Top tips for Visits to Disneyland California and California Adventure


Fresh from a week in Santa Monica, I felt ready and strong enough for a day at the Happiest Place on Earth, with the Most Excited Girl on Earth. It’s a good time to visit – the park is celebrating its 60th anniversary and there is a brand new parade and fireworks show to mark […]
