My 5 Favorite Things About Disneyland

It was difficult to pick only five.

There are so many reasons to love The Happiest Place on Earth. Here's why I always want to go back, and never want to leave once I get there.

1. "Welcome back, Princess!"

It's honestly heartbreaking when you aren't greeted in this way upon your first entry into the park.

2. The music

Before you've even made your way through security, the music that defines Disney is dancing through your ears. You'll hum it for at least a week after your visit and sing along to it every hour of every day inside the park.

3. The night parades/fireworks

The dancers, the floats, the lights, the music pounding in your chest, sitting on the sidewalk on Main Street for sometimes over an hour to get the perfect spot. It's the perfect way to end any day spent at Disney.

The fireworks before, or after, the parade are the best. Especially if you get a perfect spot right in the middle of Main Street (and no one decides to put their children on their shoulders).

4. The rides

The beginning ascent on Hyperspace Mountain

I never sing anything louder than the "Star Wars Main Title" at the beginning of the ride. I might scream "IT'S A TRAP" a little louder.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F27%2F636237513901840634-1020268465_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=157&h=db598011ab96a4f955923b5ad37be9c927cfa5c4d9edf07630b8d8550fc8bd58&size=980x&c=4201176179 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F27%252F636237513901840634-1020268465_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D157%26h%3Ddb598011ab96a4f955923b5ad37be9c927cfa5c4d9edf07630b8d8550fc8bd58%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4201176179%22%7D" expand=1]

The smell of the water on Pirates

There's nothing like it. It's oddly soothing and the faux night-sky always puts me at peace no matter how chaotic the day may have been.

The climb to the top of the hill on Thunder Mountain Railroad

Waving at the rattlesnakes, vultures, turtles, and glancing over to see the progress on Star Wars Land is always fantastic. "Shooting" the goat (with finger guns only of course) tops it all off.

The journey through the line to Indiana Jones

Even though the line can sometimes stretch for hours, the fun secrets hidden along the way and the cave-like atmosphere almost makes it worth it. Also, did I mention the Snake?


5. Every smile,

Laugh

and Scream

From the minute you step foot onto Disney property, you're sure to have a magical time.

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!
