Disneyland makes it easy to get photos with some of your favorite characters like Tinker Bell in Pixie Hollow.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">If you've never been to Pixie Hollow, it is located between the Matterhorn and the entrance of Tomorrowland.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">The idea is that you magically shrink down to fairy size, and enter a world with grass blades and flowers towering over you.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ToD4ppqAJe0/TXh1G6pv_aI/AAAAAAAABdc/DWjpmNbueEY/s640/tink4.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">When you first enter into this whimsical world, you will be greeted by one of Tinker Bell's friends, Silvermist, Iridessa, Fawn, or Rosetta.</div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="480" src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-cOI02x8mlH0/TXh04pJKBqI/AAAAAAAABdQ/lqjewJnbaqs/s640/tink.jpg" width="640" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">A hug for Tinker Bell.</td></tr></tbody></table><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Then you turn the corner around a mushroom, and Tinker Bell awaits your arrival.&nbsp;</div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="424" src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-ZWkXGLgNpKg/TXh09VgkDeI/AAAAAAAABdU/296gbf4vIsE/s640/tink2.jpg" width="640" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Trying to get Tinker Bell to color.&nbsp;</td></tr></tbody></table><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">The whole area is very cute and nicely done. It's a great place to really interact with a character without other people pushing in for a photo.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">You will have to wait in a long line to meet the fairies, but only a group or two are allowed in at a time, making for a more special moment for you.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Each day Tinker Bell and her friends say goodbye around 5 PM, so make sure to get your visit in before then.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-rvbzq3PJzfA/TXh1Ooj_bkI/AAAAAAAABds/X-FHkOgI2LE/s640/tink5.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">We &nbsp;also like to visit Pixie Hollow at night while the fairies are away because there is a pretty water light show on the pond called Pixie Hollow Enchantment. Once it's dark the show will start up every 15 minutes and last just under 3 minutes.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em;

text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-9kQU9RHfHi4/TXh1jQTgdRI/AAAAAAAABeA/Xn9Gpi3UaFQ/s640/tink11.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

Back then Disney did things a little different. They would have passholder nights, and when they had one for Indiana Jones Adventure I went with my family.&nbsp;</div><div style="margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;">Not only was the party&nbsp;for passholders, but they also had special event merchandise for us to buy that night too.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;">I was a senior in high school, and I remember waiting in line with my parents and sister for the ride. We got to the part where the line splits into two leading up the stairs before you get on the 12 person vehicle, when the ride broke down. Luckily we didn't have to wait too long for it to start back up again.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;">When it was our turn, as we approached the scene where rats start falling on you, our car broke down... or did it? Everyone moaned, and we all thought the ride broke down again, but we soon found out that was part of the ride. Brilliant. As we approached the end with the rolling ball, I screamed and ducked my head. To this day I still feel the need to duck down just in case that ball comes crashing down on me.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;">I remember being blown away by all the little effects throughout the ride, and Indiana Jones Adventure became my favorite ride for a long time. &nbsp;</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="640" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-KKnuMqHikJU/TXB8tQA5SJI/AAAAAAAABak/0-_6cNdF44o/s640/indy14.jpg" width="248" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Before the official opening day, Mark and Brian from KLOS morning radio show had a private party.

When that area closed, I will admit I was a little sad because it brought so much joy to my little guy. He loved running around in the open with other kids, and he loved getting wet. Am I still sad? Nope, not at all. I'm pretty excited for Carsland, so the closure of Bountiful Valley Farms is for a good reason. Once Bountiful Valley Farms closed though, I was on a lookout for something at the park that brought as much joy to him as the water area did. Sure they have Princess Dots Puddle Park in A Bug's Land, but the water over there is more like a drip compared to the water feature that was once in Bountiful Valley Farm.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">When Mickey's Toontown opened I was in High School. Goofy's Playhouse was a bounce house, and I was too old to go inside. I never really got to experience that part of the park, and I remember wanting to go inside and jump up and down really bad.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;">Fast forward to today, I never really paid attention to&nbsp;Goofy's Playhouse because I figured my son wasn't old enough for it. Wrong.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-B9yaGaYFeMY/TWYsZDrmMHI/AAAAAAAABU4/MXsYBkMBHxc/s1600/gh10.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="442" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-B9yaGaYFeMY/TWYsZDrmMHI/AAAAAAAABU4/MXsYBkMBHxc/s640/gh10.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">In September of last year right after Bountiful Valley Farm closed, I took a closer look and was surprised &nbsp;at what I found. It's basically a themed playground for kids! I parked our stroller, and together the little guy and I explored. The excitement of running around with a bunch of kids was back in his eyes. We found our new spot to play.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="376" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Yj8Av_21-RI/TWY1tXt7OOI/AAAAAAAABVs/QSnjGxUOBlQ/s640/gh22.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Crates are set up all over to create steps to a slide and to act as crawl tunnels.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-h6RsrkusEwI/TWYr-iJmlxI/AAAAAAAABUc/AbrDernZf_A/s640/gh5.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9zpIRdXSyyI/TWYrphJEk3I/AAAAAAAABUM/a4g3wsw35nw/s640/gh.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">There is a giant watermelon and pumpkin to crawl inside.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-QR3JFpHHlrQ/TWYsTV5-8CI/AAAAAAAABU0/iEzoQu2zkug/s640/gh9.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="640" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-PbVV00LYMPc/TWYsOrq_FiI/AAAAAAAABUs/bHGHD0aYvkA/s640/gh8.jpg" width="424" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">More crates to sit on.</td></tr></tbody></table><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Let's go inside.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-6BOCyX-tt7U/TWYsJaK3lYI/AAAAAAAABUo/sVB_gGxOTZY/s1600/gh7.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-6BOCyX-tt7U/TWYsJaK3lYI/AAAAAAAABUo/sVB_gGxOTZY/s640/gh7.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;">For those of you who love taking photos of your kids around the park like I do, this is a great place to do it.

