Robert and I had the opportunity to go to California the first week of December.
We used our free Alaskan airmiles and stayed at the Hilton Anaheim for 6 nights.
It was fun to see the decorations and the poinsettia plants!
It was also Disneyland's 60th diamond anniversary.
I especially loved Sleeping Beauty's Castle.
This was December 2. We hurried straight there after dropping off our luggage for an early check in at 11:30 am. It was a hot day, so we had bare feet in sandals. Unfortunately, no selfie sticks were allowed into the park. Robert had his confiscated, but he got it back at the end of the day.
We had a reviving cup of hot tea and a cookie at the Jolly Holiday Restaurant once we entered the park and I snapped a few photos of the poinsettia plants. We got up at 3 am on this day, in order to leave the house by taxi at 3:30 am. Our flight left at 6 am.
It was worth it all!
