Oh Disneyland, the mere mention of the place sends fits of joy fluttering through my heart and mind. Growing up in Southern California I've been lucky enough to live near this legend since it is only about 45 minutes away. I don't think I can ever tire of Disneyland or grow bored with it because no matter how old I get, it will always make me feel like a kid again.
I've only had great experiences at Disneyland. I think being an imaginative person I've grown to deeply appreciate it and Walt Disney's goals for the park. Now that I'm an adult I feel like I'm in a better position to enjoy the park because I don't have to beg my parents to buy me souvenirs, ha! This time around, however, I'm an annual pass holder and it's the best! There are different levels to the Disneyland annual passes. There's the ultimate, ultimate pass that lets you in everyday of the park, but costs more than $500 and then there's the one I have which is the Southern California Resident Annual pass. With this pass I can enjoy Disneyland on Sundays and Weekdays, but not on Saturdays, major holidays and the whole month of July, hahah. It's also great though because the block out days are the ones I'd want to avoid - that's when the park is the most crowded.
Here are a few highlights about the park that I love: My most ultimate favorite ride is Space Mountain, of course. I think it's the fastest ride at the park and the most fun. I'll also never tire of Pirate's of the Carribbean, The Haunted Mansion, The Matterhorn, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Small World. My favorite non-ride attractions are the Disney Gallery, the shops, going on the train when I'm too tired to walk, the park during the winter holidays, taking the monorail, and The Tiki Tiki Room because it reminds me of my parents.
If you ever want to remember what it's like to be a kid again, I recommend you go here. And if you're not a kid anymore, watch out for those strollers, they can get really annoying!
Here are some pics from some of my past and recent Disneyland trips. I'll put up more when we go next time!
