Yosemite National Park

Visiting Disneyland with a One-Year-Old

Fall is my favorite time to visit Disneyland because the weather is still warm in California, and it’s not too hot like the summer months.  I especially love visiting Disneyland and California Adventure in October because of the Halloween themed decorations.  (It’s one of my favorite holidays.)  My family loves coming to Disneyland, and we’ve […]
