As a long time cast member of the Disneyland Resort, I have had the opportunity to experience our parks and resorts countless times. Whether visiting with family or friends, the energy and excitement of a day in the parks is all part of the fun. But if I need a breather during the day, one of my favorite ways to recharge is to find a quiet location and just relax.
Silly Symphony Swings at Disney California Adventure park has a beautiful covered promenade. While guests are swinging high above, you can take in the stunning views of Paradise Pier, The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure and The Golden Vine Winery across Paradise Bay.
Also at Disney California Adventure park, Grizzly Trail provides a serene nature walk past Grizzly Falls on the way to Paradise Pier or Pacific Wharf.
At Disneyland park, the Court des Anges in New Orleans Square not only provides a quiet respite, but instantly transports me to another time and place. Even if I’m doing some holiday shopping the beauty of the courtyard inspires.
But my two favorite spots at Disneyland park both provide a different way to experience the scenery. The area by Harbour Galley and Fowler’s Inn offers a riverfront landscape with the gentle sound of lapping water. But for me, nothing beats sitting on the bow of the Mark Twain Riverboat for a picturesque journey on the Rivers of America.
