our trip to disneyland last week was an awesome one. the weather was fantastic, it wasn't too crowded, and my mom and i got on all of our favorite rides. we were able to utilize the so cal resident special they have going on right now - 2 days for the price of one! we upgraded to park hopper tickets for an addition $15, just seemed like the right thing to do.
my mom and i are strategic disney goers. we get fastpasses for our favorite rides and make sure we plan the day out to so we get the most in. i even downloaded an app that tells us wait times and fastpass return times. disneyland in the morning, pop over to california adventure for a few of our favorite rides, then back for round 2 and the parade. can't forget some delicious soup bowls in new orleans square, perfectly fitting considering we were there the day after fat tuesday.
i can't wait until we go back to use our 2nd day pass. we are definitely so lucky that we live so close to the happiest place on earth. every time i go to disneyland i feel like a little kid again. i get excited about the parade and the fireworks and even wait in line to get my picture with mickey. there's really no place like disneyland.
