We just returned from our Disneyland vacation! We had such an incredible time! We were amazed at how great Sofia did and even Olivia seemed to enjoy it all.
For anyone with small kids, I HIGHLY recommend the Disney Grand Californian...It's basically on the Disneyland property so once we arrived, we never needed a car or monorail or any type of transportation...We just walked out the hotel and into Downtown Disney!
Plus we just loved all the little "extras"...like the Minnie Mouse balloons every night, the autographed pictures of Minnie Mouse, Personalized room keys for the girls and Disney chocolates left on the bed at night were just a few of the things that impressed us! I also loved how they open up the park 1 hour early on certain days for people staying at their hotels! We basically got all of the popular rides done before the park was even open to the general public and it made the rest of the day soo relaxing!
They also have a great pool with some fun slides for the kids!
The first morning we did the Minnie and friends breakfast and I can't rave enough about it! Sofia and Olivia were in their glory...they were awe struck at all the characters...When Minnie came to meet Sofia, it was like the heavens opened up and god came down...she was speechless...Her first love was Elmo and now it's Minnie...ha ha...
Olivia who we would have thought wouldn't have liked the characters, was in love...especially with Eeyore...That morning was so fun we basically stayed there for almost 2 hours!
We were able to see both Fantasmic and World of Color and the big Firework show. The girls tried to stay awake for them but they both slept like champs during it all cause they were so tired from all the activities.
We can't wait to go again!!!
I even got to see my great friend Kim and her darling family when we left Disney. We haven't seen her since my wedding so it was a great way to end a great trip ;-)
