Our field trip feature for the letter D this week is our 3rd day at Disneyland from our trip back in November 2018. Disneyland is the ultimate field trip. I realized while there that there is so much to see and do, and even learn!
We went during the down week. Meaning it was the week that things were transitioning from halloween to Christmas. So there were no parades, no fireworks in the evenings, and lots of other things were taking a break until the Christmas opening day celebration. We were hoping by going that week that it'd be less busy. It wasn't too bad I guess, and it was kind of fun seeing the Christmas stuff slowly get set up. We were sad that we couldn't come for the opening day of the Holiday celebration. It looked like it would have been amazing.
There were still some fun things to see decorated for Halloweeen. The Haunted House was all decorated in The Nightmare Before Christmas theme. We went on that ride on the first day. We came across this fun scene in a store...
So, these pictures are just in random order because I don't remember exactly when things happened. Alex had been eyeing this Mickey hat for the first 2 days at Disneyland. We finally went and bought it in the afternoon on Day 3, but we certainly heard about buying that hat all morning! He did not forget! He is also showing us a pin he got in the picture below.
I was just amazed at all the fun little details all throughout the Disneyland and California Adventure parks. This V8 sign was just in the outside waiting area by the bathroom in Cars land. It's fun to see everything just tied into the attractions all around.
April was trying to recreate some pictures she saw on Instagram, so that is why there are a lot of pictures with her facing away. This one came out pretty cool. So many picture perfect moments at Disney.
We found a bakery in California Adventure, I think. It was educational too with information on making bread. We stopped and played with some of the interactive displays.
By day 3 everyone had picked out Mickey ears that wanted them. Aric finally decided on the light up Star Wars ones. These were so fun at night.
Alex and I went over to the Fantasyland to ride some of the rides we hadn't gotten to yet.
We did a drawing class at California Adventure. All of us learned to draw Sully from Monsters Inc. The drawings from each of us:
|I think this one is Aaron|
|April--the resident artist in our home|
|I think this one is Dad's|
Seeing Aric's ears light up at night was pretty fun...
It was finally time to go. I was surprised at how sad I was at that moment when we were walking out toward the exit. We lingered a little by the Christmas tree...
Took some pictures, and said goodbye to a fun 3 days at Disneyland...
Some of us said goodbye in their own unique way...
I said goodbye while nearly crying because the memories we made there were just so great. I know it's a lot of money, but if you ever have the chance to visit Disneyland it's worth it. There's so much to see and do, the experience is just incredible. I still think about this trip, and it makes me happy. So many happy memories, and believe me we had moments where things weren't so happy too. Here's to one of the greatest field trips ever! Disneyland!
This wraps up our Letter D Blogging Through the Alphabet. I am linking this up to #abcblogging.
If you'd like to see our other 2 days at Disneyland I have them posted here: Day 1 and Day 2. Also, I did a special post about Cars land.
