"Well, it took many years. I started with many ideas, threw them away, started all over again. And eventually it evolved into what you see today at Disneyland.” - Walt Disney

From twirling teacups to submarines searching for Nemo, Disneyland is overflowing with magic. 

This past November I embarked on my third trip to Disneyland. I was in California for six days and five out of those days were spent frolicking around the parks from open to close. 

During this time I was able to truly get acquainted with and grow in my admiration for both Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure. 

Here you'll find just a few of my favorite snacks, shows, and attractions. Of course, I recommend doing every single thing the parks have to offer, however, this may be helpful if you only have a day or so to wander. 

Unfortunately, some of these attractions may not be available if you visit after the Diamond Celebration is over or after Mad Tea Party Dance Party has left. Personally, I am very disappointed to see such great things go, nevertheless, I'm sure they will be replaced by something even more spectacular. 

From the East Coast to the West Coast, Disney magic is SO real.

 Happy 60th Anniversary Disneyland! You are better than diamonds.
