On September 9, 2013 I visited Disneyland.  Time constraints were such that I could only afford one day at the park, so I knew I had to make every moment count.  To this end, I arrived before the gates opened and didn't leave until they closed.  In that time I was able to ride most of the major attractions that were open, including Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye; my main reason for visiting the park.  It did not disappoint!  I also loved riding the Pirates of the Caribbean, my first time to do so since the films-inspired additions.

My only regrets were that Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, and Big Thunder Railroad were closed for seasonal maintenance and that I skipped the opportunity to eat Dole Whip, which I mistakingly assumed would be available at Disney's California Adventure park.

If I had a comment for the Disneyland poweres-that-be I would suggest they offer discount tickets when 3 or more major rides are purposely closed for upkeep.

All-in-all, of the 5 theme parks I visited in California during this trip, Disneyland was by far my favorite.
