We finally did it, we went to Disneyland. The last time I went to Disneyland, California Adventure did not even exist. My kids have been begging to go, but we told them we would consider in a few years. Little did they know we had a trip already booked at the Grand California Hotel and they were going to be surprised in a few weeks!
No Disney surprise is complete without a “surprise package”. I put together a few Mickey shirts (mine was my favorite)and hats, a travel board game and a few other things. The Mickey ears and scratch off reveal cards were definitely the highlight! When they woke up in the morning, we got ready like we would a normal school morning. However, when it was time to go to the bus- we sat them down on the couch and literally blew their minds! They could not believe what we were saying. Their dreams were coming true!
The trip was full of magic. Patrick rode his first ride! Nora turned into a princess and Jack went on his first “real” roller-coaster! The Grand California was everything and more. The location is perfection, and the service is second to none. This was truly the most magical trip.
