Summer Diaries: Disneyland

Disney Gate 2

I could go on and on for days telling you what I love about L.A. And surely on top of my list is Disneyland! It just never gets old. It makes you forget how old you are, and just go back to childhood once you enter the gates of the happiest place on earth! Is it evident from my smile on that picture? Lol.

On the first day of my sweet little summer break, I spent the whole time with two of my friends at Disneyland. We’ve all gone before, but since it was Disneyland’s 60th anniversary, we decided to check out Disneyland’s diamond celebration.

We arrived hungry, so we started munching on treats. My favorite was the raspberry macaron. It was reaaaally yummy! And who can resist these cute pastries anyway? You can buy them at the Jolly Holiday Bakery in Main Street.

Dole Whip

Fancy something to quench your thirst? The Dole whip is for you! Soft serves and floats are sold at the Tiki Juice Bar in Frontierland.

We didn’t have enough time to ride a lot of the attractions, so we just tried the ones we haven’t done before like the Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Star Tours, and Matterhorn Bobsleds, where we screamed our lungs out. Lol.

Mickey Beignet

We had dinner at New Orleans Café, ’cause we wanted to try the Mickey beignets. Other than that, we shared a bowl of gumbo, and the Monte Cristo sandwich, which were both good, especially the former.

Gumbo Monte Cristo

Café Orleans is located in New Orleans Square. There can be a wait of a minimum of 20 to 30 minutes, but you can always make a reservation ahead of time.

Later on, all the people were getting ready to watch the parade and the fireworks. It was already crowded in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle, but I insisted to try to find a place there, and luckily we did!

The fireworks display was perfect and magical. It’s always my most awaited and favorite part when visiting the ‘Land. I felt like a kid once again. What’s your favorite part of Disneyland?

Hmmmm, now I’m craving for a new adventure.. Stay tuned for my next Summer Diaries post. 😉
