A friend of mine rounded up some of the most fabulous California bloggers to ask us “where is our favorite California spot?”
To most of you this will probably come as no surprise (I almost did something else, just to throw you for a loop), but I had to be true to my heart. Our favorite California spot is, of course, Disneyland, The Happiest Place on Earth.
Disneyland has always been such a magical place for me and my husband. Neither one of us have lots of memories going as a child, in fact I think I went a total of 2 times before I became an employee. Instead, our memories begin with working for the Mouse; a combined of about 20 years of service. We met some of our best friends there and ultimately met each other because of those mutual friends (you can read our story here).The best spot in California to visit...click here to find out where!;) @disneylandtoday Click To Tweet
So once we had kids we knew that bringing them to this place would be incredibly special, and it has been. In the past 4.5 years since starting our family we have taken the kids to Disneyland countless times and each time has created memories that we will forever cherish. Here are some of my favorite moments…
Our son at just 3 months old and his first visit to Disneyland.
His love of Mickey Mouse really began after this visit!
A big change since his first visit almost a year later…
Our last trip as a family of 3.
Baby girls first visit to Disneyland at just 3 months old; meeting Minnie and Mrs. Clause.
One of my favorite shots of the 4 of us in front of our home away from home; Sleeping Beauty Castle.
Rosie earned her first pair of ears!;)
Our two favorite mice!
The Halloween season is one of our favorite times of year to go to Disneyland! If you have never gone during this time, you should definitely go!
A visit during Christmas is a tradition for us as well!
No other place I’d rather celebrate my birthday!;)
Our first pair of matching ears.
First time becoming a Jedi Knight.
Love seeing how the kids have grown over the years in the same spot…

We owe a lot to the Big Cheese!;)
This view might be my favorite of all time!

Finally tall enough (40″) to ride all the big rides now!
A family that plays together stays together! I highly suggest wearing matching shoes…makes for some fun pictures!;)
“…and they lived happily ever after.” I think you can see why Disneyland has become our favorite California spot. It truly is such a unique and extraordinary place where dreams really can come true.
Now here is the extra fun part…below is the list of all the other amazing California bloggers who picked their favorite location. Head on over to their blogs to find some new places for exploration!
