Disneyland

We’ve already been home for almost a week and I have not posted any photos!  In my defence, I was sick during the trip and have taken this week slow to recuperate (and do a ton of laundry). 

The weather was not as warm as I was expecting but Disneyland did not disappoint.  We all had a blast and I think we did just about every ride except the Tower or Terror and one really fast roller coaster that Naomi was too small for.  Kudos to both kids for being brave enough to do Space Mountain! We LOVED the fireworks and World of Color (a light show done with fountains).  Naomi was thrilled with the Bibbity-Bobbity Boutique and lunch at Ariel’s Grotto.  Francis loved the Autopia ride and fell in love with churros.

Overall I was quite impresses with Disneyland.  We are used to Disney World and I was a bit worried that there wouldn’t be enough to do for a week and that the lines would be so much longer because the parks are smaller.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  I think the longest we waited for a ride was 45 minutes – for Space Mountain.  Everything else was 5 – 20 minutes.  Also, I liked that we could walk to our hotel in about 10 – 15 minutes and didn’t have to wait for any busses.  Disneyland is much more lush and green than I remembered it to be (back in 1994).  We did 5 days of the parks and one day we rented a car and did a quick trip to Hollywood, Redondo beach and to some stores.  I’m sad it is over but we have some great memories!
