My son and I loved our time at Disneyland, https://thesunmama.com/2018/01/the-magic-begins-here/ but we also had tons of fun visiting Disney’s California Adventure!! We were so blessed to be given this amazing trip! I absolutely love traveling to Disney with my special needs child. Everyone is always so understanding and kind to my son…
We had so much fun exploring this wonderful theme park together! With Magic Morning access, we blissfully entered the park long before the park actually opened to the public. We walked right onto several rides with absolutely no waiting!
Monsters Inc is one of Boo’s favorite movies and we rode it twice in a row!
After that we wandered into A Bug’s Land and rode our fave Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train. After happily exploring this land we headed over to Cars Land to search for my little boy’s favorite race car ever, Lightning McQueen!!!
Boo was grinning ear to ear after we rode The Cars Ride and we laughed and giggled when we saw Mater drive by! We were having so much fun exploring Cars Land, when Boo grabbed my hand and pulled me toward…. Lightning Mcqueen himself!!! “Mama!”, he squealed as he propelled me towards the gleaming red car. I know from past trips, McQueen is not always out to meet people so this was an absolutely amazing Christmas gift for us!
Afer all that excitement it was time for a snack so we headed over to the wharf to visit Cannery Row. Honestly this is my favorite part of this theme park because it has that wonderful peaceful feeling of being in Monterey …. Boo LOVED sampling fresh homemade sourdough bread and enjoying chocolates from Ghirardelli’s.
After our snack we headed over to ride The Little Mermaid and Boo was excited to meet Elena of Avalor!! Then we headed over to my favorite ride– Soarin’! Boo loves this ride too and it’s one that we never miss when we come to Disney!
We must have had some magical Pixie Dust come our way because all of the sudden who was crossing our path but Mickey Mouse!!! Boo was thrilled! Our day could not be more perfect….
My loyal readers will know that my family and I love all things superhero! So we were super excited to meet some of the Guardians of the Galaxy!!!
We had a fantastic time having a dance off with Star-Lord and Gamora!! In fact, this was my fave part of the whole trip LOL! I thought to myself that this was just about perfect when all of the sudden we heard something behind us…. “I. Am. Groot.” OMG OMG OMG!!!!! I looked over at my little boy and his jaw had dropped! Groot has to be our all time fave character from the GOTG movies!! This was a perfect end to a perfect day!
I hope you enjoyed the last installment of my Disney Series and as I think about my next adventure with my little boy, I’d love to hear from my readers– What family friendly adventure do you recommend?
