Here's more colorful picture from the awesome fun Disneyland, and here's how I spend my day at Disneyland.
I would plan my day ahead if I want to visit Disneyland, because I don't want to stuck at traffic, we usually leave about 10 or 11am. We get 2 backpacks, one to put in the car with extra water, one to bring inside the park with a bottle of water. Depends on the weather I would bring extra cloth or hat; in the hot summer day, we bring hat and in the night or cold days, we bring jacket and scarf. Of course we have to bring cash and credit card and our annual pass. I also bring a wallet full of quarter and new pennies for my penny collection. When we get to the parking lot, we show our pass to get in free to park; then follow the orange cones or the car infront of us to find a place to park. Get our backpack and get down to the first level and get on the tram.
Get into the park show our passes and check the backpacks. There's restroom and ATM and lockers outside the entrance. Get the map and figure out where we want to eat, usually we get in around lunch time. We would pick a restaurant and go to that part of the park. Get in line, get our food, show our passes to save money. Always remember to show your passes to save money, it doesn't work on the food cart outdoors.
We usually just go there to eat and shop, when we have extra time or have enough energy, we find a ride to go on. But we always bring our cameras to take pictures. We almost visit all the restaurants and shops inside the park but everytime we go there, there's always something new to see and something fun to do. I love window shopping and actual shopping and people watching. I know all the new product it come out because everytime I go there, I would notice which product is new or old.
I get to take different kinds of picture everytime I go there. And it also depends on the cameras I brought. The better one is of course more heavy and I have a lighter one and cell phone too. Just recently I brought a autograph and photo album book, so I'll be starting to take picture with the characters and get their autograph too. The thing I don't like is that they don't allow those small wheel backpack/suitcase for safety reason, or else I would use that to carry my stuff around. We also brought different size sandwich bag and supermarket plastic bags. What's those for? For bringing the left over food of course. I have seem a lot of people left their food on the plate and it's usually more than half and they wouldn't carry it with them or finish it. It's a waste of money consider Disneyland food is quite expensive.
Before we leave, we can go to the big store at main street to shop or bring some snack home. We usually leave before 5-6pm if we go in the morning. Sometimes during the hot summer days, we go after 7-8pm and stay till they closed. All the shops at main street will remain open for one more hour after the park closed. So we sat at the main street, shopping and get some snack or just watching people leaving. We always have a fun day at Disneyland, well, except when I can't buy the stuff I want.
