There is a bus that goes right outside my apartment multiple times a day that says “Disneyland” on that sign area at the top (what do you call that? A bus marquee?). I used to pass this bus all the time on my way to work.
I’ve thought many times about how awesome it would be to just jump on that bus and go to Disneyland, but I never did…until this weekend (twice)! The day after the race (Saturday) I went to the park. (In case you didn’t read about the race, I got a twilight ticket with my 5k registration and you better bet that I was going to use it!)
I finally saw Captain EO for the first time!!! As soon as it was over I ran around and watched it again. I’m surprised I only watched it 3 times that day, ‘cause it’s pretty much the greatest thing I’ve ever seen. It’s a mix of two of my favorite things in the whole world – making Michael Jackson into a Luke Skywalker type was just brilliant!
The movie was adorable in all of its 80s glory – with shots that don’t have the sound matching the lips and so forth. I won’t say anything else about the awesome plot and incredible one liners ‘cause I don’t want to ruin it for anyone who hasn’t seen it. I’m just really happy they brought it back!
(Another random fact of the day: I kept my arms up on a roller coaster for the first time ever! When I was riding Splash Mountain, no one was sitting in front of me, so I wrapped my legs so tightly around the back of that seat that if I was gonna fly out of the boat, the seat was gonna fly out as well. So, my hands were free and I pushed them into the air!)
