Do you enjoy going to amusement parks? I really do.
Every time you go into an amusement park, It's like going back to your childhood, when everything appeared so magical.
I've been to a couple of parks including Europa park and Gardaland and for me Disneyland has won the jackpot.
I've been to Disneyland only once and I can't compare it to Disneyworld ('cause I haven't been there yet), but when I entered the park, even with the ongoing lines, I really felt like I'm in a Disney movie.
The atmosphere is great and with those puppets in every corner and the amazing parades, you can't remain indifferent.

A couple of years ago, I could go on a ride and not be afraid. Nowadays, things really changed.
I am very nervous when only thinking of going on the roller coasters.
However, in most cases, I conquer my fear and get going with it.
As you probably know, in Disneyland there are two parks and the park I enjoyed the most was the "California Adventure park".
One of the famous attractions in California Adventure park is the " Tower of Terror ".
Firstly, I don't get it, why is it called an attraction? it really doesn't attract me to come and try it again.
Secondly, I think I really gotten better on my tones, and why is that? 'Cause I screamed like there's no tomorrow on that ride.
That was so scary, I could not stop screaming, those moments when you're going up and suddenly dropping down, gosh just the thinking of it gives me the chills.

If you get the chance and visit Disneyland, you should definitely check out the "world of color" show, It is absolutely marvelous!

Now, I saw some people eating those turkey legs in Disneyland, and I came across this recipe from Sasakitime and tried making it with some changes and it came out really good.
