Spring Break 2013 – Disney Dream Day 1

Spring Break 2013 – Disney Dream day 1 Sunday, March 10, 2013 After we left the Universal Studios area, we drove to Cape Canaveral to stay the night at a Country Inn and Suites.  It was a decent hotel.  What was really nice is that they offer a park and cruise for $40.  We didn’t know this until we checked in.  We had planned on leaving our rental car at the cruise terminal garage and […]

LA!! Day 4

We got up early on Friday morning. After we finished packing, we left The Grand Californian and headed back to LA.  Our hotel was in El Segundo…which is really close to LAX.  We had a few hours before our LA tour would start, so we decided to explore a little.  We quickly made our way to the El Segundo beach.  There were a lot of surfers out that morning.  The kids played in the sand […]

Disneyland – Day 3!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!! This was our last day at Disneyland 🙁  For resort guests, it was Extra Magic Hour morning at Disneyland. The park opened at 7 a.m. So, we got up and made our way to the entrance of the park a little after 6 a.m.  It really didn’t seem that early to us.  The whole time we were in California, we could not get our bodies to adjust to the 2-hour time difference.  So, […]

Disneyland – Day 2!!

Our second day at Disneyland, we got up early and went to Disneyland Park!! Main Street looked very pretty with all the Christmas decorations. Sleeping Beauty’s castle was covered in snow.  It is much smaller than Cinderella’s castle at the Magic Kingdom. So, I have always wanted to ride The Matterhorn.  We convinced Taylor to ride it so that we could all ride it together.  It didn’t take very long until we were in our […]

This day was a really exciting day for us!  We got up and headed for Hollywood Studios.  It was the last day of Star Wars Weekends…and that was something we had never been to.  Of course, it did make the park a little more crowded and we didn’t hang out there very long, but it was fun and what made it exciting was we […]
