Days 11 and 12... Thirty Days of Thanksgiving!

We've hit it... days 11 and 12 of the Thirty Days of Thanksgiving Blog Challege! I'm cheating again and combining two days into one... don't judge, just enjoy! ;-)

For Days 11 & 12, I am thankful we live 25 minutes away from ...

DISNEYLAND!


I grew up in Northern California, and distinctly remember as a child having to endure awful trips all the way down to Southern California for Disneyland. Big yuck! Now, it's just a short ride in the car to get to the Happiest Place on Earth.


Nothing beats having an Annual Passport, either. Feel like grabbing a churro and a zip on the Matterhorn, then head home? Maybe a turkey leg and a spin on the teacups (not suggested, by the way) after work? How about a Dole Whip after dinner at home, enjoyed while watching an enchanting performace at the Tiki Room, topped off with a ride with Indiana Jones? No problem!

Another advantage to an Annual Passport is going when the throngs of people (and heel-killing strollers) are gone. February and early October are amazing! Little - if any - lines, no reservations for restaurants required, being able to walk freely without bumping into people... awesome! On occassions, it's seemed like they've opened the park for us few special people. ;-)



Yay for Disneyland!
