Arriving at our hotel, the Marriott Residence Inn Anaheim Maingate. The hotel was about a ten-minute walk from the park entrance. We enjoyed having a suite with a kitchen, and breakfast was included each morning
First stop: Dumbo! Vivian loved the "magic feather" they give you when it's your turn
Vivian tried to give the magic feather to Dumbo so he could fly

Fireworks over Sleeping Beauty's Castle
Dots on Main Street USA at night
Back at Disneyland early the next morning when we had early admission
First stop: the crazy busy Star Tours which just reopened mid-June. We loved this ride! (Some of us, anyway - you can see what Vivian thought of Star Tours. She balked at the last minute and wouldn't get on so Robert and I traded off waiting with her - Dots got to go twice in a row)
Back on Dumbo!
Vivian on Dumbo again - this was the morning she was so out of sorts
Robert and his girls on the Casey Jr Train
Robert and Vivian on the Casey Jr Train. Vivian kept repeating, "Just like on Dumbo"

It's a Small World
Vivian and me on It's a Small World
Vivian on the Disneyland Railroad. Who'd have guessed things were about to get ugly?!
Vivian threw herself out of her stroller and tried to get off the moving train. Nice!
The girls and me after we got Vivian settled down. She had a seizure not 20 minutes later, which was likely the cause of her earlier distress. She had another seizure an hour or so later after she and I got back to the hotel

The nighttime ElecTRONica show at Disney California Adventure. Will and Dots LOVED this
