D is for Disney Land!

Disney Land, Anaheim,California

It was a dream to go to Disney World growing up, as is with every child who watches Disney! The mesmerizing world of everything princesses and pink ( for me!) I was this young naive thing who believed in 'Happily Ever After' stories that Disney told me and the 'Sleeping Beauty' Castle in CA absolutely epitomized the belief.

The dream took a long time coming. I was 23 years when I first went to the place. But for a middle class Indian girl , even at 23, it was wonderful. I was still into the love stories , I hadn't been through a heartbreak yet and so the Prince Charming bubble was very well intact.

But yes that was years ago. I have a very few pictures of the time and it wasnt the age of Instagram and selfies. We were more into experiencing real-time rather than sharing pictures online. :D

My favorite memory was in the Haunted Mansion ( or was it the house?) . To say I was scared, is undermining the whole situation. There was this mummy guy ( or girl!?!) who was at the end , nearly when I could see the exit. I was sort of looking at the mummy from  a distance and had made up my mind that it was a statue. So as I walked past and the thing moved, I almost peed in my pants. The Mummy guy literally chased me out of the door and when I came out , I was on my four limbs, crawling out scared. He/She was laughing at that point. Well! Even that scared me.

Here are a few pictures from the place.

This is my entry to the #AtoZChallenge 2014. I am having loads of fun reminiscing about my favorite places in the world (among-st the very few that I have visited!) . If you want to check out the whole list I will cover through the month, check out my theme post.


  1. Beautiful! I absolutely love that you shared your own photos. I've never been to Disney land myself but would so love to! Thanks for sharing your experience of it x

  2. My family always goes to Disneyland, and I always skip. Too much work and noise and sun for me :)

  4. Awe great post. Love disneyland and i hope you live happily ever after.. Happy a to z

  5. I've never been to Disney land but I did go to one of those haunted things with two friends. When a mummy came at us we screamed so crazily that they stopped the whole thing, the lights came on and we were escorted right out! Sounds hilarious in retrospect. But Disney land is certainly a dream destination.

  6. Oh my they do like to scare people when they get the chance. I went to Disney Land in Florida and really liked it. Now there would be so much more to see.


Key down what you feel , good or bad :) I love reading it
