In a few short weeks, my family and I will venture off to California for a visit with the Mouse. I have spent hours online Googling my face off. I've read so much of the Disney site that i'm now seeing mouse ears everywhere! I've even read the 2012 Unofficial Guide to Disneyland and I am still overwhelmed and unsure.
Sometimes, doing too much research can be bad thing...
My head swirls with all of the things we *might* want to do. Then things like NO FIREWORKS on the night I wanted to stay late throw a wrench into the plans. With kids 4 and 5 years old, we can't be silly and stay up late every night! Days after would be horrible for all of us and I kinda like it when my kids aren't grouchy-- call me selfish.
I'd like to hear what others have to say about their experiences at Disneyland. What are the must-see, must-do rides? What things should we take to the park with us to enjoy our day more??
So far, the only thing i've actually mustered up and bought in preparation are little autograph books for the kiddos. (Hardcovered, plain paper notebooks from the DollarStore.) That's it! I also know that we will be bringing a packed lunch with us every day and trying to avoid huge food costs.
Aside from that, I am a researched out Disneyland newbie! Help!
