Disneyland Round #2.
Where do I even begin?
So my mom called me back in September and wanted us to travel down to California on honor of Bennett's birthday instead of her coming up here. So we booked the flights and made it happen! A week in disney with a 2 and 3 year old! sounds exhausting. Well, it was, but it was also amazing.
We figured out that it would be more cost effective to buy annual disney passes then it would be to get the socal pass (3 days at disney, 1 lego land, 1 sea world), since we would be coming back to Disney in the spring or next fall and this go around we didn't have to pay for either kid.
Sunday Day #1. We checked in and got our annual passes and entered Disneyland. Waiting in line for Peter Pan for nearly 45 minutes. Bennett dancing to pass the time.
Went on as many rides as we could before our kids were tuckered out (11am) and then walked back to the hotel. We stayed at the Anabella which was Lance's mom's favorite hotel to stay at. It's spanish style and directly across the street from Disney making it an easy commute with a stroller. It's definitely an older hotel, but the best part was that inside the room it had a separate room with a full size daybed that we used as the kids room. They slept together peacefully most nights and we could have the tv on or talk and didn't have to worry they'd wake up.
Each and everyday our kids took between a 2.5 and 4 hour nap! So we also got a daily nap in...it was amazing! They did however wake up between 5am and 6am every morning regardless of how late we stayed up. My little early birds. It ended up being okay that they woke up early because it got the rest of us to get up and start getting ready, have a sit down breakfast, and be at the park gates when they opened.
Thanks mom for inviting us to come out and enjoy a week of family time. I sure to love these two little tikes and am grateful for the memories.
