Disneyland Fun

Monday, May 19, 2014

I'm still trying to catch my breath from this weekend...it was jam packed (of fun!). Saturday I threw my sis-in-law a baby shower (I can't wait to show you details this week!) and Sunday we took on Disneyland with Lala.
We had previously bought a pass that allowed us to go two separate days but before the summer crowds hit. We had SO much fun and M was the daddy of the year waiting in the Frozen princess line for 2.5 hours. Which is crazy because we got there at 8:15 and they open at 8:00. What?! It was WELL worth it...

Elsa and Anna were so sweet and spent a lot of time with us. I know she will be talking about this for weeks.

 We met up with a friend and boy were they sweet together!

Merida from Brave had Blair in a trance.

The typical Disneyland shot.

It wouldn't be Disneyland for me without a corn dog. Mmm Mmm good!

Here are some of my recommendations for Disneyland with a 2 year old...

1. Bring a good stroller with storage room (for your souvenirs, jackets, food, water etc) and that reclines so your kid can nap

2. Bring sunscreen, snacks, sunnies, hat. Typical essentials.

3. Bring your own snacks/water bottles and save a few bucks.

4. Tag team lines. I would wait in one while M or Lala rode with Blair and vice versa. Winning.

5. Visit Big Thunder Ranch...I had NO idea this existed! It's a petting zoo and also has an area with TONS of characters. We got pics with the second string Mickey and Minnie for a five minute wait. Do it!

6. Fantasyland is where it's mostly at. Along with Winnie the Pooh and the train that goes around the park. Toon town also has a fun playground to get wiggles out.

7. The parades are worth it. Soundsational is bomb!

8. If your kid knows and loves Frozen then bolt to that line first. It will still be at least 2 hours but you do it once then never again. If your kid has no idea who that is but you still want to see princesses then go to the Enchanted Fair and see the "old classic" princesses in less than 15 minutes! 

9. Get a corn dog. Thank me later.

10. Buy Frozen toys at the Enchanted Boutique and/or the Disney store in Downtown Disney. Target is sold out friends. My mom got B a set of Frozen figurines then I found a doll that is Elsa AND Anna...you just flip the dress upside down! Now that's the best of both worlds!


  1. How fun! You're so lucky to live close to Disneyland! We took O last year!

  2. Ah! So glad you posted this and shared your tips! We are so excited for our Disneyland trip this weekend!

  3. Good thing you got down there this weekend! Disneyland just raised their prices to $96 a ticket!

  4. So fun and what great tips!! We are hoping to head out to Disneyland next April just before Ellie is two so this totally helps me plan!

    Ps. I'm hosting a giveaway on my blog for a $20 shop credit to Sweet T Baby Boutique (the cutest hair accessories for you and your little) be sure to check it out!


  5. omg I am dying at the image of the Elsa-flip-Anna doll! lol! 2.5 hours to see the Frozen princesses? J will NEVER want to go to DLand if I tell him that! Love the Big Thunder Ranch tip! I'm hoping they'll bring back the SoCal Annual Pass after the summer. I'd been waiting to get it and now they've stopped selling them. Was this Blair's first trip?
