We took our two youngest children for a surprise trip to Disneyland Resort last week. Thought I would do a quick trip report. Our family was Myself, DH, DS7 (paraplegic, wheelchair) and DD4 (Severe Hearing Loss, Cxochlear Implant and mild CP). We drove from Texas, arrived Tuesday,stayed at Disneyland Hotel, and spent two days at the parks before driving home on Friday. The weather was wonderful and the crowds were non existent! We must have just beat the Thanksgiving crowds, which is what we were hoping for! The Christmas decorations were beautiful. We were just so pleased with how well our children were treated by all the cast members. We ate at the Plaza on Wednesday for the character breakfast. The lead character handler was deaf and spotted our DD's Cochlear Implant, and she was so nice to DD and brought her a first visit pin and made sure all the characters came by to see her and knew she was hearing impaired. It was a wonderful experience for her! We really enjoyed staying at the Disneyland Hotel. Our room was in the Wonder Tower, on the 10th floor and we could see most of the fireworks from our room (view was only slightly blocked by the Dreams tower). It looked to us like the Dreams tower was either completely closed or all but one end was closed for renovations. There was a blue wall around 3/4 of the building. All in all, it was a great trip. Our DS7 said it best on Friday when he gave us a sad little face and said "Can't we just STAY?" LOL - I felt the same way! We had not been to Disneyland since our older children were little, and were so pleasantly surprised how much the resort had to offer. It does have its own special Magic!
