I did a small search and couldn't find anything helpful. So excuse me if I missed something, but I could use some help!
April 4-6 my family is taking a vacation to Disneyland for my 21st birthday. My birthday was in January but since my brother got a trip to Vegas for his 21st, my family asked where I would like to go and of course, I chose DLR.
We will be in the park only on Saturday the 5th. It's been awhile since I've been on a weekend and especially on a potentially busy weekend. And now I'm supposed to show my family a good time.
Here's the stats on my family:
Mom and dad - my dad is 47 and my mom is 50, haven't been to Disneyland since 1992
Grandma and Grandpa - 60's, haven't been since my great grandparents were alive... so before '98
Aunt and Uncle - 40's, I can't even imagine how long it's been for them.
Brother - 25, hasn't been since his high school grad night
Boy solo and myself - 22, 21, we go a few times a year
So we are by no means a family with children (I am the baby after all) but I want to show my family a good time. I go a handful of times a year so they expect me to show them something. I want to show them the things they remember, but introduce them to new things like Buzz, California Adventure as a whole, Toon Town, etc. It's safe to say the whole family besides the grandparents will be into the thrill rides, but everyone will want to ride the classics. So much and only one potentially busy Saturday!
The only definite plan we have is Blue Bayou at 12:45 YUM!
Any suggestions? I don't want anyone getting cranky (although I'd say we're mostly a happy family) and make sure everyone has fun. Also, how is early entry obtained? Do you have to buy a vacation package or how does it work? I think that could really benefit us but we're not getting a package, just tickets, we got our hotel on our own.
Since the boy and I have AP's we will probably visit for another half day or whatever so this trip isn't really about us, it's about the family. I'm so determined to show them a good time. I haven't really done anything that amazing for them ever since I grew out of my angsty teenager stage and realized they are my one and only family.
Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks so much for reading and sorry if this was a waste of board space.
