There are many perks to being a blogger…but going to Disneyland with a bunch of amazing Canadians is the best one I got to experience so far! Last week, le bf and I boarded a plane to LAX, wearing our matching Mickey and Minnie tees from Old Navy, not knowing what to expect, but feeling excited for our mini Disney Vacay. When we arrived at Disneyland Hotel, we knew we were going to have a blast!
The first thing on my agenda was buying the sequinned Minnie ears, which I basically wore for 5 days straight (and may or may not be wearing as I am writing this from my couch at home – DON’T JUDGE!). The second thing was…GO TO DISNEYLAND!
This was my very first time at any Disney park, and the little kid in me was going bananas! To start off our visit, we did a guided “Walk in Walt’s Disneyland Footsteps” tour, learning fun tidbits about the park and Walt’s life. We even got to visit his personal apartment and the super-exclusive Club 33! How cool is that?! After the tour and some delicious churros, we all ran off to explore on our own. That day, we hit up Splash Mountain, Haunted Mansion, Indiana Jones Adventure, Star Tours, and Matterhorn Bobsleds, making sure to stop for some refreshing Dole Whip in between. It was EPIC!
The thing that surprised me the most about Disneyland is how easy and fast it is to get on rides! Going in, I was expecting to spend hours waiting in lines, but with the awesome (and free) Fast Pass system, we were able to get on in no time. And if you don’t mind riding solo, there’s always the Single Rider option which is even faster than the Fast Pass lines! Easy, breezy.
Needless to say, after a long first day at the park, we were high on sugar and happiness, feeling like kids again, giddy and looking forward to more fun. And it was just the beginning!
