What I learned from my trip to Disneyland. - My Family Travels

I live in East Los Angeles & here there are not really any amusement parks, therefore the public goes out of the city for it. For example this year, my family & I decided to go to Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California for my little sister, Ivonne’s, 5th birthday.

It’s been since I was about her age that we have all gone there together as a family. It was Sunday, August 8th, 2008, that my parents, Isidro & Fausta, my older brother, Miguel, my older sisters, Raquel & Yolanda, Ivonne & myself went. I knew Disneyland is known for its magical world, but up until that day I didn’t really know what it meant.

Personally, I was excited to go because I mean, what kid doesn’t want to go? There, the rides are focused for little kids but my brother, sisters & I really didn’t care because for that one day we felt like if we were ten years younger. We went on mostly all the rides, ate a lot of yummy food, watched many shows, took pictures & along the way I learned something very important that I believe I will carry on for the rest of my life.

Watching the public, mainly adults like my mom & dad, I understood that you are never too old to have the exact fun as a kid. Seeing how they were smiling, laughing with great joy, the connection they had with their youngsters & their social interaction, was unbelievable! They were having so much fun that I bet they forgot they were adults! This definitely changed my perspective of the world around me because now I am not scared of growing up & not being able to have fun. Disneyland truly is a magical world, such an amazing place to be that I did not want the day to end!

Not being scared to grow up is such a huge relief! I love being a kid & to know that there is such place where you can have a bunch of fun like a little kid is mind-calming. It’s as if as soon as you step foot on Disneyland you undergo a magical spell that although doesn’t physically turn you into a kid, it does mentally. My advice is “do not be scared of growing up because the magical world of Disneyland will always be there to make your dreams come true.
