Disney Resort is not just about the rides, it is about the smells, the sounds, the feel, the air and well simply the atmosphere that makes it special and magical. You don't even have to enter the parks to feel the magic if you truly feel the magic.
We get annual passes to Disneyland and DCA every year. Our passes have black out dates but that does not stop us from having fun because it is more than just the rides, it is well like I said earlier, the atmosphere.
Of course entering the parks is the most fun of all but we find plenty to do on our black out days. Our room has the Disney feel, everything in the entire area actually has the Disney feel even as far as The Block of Orange.
When we first get to Anaheim we stop at Wal Mart to buy our snacks and such for our vacation. Then we head to our room where we unload and unpack. Then it is off to Downtown Disney where we get to experience live music, wonderful sights, great shopping and those amazing smells that are in the air. After we eat at Wetzels Pretzels and enjoy some music we head back to our room. The fun does not end there, if we get back early enough we can watch the fireworks from Pizza Press at our hotel.
The next day we are able to enter the parks which is of course the best part of the trip. When we first enter the main gait we throw our troubles away. We are excited to hear the Disney music as we walk along and then decide which part to enter first. Once we enter we just stop to take it all in, to really enjoy where we are. Slowly we stroll down Main Street taking in the sights, smells and sounds along the way. Usually we head to Adventureland, from there we never know where the day will take us. As we wait in line for attractions we visit and enjoy just being there.
On our other block out days we like to walk along Harbor Boulevard and check out all of the shops. It is also a lot of fun to go to Downtown Disney for entertainment and atmosphere again. We sometimes wander around the Disneyland Hotel area to check out their shops and sites.
One thing we never are is bored because no matter what we do while we are in Anaheim, it is fun, it is exciting and it is magical
