this week.



This week, I'll be blogging from Disneyland! I'm here in the hotel room, one baby sleeping, one baby on the way to slumber and one baby still at the park with her daddy, aunt and grandpa. We're having a blast and enjoying every minute of the happiest place on earth.

In honor of our week here at Disneyland, we've got some incredible giveaways coming your way.
Comment here telling me your favorite ride (*Disneyworld counts too) and why and earn yourself an extra entry in tomorrow's Tea Collection giveaway!!

Good Luck.

  1. I went to Disneyland pretty much every summer growing up. My favorite ride changed over the years, but one that stands out in my mind is Thunder Mountain. I have so many great memories on that ride!

  2. I've never been to disneyland, but I have been to disneyworld! My favorite is the tea cups..because I am a ginormous ride wimp and that is about as much as I can handle! hehe

  3. I love Splash Mountain, not just for the huge drop at the end, but because there is a surprise one in a pitch dark tunnel before that. So fun!

  4. The Matterhorn. Definitely.

  5. Space Mountain! Because of the wonderful memories of riding it with my big sister when we were little girls and again when we were in our 20's and had just as much fun if not more!

  6. I've never been to Disneyland, but, growing up, I spent many enchanting hours at Disney World. Taking my four-year-old for the first time last Spring brought back many happy memories from my own childhood. Space Mountain always thrilled me as a kid... my cousins and I would stand waiting in line for that ride, excited by all the screams and noise of the ride above. My daughter, being too young for Space Mountain, fell in love with the Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride and the carousel.

  7. My favorite ride will always be Peter Pan ... b/c at 30+ years old I still feel the magic of flying over London and Neverland!

  8. Small World....gets me everytime! I love it.

  9. Thunder Mountain railroad is such a blast, but I really loved Dumbo last time with my two boys. They wanted to ride it over and over and over and I was happy to oblige.

  10. Being an east coaster, I've never been to DisneyLAND, but at Disney World I could ride the Aerosmith Rockin' Roller coaster over and over and over.

  11. I'm crazy about Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. You know how it seems so rickety and risky and I always think I'm going to whack my head on the dinosaur bones. Could be a tie with Space Mountain, where you can't really tell exactly where you are going or in what direction, but you really don't care because hey, it's Disneyland. And I second Catherine: the Rockin ROller Coaster totally rocks.

  12. It has been about 17 years since I was last at Disneyland, but Thunder Mountain railroad was always my fave.

  13. I've only been to Disneyland once, and it was with three little kids so we didn't ride many big rides. I had the most fun with my family on Pirates of the Caribbean.

  18. OK, so I haven't been in years, but my favorite ride I can remember would have to be Splash Mountain!! I loved getting wet, because it was always soooo HOT when we went.

  19. I haven't been since I was 9, but I loved the Haunted House. It makes me think of a road trip to Disneyland and learning how to swim there in the hotel pool!

    ReplyDelete
  20. My kids and I love Small World. There is so much detail on the ride. Plus, I love the boat! Enjoy your trip!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Splash Mountain - so cliche but it so fun when out of nowhere you drop down the falls.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The Tower of Terror (at Epcott, i think??) was the BEST! I love rides that make my stomach drop...well, that was before I had kids. I might have lost my edge by now...:)

    ReplyDelete
  23. The tea cups! I always loved picking out which one I wanted to ride and running for it when the gate opened.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Tower of Terror and Splash Mountain. I'm green with envy, Disney is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Matterhorn because my son loves it so much!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like Space Mountain because it was so cool when it opened and seemed so space age... and now, not so much, but it's still a lot of fun in a kitschy way...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Peter Pan... I love the illlusion of it all. Flying through the stars, looking down at Neverland. It is true magic. too bad it is everyone else's favorite ride, the line is always an hour long.

    ReplyDelete
  28. 100% space mountain all the way. It's fast and accelerating and every time it ends you want to go back for another ride.

    I haven't been there is years, but as a little girl I loved it's a small world.

    ReplyDelete
  44. i can't choose one...so my two favs are Peter Pan, it's just so magical and It's a Small World, b/c I remember riding it for the first time with my son and his sweaty little head resting on my arm and we were all so happy and content!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Pirates of the Caribean was my favorite ride as a child and as an adult I found out my husband and his scout troop got kicked out of the park for getting off in the middle of the ride.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love autopia because my son laughs the whole time he is on it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. oh shoot! It's been years, but I do love the mad tea party - the dizzier I could get, the better. Space mountain and I loved the movie "honey i shrunk the audience" I always wanted to be in the movie (honey i shrunk the kids) I thought it was the coolest!

    ReplyDelete

  62. It's a small world. I LOVED singing along as we went through the ride. And of course, space mountain. Hmm... I think that's what it's called. It's been so long I think I'm in need of a trip!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Going old school and saying Space Mountain.

  64. Last summer we loved the Toy Story ride because it is little kid and adult friendly! ~Holly Georgeson

    ReplyDelete
  65. I've always loved the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean. The musty smell inside each ride reminds me of the first time I ever rode those rides when I was a kid--a great sensory memory. I could ride those rides over and over again and be content.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I LOVE Splash Mountain! Remember our dance team trip Brit?

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm a Florida girl, so my memories are of Disney World. I really liked the Winnie the Pooh ride when we went last year, but I miss Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.
