So, what's Mitt Romney been up to?

What does a guy who just lost a presidential election do in the weeks after ending a long, hard-fought campaign?  In Mitt Romney's case, it seems he's trying to move on and enjoy his newfound downtime.

Today, Romney posted on his official Facebook page a photo of himself and his wife, Ann Romney, in which he looks more the part of a guy on vacation and less like the buttoned-up businessman/presidential candidate the public saw during the campaign.

The photo features Romney, hair tousled and t-shirt clad, hugging Ann Romney with the caption, "Hope everyone had a great Thanskgiving! Much to be thankful for this year."

On Tuesday, Romney and his brood were spotted  at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., by dozens of people who posted pictures and comments on Twitter.

"Mitt Romney rockin' a tire at Disneyland's California Adventure," @stansell wrote on Twitter.

"Romney is at Disneyland today, my sister saw him an I think she had a slight heart attack," tweeted Maddie Skala (@maddiemoo_24).

"Just sat right next to Mitt Romney and his family at Disneyland!" wrote Mike Esparza (@MikeyShowMikey).

Poking a little fun at the former candidate's visit to Disneyland, the Weekly World News, a tabloid that's a purveyor of fictional "news", cooked up a story headlined, "Mitt Romney Hired as President of Disneyland."
