Personal Narrative: My Third Trip To California

Superior Essays
My 3rd trip to California was probably the best time of my life. My family and I went last year during spring break. We took a 16 hour drive to our hotel, which had a bunk bed where I got to sleep top bunk. That night we got the best Domino’s pizza I ever had. After we ate that we went to bed. Now, we spent 3 days at Disneyland, but i’m only going to talk about my favorite day. That day was the last day at Disney. We left our hotel early that morning where we took a 15 minute walk to Disneyland. When we got through security instead of going into the Disneyland line, we went to the California Adventure park line.
When we got in my mom said,”I’ll go get fast passes for one of the cars land rides.”
“Ok, I’ll take the kids to California

We're in line, but the wait time is so short if you aren't here soon you’ll have to wait for us to get off.”
“Ok, that’s fine. Just go ahead and ride it. I’ll join you on the next ride through.” My mom texted back. So we continued on in line. The line was so short that it only came to a halt for a couple of minutes at a time, then it would go right back to a slow walking speed. When we got to the front of the line the worker at the attraction told us to go to cart seat 1 and 2. So this meant that my brother and sister got to sit in the very front of the roller coaster car, and my dad and I were right behind them. When we got in, it seemed like no time had passed from when we got in the line, to when we were seated in the ride getting ready for a moment that I would never forget. We waited for about 30 seconds for the workers to make sure everybody was strapped in safely. When the carts then started down this tiny slope to a straight away over the water. I was a mix of scared and excited for the ride. Before the coaster started a voice came from the speakers in the seats.
“Second thoughts, well too late,” it said “Get ready to go in ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two,

We then took a turn and took a drop to gain momentum for the last part of the ride that makes people scream. We took a drop that then lead straight into a giant loop. As we heard the screams of people we then finished the loop and went into a row of bunny hills. After those made our stomachs drop we took the final drop turn mixture, and struck a pose for the camera. The carts then went back to the loading station where we got off and met are mom.
We then spent the rest of the day riding California Screamin about 6 more times. We also bought sour dough bread that was shaped like Mater from cars, when we were in Cars Land. We spent our last day just riding the rides and having a good time. And that was my favorite day in

    She came up and gave my dad a hug then gave everybody else a hug. I was happy to get out of that airport it was way too packed for me. We walked to her car and then I found out she rented a van for the week so we could all travel around together and not take two separate vehicles. We got in her van and my dad asked if anybody was hungry and everybody said yes because none of us have ate since lunch time.

    The drivers in Italy are nuts, the bus driver parked the bus and we started on our first little walking tour just in the heart of Rome. We saw our first big monument the Pantheon in Piazza Novaro. Then we were off on our own for a while and had to be back by five o’clock to go back to the hotel and eat. While I wandered I had four friends I traveled with because you’re not supposed to be alone when you’re a young American. Jade, Sara, Blaike, Tommy and I decided we were going to sit on a stoop and eat our first cup of gelato and just enjoy the view because we were so exhausted from traveling for about twenty-four hours straight.…

It took us so long to get there and it was so hot outside but when we got there I was so sad and emotional because I really didn’t want to leave i was so happy and I loved it in Arizona with my friends, but I didn’t want to ruin this happy moment so i just enjoyed my last times with my friends. We played games, talked and even though it was really hot outside I had so much fun and I was so happy. When it was about 6:15 Rachel’s parents picked us up and took us home.…

    I was really frustrated that we had to wait for the rain to quit, but the park did not open for another couple hours. We sat around and had mini donuts and milk for breakfast [I also had pizza] and got ready for the day at the park. By the radar it looked like it would stop by the time the park opened, so it wasn’t too bad. We took the trolley there this time so we wouldn’t have to take the truck and probably park way out in the parking lot. The trolley took us right to the front gates, picked up people that wanted to go back to lake Rudolf, and left.…

    After two hours of being there we left and hit up a 24 hour Dairy Queen got a few ice cream cones then headed back to the house after a long day Within that month in a half of being in Alabama and hanging out with the family has been interesting. My mom, sister and I had seen and experienced quite a few things. One day when we were at the park, I had spotted out two guys wearing a Cookie Monster and a minion’s costume suit. I can never go to a public place with one of my cousins because he acts a little goofy laughing and pointing at people trying to get attention. Sunday evening I went to a Bowling Alley with a few people but, I never did play a game of bowling.…
