California Vacation Planning

Epic California Vacation!

We’re going beyond the theme parks today as you follow me and my family on one of our annual summer trips! Our trip consisted of a six-day tour on the coastline of California from San Francisco all the way down to Los Angeles, California.

The itinerary I created for my family allowed us to hit some popular spots and also some unknown areas. We had an absolute blast! I am definitely a Cali girl at heart!

This California vacation catered to our family needs. You can take this itinerary and adjust it based on what works for you.

Animal Kingdom Pandora World of Avatar

What You Need to Know for Your Pandora Trip

The world of Pandora immerses you and takes you automatically into a magical journey with the Na’vi people the Disney way.

This land engulfed me as soon as I walk through the gates. The majesty, the beauty, and the harmonious sounds of nature transported me to another place. Now I am not a super fan of the movie AVATAR, but as I sat in the newly discovered land, I was totally blown away.

I no longer felt as if I was in Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom anymore. If that’s what Disney Imagineers we’re going for, then they absolutely nailed it!

Tips for going to Walt Disney World Alone

What are tips for going to a theme park alone?

You have decided to go to a theme park alone.

I want you to know that you’re choosing a great way to travel to the parks. Lots of people may be asking if it’s weird to go to a theme park alone?

Absolutely not!

It’s different for many people, but you should try going solo to a theme park. I love this form of travel, but I don’t expect anyone else to jump on the bandwagon. It’s something you have to get used to and I always want to make sure you’re comfortable with going to a park like Walt Disney World alone.
