The Disneyland Hotel and GET Travel Review

In 2012, I stayed at the Sheraton Park in Anaheim, not at a Disney hotel.

Well, the dumbo and 10k medals are out now. And dammit, they’re cute. Really cute.

Friday started around 3:00am. No, seriously, it did. Between the time change and just all around eagerness I was up before the crack of dawn silently shuffling around the room waiting for everyone else to wake up.
