how to ride like Ella

I believe the perfect age to take a child to Disneyland is around 5 years old.  They can ride all the rides and they understand pretend vs. real.  They can wait in a line better and their legs don’t get as tired from all the walking.  Rilyn did pretty well at Disneyland.  We took her on Splash Mountain and she freaked out on the big drop and said she will never ride it again.  She wanted to go on the Haunted Mansion and again was scared, but just held us tight.  Ella proved to us she couldn’t handle rides that required ‘going in a hole’ as she put it.  (Indoor rides such as most of the Fantasyland rides.)  We tried a couple rides and she just cried and cried.  Here she is on Pirates of the Carribean (yes, big brother told me ‘No flash photography!’ after I took this.)

So then we tried more outdoor friendly rides such as The Jungle Cruise. She would love all the animals, right?
Here she is mesmerized at all the friendly animals.

Uh oh, here comes a hippo!

Apparently, Ella does not care for hippos.  So, for the rest of the ride she rode like this…
