Disneyland, Los Angeles

DisneylandI have grown up seeing the buffooneries of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and their friends so the idea of a trip to Disneyland, the home of these comic characters, excited me as much as my 12 yr daughter. She wanted to see the Disney Princesses and I wanted to see what exactly a fantasy land looked like.

Though everybody suggested Disney World of Hong Kong, but we were excited about the Disneyland Park of Los Angeles which is the first park made under the direct supervision of Walter Disney. Visiting the park in Los Angeles served both the purposes of enjoying the theme park and the experiencing Hollywood glamour! Also our 15 th wedding Anniversary called for a celebration. So it was decided that LA it was!!

Three days in Disneyland not only made us forget that we were two, 40 years old adults, but the super excitement and happiness on face of our 12 year old made all the expenditure worthwhile. If I could, I would spend again and take our daughter to Disneyland again…

Though the queues were long but not a moment was dull or boring in the theme park. The rides were thrilling and exciting. The life-size houses of Disney characters were everything like the story. The actors dressed as Disney characters were ready to please every kid with photograph….. The parade in the evening seemed much more fantastic because of the vantage point in the front that we managed to grab. It was a very happy experience…….I really never wanted it to end!

About shoma abhyankar

I like to believe that I am a creative person. I read, write, paint, sketch, rustle up some quick and some elaborate meals for friends and family, love chess, su-doku and scrabble, can hum an old Hindi song tentatively, always stand up for women rights, hate fake people, bugs, roaches, spiders and cigarette smokers!! I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture in 1998. Soon after, I married an officer in Indian Air Force and have been on move since then. For a brief time of two years when we were posted in Pune, I worked as a junior architect in a firm. Being aware of frequent movement that we would have to live with, I chose to be a homemaker and concentrated on creating a warm and welcoming home for my family. But sitting at home without any creative activity was not my cup of tea. I learnt candle making and soon put up an exhibition at Poona Club when my daughter was barely a year old. I also enjoyed a short stint as a home-based entrepreneur, supplying chocolates and cakes on demand, while we were posted in Bareilly. With an inclination towards writing, I completed a diploma in ‘Creative Writing in English’ from Symbiosis College of Distance Learning, Pune. Then I discovered the blogosphere. Now I hope to not only travel and share my experiences with the world but also to pen a book someday....

    Disneyland is always fun no matter what age you are. I took my daughters (ages 2 & 3) and they loved it! Seeing the princesses is the best part 😀
