Growing up my father used to say Vacation meant two things to most American Families: Yellowstone and Disneyland. Now, I don't know if that is true, but what is true is that Disney and the Mouse behind it all are iconic a way that few other things- maybe Coke-a-Cola and the Yankees- are. So, yes, we went to the Happiest Place on Earth for Christmas. 

We assumed that with the holidays coming up, the park would be busy (though, actually, I suspect it wasn't too bad. We did a weekday but one that still fell on a black-out date and went earlier rather than later) and so rather than trying to "do it all" vowed just to hit a few must-dos and enjoy the rest. As it happened though, I think we did most of the things we wanted to, and were able to enjoy the atmosphere. Disney is so good at creating and controlling all its environments- the place was sparkling, not so much as gum wrapper on the ground and even standing in line felt like part of a ride the way they added in things to entertain you along the way! Most of the day was spent in Adventureland, where Indiana Jones was hands-down the favorite ride of the day. Maybe it was because we grew up on Indiana Jones, Tintin, and other adventurers (Tailspin, anyone?) but the ride felt just like you were in an adventure flick breaking into-and barely escaping- a mummy-filled pyramid! We also ventured into Tomorrowland for Space Mountain, and strolled along Main Street USA. Though there were no rides there, it was one of my favorite parts because everything is so charming. Plus, you get to see Mary Poppins, who is, after all, Practically Perfect In Every Way (Bert was quite charming too!). The Castle was done up for the holidays and beyond its gate was a fairytale of a Fantasyland. That was where we whirled around on the teacups (as you can see below). 

I maaaay have chosen this dotted blouse based on what Minnie Mouse's style preferences might dictate. What can I say? I was a Mickey Mouse fanatic as a kid (there may or may not have been Mickey Mouse curtains in my room growing up).  Adding these sweet ears was the crowning touch.

  5. How FUN that you have outfit photos in Disneyland! I visited one time at the beginning of December when it was all decorated for Christmas, and looks so so magical. I think this is a great, cute but still comfy, outfit for a day at the park.

  8. Aww, this is the best way to spend the holidays! I was in Orlando last fall and SO regret not going to Disney. Harry Potter world monopolized most of my time, but after seeing how they decorated for Halloween, I really was bummed I didn't take a peek in. Also, I don't care how old I am, I'll always always don Minnie Mouse ears. Loved this whole post, haha!
