Disneyland Birthday Trip: Day 2

Guests at any of the 3 Disneyland hotels get the benefit of being able to enter 1 of the parks an hour early than any other guests, and it just so happened that Disneyland was the early park on our 1st park day.

Disneyland Outfit Planning

As our Disneyland trip approaches (5 days!!), I am starting to pull things out and set them aside for our trip. I never pack until the day before I travel (mostly because I don't trust myself, even tho I make lists, I am never fully sure if the item crossed of the list is really in that suitcase or not, so I end up unpacking the whole thing the night before and re-packing it again) but I do start pulling things out and setting them on the guest bed to get an idea of what I want to bring and sorting them into outfits for each day.

Taking a Kid to Disney World

When my family and I went to Disney World in November/December 2017, one member of our party was our 5-year-old niece! In this post, I'll talk about our experiences with her and some of my thoughts as far as tips and tricks on taking a kid to The Happiest Place on Earth. I do need to preface all of this by saying my hubby and I do not have children, nor do we intend to. But, we love our niece to pieces and loved getting to spend such a magical week with her and my family.

Favorite Attractions: Animal Kingdom

I will fully admit that Animal Kingdom is my least favorite park. It feels ridiculous even saying it because there are SO many things I love about Animal Kingdom. Regardless of all that, tho, I do have lots of favorites there and this post will share what I love to do during a day at Animal Kingdom.

Disneyland Birthday Trip

Turning 31 isn't exactly the most exciting thing, but we decided to make it more so by taking a trip to Disneyland! You may have read my post about planning a Disneyland trip last year, but that trip ended up falling through and we never got to go. Huge bummer because we were excited, but we'd already bought a 2-day Park Hopper ticket, so we knew we had to make it out there before the tickets expired. I won't go into ever last detail since you can read about a lot of it in that prior post, but a lot of our plans this time are different, so read along if you want to hear all about it. 🙂
