We’ve been following Ryan’s epic honeymoon for weeks. Now, with his Disneyland visit all done, next up is Disney California Adventure.

These photos were taken before the new Cars Land and Buena Vista Street opened at California Adventure. But coming from half a world away (Australia), we were still happy to be there.

Even Paradise Park, for the simple fact that it is connected with WoC, was an exciting new destination at DCA for those of us who manage a once a year trip to Anaheim.

I’m particularly looking forward to seeing this statue later this year.

And finally…

Just as our anticipation for our first time viewing of World of Color built and built (for over a year), so too will your expectation of the photos have to be, as I simply couldn’t fit them all in one update! So, that means that there’s still more to come.
