We’re Going To Disneyland & I NEED Your Help!

Later this week I get to fulfil one of my bucket list items because We’re Going To Disneyland!

I am soooooo excited I can barely concentrate!

I have wanted to go for many years, but I have always missed the opportunity in the past but we are taking a trip with our family to celebrate the many birthday landmarks across the family this year!

My family could hardly believe it when they heard that I had never been to Disneyland before, and they are all very excited to be there when I get to experience it for the first time.

Most of you will know that I am a planner at heart, I love to know what I will be doing and when I will be doing it (and yes, this gets me into trouble all the time!). Disneyland however, stumps me! I don’t even know where to start! No don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to plan every moment we are at the park as I want to go with the flow and experience it as it happens when we are there – but I also don’t want to miss anything exceptional, and often if you go with the flow and don’t do just a little research
you can miss out on some of the best stuff!


I out two of my great friends to work recently and they compiled a list of the Top 10 Must See’s at Disneyland for me! They have been many, many times with their whole family and they love it!

I wanted to ask you too…….what are your recommendations?

What MUST I see and do before I leave the park?

What item must I take with me?

What top tip would you give me?

Where are the best places to eat?

What can wait until next time?

Here’s what I do know:

We have our flights and hotel booked! We are staying across the street from the parks.

We are there for 3 nights and 2 full days (a Thursday and Friday) in the parks.

We do intend to go to California Adventure too!

I like rollercoasters

I don’t like rides that spin round and round as they make me sick

I love water rides and don’t mind getting wet.

We love to eat great food

We love coffee.

We will need to rest a little as we are old 😉

The weather is due to be in the mid to high 80’s during the day and mid 50’s at night.

I want to meet a Disney Princess and have my picture taken with at least one!

I want to watch the Parade and fireworks at night 

I don’t want to spend much money!

    Do not buy water at the parks! It’s expensive and you can get it for free if you ask for a cup of water at any quick service restaurant. Also, bring a water bottle that you can buy at Target or Walmart and carry it with you so you can fill it up and carry it with you on rides.

    Fast passes! There is a reason they call it “DisneyLine” Hit the popular rides early and first. If you stay the the Disney hotels you get in an hour early.
