Entertain the family in LA
There’s no shortage of attractions and experiences to keep the family on their toes when in Los Angeles. The obvious drawcard is Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. It’s been entertaining people of all ages from all corners of the world for more than 70 years and is still labelled the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’. But beyond Disneyland, what are some of the top family destinations to take in?
The world’s newest Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened in April. It’s a scaled down version of what’s on offer at Universal Orlando Resort, with the 3D Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey the stand out thrill ride within Hogwarts Castle. For a tamer option, try the Flight of the Hippogriff coaster which ends as quickly as it begins. If you’ve come this far and want to experience every ride in one day, purchase the Front of Line pass to fast-track queues. Don’t miss Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, The Simpsons Ride and Shrek 4D. For the courageous kids, the 25m drop on Jurassic Park – The Ride river raft adventure won’t disappoint. Okay , admittedly you haven’t ventured far from Disneyland Resort yet, but the Disneyland Character breakfast is a must do for families. Food, glorious food! This isn’t your traditional breakfast buffet. All the usual fare is here, but you’ll also find Blueberry Cobbler, Banana Foster Crepes, Macaroni & Cheese, the stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth Peanut Butter & Jelly Pizza and much more. Food aside, the banter and giggles generated by characters (Goofy, Minnie, Chip & Dale and Pluto) in their interactions with children over the breakfast table is priceless.
