.

8:48 Scheduled Break for fireworks
We found a spot for the fireworks which unfortunatly was not the greatest in the end as there was a tree that blocked some of our view. While we were waiting for the fireworks myself and sis went to get snacks, DD2 wanted popcorn, DD1 wanted a churro (which were all sold out everywhere near the fireworks so she did not get one)DS and I got Dole whips which was my dinner since DD2 ate all of mine. After the fireworks my family stayed at the park (our kids still wanted to go on more rides and DD1 still wanted to get a churro-she had been asking all week but there was always another snack she wanted, ice-cream, cotton candy, popcorn, cookies.) DD2 said she wanted to go on Haunted Mansion so we headed that way and also found a churro cart for DD1. After that DD1 wanted to ride Matterhorn one more time (we rode both sides of this almost everyday), we then went on Teacups and Alice again for DD2, walked by Peter Pan but the line was about 45 min and it was already past 11:30. So we all said good-bye to the park and made our way back to the hotel, both of the girls fell asleep in our arms during the walk back.
