Disneyland is one of our happy places. It isn’t called “the happiest place on earth” for no reason. We love escaping for a few days to relax and have some fun being kids again. When a mistake fare popped up from YVR to LAX for only $65 roundtrip per person, it was way too good of a deal to pass up. Add in using our credit card points for free hotel nights, we snatched it up right away and then the temptation set in…
To Disney, or not to Disney? We just couldn’t resist. And, are we ever glad we chose to go.
It was a lot more work with two small ones, but seeing their reactions and excitement made some amazing memories. Plus, they were so stimulated that we had a good couple hours each day to go on the few rides that they couldn’t go on, while they napped in the stroller. Naps are something Madison has pretty much given up now, so it was nice to be treated to some “peace and quiet” as we took turns riding on some of our favourites, like Indiana Jones and Splash Mountain.
Sadie was a couple months younger than Madison was for her first Disney trip, but she still did so well with all the characters, though she wasn’t trying to make-out with them like Madison had. Madison could barely control her excitement when we pulled out a Belle dress for her to wear. Cinderella taught Madison how to curtsy after she spins and Madison could barely wait to meet her to most favourite, Belle and Ariel.
Take a look at some of the fun moments and memories we were able to capture:
We absolutely love Disney and it is so much fun now that we have some kids to bring along for all the fun. Disneyland is still fun without kids, but seeing it all through their eyes adds even more magic to the Disney journey. We can’t wait to go back when the kids are even older and we get to experience Disney again, from yet another viewpoint of our children.
Do you love Disney? What is the youngest age you’ll take your kids?
