California, USA: “A great holiday with some great memories”

It was my husband’s 60th Birthday and the 30th anniversary of when we first met in USA, so to celebrate both occasions we decided on a trip to California, USA. We wanted to restrict it to two weeks so that it would fit in the September school holidays.

We decided on Anaheim due to the theme parks and San Diego because going to the San Diego Zoo was high up on my children’s bucket list.

We stayed at Worldmark Anaheim resort and Wyndham Inn at the Park at San Diego. We only had points to cover one week, but by borrowing on next year’s point we had enough to cover the whole accommodation. September is a good time to go because it is not peak season in USA, however the weather is still warm.

At Anaheim we went to Disneyland for two days and to Universal Studios on one day. The kids loved Disneyland of course. My husband and I really enjoyed Universal Studios, especially the Studio Tour which included a 360-degree 3D show of King Kong versus T-Rex. The special effects show was interesting and the kids loved the animal actors show. The Minions 3D ride was fun and it was so warm that day that the kids walked through the Water Park with their clothes on just to cool down. (Hint: bring swimming costumes for the kids.)

Hello everyone at the MyStory blog!

Since joining the WorldMark South Pacific Club my husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed our holidays discovering numerous parts of Australia and Fiji since 2002. We have recently returned from an amazing (nearly) three-week holiday in Oahu, Hawaii and Anaheim, California. We have both travelled to various overseas countries and agree that this was our favourite holiday to date.

Hawaii spoilt us with amazing vistas and eclectic scenery everywhere we went. California’s Anaheim greeted us with the quintessential introduction to mainland U.S.A., and has left us wanting much, much more! Disneyland has proved to be “The happiest place on earth”, even for a couple that hasn’t been blessed with children. Continue reading
