This video shows the start of our family vacation at Disneyland/SoCal! It shows our departure from home, the road trip down south, and then our arrival to the Hilton hotel in Anaheim, CA. It was our first evening here.
By the next morning of Thursday, August 8, 2013, we went to Disneyland...Day 1! We stayed around the Fantasyland much of the time. We rode the Disneyland Railroad train to get to the area. We watched Mickey and the Magical Map, rode the it's a small world ride, went to the Storybook Land, rode Peter Pan, Pinocchio and then ate lunch around the Village Haus restaurant. We then left the park to check-in to our 2nd hotel; the Castle Inn & Suites.
After resting a bit at the hotel, we went back to Disneyland and went to ride the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Then we went to ride Indiana Jones. Then we climbed up Tarzan's Treehouse and then waited a bit along the Rivers of America for our dinner time at the Blue Bayou. There, we met up with my sis and Richie. It was my first time eating there. We were eating inside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride!
Coming night time, we watched the Magical fireworks spectacular along Main Street, U.S.A. It was truly a magical sight. After that, we quickly went to see the Fantasmic show at the Rivers of America (not shown in video). Once that show was over, we left the park. It was the end of our first day here around the Disneyland Resort...
