Apparently the first time I went to Disneyland, I was less than a year old and obviously don’t remember it. In the 90s, Disneyland was a completely different place or I imagine it was, since again, I was less than a year. My first trip, at 25, was a good one. I got to see a lot of the things I wish I had seen as a kid: the castle in the photo, the tea cups and dumbo ride, and the Disney characters up close and personal. Unfortunately, I went during a time when it’s the busiest: right after Christmas. Some lines were over 3 hours long, which is ridiculous. I plan to go back, with less people (because honestly, I need alone time and I didn’t get much sleep) and more money. I don’t know about magical, but it was really nice.
Now, this is the place I enjoyed the most. I love Disney and Disney characters, but Hollywood and the movies is something I have more interest in.
Armed with my subtle but totally awesome Harry Potter shirt, I made my way to what is the happiest place on Earth for me: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
My younger cousin Daniel (shoot out to Daniel) helped with my photo taking, and at times, they weren’t the best or most flattering:
But, it was awesome and I spent about 3 hours in that one section.
I don’t get to take many trips, even if it is just a 6 hour drive from San Jose. But, I’m glad I got to experience it and I’m grateful to my Auntie Teri who made it all possible.
