The Happiest Place On Earth?

Well if you ask my daughters about their first trip to Disneyland, they probably would agree. It IS a very happy place ... especially when you ...


* go for the first time with BOTH sets of grandparents

* get pins to wear that tell everyone it's your first time there

* ride space mountain at 7 years old and surprisingly LOVE it and want to do it again

* eat cotton candy, popcorn, and Mickey Mouse shaped pretzels as a main meal

* are so excited that you can't be bothered to take a nap all day long

* take multiple photos with all your favorite Disney princesses

* ride on all of mommy's favorite rides ... the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and It's a Small World

* manage to spend over 10 hours there and still have energy for a few more

* know that it didn't matter you couldn't see everything you wanted to because you'll be coming back again and again throughout the year now that you have an annual pass
















The end of a GREAT day

This is so special! Having you guys home and enjoying such a, for lack of a better term, American past time is so amazing!! This post made me tear up a little! I'm a NorCal girl but I have been to Disney Land so many times and STILL remember my first time!
CONGRATS!!!

What a day! We went last year for the first time (for the kids) and they just loved it...so much fun. We had to drag them out after 15 hours...with the promise to go back soon, of course!

Sounds like a fabulous day. Hope you have many more in sunny California.

Annual Pass?? Very jealous here! Glad you had such a wonderful day. I love Disney.

Fun fun fun! We took my Godkids last month for their first visit and they absolutely loved it. I'm sure they would be extremely jealous of your annual pass, I know I am!

We've been to Disneyland once. (We've been to Walt Disney World a few more times.) How was the G man? I don't think I'm ready for a trip to an amusement park with Owen, although we're discussing the possibility of Disneyland Paris this fall.

Oh Jill, your family just can't be any cuter. Looks like a perfect day, and how great that you'll be visiting all year!

Nothing like a fun day at Disney! It's so great to experience it through your kids.

Christy said...

Awesome - so glad you all had so much fun. And how freaking cool that you got season passes? Lucky kiddos! AND super cute kiddos - the one of them all passed out is priceless!

TulipGirl said...

How sweet! (And those are my fave rides, too!)

Emily said...

What a great day! Your family is adorable! I have to agree, I think cotton candy, popcorn and Mickey Mouse pretzels make the best kind of meal. Especially the cotton candy.
I love, love, love the picture of the kids asleep. I think that speaks perfectly that it was a great day.

Oh ABSOLUTELY. Annual passes are a must.

We had those one year when we lived outside of Orlando. Simply a MUST.

Love the adorable pictures! Oh, I'm *so* glad you guys are having so much fun together!

Kat said...

A season pass! How perfect! That is a great "welcome back to the states!" treat, huh? :)
Love the photos!

Sounds and looks fantastic! Hope to get there with my 3 boys some day.

A little, ah, different to India, no doubt. ;)

I grew up in Florida, near enough to go play in Orlando whenever we wanted.. the whole city is a theme park :D We've taken our children there once, and they had a blast! It was wonderful to watch them get pulled into the magic of the place. We're about due for another dose of fun. Maybe next summer's R&R?! :) Sounds like you guys had a beautiful time.
