2014 Minnie's Moonlit Madness - An After Hours Scavenger Hunt around Disneyland

Oh yes! It's back!
On January 6th the call went out.
Calling all Disney Sleuths: Minnie's Moonlit Madness returns to the Disneyland Park on Thursday, Feb 27. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to gather three of your most trusted allies. You will have 2 hours to tackle Disney trivia and chase clues across Disneyland Park... tied to each other! 
We're in! We've participated in 2010, 2011, and in 2013 we had our very best finish. 3rd place out of 350 teams! We're hoping to improve on that this year!

Registration opened on January 17th and Ruston was right on top of it. He was one of the first few teams to sign up, and good thing too! The event sold out in only 7 hours!

Totem at the Santa Monica Pier

We're always up for a good Cirque show. We heard Totem was coming to town and grabbed four tickets.
 
Costco has Cirque du Soleil $100 gift cards for $80. Only problem was the fine print; they don't let you pick your exact seat, only your section. T and I were able to figure out a way though to hold seats we didn't want in queue, and then the seats we really wanted were the only ones left for them to assign in that section to us. We ended up getting seats on the aisle just off center, 4 rows from the stage. Sweet!

Rich said he didn't think he had ever see a circus, and Chi's last circus was in Korea. Theresa and I thought they'd have a great time, so we asked them to join us.

Our first day exploring Paris - Italy and France trip Day 13 - 07/03/2013

Sadly yesterday was our last day at Disneyland, but today we're heading into the city.
Checkout was at 11am, but the maid wanted us out at 10:50. We kept telling her 10 minutes, and she countered with 5 minutes. Whatever. We left at 11am.

Hauling all our gear, we headed to the train station right across the street.  The lines were pretty long for tickets, but the helpful guy with an “Information” vest directed us to more machines we weren’t seeing.

Well, we tried...

It's not a happy Denver Broncos household right now.
Ian was especially devastated. Even wearing his lucky jersey wasn't enough to help the Broncos today.
