Visit Orange County: Springtime at Disneyland Resort

Our most recent visit to Disneyland Resort a few weeks ago was the second time I visited during Hawaii's spring break.

Fortunately, our spring break is before when most of California's schools get out for spring break, which meant short lines and smaller crowds.

It was also unseasonably hot (90+ degrees!), and we ended up buying one of those fan sprays to help my boys cool down.

One of the days we were there was St. Patrick's Day, and I loved the green Mickey Mouse balloons!

Despite being annual passholders and having visited Disney numerous times, there were still some rides and attractions we had yet to experience.  I even rode Mad Tea Party for the first time!  My husband usually goes with the kids on this ride since I can't deal with spinning rides and their effects on me, but I decided to just try it.  Yes, I did get a bit nauseous, but the look on my son's face as he spun the tea cup around was priceless.

Some of the attractions we went on for the first time were the Red Car Trolley, Mark Twain River Boat, and the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.

We also rode our favorites such as Autopia, Space Mountain, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, King Triton's Carousel, and "it's a small world "(which was undergoing a bit of construction).

We also watched the Pixar Play Parade.  We watched it before, but it was the first time we watched it since Monsters University was released, and we enjoyed the addition of the characters from that movie.

Frozen Fun is a new feature since our last visit in October, and one experience is Olaf's Snow Fest. Here kids can play in "snow" and sled, as well as take photos with Olaf!

My favorite part of any visit to Disneyland is the fireworks show.  The current show, Fantasy in the Sky," is just 5 minutes long, but still just as magical as the longer shows.

It was another magical visit to Disneyland Resort, and our entire family can't wait to go back!

Another magical Disney vacation!
