Wednesday December 31 was our over 12 hour trip to DLand. What a blast we had!!! This is where the majority of our pics will come from. I have never been to DLand when it has been so crowded. The earliest we could get on Indiana Jones was around 9PM! The waits were usually about an hour. We got lucky on some rides and they would be only 20-30 min waits. I'm so glad that I got to be with Nic with his first experience to Dland. New Year's Eve night ended up being a night that we won't forget. It wasn't a typical New Year's Eve but it made for an unforgettable first New Year's Eve as a married couple... We spent all day and partial night at DLand - running back and forth between parks to go on rides - eating every now and then. Around 9:45 there was the first firework show that we decided to watch. By about 10:30 - 11 we were pooped and ready to go home to our own party. Main Street was out of control crazy party! So many people and music! Craziness in a box! We walked back to our car in the Pumba Parking Lot just pooped. There was condensation on the windows so we rolled down the windows to get it off - when rolling back up the passenger window, a cracking occurred and the window would not roll up. A few pieces of plastic started spitting out at me. We had no idea what was going on or what had happened to the window. We drove to a Shell gas station to see if anything by chance would be open. We drove around for about 20 min or so to find a 24hr Auto Zone a guy had told us about...LIE! All lies. We had no choice but to drive 2 hours back to Indio - 75 mph - 47 degress outside - window rolled down. What a night...out of all the nights/days that this could have happened, New Year's Eve was the night. Unforgettable...
