We’re Going to Disneyland!!!

Looky what just arrived in my mail last week…


I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to tell you we are going to Disneyland this February!  The plane tickets are bought and the planning has begun.

I love Disney!  My husband and I’s first Disney trip together was to Walt Disney World for our wedding.  Neither of us had ever been to WDW, but we figured not much could go wrong getting married in the Happiest Place on Earth.  We were right – we had a truly magical wedding and came back of lots of amazing memories from that trip.

There is just something about stepping into those parks that makes you instantly happy.  Within the first day at Disney World, we were even discussing plans to come back for a 10 year vow renewal in 2017.  It seemed like a bit of crazy talk at the time, but the time has flown and it no longer seems all that distant.  For now, I am so happy we are able to manage to fit in a trip to Disneyland in early 2015 to give me my Disney fix.

This will be our first big trip as a family of four and everyone’s first time in Disneyland.  The crazy part is that I went to Tokyo Disney on a class trip in 2000, got married in Disney World in 2007 and visited Disneyland Paris in 2009, but it has taken me this long to get to the Disney Park in closest proximity to me!  I am both excited and terrified to navigate the parks with young kids in tow.  It will be a much different trip, but I am guessing it will be totally worth it to experience the Disney magic through them.

Our original plan was to be in the parks for our sons 5th birthday on February 23, but plane ticket prices and holidays have dictated our trip be a couple weeks sooner.  I will still try to plan some special birthday surprises while we are there because I think it is close enough to his birthday to count.

I am also starting to work on a plan to tell the kids the exciting news and can’t wait to share it with you.  Hopefully I can keep it a secret from the kids until February!
