I opted for 4 one park per day tickets figuring we would do two days at Disneyland and two days at California Adventure. In my mind we would do Disneyland first for two days and then California Adventure for two days. Following the kids' lead though, we went to Disneyland on Monday and then California Adventure on Tuesday. We took Wednesday off from theme parks and then went back to Disneyland on Thursday and Friday. In the end we felt like we had seen all that we wanted to see in California Adventure in one day. Disneyland has more hidden things to explore. Even on Friday, our third day in the park, we were still riding new rides! The kids had fun at both parks...they were so overwhelmed the first day. The park was packed that day and there was so much to see! We watched the parade and took in the show Mickey's Magical Map. They were both fantastic...Disney parades are one of my favorite things!
There are sooooo many pictures, it's hard to choose just a few to share, but I tried...
