Camping in Mickey’s Backyard

A thought for today:


I would like to stop at my happy place before taking off to see America…oh come on…if you know me, you know this was coming.  If you don’t know me, just play along, get to know me a bit better and enjoy!

I have been to Disneyland 100 times. Ok – really closer to 60.  My first visit to the park was in 1962.  I was four years old.  A lot has changed since then.  Some good, some bad and some just different. I even love what I consider to be bad! But really…how bad can it be if it’s at the happiest place on earth?


This guy isn’t there anymore as well as Rocket/Flight to the Moon in the background. I always thought this was Captain Satellite, but it’s not.  In case you don’t remember what this ride looked like I found (and borrowed) these pics:



Isn’t it amazing how far simulated rides have come since 1962? This was considered the first one ever designed, although the screens took care of the sensations.  There was even a screen on the floor to show you where you had been.

Anyway…back to the original point of this post! Sorry – I get distracted at Disneyland. Things haven’t changed since the first time I walked down Main Street and walked into a garbage can.

We have always stayed at a Neighborhood Hotel on Harbor Boulevard or Katella Avenue.  We prefer walking into the park rather than dealing with parking. Sometimes it’s actually faster and closer to the main gate depending on where the motel is.  I have known about the Anaheim RV Park for years, but never had an RV.  I’d like to check it out. If you would like to learn more about it too, click on the link below to their website:



The amenities include full hook-ups (20, 30 or 50 amp electricity) including water and sewer connections. The park also provides premium sites accommodating 65 feet rigs. Hot showers and handicap accessible restrooms are located throughout the campground, as well as laundry facilities. There are also a swimming pool, spa, free high speed wi-fi and cable TV service. You can even bring your furry kids – there are even dog walk areas.


Click on the facilities map to use the push pin feature.  The website has a pretty cool interactive way to view photos of the pool and spa, BBQ area, shuttle service, office and café.

Anaheim RV Park also offers shuttle service, every 20 to 30 minutes, to Disneyland one hour before park opening and 30 minutes after closing. Continental breakfast is served daily beginning at 8 a.m.
