disneyland, knotts and legoland, oh my!

disneyland

We had a great time at Disneyland on thursday,
Disney's California Adventure on friday,
Knott's Berry Farm on saturday,
and Legoland on sunday.

whew!

This was our first time ever to visit any of them...
and I have to admit that we were shocked at the size of Disneyland's castle!
(it's about 1/4 the size of Cinderella's castle at DW)



Tessa gets so excited about the characters still...
(which makes it so much fun!)



and Jessie is her FAVORITE right now...



She could pick out any toy
and she chose this Jessie hat
which she then wanted to wear the rest of the trip!



California Adventure is very pretty...



and I beat everyone at the Buzz Lightyear game :)







We spent New Year's Eve at Disney's California Adventure Park,
and they handed out hats and noise makers to everyone.

disneyland on New Year's!

And we spent New Year's Day riding roller coasters
at Knott's Berry Farm (they have 10!)

We rode every roller coaster at least once,
twice if we could.
(our family's favorite ride)







And we think Disneyland's Space Mountain is SO MUCH BETTER than Disneyworld's!

Tessa is our little thrill-seeker...
(I think she's braver than the boys)
the bigger the rollercoster,
with the most twists,
backwards,
uside down loops,
the better!

She wants to ride in the very front.

And as soon as the ride starts her hands immediately go up!



Legoland was fun...
but a little low key for us :)









We had a great time,
together time we needed...

but we really missed Eden :)

p.s. I randomly found the app cross process
and used on all of these pictures,
isn't it fun?

I love roller coasters but it has been a long time since I have been on one. Looks like you guys had a great time. Can't wait to take my 18 month old to an amusement park!

Loved your pics! Especially the one of your daughter on the roller coaster..the look on her face is priceless!

I just went to CA for the first time with my daughter in December. We went to Disneyland too. We totally missed Space Mountain...We were thinking it would be similar to WDW and completely overlooked it. I wish we would have known it was so much different. It looked like alot of fun!

LOVE Disneyland. My sister and I would go every time i visited her whe she lived in LA. OUr favorite is Soarin', in California Adventure. We try and ride it as many times as we can without neglecting the rest of the parks! Looks like you guys had a blast!

shoot - wish I had known you were coming to southern Ca?? Guess I'm not super observant....but next time you come let me know - my husband works at Disneyland...could get you in to things like a backstage tour and meet & greet with the characters at the Aladdin show...just fun 'extra' stuff.
And it would be great to meet you guys!
