Disneyland was a Blast

We love taking a yearly trip to Disneyland in the Spring time. The weather is beautiful and usually the lines are not too bad. This year we had a new addition with us and even with Shelby we really enjoyed our two days at the Parks.

We used the SoCal Resident 2-Day 1-Park Per Day Ticket. Which are $99.00 dollars for SoCal residents, and for non residents it is $146.00 for kids ages 3-9 and $159.00 for 10 and up.

I loved that we were able to visit one park per day, but some people might find park hopper tickets better. Especially if you are done with DCA (Disney California Adventure) and want to head back over to Disneyland.

I definitely recommend using a park map and talk about what you guys want to do first. we have always found that going to each land/town and doing everything there before moving onto the next is best. Disneyland is so big and the lines can get long that to do everything you almost need two full days, especially with younger kids who need to go to bed by a certain time.

We are also so excited for the new releases coming next month!

The Happiest Place on Earth will get even happier June 15, 2012, with the grand opening of Cars Land, Buena Vista Street and the Carthay Circle Theatre at Disney California Adventure park. The exciting, new additions will complete the five-year expansion of Disneyland Resort, a premier, multi-day vacation destination in Southern California with two theme parks, three hotels and the Downtown Disney shopping and dining district.

With four new attractions opening at Disney California Adventure park, full day-to-night experiences at both parks, and the magical transformation of the Disneyland Hotel with new pools, themed suites and remodeled rooms, guests of all ages will enjoy more fun and adventure than ever before at the Disneyland Resort.

  2. It looks like you all had such a great time. I see Ariel’s Grotto pics (isn’t there food good too?!) and I’m happy we have family and friends who are So Cal residents so we can get that deal!

  3. Disneyland is the best family trip with little ones! We just went about a month ago and did the three day hopper pass through the AAA Disney package.

    My kids loved Buzz Lightyear, Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan and Pirates of the Caribbean. My favorite meal was at Cafe Orleans in New Orleans Square and my favorite show was Fantasmic!

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂
