Back from Laah Laah Land

Pin It Now! I know I kind of disappeared abruptly from this space for sometime especially after having started it with much gusto. Though there are several reasons for my absence, that will be revealed in future posts, one of them was our visit to Los Angeles,CA. Having heard about it from friends (all good things that is..) we thought it would be a great idea to take our Indian visitor to show her the real America or now as I call it the dreamland America.
Disneyland was our unanimous choice of the very first attraction to visit and it did not disappoint us at all.
After having parked our car in an enormous parking lot we boarded a cute little 'toy' train to enter the world of Disney.

As kids ,we were very fond of many of the disney characters Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck (remember Uncle Scrudge, 9am Sunday mornings ). This was our chance to be kids all over again.

Since it was almost weekend there were long lines for most of the rides. So we ended up enjoying only  a few them.

The celebrate street party was also fun for the kids. The catchy music, the dancing characters and girls in bright colored outfits sets you up in quite a party mood.
There was also a designated area for "Stroller Parking". How thoughtful is that..?

The visit was thoroughly enjoyable. However if any of you planning to be out there I would like to make some suggestions:
  • A day is simply not enough to tour the entire world of disney.In fact we stretched ourselves by staying back late to see the fireworks. So if possible then you should  spend 2-3 days at the least.
  • There are sturdy strollers available for rent. However if you are having babies then you would want to get a nice comfy stroller, the bigger one with cushions and all rather than a lightweight one.I know they are kind of heavy but your baby will thank you for it. 
  • California winters and early summers are rather crisp and cool. So you would want to take a sweater or two.
Do you have any more suggestions ? Do add them in the comment field. I will be back in a few with the final part of our visit to LA.
Ciao !
