Disneyland’s Diamond Celebration, Day 3; part 2- Paint the Night & Disneyland Forever

After our afternoon drink at Trader Sam’s, we headed back into Disney California Adventure and headed straight to Radiator Springs Racers to redeem our Fast Passes. I have to say, Cars Land is one of the most over the top, in terms of theming, areas of any Disney theme park!1 2 3

We even saw Lighting McQueen cruising down Route 66!4Radiator Springs Racers is adorable! Very much like a toned down, kid friendly Test Track:

After our spin with the racers, we raced out of the park and in to Disneyland park for or evening event. But not without taking a closer look at the blinged out Carthay Circle…

Minutes after the parade ended, we all gathered in the street, on Main Street, USA for Disneyland Forever:

Just a magical night, no other words to describe it. Totally bittersweet because I miss my family and the entire premise is to enjoy Disneyland, this park in particular, as a family. I cannot wait until I can bring them all back and experience this with me.
