You may have been expecting Alicia's International Food post today. This month she has been featuring Belgium. Well, you will be getting that post in a round about way. You see, her family is at Disneyland currently and she asked me if I would talk about whatever Belgian thing she shares with me from Disneyland! You are not going to believe what she shared! French Fries!
That's right! French Fries though Belgian, are called French fries because in WWI the soldiers who ate them didn’t know what they were called and named them after the language of the people who ate them. So the French in French Fries is actually about the spoken language and not the country France. And, of course French Fries are available in Disneyland!
Disney With Toddlers:
Alicia and her husband Adrian are able to go to Disneyland fairly often. But, they often are going with friends and extended family. On this trip they decided to enjoy some time with their family on their own. It is funny how your Disney experience will change depending on who you are taking and the ages of those people. You may think that going with little ones wouldn't be as much fun for you, as an adult. After all, the thrill rides aren't very doable with little ones who are sometimes afraid of the Carousel. But, over the years, I have been to Disneyland with all ages of children and had a blast every time. You have to understand in advance what your experience is going to be like and plan to enjoy the park through your toddler's eyes.
Alicia has kept us updated on their trip and I am happy to say that they seem to be letting the fun evolve at the kid's pace.
The pace with toddlers will be slower and you may not go on as many attractions, but then again, you may get to enjoy some of the smaller, hidden places that you might not have noticed before. It is a great time to take in the shows that are geared to the little ones, rest when they need rest and eat snacks when they need snacks. (Maybe French Fries?) Watch the joy in their eyes (or sometimes help them get over the fear) as they see the characters! They usually are fascinated from a distance if getting close is more than they can handle. One of my favorite things to do with little ones is to let them dance when the bands play around the park. I've seen this so often and it is always so cute. Here are 3 things to do to help you prepare for a trip with toddlers:
