I've always been a Disney girl. So when it came time to plan my bachelorette party last year, there was only one place I wanted to go: the Happiest Place on Earth! Lucky for me, my maid of honor and bridesmaid were both game to make an exhausting one-day trip south to Disneyland to make it happen.

We rented a car and drove to our hotel (the rental car was cheaper than paying for three shuttle bus tickets), then hit the park immediately for a long, exhausting, magical day of celebrations.
We managed to get into the park around 10:30am or so ... and we didn't stop until the park closed down at midnight. We didn't let a little rain stop us (we got ponchos, instead), nor did we let the exhaustion of our early morning slow us down (Disney now serves Starbucks in the parks - hallelujah!).
