Clearly, this steams from growing up in Southern California. Which means I also grew up at Disney Land. I couldn't count the number of times I've been to Disney Land. If I had to estimate it would be somewhere around 50? What I love about Disney Land is you can go for a day, and have a blast. Unlike a Disney World trip where you really need a week to experience it.
It's hard to image my life without Disneyland in it. I've been to concerts at Downtown Disney. I've held a season pass (another long and amusing story really). I even took my SAT prep classes at the Disneyland Hotel! So without further adieu here is my life at Disneyland.
Starting it off with Mickey himself. This is me and my best friend Sara. (Best Friend then, and best friend now) If you'll notice she's in almost all of these pictures.
Here we are with Cinderella. And yes, I am the blond. My hair has slowly gotten darker as I've gotten older. For a while I tried to highlight it to keep it that way, but I've slowly given in.

With Snow White. We clearly weren't interested in the camera.
On the old rockets. You can tell my hair has started getting darker in this picture.
I think this was around 9th grade or so?
You can't tell at all, but I promise you we're standing in front of a Christmas tree at the main entrance.
This isn't actually inside the park, but outside at Downtown Disney.
This one isn't quite at Disneyland. Instead its a Tokyo Disney! On our family vacation to Japan last year the only place I insisted we go was Tokyo Disney.
The last time I was at Disneyland. Summer 2006. I'm with one of my friends from college here. And Minnie!
It has been almost 3 years since I've been. Far too long in my opinion. I love the promotion Disney is currently doing where you get in for free on your birthday. If I lived closer, I would definitely spend my birthday at Disneyland. Since that really isn't an option and we will be in California for Christmas and the boy's birthday is December 23. Guess where I've decided he wants to spend his birthday? I can't wait! (Let's hope he feels the same.) And just curious, is there anyone who's actually been to both Disneyland and Disney World? Do you have a favorite?
