We are a Disneyland family… all of us!  We LOVE Disneyland and about a year ago we talked most all of the rest of my family into a fun weekend trip to Disneyland together!

It’s hard to get so many people in a picture at one time- especially at Disneyland!  The photo above has everyone that went along but my sister, Camey (we couldn’t find her at that second).

A photo with my sister’s waiting for the World of Color show… Louise, Me, Camey!

 

You can’t miss the World of Color show at California Adventures… it’s amazing!  Totally worth the wait (even at this time of year when the evenings get a little chilly).

First thing in the morning Aunt Louise and cousins patiently waiting while the World of Color passes were grabbed!

 

If you’ve never been to Disneyland in the Fall, you’re in for a big treat!  It completely transforms into a magical autumn inspired Kingdom!

She stole everyone’s heart that met her, she got to wear her princess dresses all day long, and she’s the center of all of our attention AND rightly so :)

This time of year you might be lucky enough to see Jack Skeleton out and about… he doesn’t make an appearance very often so we were really excited to snap this picture!  Jake’s favorite character…

Our kids love the Mickey Suckers and so they had to share this tradition with their cousins…

My bro-in-law, Travis, is a pretty humorous guy and while we were in Disneyland it was his mom’s birthday SO, he snapped a picture with every character we saw holding this sign and then posted them on Facebook all day long… awesome idea, huh :)

You can probably tell that we had a wonderful trip… the weather was perfect, the crowds weren’t bad at all, and we made a lot of fun memories with my family.

    Wow it looked like an amazing weekend!!! Our family is dreaming of a holiday in Disneyland all the way from Australia when is the best time of year to go do you think?

      Hi Sarz! It’s so nice to meet you :) I think the fall or spring is a lovely time of year at Disneyland… the weather is mild, the lines are shorter, and the crowds are small. Mid-week visits are always better with crowds too but anytime would be perfectly magical I’m sure! I hope you and your family will be able to visit, although it would be a long ways from Australia. The pie is quiet a pleaser too! Thanks for stopping by and come back again soon. xoxo~ Ruthie
