Disneyland announced this week that they are raising their prices again. And as much as my kids and I love the big mouse, one trip a year is about all we can do. But now that we are full fledged OC residents, we get to take even more advantage of our Knotts Berry Farm passes.
Five years ago we made the harder-than-it-should-have-been decision to not renew our Disneyland passes and switched to Knotts. Curls was five and Red was three. Camp Snoopy was their YouTube before they found YouTube. These days the Snoopy Bounce House is gone and Lucy’s Tugboat is now Rapid River Run. Instead of strollers and hand holding, they now run from ride to ride. Their favorites are Jaguar, WaveSwinger, and the Log Ride. The annual passes are still affordable, including both regular and water park (no blackout dates) and parking. We now have two souvenir bottles instead of one. The kids still cheer when we suggest going. On Super Bowl Sunday we drove the 15 minutes from our house to the park off of Beach, hoping for small crowds due to the big game. The crowds were bigger than we expected but the park was celebrating the Peanuts gang:
They had Instagram worthy backdrops:
Meet and greets with Pigpen, Peppermint Patty and Schroeder:
I need all of these as gifs:
Till next time:
I hope you find passion and happiness this weekend!
