A Solo Trip: It’s the Spirit of the Season at the Disneyland Resort! December 1-7, 2017! Introduction Hello everyone and welcome to my next trip report! This trip will be a very special one for me. I am returning to my “hometown” area of Southern California where I will be spending several days at Disneyland, as well as, adventuring to other areas of Southern California. My Disneyland days wills consist of 4 1/2 days at the parks where I will try and experience as much of the Christmas activities as I possibly can. The reason why I booked for this particular time of the year was I wanted to witness the Disneyland Candlelight Processional. I am really excited about this trip!

A LITTLE ABOUT ME… My name is Zach, and I grew up 20 minutes away from the Happiest Place On Earth (Disneyland) before choosing to go to school in Kansas. I still wonder why I left Disneyland for a school in a colder climate? So, Disneyland is where my love for Disney began at a very young age. We would go to Disneyland about 2 times a week for most of my life. I really like music (my Disboards name might answer that), and I actually got my degree in Music Education. I play several instruments (saxophone and piano), and I also sing. For this reason, I really like seeing shows more than riding attractions while at Disney Theme Parks. Even if I like shows more than attractions, I will still find myself going on rides. Favorite Disney Theme Parks: Disneyland, Disney's Animal Kingdom (WDW). Favorite Disney Theme Park Show: Festival of the Lion King. Favorite Disney Parade: Main Street Electrical Parade. Favorite Disney Theme Park Nighttime Show: Illuminations. Favorite Disney Theme Park Attractions: Big Thunder Railroad, Expedition Everest, and Flight of Passage. Favorite Disney Theme Park Entertainment: Voices of Liberty! Favorite Disney Movies: Lion King and Toy Story (1, 2, and 3). Favorite Disney Songs: Anything from the Lion King, A Whole New World (Aladdin), Santa Fe (Newsies - Broadway version), Seize the Day (Newsies), Go the Distance (Hercules), You've Got A Friend In Me (Toy Story), and many more.

MORE ABOUT THIS TRIP: Like I mentioned above, I am really excited to experience all of the Christmas offerings at the Disneyland Resort. Christmas time is my favorite time of the year to visit any of the Disney Parks, but I always feel like Disneyland celebrates this holiday the best. I will be staying off-property at the Embassy Suites Anaheim South. This is usually my go-to hotel when I am in the area. It’s much cheaper than staying on property, and the transportation from the hotel to the parks is reasonably priced. This hotel also has breakfast. I will be experiencing other parts of Southern California during this trip, but you will have to stay tuned to see where I go. I hope that you enjoy…A Solo Trip: It’s the Spirit of the Season at the Disneyland Resort!
