I recently did a search on my Google Photos account and discovered that I have over 8,000 photos taken at the Disneyland Resort! The boys were 5 and The Pea was 7 on their first visit, so we have been going there for 15 years. Gosh, we have had some great times at the Happiest Place on Earth. Once they get older, it gets more and more difficult to organize a trip with the kids. Their schedules are all over the place, it gets more expensive (gosh, teenage boys do eat a lot!), and quite frankly, they'd rather visit with their own friends than their parents!
So when the opportunity arises to go back to the Disneyland Resort with the entire family, you don't think twice, you just take it.
If you ever find yourselves doubting whether all those trips are worth it, they're so young, they won't even remember.... let me stop you righ there. I've got three kids who've made some of their happiest core memories at the Happiest Place On Earth. It's a Small World, Buzz Lightyear Astroblasters, and Dole Whips are a part of their childhood.
And every so often, they get to recapture some of that childhood happiness, no matter how old they are. The smiles on my (not-so-little) kids' faces? Getting to spend a few carefree days with them? Priceless.
