Good Morning! It’s Sydnee here this fine Tuesday and since we have a trip to Disneyland coming up pretty soon I thought I would share my top Disneyland moments, this basically means those moments that make you happy and make your Disney trip 10x more magical.
- Getting FastPasses then getting to use them almost right away
This happened quite a few times on our last trip, we ended up walking by the ride when FastPasses were still available and you could use them within 5-10 minutes. I’m not the most patient person so you can imagine my joy of getting on some rides rather quickly.
2. When the line for a ride is short so you can go on it more than one time in a row
This doesn’t happen often but when it does it is truly amazing. Sometimes late at night we all go on Indiana Jones and we see that the line is short so we can hop the rope or walk back around and get in line again. Not everyone goes, it’s usually just my dad and I but for Indiana Jones being a favorite ride of mine and my dad’s I’d say we get pretty lucky when we get to ride it 2 or 3 times in a row.
3. Getting Starbucks and Riding the Train
I’ll admit that rushing to all the rides is a tiring experience so getting on the train is a relaxing “ride” that lets you rest up for the rest of the day especially if you close down the park like we do. Before we got on the train we get some Starbs so we can rest and literally recharge with some much needed caffeine.
4. That feeling when you’re upside down on California Screamin’
California Screamin’ is my favorite ride. Rollercoasters are definietely my thing and I practically live for that upside down feeling. On Screamin’ it’s different because you’re in the happiest place on Earth, I love all of the views from those high points and being able to go fast. I think I like being up so high because I’m closer to Thor on Asgard.
5. Sitting by the window over by Radiator Springs Racers at Flo’s V8 Cafe
Eating my cars waffles and watching Radiator Springs Racers zoom by is the ultimate morning experience. When you sit over there you also get to watch Mater and Lightning McQueen go by as they make their way around Cars Land. Not only are the views amazing but the waffles and just the overall atmosphere of Flo’s.
6. Raining in Disney
Some people don’t like the rain and that’s fine but I love rainy Disney days. It drives some people away so it is a little bit less crowded and walking on Mains Street or waiting in line for Pirates is my favorite thing to do on rainy or cloudy days in the park.
7. Waiting in line for Big Thunder Mountain during fireworks
I love watching the fireworks with the wildest ride in the wilderness in the background. Riding the ride while the fireworks are going on is also pretty spectacular but it doesn’t happen often.
8. That first bite of a churro
When the churro is still a little warm and the cinnamon sugar hits your tongue just right and it’s soft a gooey and amazing and it reminds you of all things right in the world. Yeah I love churros if you can’t tell and the whole thing is great but the first bite is especially magical.
9. The smell of Pirates of the Caribbean
I’m not sure if some of you find this gross but I love the smell of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. I’m pretty sure it’s the water and it’s probably just dirty and muggy but I don’t care. I’ve been on this ride a million times and the smell has become kind of a comforting and familiar smell. Not saying I want the house to smell like it but I miss it sometimes. Sorry if this is weird.
10. Seeing it decorated for Halloween or Christmas for the first time that year
Disneyland is one thing. Disneyland decorated for Halloween or Christmas is a completely different thing. My Disneyland experience is enhanced to the max when it is decorated for either holiday. My love for Halloween and Christmas is so strong but add Disney in that mix oh geez I’m going to explode with holiday cheer and it’s only August. My favorite Halloween addition is the pumpkin on Main Street and all of the pumpkin flavored treats. My favorite Christmas addition is the tree on Main Street. MY FAVORITE HALLOWEEN AND CHRISTMAS ADDITION IS.. DRUM ROLL PLEASE ………………………………..
THE HAUNTED MANSION HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the Nightmare before Christmas so seeing it come to life during the Haunted Mansion Holiday is a pretty mind blowing experience. My favorite addition to the ride is the Gingerbread House that changes every year, I can smell it now…..
