I went to a part of Disneyland that I had NEVER been to before in all the years of being a Los Angeleno, and it was all thanks in part to a friend who is a Disney aficionado.
I think everyone should go to Disneyland, or any part of Disneyland, be it Downtown or California Adventure, with a Disney fan, as she or he will show you and teach you things about the place that you've never and will never see otherwise.
We went to the area where Disneyland Hotel is, and ate at "Trader Sam's"
And I ordered a burger and a drink there. They serve alcoholic drinks, but they can change certain drinks to non-alcoholic if you ask.
I also got pixie-dusted while walking around in Downtown Disney.
It's not the first time I've been pixie-dusted, but I wanted the badge.