You have Alice in Wonderland, Storybook Land Canal Boats, Dumbo, It's a Small World, and Peter Pan Flight just to name the few rides that Disney suggest for little ones. &nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;">My son has two favorites here that we must always go on.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;">The first is King Arthur Carrousel. The best perk for this ride is the wait time, which is usually 5-10 mins long even on busy days. &nbsp;The horses now have easy handles for the kids to hold on to, and you are allowed to stand in-between the horses to hold on to your child, if they are not old enough to hold on without your help.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-l4vTc-PCTXs/TWX1KyxiaTI/AAAAAAAABSM/KEqicB_9y9E/s640/littleguide5.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-jN97TyfS5bY/TWX1P0nmK3I/AAAAAAAABSQ/ENYmZk7x6mw/s640/littleguide4.jpg" width="640" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">New handles to hold on to.</td></tr></tbody></table></div><div style="text-align: center;">Our other must go on ride is Casey Jr. Circus Train.

It is hidden in the back behind Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. During the holidays you can find pumpkin carvers for Halloween and Santa Claus and his reindeer during Christmas. The rest of the year, it's a petting farm. In a gated off section you can walk around and pet the goats, and from a small distance you can visit Pocahontas the Donkey or Maggie the cow. When you are all done, there is a hand washing station available to use on your way out.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-yksEVYmdFBM/TWX3qCZHKlI/AAAAAAAABSo/899DOWYY67s/s640/littleguide10.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-enZTpDZ90gE/TWYMd4yA9xI/AAAAAAAABTE/9SYKpAjz8So/s640/littleguide20.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><b>Critter Country</b></div><div style="text-align: center;">Although Critter Country is closed for refurbishments until next month, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is listed on the guide and is a favorite ride of my son. This is a 4 minute ride in a giant beehive through The Hundred-Acre Woods. &nbsp;My tip for this ride is to wait until later in the day to go on it. The line is always shorter at night, and sometimes you can even walk right on or wait for a short period.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><b>Adventureland</b></div><div style="text-align: center;">The Disneyland Guide to Little Ones suggest the Enchanted Tiki Room (which we haven't tried yet) and the Jungle Cruise.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;">The Jungle Cruise was once a great ride for my little one until recently. Now on certain parts through the ride he gets a little scared, but other times he gets excited to see some of the animals. Use your judgement on how you think your child will react to some of the loud noises, like piranhas attacking the boat.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="286" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-_PD9UYa6i1c/TWX8veJUbPI/AAAAAAAABSs/wUiId4SkW2w/s640/littleguide16.jpg" width="640" /></a></div></div><div style="text-align: center;">If you don't mind climbing a bunch of stairs, and your little one is all about climbing, you might find <a href="http://www.magicaldayswiththemouse.com/2010/07/wordless-wednesday-tarzan-treehouse.html">Tarzan's Treehouse </a>a good spot to explore. It's not listed on the guide, but we always have fun there.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-F_MvPEdsiEQ/TWYA48yufOI/AAAAAAAABSw/D8IH6kMAdpU/s640/littleguide17.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><b>Tomorrowland</b></div><div style="text-align: center;">Without a doubt my son loves the Monorail. If you want to fold up your stroller, you can take it onboard with you. It does make a stop at Downtown Disney, which you can get off at or take a round trip back to the park. If you take a round trip and don't want to bring your stroller onboard, there is a stroller parking area at the entrance of the Monorail.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-XmqMjDxI2Aw/TWYBJfyfwNI/AAAAAAAABS0/PpOQqq7Od2E/s640/littleguide11.jpg" width="640" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Waving to the people below the Monorail.</td></tr></tbody></table></div><div style="text-align: center;">Disney's suggested rides also include Autopia and Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /><b>Main Street U.S.A.</b></div><div style="text-align: center;">And last, our Disneyland trip wouldn't be complete without a grand circle tour through the Grand Canyon and Primeval World of Dinosaurs. Did I mention my son loves trains? Yes we must ride this at least once, but often we ride it a few times around. Not only does it give us a lift to another land, but it's also a great way to take a break from walking around the park. It takes approximately 18-20 mins for a round trip around the park. I can't think of a better way to relax and take in the beauty of the park at the same time.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="#topofpage" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9gBprpGefl4/TWYESwC6DeI/AAAAAAAABS8/bOoiTTIEHIo/s640/littleguide18.jpg" width="640" /></a></div></div><div style="text-align: center;">I hope you enjoyed reading about some of my son's favorite rides.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;">Don't forget to check back tomorrow for a full report on Goofy's Playhouse.<br /><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div style="text-align: center;"><i>* My son is almost two years old.
