Disclosure: I was provided an all-expense paid trip to the #TomorrowlandEvent in Los Angeles California in order to facilitate this post; however all opinions and love for Disneyland and Tomorrowland expressed are my own.
TOMORROWLAND opens in theaters TOMORROW!!! May 22nd! Make sure to take your family!!
My 1st Disneyland Experience…
If you EVER get the chance to go to Disneyland, just DO it. Earlier this month, I experienced many firsts in my life. As a grown woman, I made my first trip to Disneyland. You’re never too old for Disney magic! It was my first time to California…my first time to the Chinese Theater, my first time to Tomorrowland, just lots and lots of firsts!
Our Disneyland trip was soo. muchh. funnnn. My anticipation and excitement were no different than a 4 year old’s when I walked into Disneyland and got my 1st visit to Disneyland pin! I was proud to wear that pin everywhere!! Entering the park, I was having heart palpitations. There’s just so much to see and I was trying to gulp it all in, in one sweep. Which is impossible, but I tried.
The Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse statue encircled in those beautiful flowers, seeing the castle, listening to the quartet. I was a dawdler…I have to say. I was forever more trying to keep up with my friends. I wanted to stop every 2 seconds to look and take pictures. I think I heard, “Where’s Jenni?” 52 million times…and I’d say, “I’m here…I’m coming!” Whoops!
The Wimpy Rider…
So, let’s talk rides for a minute. I gladly opted out of the scary rides like Space Mountain and the Tower of Terror. Yeah, umm…no. Those aren’t for me. I can totally live vicariously through the other girls who were brave enough to go ride them. I stuck with the more laid back rides. My favorite was the Indiana Jones Adventure! Although, my eyes were closed through 80-90% of it. I would have gone on that one over and over!
It’s a Small World ride was soooo fun. It’s the classic boat ride of Disney, and I just loved it. It was relaxing and beautiful. All of the detail that they put into this ride is nothing short of amazing. I can’t even begin to imagine the time spent creating everything you see inside this ride.
We went into Radiator Springs and I could not stop taking photos! Cars is still one of our family’s very favorite movies to date. We still watch it pretty often and so seeing all of the things from the movie was pretty awesome. The Radiator Springs Racers ride, man oh mann, was crazy! Another ride I kept my eyes closed through. Again, I’m such a wimp…and the hills really got my belly!
Take me to Tomorrowland…
Since we were there for the Tomorrowland Event, we couldn’t go to Disneyland without going into Tomorrowland! We went through the Tomorrowland Exhibit and saw the Sneak Peek of the movie too. After that, we went to check out Astro Blasters and I got to see my guy, Buzz Lightyear. We also went to Star Tours, which was so cool. My husband would have totally dug that!
The kiddo would have loved this! He’s a huge Toy Story fan and naturally, he would have gone crazy over seeing a giant Buzz Lightyear!!
Take me to Tomorrowland!

The Light Show…
We ended the night with this beautiful Lights Show on the water! It’s a gorgeous display and those few minutes were magical. It’s a nice way to celebrate some of the Disney greats!!
