Our family's first visit to Disneyland in Aneheim, California

During our summer vacation in August 2018. We went to different places in Northern California. But, since I had never been to Disneyland before, we decided to include it on our summer trip that would start in Capitola. From Capitola, it took us about 7 hours to get there, and there was heavy traffic in Los Angeles. We got to Anaheim at around 5pm and went straight to our hotel to check in and get some rest. 

After that, we went for a walk around the area to take pictures of the place, and we had dinner. The next day, we woke up at around 6am to get ready for Disneyland. It was a busy day and there were thousands of people at the park. We took pictures of some places inside Disneyland. Since my daughter was only 2 years old, we were not able to take her on a lot of different rides. It was also too hot to stay there all day. 

There were plenty of places to eat and buy drinks. The prices for the food were reasonable. The souvenirs were a little bit pricey but that’s okay because they were good quality souvenirs. 

Overall, it was a nice experience, but I think our travel time of 7 hours each direction was too much time on the road for the amount of time we got to experience in Disneyland. Still, I would recommend Disneyland as a family vacation destination.

  3. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip at Disneyland. I agree, though, that two is a little young -- I'm sure it was fun and exciting, but as you said, there's a limited option of things to do. Funny story -- my parents took me to Disneyland when I was three or four. I don't think they had as many restrictions back then because somehow they let me on Space Mountain! I was terrified and still remember the experience to this day, but not nearly as scared as my mom who thought I was going to slip out from under the safety bar the whole time.
