The other week, I had lunch at Carthay Circle in Disney’s California Adventure. This is my favorite time of year to visit the parks– right after Halloween once all the holiday decorations are up. Nothing gets me more into the holiday spirit. I may be nearing 30, but I suddenly turn into a child whenever I enter the park. Seeing all the decor, all the smiles and happiness around me, and all the friends and families together– brings back childhood memories full of wonder and fascination for life.
