Who Went: Mark & Jeanne for our 25th Wedding Anniversary
Where we stayed: Grand Californian at Disneyland
and Bellagio in Las Vegas
We didn’t take any pictures during this trip, though I wish we had. In particular the Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventure was awesome. It was so well done that it almost felt like you were inside the Cars Movie.
For the most part the attractions at Disneyland are very similar to the attractions at DisneyWorld, but in a very small park so everything is crammed together. We tried to do the Materhorn, but Mark couldn’t bend his knees enough to sit in the seat, and they had to stop the ride to let us off.
We were amazed at Disney’s World of Color show. The sound system was absolutely incredible. They did a terrific job choreographing water jets, lights, music and projected images. In DisneyLand it appears that most of the guests are local, and they all have their Magic Ear hats, which change color along with the colors of the show. Thousands of them!!
DisneyLand is so compact that one of the exits from our hotel is inside the park itself. The hotel was excellent. We missed the convenience of the Magic Express in Orlando.
