That title may be a tad hyperbolic, since the time I technically set foot on Disneyland Resort property was actually only 13 years ago, we’re going to go with it since I didn’t actually go to Disneyland my “home”. Let me introduce myself. I’m Ashley, lover of all things Disney, full time mom to three energetic boys and part-time Disney planner. In just a couple of months I will turn the big 3-0 and yes I am dreading it, but more on that later. We are planning this trip, very “last minute” for us. I usually know how we will vacation over the next few years, carefully planning and saving. We weren’t supposed to hit DLR until 2019. But I had that itch, you know the one I’m talking about. I needed a Disney trip on my horizon, something to make me forget about that awful birthday coming up, so the wheels slowly started turning . Now you may be looking at this and thinking, but she has a WDW trip coming up in her signature. Why yes, yes I do, but as any good Disney addict knows, one trip is never enough. But before we dive too deep into the trip details just yet, let me introduce you to the rest of my family. DH is more recently on the Disney train, but his excitement at this trip clearly shows how much he has converted. The practical side of him was saying we don’t need a Disneyland trip two months after our WDW one, but the crazy Disney side won! He is also about to turn 30, he’s also not a fan and works as a rental manager for a trucking company. He is a lover of all things Star Wars and Marvel and most things Disney. C is my precocious 7-year-old. He wants to grow up to be a scientist or Disney imaginer and he really is my Disney kid. I would wager to say he is just a big a fan as me and if not, he will certainly be in due time. He is hesitant of the thrill rides, but I am hoping we can coax him on some rides this time around. J is my sweet 5-year-old. He is shy and reserved, but pretty much melts everyone’s heart. He is very into super heroes, so I am so excited to be able to meet some Marvel guys with him. He won’t do anything thrilling, so lots of rider swaps in our future. Last, we have N, my strong-willed three-year-old. Man this one is a handful, but he loves his thrills. We just took them all to the Texas State Fair and this boy loved everything. He is currently 39 inches, so we need some pixie dust to get us that extra inch in three months. Trip details February 2-February 5 Staying at Homewood Suites Anaheim Convention Center 3 day, 1 park per day tickets Character Dining I am so excited for this quick trip, it’s hard to put into words. I certainly doesn’t feel real yet, but I am so overwhelmed. Even though I have been to DL before, it was so long ago and it’s so different now and different than the WDW I am used to. I hope you will join me in the Disneyland planning fun.
