I’m back from a lovely 2 day trip to the Disneyland Resort for my birthday & guess what that means… A photo report! There’s lots of images today, so let’s get to it:
The theme park information sign is back out by all bag search booths
When DCA opens, there’s 2 paths to go, Midway Mania’s line & the Princess Breakfast at Ariel’s Grotto
Guess this sign will have to be changed soon
My score this time wasn’t as good as my last trip
