Somehow my sister and I conned our parents into an end-of-summer Disneyland extravaganza. I don't think I've ever spent four full days at the Land--but we made sure to do it right. Magic hours, cross-park power walks, leisurely lunches, extra time in New Orleans Square, afternoon poolside naps, daily Dole Whips/caramel apples/Gibson Girl cones/Mickey Premium bars, classic photo opps, fireworks from the Plaza Inn, my very own pair of Mickey ears, etc. It's just the most crowded, commercial, magical, magical, magical place in the world. Truly, the happiest. As we made an exhausted last round of the classics on our last chilly morning, I thought of all the moments with my family and friends that live down every street, on every ride, in every gift store. I sure do love that place.
And so, a million photos that mean more to me than they should. Disneyland now, California Adventure later.
