We stayed at the Ramada Maingate almost directly across the road from the entrance to Disneyland. We filmed ourselves walking to the park on morning, and it took us less than two minutes!
We hit the park at about 11am and spent most of the day and well into the night in there.
All I can say is that it really is the happiest place on earth!
After a short break back at the hotel (where we sold our USA car, sniff) we went back over to watch Fantasmic!
