We had such a good time at Disneyland! It was Nile and my first trip! Everything they say about Disneyland is true, it really is a magical place!
I loved it and I find myself thinking about it from time to time, with very fond memories. I am definitely going back on our return trip to the States in two years when Nile will be three years old and more able to enjoy it.
The whole park is completely over the top, as only Disney can do. I was continually and constantly impressed by how clean the place is and how nice all of the employees are. All of the shops are so cute, I love them. I just wanted to look at and buy stuff all day! I didn't though, don't worry. The rides were not even my priority, but it was so fun when we did go on them.
Neil's dad rented a wheelchair because of his bum knee. Read: $70 wheelchair rental = automatic bump to the front of the line for wheelchair person plus six guests = boo yah!

Neil is still a kid at heart. He really wanted to go to the "Jedi Training" event, so we did. Turns out it's for little kids, but you could tell he wanted to join.
Neil with our Mickey balloon-in-a-balloon. I loved this thing, it lights up like this:
The Wonderful World of Color!

Conjures up images in my mind of a penniless and down on his luck Walt Disney, napping on a park bench where he literally DREAMED of Disneyland.
My houndstooth classic Mickey doll! He is so cute!!!!
