vivacity

the experienced Disneyland visitor

As of this past weekend, Miss L has spent 12 days at the Disneyland Resort in the past 6 months. That’s just what happens when you sign up for 2 runDisney events at Disneyland, it happens to be D23 Expo year, and you’re lucky enough to get a paper accepted at a conference at the Disneyland Hotel. Is she Disney Parks spoiled? Perhaps… but it’s so much fun we haven’t stopped to notice!

Miss L got to experience two new rides: the Mark Twain Steamboat and the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes. Because, it’s totally normal having 85 degree days in the middle of winter (hint: it’s not even normal for Southern California!)

And of course, there were old favorites like the Silly Symphony Swings, the Astro Orbitor & Radiator Springs Racers.

She was lucky enough to be chosen to attend Jedi Training Academy… and fought Darth Maul with her training light saber! (Watch out Lincoln… you might be the next light saber victim at home!)

And she got to play “tour guide” to her little Disney pal N, who was riding “Winnie the Pooh” for his first time too! (“Do you hear the bees? And do you see all that honey?!?”)

Then there were the treats!

Sure you can keep lots of snacks in your bag for all day, but nothing beats a daily sugary snack!

And what about those characters?

For a twist on our final day at the park, I gave her 7 old pins and a lanyard to let her “pin trade” with cast members. She did pretty well actually trading away her pins for new ones, and ended up with 6 Hidden Mickey pins!

Ah yes… another successful trip to Disneyland is in the books…

… and for the first time in 6 months we don’t have an answer to “when are we going to Disneyland again?” for Miss L. I think she racked up enough memories of the Happiest Place on Earth to keep her content for awhile!

    I grew up a Disney Parks spoiled kid, and I am still spoiled as an adult. It’s kind of inevitable if you’re a Disney lover in LA. We went twice a year when I was a kid, and I remember so many happy memories there. I knew it was special even then, and that’s why I shell out a small fortune every year to keep the magic in my life. :)

    […] basket! Miss L has been obsessed with all things Star Wars for a bit now. Perhaps it was her first Jedi Training Academy at Disneyland last January that started it all, but this past year she’s been all about the […]
