As you all know, next year our vacation plans are taking us to Disneyland instead of Walt Disney World!  This is a first for us, we have never been to Disneyland, so we are getting excited (except for Sophie, who doesn’t know we are going!)

In the weeks ahead, I thought I would take some time to write what my thoughts are going to be about some of the attractions, parades, shows, fireworks, and dining locations so that I can generate a baseline in my own mind about them.  Then, after we get back, I can compare that baseline with what we experienced on the trip to determine how close we were to our original thoughts!  For now, I’m going to make a list of the attractions that we want to try out at Disneyland.  This is in no particular order:

  • Disneyland Park
    • Adventureland
      • Enchanted Tiki Room
      • Indiana Jones Adventure
      • Jungle Cruise

After a quick look, it’s obvious that I’ve got a lot of research to do, but it certainly is fun research!  Do you see anything missing from my list that I should add to the list, or do you see something on the list that you absolutely think I should totally eliminate from the list?  If so, please let me know in the comments!
