Sorry, I haven't had a post for a week. I went out of town for a week, and failed to have posts ready before I left.
So I just spent a week in California with beautiful weather, and a lot of time with Mickey and Goofy :) I am lucky and I have the best family ever. I got to spend a week with my entire family, and it was so much fun. My nieces and nephews are the perfect ages for Disneyland, so we had a blast.
Disneyland was always our family vacation growing up, which I didn't mind. However, as soon as I graduated High School, I did learn that there are a lot of amazing places out there to travel to. I love traveling.
Disneyland or Disney World with my nieces and nephews is so much fun though. My favorite ride has always been Peter Pan, probably because I always have wished that I could fly :) Now I really like the new Cars ride and also the Toy Story ride.
This year we went to the World of Colors for the first time which is a huge water show, and I have to say it was pretty amazing. I also saw the fireworks one night and Fantasmic. We did it all.
One special experience I had was when I was getting off a ride with my 10 year old niece and there were some people that were waiting to get on, and they did not have to wait in line. She asked me what they were doing and why they didn't have to go through the line. They had some autism awareness shirts on, so I had the opportunity to explain to her how awesome Disney is (although I have heard they may be changing the program due to people taking advantage of the program without having a disability, which is really sad that people do that.)
I explained a little to her about how some people have special needs and have much more difficult lives than we do, so what Disney does is they allow them to be able to have the best time they can at the park with their families without having to worry about standing in line. I also explained that for some families if they had to stand in line, they would never have the opportunity to go to Disneyland because it would be too hard.
I love when I get little opportunities to explain things like this to the kids in my life (and the adults too.)
