Disneyland. The Happiest Place on Earth. The fantasy of every young child.
I'll never forget Brooklyn coming home from Little Maroon's preschool as a 3 year-old with a blue construction paper balloon that had Disneyland neatly printed on the front. Given the option of traveling anywhere in the world, she wanted to go to Disney. How did she even know it existed? Jason and I certainly hadn't talked it up. And yet the dream was already planted.
And they were.
I'll let the photos do most of the talking. Hold onto your hats--it's quite a journey. :)
Hurricanes don't hit Las Vegas very often, except at the Children's Museum. We played at the museum for a few hours on our way to California--way fun!
Waiting in line to get in the gates. Good thing we were early--they actually had to start turning people away!
Trekking down Main Street:
Can you feel the excitement?
Stopping to post some letters.
And out of the many...
In case you missed that...
First stop, Splash Mountain! We liked it so much that we rode it again...and again... and again!
The Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Waiting in Line
Hey, this puppy tail may be cute, but now I'm stuck!
Anybody remember where we parked the stroller?
On to Tomorrow Land:
Space Mountain was Talia's absolute favorite ride.
A Christmas Fantasy Parade
When we planned our Disney vacation over the Christmas holiday, I expected it to be crowded. What I did not expect, however, was for Disneyland to be so gorgeously decorated for the season. It was a marvelous way to keep the Christmas spirit a bit longer.
As much as I'd love to post the rest immediately, I need some sleep (as likely do the rest of you.) Here's wishing you all a Mickey Goodnight!
