Sooo, last December, my high school’s marching band went on their annual trip to Anaheim to perform in the Disneyland Christmas Parade~ That means +13 hours at the happiest place on Earth at the happiest time of the year! The hype was real.
After Tomorrowland, we had to march, and Disneyland didn’t allow us to bring cameras/phones backstage… (Backstage was pretty magical, by the way.) The band dedicated 4 hours out of our day to our Christmas Parade experience. 15 minutes of those 4 hours were actually marching and playing. The rest was for dressing out, waiting, and walking literally every street backstage to get around. Gotta do what we do best.
As the end of our time was approaching, Rhenocorn and I sat down to attempt to watch the Disney show Fantasmic around 8:30. People had already been waiting to watch 3 hours before so it was hard to get a good seat. But later, this nice, old man came up to my friend and I and asked if we were around here and if we’ve ever seen the show. As we said ‘no,’ this guy told us to follow him. He then lead us to the best front seats for the show and let us sit there to watch Fantasmic. It was so great and the show was even better. Props to him (he’s a retired Disney member called Buddy) for making our day 100x more better!That’s a cool picture of me with him. And after the Fantasmic show, there was an awesome fireworks ceremony~ It was a really amazing way to end the day…
So yup, Disneyland was really, really fun and awesome even though we didn’t get to do all the things we wanted to, like buying Tsum Tsums and eating all the festive food. Really can’t wait until next year, though! And it you have any suggestions for next year, please tell me!
