En­ter­tain the fam­ily in LA

Travel Bulletin - - USA -

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.
