Hello, my bucket list friends ! I just got back from Disneyland one of my favorite places in the whole world ! I had a really great time and I have a lot to say so let’s get to it !!
Disneyland Dec. 2019
This Disneyland adventure started on Wednesday with a short plane ride then an Uber ride. When my parents and I got to the hotel I didn’t want to stay there long because I was super excited to go to Downtown Disney. Not long after arriving to the hotel we walked to Downtown Disney I was so excited to be back at the Disneyland resort! I took some pictures as we walked to the World of Disney store. I already had an idea of what I wanted to buy there .Some of the things I wanted were sold out but that didn’t stop me from finding some great items. Some of my favorites included a Peppermint scented Mickey Mouse pillow, a 2019 Disneyland shirt, and a pack of post cards. After shopping it was time to eat we went to Black Tap and had a wonderful dinner. After walking around a little bit we headed back to the hotel to get rested for the big day we had ahead of us. The next day we made it to Disneyland early enough to attend magic morning. Magic morning is when the park opens a little earlier for some people. We were able to go to magic morning because we had three day park hopper tickets. We quickly got going on the rides and we also got some great pictures by the Main Street Christmas tree. We were able to do a lot of the rides we wanted to do with the help of max pass. Max pass let’s you make fast pass reservations right from your phone it also lets you download and share ride photos as well as the photos that Disney Photographers take of you. We had lunch reservations at Cafe Orleans and the food was very good. I also went and did some shopping of course! My favorite thing I got that day was the classic mouse ear hat. I already had a pink mouse ear hat with my first name on it , now I have a black pair with my last name on it . I also got to cross off a bucket list item this day. I have wanted to take an official Disneyland tour for a while now and on this trip I got to! We took the holiday tour and it was so much fun! Along with the tour we got reserved seats for the Christmas parade, hot chocolate in souvenir mugs and special tour pins. Later that night I road splash mountain and got soaked! I ended up getting some Star Wars pants because my jeans were so heavy with water ! The next day we started off at California Adventure. We rode the more popular rides first some of which are my favorites! Then I got to ride the new carousel I really like the cute cartoon like animals on the new carousel. We had lunch reservations but as we were waiting for our table to be ready it started raining pretty heavily. We stayed under a big umbrella until it was time to eat. we had a wonderful meal at the Wine Country Trattoria ,then we went to buy some rain ponchos before heading over to Disneyland.When we got to Disneyland we went on the Disneyland railroad . We rode it all the way around the park then back to Tomorrow land where we went on the finding Nemo submarine voyage ride before going back to the hotel. The next day was our last day in the parks for this trip. I started my day off in California adventure while my parents went to Disneyland to do rides. I had a very important reason for starting my day off in California Adventure. During Christmas time the Disneyland resort makes fresh candy canes that are available to buy the same day but they are very popular so you have to line up early to get one. I got to the park before it opened but when I got in the gate there was already a line to get candy canes. When I got to the front on the line I was given a wrist band and told to return at 9:00 am to buy my candy cane. I had sometime before then so I got a fast pass for the Toy Story ride. Then I took a nice and relaxing walk over to Pixar pier. When the park officially opened I rode two rides before using my fast pass for the Toy Story ride. After that it was time to go get my candy cane. I went and bought my candy cane and two Disney pins, after that I went over to Disneyland where my parents were. I got popcorn in a very cute popcorn bucket and I rode two more rides before I met up with my parents. When my parents and I met up in Tomorrow Land we went on more rides followed by a stop the Tropical Hideaway for food and Dole whips. We had dinner reservations at Goofy’s Kitchen in the Disneyland hotel but we still had some time before then so we went to California Adventure for more fun. When it came time for dinner I was so excited it had been a very long time since I had been to Goffy’s Kitchen. Dinner at Goffy’s Kitchen was a lot of fun! We all really liked the food and had a fun time interacting with Goofy and his friends! To sum everything up this vacation was one on the best ones I’ve ever been on and I can’t wait until my next Disney adventure.
Rock on – Christina Epperly
