Happy Wednesday all!! Hope you're all having a great week so far. We're still on that post Rise of the Resistance high, but we did a lot more at Disneyland last weekend and thought we should share it with you.
This update includes some new experiences we got to try during our visit and a look at this years Lunar new Year at Disney California Adventure.

We always love being at Disneyland during sunrise, something magical about it.
Obviously our main goal for the day was to experience Rise of the Resistance, which we did!
Be sure to check out our tips for experiencing Rise of the Resistance that we posted the other day.
While waiting for our ride time, we got to experience some classic attractions, but not this one. It was pretty chilly.
We wrecked the halls with Jack one last time. Looking forward to OG Haunted Mansion being back soon.
We actually had an interesting experience on Pirates. As we were launching the CM's at the dock made the announcement that the ride was shutting down. We went through the ride, every boat behind us was empty. We didn't stop once, not even at the final lift.
When we got back to the entrance of the ride, it was completely empty. We have zero idea what was going on, but the ride was back open when we passed by later in the day.
We also spent some time in Batuu as our ride time for ROTR got closer.
We tried our first Breakfast Ronto Wrap. It was yummy.
We also tried this thing, it was, ok.
I got to hang out with Chewie!! We didn't see R2D2 unfortunately.
My OMG face before we even got into the "ride" part of Rise of the Resistance.
My review of Rise of the Resistance (no spoilers) in case you missed it the other day
After our experience on Rise of the Resistance, we needed to decompress at Lamplight.
And check out some Lunar New Year treats
Let's go try some food!!
Firecracker Three Cup Chicken Wings (my favorite thing we tried)
We had reservations to experience Oga's Cantina for the first time, so we headed back over to Disneyland and stopped at one of our all time favorite attractions. It's still great, even after all these years.
Back in Galaxy's Edge, Kylo Ren is looking for somebody.
I still can't get over how amazing it is to see the Millennium Falcon just sitting there.
Time for the Cantina!!
Took some video of our experience
This is such a cool touch
The Jet Juice
She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.
It was tingly for sure
Definitely unique, not sure we'd get it again. Not to be used for shooting Womprats.
As we had been up since the early morning hours (1:30am for me for some stupid reason), we decided to do one last attraction and head out. And we decided on It's a Small World.
Sunset over Matterhorn
We had to pick up a popcorn/fries bucket for a friend
And I had to do my best Flavor Flave impression
I will say, my one disappointment is the lack of Rise of the Resistance merchandise. I don't care for the regular shirt, at all (and it had a HUGE head hole).
I did like the Passholder design with the logo, but honestly, I don't want the Passholder there.
Need just a plain black shirt with the Rise of the Resistance logo on it. That's it.
Hopefully those are coming soon.
We said goodnight to Walt and Mickey and headed home.
It was a great night, and we're already making plans on heading back soon.
Now that we've used our Flex Pass 3 times I think we've got a pretty good handle on it, and we'll be doing a review of that particular pass soon. So stay tuned for that!!
