As you may already know from some of my previous posts, a few weeks ago I got back from a dreamy girls holiday to Disneyland. We had 5 super busy days of roller-coasters, character meet and greets, and some amazing food. I took thousands of photos (literally – i came back with 2198), and today I’ll be sharing my favourites in a photo diary type post.
Of course, our arrival at Disneyland began with all the typical photos in front of the castle. We had amazing weather for the whole of our holiday, which meant all of the pictures are so pretty. After the initial photoshoot, we headed for It’s A Small World, one of the classic disney favourites.
Following the excitement of our first ride, we went on Space Mountain (one of the bigger roller-coasters in the park), and grabbed a fast pass to skip the queue for Buzz Lightyear’s Laser Blast, a really fun shooting ride.
Next, we headed over to Fantasyland, and much to our surprise, the queue to meet Mickey Mouse was only 5 minutes, so we just had to do it!
Then we spent the rest of the day going on as many rides as possible around the Disneyland Park.
We had dinner at a buffet inside the park, and I somehow managed to eat 7 puddings – oops! As the sun began to set, we headed to the beautiful Newport Bay Club hotel, which was only a 15 minute walk from the park.
The next day, we woke up and headed straight back to the main Disneyland Park to meet a couple of characters, including Goofy, and then went to the Hollywood Studios park to try out some of the rides there.
We watched a really cool stunt show, which was based on the Cars movie, and then headed back to the hotel to make use of the swimming pool. In the evening, we had an amazing dinner at the Rainforest Cafe. We then headed back to the Disneyland Park, and went on a few rides, while we waited for it to get dark so we could watch the Disney Magic fireworks display. It turned out to be so good that we stayed up again to watch it on our final night! It’s an amazing show, with parts of classic Disney films projected onto the castle, music, water displays, and of course some incredible fireworks!
I don’t have many pictures of the third day, mostly because we spent the entire day going on as many rides as possible! On the fourth day, we got up super early and made it our mission to meet as many characters as we could. Here are some of my favourite snaps.
As you can see, meeting Winnie the Pooh was a definite highlight for me! In the afternoon, we found a good spot on Main Street, and sat down to watch the Disney Parade, which was so good and made me feel like an excitable child again.
Disneyland were running a special ‘Frozen Summer Fun’ promotion while we were there, so there was also a special little Elsa and Anna parade later in the day.
As the sun began to set, we took even more pictures in front of the castle, and then found a good spot to wait for the fireworks to start.
I don’t have many pictures of our last day, as it was much shorter and I had pretty much photographed every inch of the park by then! However, I did get some very cute ones on this little boat ride, which also happened to be our final ride of the trip.
And sadly, that’s the end of our adventure. I hope you enjoyed this little insight into my trip! It was honestly one of the best weeks of my life, and I can’t wait until I get a chance to go back!
Until next time,
