My Birthday at Disneyland

On April 6th, 2016, it was my birthday and I spent the entire day at one of my favorite places on Earth: DISNEYLAND. Why would I do anything else anyways?

Here I am on April 7th, reflecting on the beauty that was yesterday. Disney hangovers are what keeps me going back to the happiest place on Earth. The moment you get home, you fall into a deep sleep. Your feet hurt and you can't keep your eyes open. But when you wake up hours later, you can't help but ask yourself, "When will I go to Disneyland next? I miss it already."

Because I've been to Disneyland so much within the past year and most of the times I was in a costume working, I was afraid that the magic would fade and I would no longer have an interest in going.

So far, it hasn't been like that. It's all about going when you really want to, and taking in each and every moment. Usually, when people plan trips to a Disney park, they spend most of their time stressing out and planning instead of actually having fun. "OKAY. We need to get two fastpasses within the next 30 minutes. You go to Cars Land and I'll go to Tomorrowland. And we need to meet Goofy and Pluto at 1:30, so we need to wait in line and time it PERFECTLY, got it? Right after that, we have reservations at the Blue Bayou so we need to hurry. OH WAIT! HOW ARE WE GONNA GET SEATS FOR PAINT THE NIGHT?" By the end of the day, you start wondering if you even made the most of your time.

Every single time I go to Disneyland, I just go with the flow and play it all by ear. I don't force myself to go on as many rides as possible, I don't wait around in line and I don't sit around for hours just to 'get a good spot.' It's all about just taking it in, and when you see something you like, do it. There's really no need to stress. Of course you should have a general idea of what you want to do at the park, but everyday is unpredictable.

I just aimlessly walk around with a smile on my face: eating what I want, running to rides when I see the line is short, observing all that's around me. Disney changes so often, so going to the park never really gets old. And that's what I did yesterday on my birthday. I didn't take enough pictures to accurately describe the day because I was too busy enjoying it, but heres some pictures anyways!

Breakfast buffet at Plaza Inn AKA best breakfast of my life.

For some odd reason beyond my control, I've always hated the color orange. But these orange flowers captured my heart. I think I like orange now, it reminds me of these flowers, orange juice and halloween.

We met Judy & Nick from Zootopia which was a dream come trueeeeee! Andrew was in the middle of talking to the photographer, just ignore that. ^_^

Another shot of breakfast because it deserves that kind of love.

Cute mint julep, cute boy, cute shirt.

I spend too much time observing the animals at D-LAND. This turtle and these baby ducks, though.

Starbucks inside of Disneyland tastes better than every other Starbucks in the world.

I couldn't get over how gorgeous this gift card was. I don't think I'll ever be able to throw it out. 

Believe it or not, I never actually walked inside the Animation Academy. Andrew and I walked into it by accident and spent so much time just watching songs & video clips from our favorite Disney films, there were screens all around us, it was SO EPIC. (Also, we were eating Pizza popcorn from Cozy Cones.)
