My mom and I took advantage of my school's fortunate 5-day weekend by going to The Happiest Place on Earth. As usual, Disneyland was the perfect escape from the stresses that have presented themselves these past few weeks. I enjoyed a Monte Cristo sandwich and a Mint Julep at Cafe Orleans, where Mardi Gras festivities and decorations were in full swing, entered new worlds - including small ones - on countless rides, and ended fun-filled days with firework shows that can only be described as pure magic. Every time I visit the park, I create new memories that I carry to my next visits. Whether it's who you go with, the food you eat, the rides you experience, or the firework spectaculars, the memories made at Disneyland are ones that can't be had anywhere else.
