Welcome to part 2 of my California adventure! 
The first part was LA, which you can view here.
The next stop was Anaheim, the home of Disneyland. Honestly I am not a massive theme-park person, however my little sister had her eyes set on the land where wishes come true, so we decided to go. And besides, why fly 14 hours and not do everything? 

I do think Disneyland is getting more and more commercialised. What started off as Walt Disney's imagination, has become a 100 minute queues and overprice food. Despite that, it was still a wonderful adventure. Everything was beautiful, it literally felt like I had stepped into a completely different land. Around every corner there were buildings designed like a scene from a fairytale. 

I'm not a fan of rides at all, so I went on all the 'scenic' rides, like the river cruise and the Peter Pan Adventure. My absolute favourite show from when I was young was Winnie The Pooh, and so I was a jumping-up-and-down kind of excited when I saw the Winnie The Pooh ride. It truely was like I had entered the pages of a Pooh novel, and was strolling along the Hundred Acre Woods.

Another amazing thing was that is was Christmas time and for once it was COLD!!! This may seem normal to many but to me it is such a strange phenomena, since living in the southern hemisphere has engraved Santa on a surfboard into my head. I feel like the coldness and Christmas decorations added such a magical feeling, especially when the parade went on. 
The parade was seriously insane, with floats as big as buildings and lights as colourful as blooming flowers. Also, just when it couldn't get any better, they topped it off with a shower of fake snow.

Disneyland was amazing, and I'm so glad it was incorporated into our trip! Although expensive, it was totally worth it, and made me feel like I was a teeny toddler again. 

Next on our stop was San Diego! 

We actually just landed back in Australia today, and oh my goodness I am tired. For me it's 1:30 am LA time (7:30pm Gold Coast time) and I am fighting fatigue whilst waiting for my boyfriend to get out the shower so we can FaceTime for the first time since arriving back (oh men and there beautification).

Anyways, have you ever been to Disneyland?

Love always,
