Disneyland was somewhere I'd wanted to visit for a long time, having been to the Florida parks numerous times over the years. I must admit to being slightly disappointed over the scale of the place, but then Florida has obviously had a lot more investment put into it, being more of a central tourist location for the European market. We had a great time anyway - it was Disney after all! The Christmas decorations had just been erected when we visited, always my favourite time of year to go. Mother loved the Nemo submarine ride (in which I had a mild panic attack when I realised you got sealed in a small space and went underwater. Shudder.) and my favourite was good old Pirates of the Caribbean, although I did get a bit excited over standing where Walt Disney stood in those old pictures of the entrance.
