Our time at Disneyland was magical! My almost five-year-old and I spent a wonderful day-and-a-half at the park and it just wasn’t enough time. While we loved pretty much everything about the experience, we had to have our favourite rides and experiences, right? Here they are, through a mix of photos from our last trip as well as our time at Disneyland in 2014:
Fantasyland ride: Mad Tea Party
So much fun we went on it over and over and over again.
Fantasyland: Kind Arthur’s Carousel
It’s a gorgeous carousel and rarely has a queue.
Fantasyland: Dumbo The Flying Elephant
This is just fun. Best to visit in the morning when the lines are short.
Character meet and greets
Ask at guest services for a schedule of character meet and greets so you’re always the first one there.
Tomorrow land: Jedi training: The Trials of the Temple
My daughter still talks about defeating Darth Vader. Read about our experience here.
Tomorrow land: Buzz Lightyear ride
We went on this ride so many times. My daughter loved the laser gun that you use to shoot targets.
Fantasyland: Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
Absolutely favourite of my daughter’s. Read about our experience here.
Mickey’s Toontown photo opps
While there are cool rides in Toontown, my daughter loved all of the pretend “toon” things she could climb on.
Fantasyland: Cinderella’s castle
Enchanting – an absolute must to walk through.
Tomorrowland rides: Star Tours and Space Mountain
A bit scary for little ones perhaps, but we did them anyway and survived to tell the tale.
Frontierland: Jungle Cruise & Tarzan’s Tree House
Easy fun for little ones.
Minnie & Friends Character Breakfast at the Plaza Inn
The only place to meet characters like Winnie The Pooh, Chip & Dale and Eeyore. Book in advance.
