I'm Going to Disneyland!

Most adults look at me like I'm crazy when I admit that I love Disneyland. Like I-would-go-there-ten-times-a-year-if-I-could love.

But there's long lines.

And crying kids.

And it's so expensive.


All true, but I don't care one whit. Disneyland isn't called The Happiest Place on Earth for nothing. I know if I'm going to spend a day at Disneyland it's going to be a blast and there are parts of the day I'm going to remember forever.

(I could make this into a metaphor about how a good book is similar, but I'm not going to because I'm supposed to be packing.)

I'm going to Disneyland.

And I'm going to ride the Teacups.

And Splash Mountain.

And eat too many churros with my husband and five-year-old monkey.

And that makes me happy. Very, very happy.

Disney is the best! Of course, we are close to Disney World. I take the kids every year. They look forward to the trip. It's truly magical. I'm getting ready to book the trip this year.

LOVE Disney World. I agree, it is a lot of fun. And if you can manage to get there when the doors open the lines for the rides really aren't that bad this time of year (though Disneyland is probably always packed). But who cares. Have a great time!

Take me with you! I was eleven years old last time I visited Disneyland.

We went for the first time last summer. I'd go back in a heartbeat, long lines and all. :-)

Go and enjoy! I was like eight the first time I went, so I hardly even remember it now.

Have a great time!

Have a great time! I love Disneyland. I haven't been there since I was a kid. You have to share your experience when you come back!

I hope you have a wonderful time. Enjoy the food, rides, and magical ambiance.

I just read something about you on query tracker that was very exciting! Is it true? :)

Stephanie Thornton said...

DL- Ha! You beat me to the announcement. You're Speedy Gonzales fast!

See; this is why I need to read blogs more often. NOT ONLY did I miss your AGENT news, but I also missed you being two hours away from me! We could have met!

Ah well. You'll just have to come back someday, right?

Most adults secretly loves Disneyland too. They are just too shy to admit. Me and my wife go there when we were still dating. It is just hard to ignore that little kid inside you.
