Christmas in Disneyland

After spending the last 2 Christmas’s in Whistler, BC we decided to head south to Disneyland this year. We arrived in LA mid morning on the 23rd and drove straight to Dunkin Donuts in Santa Monica. After about 6 weeks of rain in Seattle we were all happy about the  sun and the warm weather.

We spent some time on the Pier and in the shopping district before heading to In n Out Burger and Anaheim.

On the 24th we started our day at 7am in California Adventures. By 9:30 we had 5 top rides done and our Fast Pass for World of Color, the light show at 9pm.

We had Christmas Eve dinner at Catal Restaurant in Downtown Disney and it was great. We then went back to the park for World of Color which we all liked better than Fantasmic at Disneyland.

We were killing it even though it was super crowded. We used fast passes and single rider lines where ever we could. The longest wait of the night was for It’s a Small World, about 45 minutes.

On Saturday we did some other things in LA. And then back to Disneyland on Sunday. Hannah and Larry went right to Hyper Space Mountain and got to ride it twice in a row. Emily and I headed to Peter Pan and still had a 15 minute wait. We also rode space mountain with a fast pass later in the day.

We spent 3, 15 hour plus days in the parks. But it was so much fun.

I hope you all had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!
