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