The Disney Way

Over Easter break, my boyfriend and I took a short trip to Anaheim, California. Anaheim (and the LA area) is probably our favourite place to go. Not only is it the most affordable, and the closest home away from home for us, it is also where Disneyland (and great shopping) is. This year, the occasion was my boyfriend's birthday. Here is my full trip report...

Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree was decorated in springtime decor and Easter eggs. Disneyland held a fun Easter egg hunt, Egg-stravaganza. For $5, you buy a map to hunt down your eggs, and when you've fount them all, you can redeem your prize at the main store. Or you can choose to not hunt your eggs, and redeem your prize immediately. We decided against the egg hunt due to time constraints but maybe next year!

World of Colour is my favourite show at California Adventure, and my trip just isn't complete unless I watch it twice!

As I had previously mentioned in an earlier entry, my boyfriend and I celebrated his dinner at the Blue Bayou. Their food was delicious, and I now understand why it's always busy! Our Fantasmic package included dinner, a special viewing area for Fantastic and a cute cushion for your tushie. My favourite food at Disneyland is their gumbo. I've discovered that all the gumbos at Disneyland each have a different recipe. I've always loved the steak jumbo served at Royal Street Veranda just above the Pirates of Caribbean ride but when I tried it at Cafe Orleans, it was completely different (and disappointing). I was so happy to find out that Blue Bayou's gumbo was even better than Royal Street Veranda's. During dinner, it started raining - pouring, which was great for California. But unfortunately, this meant the first showing of Fantastic and the fireworks show was cancelled. We headed over two California Adventure to watch World of Color, of course, which shows rain or shine, then back to Disneyland as the rain stopped. Lucky for us, they decided it was safe to go on with second showing of Fantastic. Since the rain has scared away most of the crowds, we sat front row watching the show. It was the perfect end to our night.

That concludes my trip to Disneyland this year!
