Our Happy Place Day 1

We just got back from spending 6 magical days in Disneyland. We had so much fun! October is my favorite time to visit the park. It is decorated for Halloween and I absolutely love it. Plus it is never as busy in October, and we go during the week mostly so kids are back in school and we can enjoy the park. I recommend going during the week if possible. We rode rides, ate too much, laughed, watched fireworks and parades, World of Color, enjoyed Mickey's Halloween Party, saw Fantasmic, and watched all the magic and excitement through Carter's eyes. Thank you Steve and Nikki for a wonderful trip. We have been taking Carter to Disneyland since he was 2 months old, but I think this trip was the best. He was excellent, loved getting the characters' autographs, he knew what rides he wanted to ride, and since we have been home he can tell you his favorite things about Disneyland: the fireworks, parades, The Tiki Room, The Little Mermaid Ride, It's A Small World, and riding the rockets (Astro Orbitor).

We left Wednesday morning as soon as Carter was done with breakfast. We only made one stop to change diapers on the way and we arrived at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel by early afternoon. We spent the day and evening in both parks riding rides and had dinner at Naples in downtown Disney.
