Disneyland Spring break trip recap

Sorry, this post is a little late today. Get ready for a picture overload! I took way more than this, but here's the recap from our Disneyland trip!

We told the kids that we were going to the beach. We drove the first night down to St George and spent a night with my cousin so that we could break the trip up and let the kids sleep good that night.


We stopped at the St George temple for a few minutes.


Then we had pizza and went to the park. On the way home from the park V kept stuffing random things in his pockets. Rocks, grass, dirt... and by the time we were walking back his pants were so heavy he had to hold them up.


In the morning we left for California. We made a stop to let the kids stretch their legs at the Seven Magic Mountains.


Then we got back in the Truck and showed them this video to let them know where we were really going. I can't upload it here, but if you want to see it go to my Adventures highlights on Instagram. Trust me, you wanna see it. It's so cute


They were so excited! Especially J, she's wanted this her whole life!


We drove the rest of the way and as soon as we checked into our hotel, we found a nearby beach to spend a few hours while we waited for the rest of our group to get there and to spend some time before bedtime.







The next morning we went to Disneyland!





The kids all did awesome waiting in lines.


We played hard all day long and stayed around for the fireworks show that night before heading back to the hotel for the night.


Day 2 was our beach day. We took lunch with us and beach hopped for the day.



Living near the mountains I forget how much I love being at the beach. It was so pretty and so fun!




The kids looked at cool shells




Built sand castles




Played in the sand






and then collected shells at a beach you're allowed to take them home with you.




After this day I really wished we had come a day earlier to be able to have one more beach day.





Day 3 was California Adventure. We were so excited to have V go one the Cars ride because he is really into that right now. So we got fast passes first thing.

Then we did a lot of other rides while we waited for our fast pass to come up.





If you have been to California Adventure but haven't done the Incredicoaster yet, it's worth it! My sister, mom and I jumped in the single rider line (after the boys had done it earlier) and we only waited 30-ish minutes to get on and it was well worth the wait. If I had time, I would have done it again.


While we were going on the incredacoaster, the guys took the kids to play in this forest area.


We went out for dinner and planned on going back but by the time we had planned to go back to the park every person in our whole group of 22 people were way too tired to go back. So we slept instead.

Day 4 was our last Disney day. We had Magic morning and I'm not sure if it was that or if it was the cooler temps, but we walked on to most of our rides that day.


We all got to go on Splash Mountain


And Space Mountain



Thunder Mountain


We at more dole whips and they were every bit as good as people told me they would be.




We went to the parade


Then we went to dinner and I had the most delicious hamburger from Umami Burger. It's pricey for a burger but it was amazing.


Then we went back to the park for our last hoorah.  I was so not ready to leave!




We are glad to be home but I am not too excited about getting into a regular life routine.  This always happens to me when the kids have a break from school, especially coming off of a trip like this.


Have you had spring break yet?
