Our First Trip to Disneyland Trip Report
As life-long Walt Disney World fans, our first trip to Disneyland was something special. Walking in Walt’s footsteps was a somewhat surreal experience, finally seeing Sleeping Beauty Castle, and getting to experience many of the storied Disneyland attractions was a real treat. We even enjoyed Disney California Adventure, the park that is much-maligned by locals. Suffice to say, after only a few short days in Disneyland, we were hooked. Read the trip report that made our love for Disneyland blossom, and inspired many more Disneyland trips! A Bricker trip report wouldn’t be complete without poor attempts at humor, lots of eating, and plenty of photos, and this report has all of the above.

Hi Tom! Was revisiting this trip report since it’s one of my favorites, and all of the pictures are showing up as photobucket error messages – if it’s an error on my end/settings please disregard, but the rest of this website is so on-point I wanted to make sure you were aware of a problem.
Unfortunately, it’s a problem that is impacting all of the older trip reports, and would require a lot of effort for me to fix. I’m not sure if I’m going to do that at this point. Sorry. 🙁
Hi, Tom and Sarah,
I was surffing the web and passed by your trip report by chance and I loved it, because I enjoy very much to see people having fun at WDW.
I’ve been at Florida’s WDW such a long time ago (1999), me and my wife Mara, and certainlly many things are different nowadays.
We strongly hope to be back there again some day, but…. while this day hasn’t come yet, we keep on enjoying other people’s trip.
Greetings from Brazil !!!!
Det kÃƒÂ¤ndes lite svÃƒÂ¥rare denna vecka. Just genom att det skulle vara naturligt runda sÃƒÂ¥ var det svÃƒÂ¥rare att finna bra bilder men nu ÃƒÂ¤r de pÃƒÂ¥ plats. 🙂
