Rainy days and Spring Flowers at Disneyland

I remember going to Disneyland from the desert of Tucson as a kid and I couldn’t believe how lush it was in the park. So many beautiful flowers were in bloom in so many colors. I had that same feeling last week during our trip to Disneyland. Spring is finally here and and there’s no better place to see Spring flowers than in Disneyland.

The best area to take in the the beauty of the flowers is in the central plaza near the statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse. Plus the gorgeous Pink Lapacho trees (or Pink Trumpets) are in bloom.

California Adventure has its share of flowers as well.

My family and I were invited to Disneyland to celebrate the rainy days of Spring. It was overcast the day we were there, but we were still able to use the rain ponchos Disney sent us to wear while we rode on Splash Mountain. (Now they’re in the emergency kit in my car. I love practical gifts!)

Rainy days are the best at Disneyland because the wait times for rides are much more reasonable. We were hoping for a downpour so we could ride Star Tours over and over again, but no such luck. It looked like it could rain the morning we were there and the wait time for the Materhorn was about 20 minutes. Once the sun came out, the crowds started pouring into the park. If you get caught in the rain at Disneyland, check out these tips to having fun on a rainy day.

Even so, we had a great time. Disneyland is celebrating its Egg-stravaganza and you can search through Disneyland and California Adventure for Eggs. Here’s one we found, but I won’t tell you where.

Now through March 27th, 2016 visitors can buy an Egg-stravaganza map and find the hidden eggs. When you turn in the map, you get a surprise. We didn’t do that, but we did enjoy looking for eggs and and spring flowers.
