This is our very first trip as a family to Disneyland and the girls loved it. All but one of my siblings met us there and it was so fun to see cousins we haven't seen for almost a year. While I waited in line for the Princess Fan Fair to open, Paul took Anna on her very first ride...Space Mountain! So scary for her very first experience at Disneyland. She, of course, hated it, but was excited to try out everything else. If you ask her which rides she liked she'll tell you that she liked everything but the space ride. Her favorites were Pirates and Buzz Lightyear.
Lainie couldn't go on any of the big rides, but enjoyed everything in Toon Town and it actually surprised me how much she and Ava could go on. She loved meeting all the disney characters. Her least favorite of the day had to be the 3D show we watched. There was a scary snake in it and she freaked out when it hissed at her.
We had fun exploring the entire place. I'm sure we'll have to go back at least once a year now. It was a good time for all.
