Photos from Recent Disneyland Trip

This post is just to illustrate how beautiful Disneyland is and how the 60th anniversary decoration of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle is. I will also show some of the better photos of the three night time entertainment venues: Disneyland Forever, World of Color, and Paint the Night. I have already written about these, but more photos is never a bad thing. More to come later!IMG_4149 IMG_3960 IMG_4025 IMG_1061 IMG_0462 IMG_1060 IMG_1171 IMG_1177

Disneyland Trip Report and Blog Update

Just as an update-I am probably going to keep this site up for a long time. We are still getting our new website going familytravelescapades.com. I am going to keep posting on here as well.
I may post some things other than Disney.

As a quick note, we just got back last Monday late from a visit to Disneyland. It was our second visit out there and I must say I will never go in the summer again! It was hot and crowded. There was still a lot of Disney Magic though!

We have both written articles about the comparison of Disney World and Disneyland and our articles were brief. I love both parks for different reasons. I feel like I am “cheating” on WDW to love Disneyland, but I can’t help it. There is a different sort of charm at Disneyland.

We stayed at The Grand Californian and loved it so if anyone is thinking of visiting, I highly recommend this as a place to stay.

The 60th anniversary celebration was going on and there were some new nighttime celebrations. The World of Color was new and re-imagined. Disneyland Forever was the new fireworks show with outstanding projections on Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, The Matterhorn, Main Street U.S.A., and It’s A Small World. The projections were truly amazing. There were projections of orange groves, clips of favorite characters, etc. There was also a nighttime parade called Paint The Night that was spectacular. It looked like an amped- up Mainstreet Electrical Parade that is a staple at The Magic Kingdom.

Although I will continue to write on this blog as earlier stated, I still hope you check out our new website http://www.familytravelescapades.com. On the website you can also follow us on twitter, Facebook, instagram, and pinterest. I hope you will check it out!
