Unhappiest place on earth

So, it's that time of the year again. Time for our annual sojourn to Disneyland during the very most crowded weekend of the year because we are idiots my daughter has a regional dance competition there. Every year. Every fucking memorial day weekend. Every single birthday weekend of mine.

Bright side? My birthday is not until Tuesday this year, so I will not be at Disney or on the highway to or fro Disney on my birthday at all.

Dark side? We have to be there all goddamn weekend. She is dancing in 7 dances, so I'm not sure what I expected. But when the schedule came out I almost cried. Six of the dances are Friday evening - Sunday morning at 9 am. Not bad! The next one? The lone remaining dance? The worst choreographed of the dances she is in? The one that is almost embarrassing to watch? It's not until 5:15 PM on Monday.

Hmm, let's see....how much money is it going to cost me to entertain 3 kids at Disney from Sunday morning at 9 AM until Monday evening at 5 PM? An extra night in the hotel, and extra day at the park, many more meals at exorbitant prices. Oh, and getting on the freeway at 6 pm on the Monday night of Memorial day weekend in Southern California? That, my friends, will do doubt cost me my sanity.

So, here you go, Mickey, from me straight to you, with love.

Poor. You. That schedule sucks, Mickey sucks, Disneyland can suck it.

When can we celebrate your birthday???


Me, You, or Ellie said...

This is terrible! Walt Disney is a douche.

Shit, I wish I could help.

Why, Disney, why? *WHY*??

Good luck, love you.

that picture says it all! That's worse than the summer Olivia was on a swim team and when we saw the numbers on her arm, which were the events she was in, they read 4,18,96...long night at the pool!
Confirms my feelings about Disney parks.
