Oh The Places I've Gone: Disneyland Trip!

Hey lovelies, I'm super excited to write about my trip to Disneyland because it was my first time ever visiting! The problem with growing up in Ontario is it was always cheaper for my family to fly to Florida versus California. But since I'm already in America the flight costs were cut exponentially making this trip possible. Not to mention my friends and I had been planning this trip since we first met each other back in January.

I'm also going to say that even though Disney World will always be my home, there is something extra magical about the original Disney park that I can't quite but my finger on. Maybe it's the quaint layout of the park or the tiny pink castle, but I think the part that really impressed me was knowing that this was the park that started it all and Walt had a hand in almost everything that is there.

My dream came true and I finally met Jack Skellington (!!!) I may or may not have gasped insanely loud when I first saw him from a distance and nearly gave my friend a heart attack.

Another dream of mine was to ride the Haunted Mansion when it had been taken over by the Nightmare Before Christmas. Oh Disney, you really do make dreams come true! haha

And now some good 'ole feet pictures. One while waiting to board The Matterhorn and one of all my friends standing in the exact center between Disneyland and California Adventure.

Don't let this photo fool you, I lovingly nicknamed this ride 'The Wheel of Death' because I decided riding in the moving compartment was a good idea. FALSE. It was way too scary!

This is the look Canadians make when we find a plaid shirt like the ones we wear at Epcot being sold in Carsland for $115. WHAT?! Not to mention 'Canadian plaid' as we call it was all over the place! I have an entire album on facebook dedicated to how many people were wearing it in Califorina. And that album has almost 20 pictures! Who knew we were so fashionable!?

We also lucked out by visiting in October because it meant we could see the differences in how Disneyland decorated for Halloween compared to Walt Disney World. The giant pumpkin Mickey was my favourite. He smiled on one side and winked on the other.

Other great things from this trip: eating Walt's favourite meal (meatloaf) at Carnation Cafe. So yummy, however the PB&J soda was gross! Curiosity got the better of me // seeing World of Color which is now my new favourite Disney spectacular // running into Disney characters on the street without having to wait in line // Radiator Racers! What a fantastic ride! // spending time with my merchie friends // being able to walk inside Sleeping Beauty's castle // watching the Mad T Party // Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy // running into Samuel Larson from Glee in California Adventure

And now I'll leave you with a quote that sums up this trip and my program thus far:

"I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse." - Walt Disney
