Taking a Toddler to Disneyland

See my previous posts about what I pack, going with a baby, going at Christmas, and going with an 11-month-old.

One of the things I am most looking forward to as my daughter becomes a toddler is taking her to Disneyland. I already have a list of things to do with her as she is able to do and participate more at Disneyland:

  • I cannot wait to take her to see characters. I want to watch her be excited, thinking they’re real and take pictures with them and hug them. Now that she watches shows she will also be able to recognize more of the characters.
  • I am excited for her to experience different rides and to have favorite rides. She currently seems to enjoy the boat rides but also just tolerates when I take her on new rides. I think she will enjoy the teacups and King Arthur’s Carousel. She’ll also be able to shoot in Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters and Toy Story Mania, and start driving an Autopia car.
  • Now that she can run around, she can play in the Redwood Creek Trail, Toontown, and Tom Sawyer’s Island.
  • I’m excited to take her to Turtle Talk with Crush in California Adventure, especially because she currently loves marine animals.
  • Excited to watch princess shows at the Royal Theatre. Kids get to sit in the front of this interactive storytelling of a princess story.
