it had been well over a year since the hub's last visit to the happiest place on earth, so he'd never been on rise of the resistance before. we didn't even bother to try for boarding passes when we were at disney world this spring, so i made sure to wake up nice and early to hop onto the disneyland app just before 7am on the day of our disney date.
except that the damn thing glitched right as i was clicking through, so by the time i finally got to the right screen all of the passes had already been distributed. d-oh!
when we got to the parking structure, we inquired about parking in one of the spots with the electric vehicle charging. turns out that there are charging stations in several spots in both sides of the structure - and they're just as close as the preferred parking spots that are $40 vs. $25 for regular parking. sweet!
we'd arrived about an hour after the parks opened, so getting through security was a breeze.
there are still no trams running between the structure and the main gates, so we set off on foot to walk the 3/4 mile. it was the first time i'd parked in the structure since before covid, so this was new for me. and to be honest, it really wasn't all that bad.
as we got closer to the esplanade, we passed the "cruella" display (which i haven't seen yet, so i'm just assuming this is her car from the movie).
the line to get in wasn't too bad.
