Dream Destination 1: Disneyland California

“Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.”  Walt Disney

If you haven’t seen already over on my Twitter, I’m hosting my very first Twitter chat tonight about budget holidays! We’ll be tweeting over on the hashtag ‘#budgettravelhour’ from 9-10pm and talking about booking our dream trips. To celebrate tonight’s theme, I thought I’d talk about one of my dream destinations: Disneyland California.

My parents went to Disneyland before I was born with my older sister Steph and they’ve always spoken about how there’s no Disney park like the original. I’ve always dreamed of visiting the park where it all began and after looking through Dad’s photos over the years, it has to be on my travel bucket list. There’s something so beautiful and magic about the castle.
Disneyland still has some of the iconic rides from when the park first opened 61 years ago: Dumbo, Snow White, the Mad Tea Party to name a few. I’d love to see the attractions as Walt first envisioned them.

Despite visiting the USA quite a few times, I’ve never ventured over to the West Coast. It’d be amazing to fly to LA and then visit Disneyland in Anaheim and the rest of California. One thing I struggle to imagine with Disneyland is that Walt didn’t buy up the whole area of land nearby, so Disneyland is in a suburban area. In many ways this is a good thing though because it means affordable hotels are near to the parks and Disneyland can be visited on a much cheaper budget. Combine this with flight sales from Virgin Atlantic or British Airways and Disneyland can be visited on a much smaller budget than you’d think.
Thank you for reading my blog today.
I hope you can join us for tonight’s Twitter chat!
Love Kat
