california girls- I need advice

Recommended Posts

Long story short . I need advise/tips on a disney vacation!

 

My sister in law was just diagnosed with cancer and she is having her first chemo tratment later this month and we would like to take my nephew away so he is not arround her while sick and that way she and her husband are not worried about him. DH & I have never been so need all the help we can get. Ricardo is 4 and loves Mickey, donnald and goofy so we thought it would be a perfect thing for him.

 

Thank for all your help in advance!

Well, it's been about 4 years since I was at disney in Cali... but it's fun. And the California theme park is right across the street. That one he'd like too!

 

And, I think it's VERY sweet of you to do this!

hi ...what info do you need?

you can do a hopper ticket where you purchase a ticket that gets you into Disneyland and California disney.

you could also go to Downtown disney but thats more restaurants then rides....

 

Let me know what you need and I'll help you out...I might be going there for my b-day...though I don't know...since it is expensive :)

 

oh yeah at the Disneyland hotel you can have breakfast with the characters if you make reservations :)

Knott's berry farm is nearby.

Also Legoland is a great adventure for four year olds (I have 4 year old cousin who lives in SD and his mom takes him about once a month)

Sea World has a children's area that is a blast, the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Wild Animal Park, the beach...so many great kid friendly things in So Cal.

 

How long do you have him for?

I'm sorry to hear about the situation :o( I think Disneyland would be a great time for him. It isn't cheap but you probably know that. If you aren't worried about the money I would also suggest staying at the Disneyland Hotel for the Monorail. It goes straight from the hotel into the park, so there is no driving/walking there. That way if he gets tired or cranky and you need a quick nap, you can just hop on the monorail and you get in and out privlidges so you can always go back. Plus there is the breakfast with characters which the kids love.

 

California Adventure is right there too. A lot of exhibits and more rides. And yes, do Knotts Berry Farm if you can. A bunch of rides and the theme is Peanuts characters. He'll have fun there too. And LegoLand....that place looks cool and it's in Orange County too (pretty sure).

I was going to suggest the same thing.. make sure to call way in advance for reservations. Hans and I took my neice (also 4) to eat lunch with the princesses and it was a hit! She loved it!

Thanks girls.

 

Obvously money is a issue but we are willing to spend. It IS worth it to me. We will have him for 2 weeks. about 10 days in California. WE will be definitely be doing Sea World, disney and maybe leggo land. It is a lot but we will see how it goes.

I would say if possible do Legoland, my cousins tell me its such an amazing place and even the adults have fun. Also I have heard its not too expensive compared to Disney.
