I hope that you all had a safe 4th of July, at my house we don’t like to go on the highways or roads because it’s one of the most dangerous days of the year to be on the road. A lot more people drink and drive, so we stay at home go to our neighborhood parade than celebrate with a back yard barbecue and on July 5th we do Fantasmic and Fireworks at Disneyland.
We go down with another friend of ours to Disneyland around 4 pm and bring our blankets and cushions to hold our spot. This is key because the spaces go quickly!
Then we take turns going to get appetizers and hunker down with a couple of card games and finger food appetizers. There are so many different items that you can get finger food wise at a variety of locations like the Bengal Barbecue who offers skewers of beef, chicken, veggies and bacon-wrapped asparagus. The Stage door Café has chicken breast tenders, fish and chips, and chili cheese fries and last but not least the Tropical Imports which has fresh fruits raw vegetables with dip and Disneyland’s great pickles.
We play all sorts of games from the 3 letter word game to card games while we sit and wait for Fantasmic to start. We watch the entire show and stay right where we are at for the fireworks to start. Most people move over to Main Street but I have realized over the years what a great spot to sit and watch the Fireworks is over by the on the Rivers of America.
What did you do for the 4th of July?
