There’s no place most festive around our area than Disneyland. Now that Baby H is older, we are able to spend time at disney for longer hours (currently about 4-5 hours before he poops out and needs a long nap). We braved the crowds and spent an evening at disney on a weeknight and enjoyed seeing all the decorations light up and celebrated the season as a family.
We found a spot along Main St. and waited for the firework show to starts. This is one of my favorite thing to see during the holidays, listening to the music and the seeing the fireworks, I still get goosebumps every time. Here’s a video on you tube.
Baby H is not scared of the fireworks, but he really doesn’t know what to make of it either. If you see his face, he seems to be mesmerized by it. He cuddled with dad during the whole firework show. It “snows” after the fireworks and boy did he loved that. He kept pointing at it and squeaking with joy. I was so happy seeing him enjoying it.
Our visit to Disney would not be complete without going to Baby H’s favorite ride right now, It’s A Small World. Some days it’s so busy that all we get to do is go on this ride and the petting zoo area. Since the ride is decorated differently during the holidays, he is taking time to look everywhere and examining the changes. Other times during the year, he would dance and point at all the familiar characters, but during the holidays, not so much. He is more mellow with awe in his face.
We stayed until the park closed and was able to walk around the park with no crowds on our way back to the main gate. It was a wonderful evening and glad that we were able to make holiday memories with our little one. We go often during the day time, but the parks transforms at night into this Christmas wonderland and it’s something we try not to miss every year. Our passes are now blocked for the rest of the month, but the holiday decorations stay up until the first week in January, so we’re hoping to enjoy the decorations one last time in January.
