Yesterday started off as a rainy and chilly day, and we had planned to go to Disneyland, so we did, thinking it wouldn’t be very crowded. Well it was packed! Luckily the rain did stop, but we ended up going on only a few rides due to long lines and closed attractions.
After riding Pirates of the Caribbean with the family, I took the opportunity to let the kids go on their favorite rides while I took in some of the scenery. Sleeping Beauty's castle is the iconic Disneyland landmark, and it's fun to walk through the narrow passages and see clips of the movie. The details inside and out are brilliant!
Disneyland’s garden spaces are theme-based and it’s fun to see this creative side of the park. These lettuces and citrus trees look amazing in the shadow of Tomorrowland. I love colors of each row of veggies!
For an authentic Mexican meal, we stopped in at Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante and had street tacos, enchiladas and tamales. So good! The architecture is fun to look at and the tiled windows, niches and succulents are inspiring!
Walking down Main Street really does transport me (in my heart and soul) to an earlier decade. The shops, signage and quaint restaurants are beautifully detailed. The huge tree at one end is amazing, especially at night with all the gorgeous holiday lights twinkling!
But, my favorite spot of all is New Orleans Square. It looks like they’re already getting ready for Mardi Gras! With the gumbo, beignets and Dixieland bands, it the next best thing to the big easy!
do something amazing today!
