We loved Disneyland! We got to do the Paint the Night Dinner at Blue Bayou. The service was great and the food was really good! We then got tickets for our reserved seating (more like standing!) and made our way down to Main Street to stand in line for our reserved seating. Once there, we were told by a cast member Carrie that we could not stand in line early and if we did then we will be told to get in the back of the line. (Yes, I know what you're thinking...she was NOT having a magical day! Lol). A lot of people did not appreciate her threat and tone and asked to see a manager. Drama!! My family and I had a wonderful time regardless. Thank you to Casey Starnes from DLR Prep School for providing us with great tips. We were able to have an amazing time in Disneyland! We couldn't have done it without her blog!
Growing up I've always wanted to go to Disneyland. The overall experience was - yes, magical! The park was clean, staff were helpful, rides were enchanting. We spent two days here and definitely needed it. The fireworks display and colour the night parade in the evening were beyond my imagination. If you can stay and watch the fireworks, do it. I would recommend this park to everyone and anyone, it's fun and I didn't think the gift and food stores were too overpriced (I thought it would be worse). Overall a wonderful and memorable experience and one day I hope to bring my kids back to enjoy the happiest place on earth.
Get fast passes early. They go quickly. Good food. Take a break midday. The fireworks are super. The electric light parade is great.
I didn't expect to like Disneyland as much as I did, but... It was actually amazing! The decor is beautiful and transports you to the magical world of Disney cartoons. Apart from the whimsical characters and all the strollers everywhere, there are the rides. We loved 'Hyperspace Mountain' and 'Matterhorn Bobsleds' and, of course, 'Splash Mountain'. Even though we went on a Saturday in June, the crowds were manageable and the FastPass made it easy for us to go on the best rides without wasting an hour in the queue. The parade is also worth seeing and the best spot is actually near the starting point, near the 'It's a small world' castle. It's also a great spot to see the fireworks.
