Life is getting back to normal! We went on a vacation!! Can your believe it? There is life after the shutdown-thank goodness!
I cannot even begin to tell you how free and relaxed we all felt jumping in the car and driving down to Anaheim to go to Disneyland. We walked into our hotel without masks, and freely went into restaurants and businesses without our masks. We felt protected from our vaccines, and life in Anaheim looked almost normal! The only hint that it was the end of a pandemic was seeing employees at restaurants, Disneyland, and the hotel wearing masks. Other than that, the crowds are back, the lines are long, and Disneyland appears business-as-usual!
The evening of the day we drove down to Anaheim we walked over to Downtown Disney for dinner at Catel Restaurant. The food was delicious, and the vibe was fun. Ears on! It’s Disney!
Despite the fact that I packed my old silver ears, I felt the need to splurge on a new pair. This periwinkle pair of ears offered a fun bow and a beautiful color. I was sold! My middle child bought new ears too. Sometimes you just need a refresh!
Although I packed my small, convertible handbag, I ended up wearing this striped cross body bag to the parks. It holds more items then my smaller bag, and added some spice to my overall look.
In addition to dinner, we walked around, and window shopped in Downtown Disney. We also gawked at the amazing figures inside the Lego store. The details are incredible! It was a great way to kick off our vacation!
Medieval Times dinner and show
If you are a Real Housewives fan like me, then you remember seeing Medieval Times on Dallas. It looked like a lot of fun, so when I found out there was one close to Disneyland, I knew we had to go. My kids were excited too!
This was such a fun night! We went to the show on our second day in Anaheim. Instead of Disneyland, we enjoyed the water park at our hotel, and then went to Medieval Times for dinner. It was a great choice!
This is a really organized event, and they are amazing at making it historically accurate. Each group or party is sat together, and the food is served as a feast. There is a lot of food! You are given a giant chicken leg, half a potato, half a corn cob, soup, and dessert. There is also a vegetarian option, which is what I ate since I am on a diet from my doctor. The food was yummy, and my kids not only ate it, they enjoyed it! Love that!
There are six royal houses and a Queen; who we are all guests of at the venue. We got lucky, and ended up being in the green royal house. Our Knight was amazing, and did really well in the tournament. If you are visiting Disneyland, I highly recommend taking an evening to attend Medieval Times, you will love it! Also, be sure to grab VIP tickets. It’s worth it.

Our third day in Anaheim, we went to Disneyland! It was SO MUCH FUN! The morning crowds were low, so we were able to hit a lot of rides right away. As the day wore on, the crowds were appeared, and the lines were 30-60 minutes long.
We had lunch reservations at Cafe Orleans. They do not have Vegan options, so it was a little bit difficult for me to stick to my doctor’s diet. Keep this in mind if you have dietary restrictions. Otherwise, the food was delicious!
I tried really hard to get into the new Star Wars rides, but we were unable to. The crowds were too large, and the virtual queue was filled in under a second. My son was disappointed, but there wasn’t anything I could do. Hopefully in a year or two it will be easier to get on the Star Wars rides.
Despite not getting to check out the new Star Wars rides, we were able to get on almost all our favorite rides, and have a blast. Disneyland is always fun!
Disney California Adventure Park

Disney California Adventure Park is my favorite of the two parks. This was very crowded too. The line for the Cars ride was 90 minutes long when the park opened, so we never made it on that ride. Despite the crowds, I was able to get in the virtual queue for the new Spiderman ride. The queue was six hours long, and when we arrived to stand in the physical line, we waited about 90 minutes to get inside the ride. The ride itself was SO MUCH FUN! Hopefully the lines will shorten as time goes on. It’s a really fun ride, and I want to be able to go again next time we go to Disneyland!
We enjoyed lunch at Wine Country Trattoria which has a large menu, and plenty of healthy items; as well as vegetarian and vegan. The food was delicious, we will definitely return!
All in all, it was an amazing vacation! It was so nice to finally be able to travel and feel safe. We loved the feeling of normalcy; even though that included long lines at Disneyland! haha
I can’t wait to plan more vacations this year! Three cheers to going back to a normal life!
Also, do you notice my clothing is a little baggy? The diet my doctor gave me is working, and I am down twenty pounds now! I have ten more pounds to go, and then I will buy new clothing in my new size. Please excuse the baggy looks. Thank you for your support!
Thanks for stopping by!
